With increased pollution and changed lifestyle, we are ageing fast. Our skin can become dull, dehydrated, congested and even aged easily and quickly. We have more time to spend sitting in front of our laptops and get affected by blue light which unfortunately also contributes to ageing. However, Beauty Industry has progressed so much that we have now some really fab products available that can bring visible results to improve your skin overnight. In this post, you will find some of my current faves for overnight treatments.

Pixi Beauty’s Nourishing sleep mask is an intensive youth-preserving mask that deeply hydrates and repairs complexion overnight. This mask seals in any serum or treatment applied underneath and leaves you with a silky smooth complexion. The formula is rich in fruit & flower oils to soothe, arginine to strengthen, and hyaluronic acid to plump the skin. On days when my skin looks dull and tired, this nourishing sleep mask boosts glow overnight and I wake up with soft and glow-y skin.

- Ren Wake Wonderful Night-Time Facial | £32 for 40ml
This is a 3-phase treatment formulated to rejuvenate and brighten up the skin. This luxurious facial treatment provides three benefits – exfoliation, reinvigoration, and essential hydration. Phase one is exfoliation where AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) lactic and glycolic acids with enzymes blend to repair uneven texture, support natural cell turnover, and reduce surface pigmentation. Phase two is massaging, which combines glycogen, magnesium, and omega oils to energize, revitalize, and heal. Phase three is hydration, where sodium lactate gently raises the skin’s PH and attracts water to the skin to plump and deeply hydrate. You can use this treatment alone over cleansed skin or apply after serum and prior to moisturizer of your choice.
- Caudalie Overnight Detox Oil* | £30 for 30ml
I have mentioned about this oil several times before on my social channel and blog. This 100% natural dry oil renews & protects overtired skin while sleeping. This oil is ideal for skin exposed to stress, pollution, UV’s & other free radicals. The skin is detoxified and smoothed and the complexion is refreshed. The oil is infused with anti-oxidant grape-seed, regenerating rose hip, purifying neroli, soothing lavender and detoxifying carrot oils, to promote cellular renewal & toxin elimination. The oil can be applied every evening on cleansed skin either alone or under moisturizer.

If you have dry and dehydrated skin, this is the mask to go for. This moisture-replenishing mask is enriched with avocado and apricot kernel oils, which effectively prepare skin for next-day environmental aggressors. Japanese seaweed in this mask repairs the skin’s barrier function to prevent future dehydration and signs of premature ageing. This mask is a perfect pick-me-up option for days when my skin needs some extra moisture.
- Clarins Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil | £29.40 for 30ml
This rich essential oil treatment nourishes and revitalises dehydrated skin. This best-selling oil from Clarins contains extracts of Rosewood, Patchouli and Blue Orchid to tone, revitalise and restore radiance to moisture-depleted skin. Hazelnut Oil helps prevent moisture loss and the formation of fine lines. This oil has 100% pure plant extracts with no preservatives. This oil is a great choice for autumn/winter when skin needs some extra moisture.

For peeps with skin prone to congestion or for acne scarring, hyper-pigmentation, age spots, this offering from Alpha-H can be your best friend. Alpha-H Liquid gold is a highly effective resurfacing and firming lotion for your skin. This toner visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, hyper-pigmentation, sun damage, acne, scarring and breakouts. The complex formula consists of glycolic acid, recognised for its rejuvenating qualities combined with the soothing and softening properties of liquorice root extract. Together these gently stimulate the production of collagen whilst creating a complexion that is lighter, clearer, and more even. This treatment toner also keeps blackheads/whiteheads at bay.
- Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate | £37 for 30ml
This night time treatment is a replenishing elixir of pure essential oils and distilled botanicals to visibly restore the appearance of skin by morning. This formula works by enhancing skin’s natural night-time recovery process. Additionally the formula is not only paraben-free, but also 99.8% natural-derived. A few of the key ingredients include Lavender Essential Oil, Primrose Oil, and Kiehl’s-signature ingredient squalane, derived from olives that boost the texture, tone and radiance of skin. I like to apply 2-3 drops of this concentrate before applying moisturizer and I love how nice & soft my skin looks following morning.
I have been taking Modafinil (Provigil) from www.health-canada-pharmacy.com/modafinil.html for 2 weeks. 1 tablet per day is normal dose, 2 tablets are a lot so that you cannot do anything except to do sport. I weight 75 kg and it greatly helps me that I do not want to sleep. The effect is long-term. One of the side effects is that I’m a bit nervous but in general, I’m satisfied with med.
These were my top favourite products that not only bring incredible results with continuous use but also bring visible results as overnight treatments.
Until next time..
