How to Fake a Full Night’s Beauty Sleep with Skincare

If you want flawless skin but have trouble fitting a full eight hours of sleep into your busy schedule, skincare can help you fake it ’til you make it.

Let’s face it: Even though most medical professionals recommend eight hours of sleep a night, there are few people who are able to make that happen. Life is busy, and often the first thing we let go of is a full night’s sleep. When you miss out on even just two or three hours a night, your skin suffers, and it shows. Skincare can help solve the problems your sleepless nights can cause, such as under-eye bags, dullness and uneven texture. From a brightening skincare regimen to an ultra-hydrating one, here are the best skincare products and regimens to help you look refreshed and rested.

Rehydrate with skincare

Tiredness is more evident when your skin is dehydrated. This means it won’t be as plump as it usually is, and your pores could produce more sebum in response to the dehydration, making your skin oilier. Drinking more water can help this, but the best way to get flawless skin is topically, with skin products. The best skincare regimen to treat dehydrated skin should definitely include hyaluronic acid, like the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care line. All three Daily Liquid Care products deliver a boost of hydration to skin, thanks to hyaluronic acid and aloe water.

For oily skin: Choose L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Day & Night Moisturizer for Oily Skin and apply it after cleansing and toning your skin both morning and night. Wait at least a minute for the moisturizer to absorb before applying any other skincare products.

For normal skin: L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Day & Night Moisturizer for Normal Skin will bring the bounce back to your skin. Again, apply it after washing your face in the morning and before bed.

For very dry skin: L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Extra Dry Balm will help soothe your skin if you’re prone to flakiness and sensitivity. Apply it in the morning and evening after your cleanser, and layer a moisturizing mask overtop if you want even more hydration while you sleep.

Eliminate uneven skin tone with skincare

The majority of cell turnover on your face happens while you sleep, so if you limit how much sleep you get, chances are you’ll get a buildup of dead cells. And that buildup can leave you with uneven skin. The best skin treatments to help minimize uneven skin tone have a blend of soothing ingredients to limit redness and acids that gently slough away the buildup of dead cells. L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Moisturizer for mature skin is formulated with Imperial Peony to help give skin that’s showing signs of aging its rosiness back and LHA to exfoliate away any buildup and stimulate further skin renewal. Add it to your morning and evening skincare routine, after your cleanser and serum, and massage it over your face using a circular motion. You’ll be left with a smoother, younger-looking complexion—as if you’ve slept for a full eight hours.

Brighten with skincare

Nothing says well rested like bright, glowing skin—and when you’re not well rested, skin looks dull. As with uneven skin tone, this dullness if often caused by a buildup of dead skin cells, and when you don’t get enough rest, your cells don’t turn over as efficiently. Skincare rich in ingredients like glycolic acid, vitamin C and retinol can help get rid of those dead cells and leave you with a bright, lit-from-within complexion. The L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Bright Reveal line of products has all three of those ingredients, and making them a part of your skincare regimen can help you fake a good night’s sleep.

Cleanse: Start with L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Bright Reveal Face Cleanser & Toner, formulated with gentle micro pearls and glycolic acid. It will get rid of dead skin and other impurities to improve texture and add brightness.

Exfoliate: If you still feel like there’s buildup on your skin, try L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Bright Reveal Peel Pads. Like a mini at-home facial, the higher concentration of glycolic acid will peel away any dead skin left behind after cleansing and help resurface your face and make it glow.

Moisturize: Moisturizing, especially after using acids on your skin, is a super-important step in your skincare routine when you’re trying to achieve a brighter complexion. L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Bright Reveal SPF 30 Moisturizer, with vitamin C and Pro-Retinol, will help hydrate your skin, and the SPF will keep it protected from harmful UVA and UVB rays.

Nighttime: For more intense hydration overnight, use L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Bright Reveal Night Moisturizer. Again, the glycolic acid will help resurface skin, while the brightening infusion with both vitamin C and pro-retinol means you’ll wake up to glowing, younger-looking skin.
