The Power of Overnight Beauty Products

Are you doing all that you can to love your skin—when it matters the most? Although it may seem that your entire body checks out when you finally fall into bed at the end of the day, the truth is that your skin is only just getting started. During the overnight hours, your skin goes into what’s commonly known as “recovery” mode, when it starts to repair and renew after a day spent exposed to the elements, dirt, debris, and makeup.

Part of that is due to the body’s increase in melatonin, which makes you feel tired and helps your skin improve its condition. It even helps minimize the damaging effects of exposure to harmful ultraviolet rays! Your human growth hormone (HGH) also goes into overdrive at night. You can thank HGH for improving your cellular turnover rate and improving your skin’s ability to heal. And finally, nighttime is the right time to give your skin the targeted treatment it needs—because those hours are when your skin is most responsive to what you use.

Want to rev up your overnight routine and reap the benefits of the midnight hour? Here’s what we love:

Dr. Brandt Do Not Age Beauty Sleep Serum ($59.99): Serums are genius products to use at any time of the day, but your skin will love using this lightweight formula when the sun sets. It contains Tahitian black pearl extract, which is designed to detoxify the skin—also known as sucking away all of those impurities that threaten to clog pores, cause breakouts, and leave your complexion looking tired. Used daily, it will also soften your skin and improve its tone.

Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu Sleeping Mask ($31.79): You’ve heard all about the benefits of ingesting superfruits, but did you know they’re pretty super for your skin, too? This indulgent mask contains camu camu berry, which is hyper-charged with vitamin C to minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. At the same time, this mask also softens skin to leave you feeling smoother and looking brighter come morning.

GLAMGLOW Dream Duo Overnight Transforming ($46.39): For those who enjoy the beauty of convenience, this product has you covered. It includes a “dream serum,” which sinks right into your skin and contains an elevated infusion of vitamins formulated to smooth and brighten a sallow complexion. “Dream seal,” meanwhile, locks in the potency of the serum with a potent combination of hyaluronic acid and mozuku green algae, which work in tandem to plump up aging skin and leave it fresher and more moisturized.

Gorgeous Makeup for Thanksgiving Day!

Smoky Eye Makeup for a Party Night Look

Smoky Eye Night Look

Makeup, makeup, makeup. What will we do without you? Thanksgiving is tomorrow and it kicks off the start of the holiday season. If you are a natural and nude makeup gal remember the next month will be filled with gatherings with friends and family. It is the best time to have fun and accentuate your best facial features. Gorgeous eyes, lips or high cheekbones? Use makeup to display your beauty!

Katie Holmes smoky eyes and warm lips make her look alluring and sexy. She chose a golden-mocha lip shade with high shine. Now a red or nude lip complements smoky eyes, but gives a look that is cold, but edgy.

We love this makeup look for a Thanksgiving night dinner paired with a sexy black dress or a dress in a warm tone like gold, brown, green, or purple. Here we feature the makeup needed to create this party makeup look!

Step 1: Apply a primer or moisturizer. These will help makeup stay on longer!

Step 2: Grab any smoky eye kit. We love the the
Glo Minerals Alloy Eyes Collection
because it includes eight shades for different shades of smoky eyes. But right now we want smoky, smoldering eyes.

Step 3: Use an eyeshadow brush to shade entire eyelid with second darkest shade. Start brushing lightly until the shade is as dark as you want your smoky eye to look. It’s perfect of you layer it.

Step 4: Apply the darkest shade to the crease of eye. This is the area where it folds.

Step 5: Use the brightest shade, a white or a shimmer and blend it underneath the brow bone or the arch of your eyebrow. This will make your eyes look bright and balance your face.

Step 6: Choose your warm lipstick. To get a shade similar to Katie Holmes, we used the TIGI Cosmetics Lip Creme in Monaco. It gives an incredibly rich color and we love the shine! This one brings lip moisturizers and antioxidants.
