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.
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.”
