OUR fast-paced lives often mean we’re always on the go, and sometimes our beauty regimes go out the window.
Luckily, these overnight treatments will sort your skin, hair and nails as you snooze – perfect for the busy twenty-first century woman.
The Body Builder
From over-styling to hormonal changes, our tresses take a battering, causing strands to fall out or become fragile and visibly shrink.
Did you know one in five women suffers from hair loss or thinning locks?* Eek! But worry not.
Just apply a few drops of Nioxin Night Density Rescue, £39.99, to your roots (hair can be wet or dry) and let the ginger root extract, caffeine and vitamin E repair any damage to the scalp.
This powerful antioxidant combo also works by removing any free radicals (caused by pollution, among other things) that could be building up in the scalp and blocking the oxygen hair needs to grow.
A whopping 81% of people found it made their hair look thicker and feel stronger.
The Sag Shifter
Find yourself tapping at your chin or pulling back the loose skin on your cheeks in the mirror? We feel you!
At around age 30, the skin stops producing collagen and stores of it drop every year, bringing our jawline with it.
Halt the sag with Decléor Prolagène Lifting Flash Mask For Massage, £49.
Designed for use before bed, apply it with a simple one-minute massage technique, concentrating on the forehead, cheeks and jawline for 20 seconds each.
The mask contains rye extract to tighten the skin and a specific type of lavender – lavandula angustifolia, grown in the south of France – said to limit the breakdown of collagen.
The relaxing scent will help you nod off, too.
The Glow Getter
As sunless winter days set in, your skin can become dull and grey.
So concentrate on giving your face a glow by adding a few drops of Tan-Luxe Sleep Oil, £34, to cleansed skin before you hit the hay.
Designed to develop as you snooze – so perfect for super-busy party season – it contains organically sourced, naturally derived tanning ingredient DHA for a gorgeous faux glow without the telltale biscuity scent.
Plus, the raspberry seed, kendi, argan, marula, jojoba and apricot essential oils will nourish and moisturise skin, making the results look natural and last longer.
The Flake Fighter
As the temperature drops, so does the humidity in the air, causing the water in your skin to evaporate more quickly. Hello, flaky, tight, snake-like bod.
Rescue your pins from the peel with Sarah Chapman Skinesis Overnight Body Treatment, £54.
With the same intensive ingredients usually reserved for facial products, just four to six pumps will cover you from neck to toe.
Your body will drink up the hydrating combination of baobab, coconut, argan and camellia flower to leave you feeling silky and smooth.
Oh, and the anti-ageing peptides will tighten and firm your skin, all while you catch some much-needed Zs.
The Brittle Buster
Much like your skin, your nails suffer from SAD-like symptoms.
Cold air and central heating can dry out your tips, making them more fragile and prone to breaking.
You may also notice during the winter months that your gel mani peels away after a few days or your polish chips quickly – which is also caused by dehydration.
Nails Inc Overnight Detox Mask, £15, contains açai, spirulina and green tea to treat and repair.
Simply add a few drops to each nail bed and massage in, coating the entire area for stronger talons come morning.
