Night isn’t just your chance to revisit that awesome recurring dream you’ve been having. It’s literally and figuratively your time to get your beauty rest, so that you not only wake up feeling poised and refreshed, but so your cells have enough time to do their turnaround.
In this spirit, here are the top three nighttime beauty fixes to go to bed with:
1. Heavy night cream. There are specialized products developed for virtually any age range, but heavy cream is a beauty staple for anyone ranging from women in their 20s to mature women hitting retirement age. This soothing dose of moisturizing goodness will leave your skin feeling refreshed, recharged and smooth as a baby’s bottom.
2. Heavy-duty lip balm. Even in the summer when your lips aren’t so dry, it’s important to keep your lips moisturized at night. Lips are more sensitive than the rest of your face, so they need extra TLC, especially at night.
3. Cuticle cream or hand cream. It’s important to moisturize your body every day, but hands tend to take the worst beating. For that reason, it’s important to give your manos (and your cuticles, if you’re a biter) a bit of extra loving before you hit the sack.
