HSN: 4 Overnight Beauty Products You Should be Using

While I was in Sweden, I received a very pleasant mail from the Community Outreach Manager for HSN, Jackie Samoraj, who informed me that one of their expert beauty authors (Carly Woods) had put together a post that she believed my readers would enjoy reading.

Of course I'd love to share this great post with you all as I personally also found it very helpful. My blog consists of tips to make ourselves more beautiful and this sure is a post you don't want to miss out on!

The post is called 4 Overnight Beauty Products You Should be Using and before I fall into an endless sea of blabberin', let me just show you what I'm talking about~

"When it comes to beauty sleep, I think we generally fall into two categories; those who have managed 8 hours of sleep a night and those who haven’t. For the ones who haven’t, they consequently have to do a darn good job faking it.

So, why does this happen? Simply put, sleep is an essential component to an effective skin care regimen, a time when our skin heals and repairs itself. Therefore, if you’re not getting enough sleep, your skin may start to suffer.

If you need help utilizing the small number of hours you do get or you want to ensure you are stretching your 8 hours as far as they can go, you need the right tools. There are specific night time products that can work in harmony with your skin’s renewal process. More than not, these products will be heavier and thicker consistencies. For this reason, washing your face in the morning is equally as important as washing it at night – you need to remove these heavy products or your skin may become congested.

First, I always recommend using a serum. Facial serums are used to address specific problems such as wrinkles, aging and brightness. Apply a few drops to clean skin and using your hands press the serum into your skin.

2. Add The Primer

Especially in the colder months, you want to follow step one with a layer of oil for added hydration. Plus, you will wake up with beautiful and plump skin.

3. Don’t Forget To Moisturize!

Lastly, simply apply a moisturizer.  My advice is to opt for a comforting and hydrating formula. I like to see it as a blanket; keeping in the goodness of the serum and oil.

4. Last But Not Least - Give Your Eyes Some Love

Don’t forget an eye cream! Try to use a powerful wrinkle reducing formula. Make sure you always use a very tiny amount; overloading the skin around your eyes with too much of a heavy product can cause puffiness and sometimes breakouts.

On days when you have little to no time or just want to fall into bed, try an overnight facial. Now this doesn't mean you have to lie still with your face up to ensure you don’t cover your pillow in product. You can use facial creams that are highly concentrated and you use like a serum or moisturizer for a powerful whack of goodness."

On their new skincare page (THIS ONE) you will able to search for exactly the types of products your skin needs. A lot of the tips in this post are also being highlighted there. Go look!

My own night routine isn't even close to being as throughout as this.
What I do is to remove my make-up with random make-up remover wipes, wash and scrub my face in warm hot water and, when it's dry, I apply a layer of my Snail Recovery Gel from Mizon.
(You can find my review on it HERE).

Although my snail gel has helped my skin to tighten up and look more healthy, I still tend to have very dry skin, making it impossible for me to use certain make-up because it looks flakey.
I have wanted an eye cream for a while now but I never thought of using a primer like that.
The idea sounds interesting though and so does the facial serum. If I could get my hands on a serum dealing with redness I sure would try it out!
But perhaps I should try adding primer to my nightly rituals?

What do you do before going to bed? Do you have one big routine or are you lazy like me?
