One of the questions we get asked quite often is whether there really is a difference between products which are created for daytime and nighttime. The answer to that question is a resounding “yes”! Products which are created specifically for night are usually much richer and thicker, and are intended for use while you’re asleep so that they have longer to absorb into and work on your skin. Most night products wouldn’t be suitable for wearing under make up as the consistency isn’t quite right, but it’s possible to give your skin a much needed overhaul by using the correct products before you go to bed. Here are five of our favourite overnight products to boost your complexion and allow you to wake up with a radiant glow
This overnight mask from Aromatherapy Associates is designed to give your skin a potent boost of anti-ageing power. This is a deeply nourishing anti-ageing face mask that helps to smooth out lines and firm the skin, treating you to an overnight facial. It contains rose and frankincense essential oils and the potent botanical extracts, as well as strawberry seed extracts to deeply hydrate the skin and nourishing oils of rice germ and millet seed help protect against environmental damage.

The use of the word “matrix” in the title of this product might give you images of something futuristic – and you’d be quite right! This highly complex formula contains smart drone technology which provides accelerated lifting effect through increased collagen support. his revolutionary formula works throughout the night to help restore the natural balance to the skin, creating a protective matrix to help seal in hydration. A youthful, firmer feeling, less crumpled appearance is revealed by the morning.
