Get your skin to shine.

Mom may not have told you the anti-aging secret that likely included the word retinol, but she did tell you not to go to bed angry and to always wash your face. When it comes to fine lines and large pores, retinol serums are a gentle way to improve both.

Ensure that you drink a lot of water.

Sensitive skin can become parched seemingly overnight, whether the cause is the dry heat indoors or the cool temperatures outside. The Avon Anew Clinical Overnight Hydration Mask is here to help you quench your parched skin with a tall, refreshing drink. This ultra-light gel has hyaluronic acid (which acts like a sponge pulling in moisture) for deep hydration and shea butter to lock in moisture, making it an ideal alternative to heavier creams that can only sit on the surface of the skin. Also, it doesn’t contain any irritants that could exacerbate acne, like parabens or artificial fragrances. You can skip a day of application because it retains moisture for up to two days.

Avoid serious injury to your neck by

Your typical post-shower lotioning routine likely includes applying cream to your elbows, knees, and hands. But some neglected part of your body? Your spine! Wrinkles can appear on your neck just as quickly as on your face if you don’t take care to keep the skin supple and hydrated.

In order to strengthen your neck, experts recommend five different exercises.

Achieve a phony sheen.

We hope you haven’t used a tanning bed since high school (or ever), but even if you have, it’s nice to have that warm, just-back-from-the-tropics glow every once in a while. Take, for instance, the Brazilliance Maracuja Self Tanner and Mitt from Tarte. This hybrid gel contains vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin E, and sunflower seed oil to hydrate your skin without the typical self-tanner smell. We recommend watching an extra episode of Netflix while standing up to get that natural-looking summer glow, even if it means waiting 30 minutes before getting under the covers and eight hours before shaving your legs.

Stop the clock on aging right now

If you’re looking for an anti-aging product that works while you sleep, consider Skin Authority’s Night Revitalizer. The sugar cane-based alpha hydroxy formula exfoliates and brightens with minimal redness or irritation. Moreover, it is easy on the wallet.

In particular, if you’ve ever suffered from acne, you may be painfully conscious of how large your pores are. Even the most powerful concealer won’t be able to calm them down if they’re inflamed or clogged. Consider using BeautyRx by Dr. Schultz Dermstick for Pores to help unclog pores and calm any inflammation. Glycolic acid, the product’s hero ingredient, breaks down the “glue” that keeps dead skin cells from flaking off and revealing newer, healthier skin underneath. To see results, you need only take a tiny amount each night.

Make Your Large Pores Disappear!

Attempt to relax your hair

Your locks get a lot of attention, but not much love, what with the necessary but dreaded haircuts you have to get and the constant assault from heat styling. Hairfinity Nourishing Botanical Oil can be massaged through your hair before bed to restore elasticity to dry, brittle locks. Hair is smoothed, its elasticity is restored, and its resistance to split ends and breakage is increased as a result of the treatment’s dual action on the scalp and hair follicles. You’ll also enjoy the light scent, which is a medley of ingredients like sweet almond oil, lavender, cinnamon, and more.

Listed below are eleven different hair masks that have been approved by stylists.

Have a shower that will put you to sleep

If you can leave work at 5 o’clock and get to your 5:30 o’clock exercise class on time, you’ll feel like a total badass. In spite of the fact that you are increasing your muscle mass (and thus complying with your doctor’s orders), you may find it difficult to fall asleep because your metabolism is still revved up. ThisWorks is a company that provides care around the clock, with a specific product line designed to work its magic while you sleep. A product to consider is their Deep Sleep Shower Gel, which is hypoallergenic, mildly scented, and thoroughly cleans the skin to help you relax and drift off to sleep after you get out of the shower.

Get your teeth whiter

Your teeth aren’t as white as you’d like them to be, but you don’t have the energy to deal with strips, trays, and all that jazz every day. The Dr. Brite Teeth Whitening Pen is a convenient alternative to traditional teeth bleaching methods; after just two days of use, it promises to lighten tooth color by two shades. Thanks to the dentist who formulated it and the menthol in it, your snoozed-in good morning kiss might not be quite as offensive.

Long eyelashes are in.

If you’re always wishing your eyelashes were a little bit longer after applying mascara, or if you’re envious of your friend’s two-year-old toddler’s eye game, you might want to look into a lash-enhancing serum that promotes hair growth.

Contours, smooth as silk

You aren’t quite ready to get Botox injections, but you have noticed that fine lines and wrinkles have begun to appear around your expressions. FROWNIES Facial Patches, which can be worn while sleeping, are effective at smoothing out “the elevens” (indents between your eyes) and horizontal forehead wrinkles without the use of chemicals or needles. Wearing them while sleeping is especially beneficial because when you’re unconscious, your facial muscles are at rest and you’re not forming wrinkles by expressing emotion. This preventative beauty treatment requires little to no work on your part but may yield significant benefits down the road.

Lips, soften

Your lips may be dry and chapped in the morning, especially if you snore or breathe through your mouth while you sleep. Pre-moistening your lips before bed is preferable to applying lip balm first thing in the morning.

Why Your Lips Are Chapped and What You Can Do About It

Eliminate wrinkling in the bust area.

As many as 86% of people regularly wake up with vertical wrinkles on their chests from sleeping on their sides. There are a lot of products that claim they can smooth the often-ignored décolleté, but the SiO Beauty Overnight Wrinkle Smoothing Pad stands out because it is both easy to use (you just stick it on your chest like a sticker) and clinically proven to significantly reduce the appearance of chest wrinkles after just one night of use. The skin is protected from sagging thanks to the way in which this product works by sealing in moisture, restoring collagen, and keeping the skin from folding inward.
