With the dry winter weather in full effect, I’ve taken to practicing different beauty routines that promote moisture and radiance. One that I’ve really enjoyed has been giving myself sleeping facials right before bed (applying rich, nourishing products that work on my face all night long while I’m sleeping). I’ve noticed a big change in how my skin feels in the morning – since I sleep with a fan on, I usually wake up to dry, lackluster skin. Ever since I started following this 3-step routine though, my skin has been completely renewed by the time I wake up.
First, I start out by slathering on a nice layer of Glossier’s Moon Mask. This has been one of the biggest game changers to my skincare routine. It’s so incredibly hydrating, and my skin just drinks up every bit of moisture it can get from this mask. If you suffer from dry skin (especially during this time of the year), this is definitely one of those miracle products that you need in your arsenal. I usually let this sit for about 20 minutes while I finish up any computer work and get ready for bed, and then I rinse it off so I can move on to step 2.
Once I’ve patted my skin dry, I apply the Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial* all over my face and down onto my neck. I’ve always been a big fan of Korres, and this product has really stood out to me as one of their best. Besides dryness, I also struggle with dullness, uneven skin tone, and texture issues. With this treatment, I get to wake up to skin that looks healthy and radiant, which makes it so much easier to apply makeup in the morning.
The final step to this bedtime facial is applying a layer of the Water Sleeping Mask from Laneige all over the face. This product is crucial to the entire facial because I feel that it really locks everything in for the night. This gel masks quickly absorbs into the skin so you don’t have to worry about anything getting all over your pillows throughout the night, and it ensures your skin stays super hydrated all night long. This is a fantastic mask all by itself, but delivers even better results when used with the other two products.
