All day long, your skin is on the defense protecting itself from free radical damage, UV exposure, and pollutants in the air. When comes that glorious time of day to get unready and go to sleep, your skin has already begun going into regeneration mode.
Despite our daily squabbles with our skin, the night is when it thrives, repairing the damage done during the day and increasing the production of substances that will revamp it and protect it tomorrow. While you sleep your body produces melatonin, which is known for it's antioxidant properties, cortisol, which helps repair skin damage, and collagen, which minimizes fine lines and wrinkles. So that's why our skin looks so darn fresh (and a little puffy) when we wake up!
The products that we use before bed can also help our skin do it's thing, and that's why it's so important to wash off the day and give it the boost it needs. Products like Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate, REN Clean Skincare Evercalm Overnight Recovery Balm, and Bliss What a Melon Overnight Facial Mask are all SG favorites.
We want to know about your skincare Coup de Grâce; the last coat, the last swab, the final layer of icing on the cake that is your flawless complexion. Add Your Review and tell us about the last product you apply every night.
