Anti-ageing in your sleep

Womansleepinghero.jpg

Ask any dermatologist worth their salt about the importance of sleep and they’ll tell you the same thing: cell turnover is at its most active while you are sleeping, so it’s the ideal time to maximise on the skin renewal with a targeted night time skin product. Stylist presents five slumber-time saviours that will have you looking and feeling well-rested by the morning

Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Overnight Hair Rescue, £35.25

A beauty essential for those with hair crying out for a little TLC, this lightweight serum absorbs quickly (so fancy pillowcases will be safe from harm), infuses hair with a nourishing blend of proteins, vitamins and moisturising agents. Frazzled ends are smoother after one night - this is serious hair-transforming stuff. 0845 458 2825

The Treatment Range: Silk Pillow Slip, £25

It might sound like something Hans Christian Anderson might have cooked up, but this dainty pillow case, made from 19 momme pure silk, cushions the skin like no other. It’s peppered with cellular albumen fibre which is believed to help reduce the signs of ageing. And, for those of us that sleep face-down, it’s a hero for reducing tell-tale sleep creases - which is one less thing to be embarrassed about at work. thetreatmentrooms.com

Estee Lauder New Advanced Night Repair Eye Synchronized Complex

There are eye creams and then there are Estee Lauder eye creams. The latest from this innovative skincare stable is a whipped up blend of anti-oxidants and high levels of hyaluronic acid (a hydrating substance which occurs naturally in the skin). The result? Reduced puffiness, smoother skin and minimised fine lines. Keep the little brown pot on your bedside table so you remember to gently press a small amount into the outer eye area each night and witness the compliments rolling in. esteelauder.co.uk

Rodial Glamtox Night, £88

Pegged as the non-needle alternative to cosmetic laser treatments, Glamtox Night claims to tackle three of the biggest skincare concerns; fade hyperpigmentation (uneven skin tone), reduce pore size, and – curiously – thicken the skin, whilst you are sleeping. All of which are backed up by clinical tests – a staggering 94% of trial volunteers ‘experienced a definite reduction of hyperpigmentation.’ And if the success of its predecessor, Glamtox, is anything to go by, it’ll already be a cult favourite. rodial.co.uk

Strivectin Overnight Resurfacing Serum, £ 49

From the brand behind the sell-out stretch mark cream, comes a cooling serum packed with naturally exfoliating enzymes (red algae and pear extracts) which help to resurface the skin and dissolve dead skin cells. With a soothing rose scent, this is the perfect union of hardcore science and the power of nature. harrods.com
