Beauty Sleep: Products That Help Improve Your Looks Overnight

Good Morning America ABC - Common Skin Problems Associated With Stressview feature on ABCNews.Go.com

Dr. Whitney Bowe visited Good Morning America to talk about why nighttime is the best time for your skin to repair and regenerate – truly validating the idea of beauty sleep.

The demands of work, children, errands and a host of other activities leave precious little time for people to indulge in lengthy beauty routines — but that doesn’t mean you still can’t take care of your skin.

Allure magazine’s Sophia Panych appeared on “GMA” on Wednesday to share the head-to-toe skin beauty treatments that she says you can apply before bed and they’ll work their revitalizing magic while you sleep.

The Products

For wrinkles: Yes to Blueberries Age Refresh Deep Wrinkle Night Cream. Panych said the paraben-free moisturizer soaks into the skin in two minutes and is thick enough to tackle parched skin without leaving it feeling greasy.

For under-eye circles: Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye cream. Panych said the cream moisturizes and brightens under-eye circles, reduces puffiness and fights fine lines. The cream also contains lavender, “the perfect soothing scent to fall asleep to,” she said.

For an overnight tan: James Read’s Sleep Mask Tan. According to Panych, “this silky aloe-and-hyaluronic-acid-spiked gel delivers a super subtle golden tint that’s incredibly natural,” adding, “it soaks in quickly, so the only thing it tans is you — not your sheets.”

For luminous skin: Garnier Skin Renew Clinical Dark Spot Overnight Peel. Panych said the product’s gel formula “uses propylene glycol and glycerin to moisturize and soothe skin, so you wake up with a dewier, glowier, more even complexion.”

For more hydrated hands and feet: Panych called Jo Malone Vitamin E Nourishing Hand Treatment “a skin-softening superhero.” She recommended Soap & Glory Heel Genius Amazing Foot Cream, saying “This blue, floral-scented cream helps remove dead skin cells. Massage it onto your feet and put on a pair of socks before bed to get the full effect.”
