Overnight beauty treatments

Every day we strive to perfection. Every day we want to awake happier, more confident and beautiful. Beauty industry can help of course and today, I'm coming to you with five miracle workers that promise you an overnight miracle and boy do they deliver. Are you ready to wake up to the new you? 

Grow Gorgeous Overnight To Gorgeous Hair Masque* | £22.00 for 190ml

Grow Gorgeous Overnight To Gorgeous Hair Masque

I love overnight hair treatments nearly as much as I do skin care ones. Great mask or oils can make such a difference if kept on hair for 12hrs plus. With Grow Gorgeous Overnight To Gorgeous, you will awake to shiny and healthy hair, that's a promise. I apply it on to damp hair ensuring everything is covered and masque massaged into the scalp and lengths. Wearing a shower cap overnight may not be the sexy look you're after but believe me, it's worth it. In the morning I wash my hair twice ensuring all residue is removed and blow dry as usual. The masque not only works to give your hair more strength and shine but also helps manage the hair and make any hairstyle last longer. With Agaricus Active Complex and Tamarin Fruit Seeds, the hair treatment prevents frizziness and help repair the strands from within leaving your hair softer, smoother and deeply hydrated.

Alpha H Liquid Gold £33.50 for 100ml

Alpha H Liquid Gold

The all-rounder from Alpha H is a brilliant exfoliator for dehydrated skin, be that drier or more oily. The star of the show - 5% Glycolic Acid derived from sugar cane works wonders at removing skin's dead cells and lowering skin PH which together helps stimulate cellular renewal. There are the couple of ways to use it. Most powerful is to apply around 8-10 drops to your face after cleansing and toning with the synthetic brush to your face, neck and décolletage. If left on its own overnight, it'll work the hardest at exfoliating your skin to awaken its true glow. You can also use it instead of toner, by soaking the cotton pad with the product and applying to your face. Again the choice is yours, you either leave it on its own or follow up with the rest of your skincare. I don't tend to use AHA liquids on the cotton pads, as it's wasteful and instead use the synthetic brush. I find the products to work better this way. If you worry about your dry skin, don't. You will not feel the usual 'no skin care' crust and tightening. It's definitely hyped up but there are plenty of cheaper alternatives, just check out The Ordinary or Bravura ranges for alternatives!

♦ Ingredients/INCI
Aqua, Alcohol Denat., Glycerin, Hydrolysed Silk, Glycolic Acid, Potassium Hydroxide, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Glycyrrhiza Glabra Extract.

The Body Shop Vitamin E Sink In Moisture Sleeping Mask £11.00 for 100ml

The Body Shop Vitamin E Sink In Moisture Sleeping Mask

What a gem this face mask is! It's super creamy yet light and if applied in the evening and left overnight, it provides the skin with immense hydration. Not one for problematic skin for sure, but if you're dry to the combination you'll love it. I apply a thick layer in the evening after cleansing and skin care to give my sensitive skin the boost it needs. I find that combination of Vitamin E, Soia Oil and Wheatgerm Oil works beautifully to protect and deeply hydrate. In the morning I remove the residue whilst cleansing. It gives my skin that ultra level of moisture and if I could recommend any hangover cure for the skin, it'll be it. Brilliant gel-cream formula ensures it!

Tan Luxe The Face Illuminating Self Tan Drops in Light/Medium £35.00 for 30ml

Tan Luxe The Face Illuminating Self Tan Drops in Light/Medium

If your holiday is behind you but you're not planning on letting go of the bronze glow it gave you, try Tan Luxe Drops. Two drops are all you need to achieve the healthy bronzed look overnight. You can add them to your moisturiser or face oil, whichever you prefer and I guarantee you'll wake up loving what you see. Forget your typical fake tan scent too, by mixing the product with your faves, you will not have to worry about the smell anymore. I find that it can be harsh on the hands so washing them after an application is a must. The drops are super effective and efficient. If applied every day you'll quickly build up an amazing tan or you can do what I do and apply it every 2-3 days just to add the touch of bronze to my complexion. Whichever you prefer is up to you of course. It's that one fake tan product I use and it says a lot as I rarely ever tan.
