12 Overnight Skincare Treatments We Love

On a quest to wake up flawless but still hunting for the perfect night cream? Whether you’re prone to blemishes or looking to smooth fine lines and restore a rested, youthful complexion, these are SL’s favourite formulas to stock up on. Get ready to supercharge your beauty sleep…

Best for a Quick Fix

Need to bring your skin back to life in record time? Look no further than these hero products. Take cult Spanish brand Natura Bissé’s High Definition Patches – inspired by in-clinic micro-needling treatments, each patch is covered with miniscule spikes of hyaluronic acid that painlessly pierce the outer layer of the skin for an instantly plumped-up complexion. Skin lost its lustre? Try SkinCeuticals’ brand new Glycolic 10 Renew Overnight, a potent blend of 10% glycolic acid and 2% phytic acid proven to boost skin’s clarity and brightness.

Best for Anti-Ageing

If you’re on a mission to boost your skin’s firmness and plumpness, then allow us to point you in the direction of Elemis’ much-hyped Pro-Collagen Overnight Matrix, which has already racked up impressive reviews from bloggers and beauty editors alike. The clever formula targets areas of the face where stress shows most and results can be seen after just one night. Another noteworthy newcomer is Sarah Chapman’s Icon Night Smartsome – the cult facialist’s most intensive product to date is packed with vitamin A and a powerhouse peptide complex that guarantees serious results.

Best for Blemishes

Battling blemishes and oiliness? Incorporate a hard-working night treatment into your routine for a clearer complexion come morning. Allies Of Skin’s genius 1A Overnight Mask is packed with cell-energising actives, clinically proven to reduce acne lesions by up to 70% in just three weeks. Or try Paula’s Choice 1% Retinol Treatment to tackle blemishes and fine lines in one fell swoop. For emergency breakouts, apply Kate Somerville’s cult EradiKate to the affected area – it contains AHAs to slough away the appearance of large pores, zinc oxide to absorb excess sebum and a heavy hit of sulphur to help dry out spots.

Best for Sensitive Skin

Those prone to sensitive skin, irritation and redness should make a beeline for Dermalogica’s Sound Sleep Cocoon, a cocktail of skin-soothing ingredients which is paraben, colour and fragrance-free. If you’re a fan of an oil, Kypris’ Moonlight Catalyst also comes highly recommended – a hefty dose of gentle enzymatic exfoliants eliminate pore-clogging debris, whilst essential fatty acids bolster skin’s strength and resilience. Similarly, if you love the idea of using an acid (always best used in the evening) but have sensitive skin, The Ordinary’s Mandelic Acid 10% is the one you’ve been waiting for; mandelic acid penetrates the skin more slowly, making it a gentler option than the likes of glycolic and salicylic acids.
