The Overnight Skincare Miracle Workers.


Finding the skincare that works for you is very much and trial and error process, not to mention a never-ending learning experience. It was only very recently that I discovered the wonders of overnight skin treatments, and since bringing them into my skincare routine I can confirm that they have changed my skin for the better. Overnight skincare is the ideal way to give your skin the nourishment it craves throughout the day, particularly if you've been on the go all day, if you're feeling run-down, if it's that time of the month or even if you're simply in need of a serious skin boost. Overnight treatments accelerate and enhance the natural rejuvenation that sleep gives to our skin, and so they are the perfect pick-me-up companion. With my skin being normal to combination yet quite often dehydrated, I have recently discovered two products that work hand-in-hand to replenish my skin throughout the night and promise a healthy, radiant complexion by the morning.

PIXI OVERNIGHT GLOW SERUM: Being a huge fan of the Pixi skincare range already, thanks to the marvelous Glow Tonic, I simply couldn't wait to give this product a try. Although quite a recent purchase of mine, I have already cemented a firm love for this product and have started to notice a difference in my skin since the first use. This serum is described as a "miracle" that works while you sleep to reveal a brighter complexion. It is packed full of skin-enriching ingredients such as glycolic acid (10%), cucumber and aloe vera extracts, as well as vitamins A, C and E. A few drops of this product in the evening is the perfect remedy to relieve stressed and tired skin. It absorbs into the skin just moments after application, so you don't have to worry about your skin feeling greasy or slippery going to bed. When you wake up the next morning, you can see a noticeable difference in the smoothness and radiance of your complexion. So far I've found that this product delivers on its promises and is an exceptional alternative to some more expensive exfoliating serums.

ORIGINS DRINK UP INTENSIVE OVERNIGHT MASK: This divine, deeply nourishing, hydrating mask is undeniably one of my favourite skincare products of all-time. Although primarily aimed at dry skin, this product can also work wonders for dehydrated skin which I tend to suffer from more often than not, particularly when I'm run-down. Once again, this product is packed full of nourishing ingredients such as avocado oil, apricot kernel oil and Japanese seaweed which work to repair the skin's barrier and to prevent future moisture loss. I find that less is more with this product - a thin layer of this is just enough to reap the skin-boosting benefits, as I've discovered too much of this product can lead to breakouts. Regardless, used in moderation this intense treatment delivers on its promise to quench your skin's thirst overnight.

Using these two products hand-in-hand as part of my evening skincare routine has, without a doubt, made a welcomed difference to my skin. Each of these products are quite active and intense, and so are recommended for use 2-3 times per week or as often as needed. They are the ideal products to have as part of a pamper session and are a lazy girl's dream as zero effort is required for them to work their magic.

What are your favourite overnight skincare products?
