What I wouldn’t do for one rejuvenating day at the spa right about now. Seriously, is that too much to ask for? I just want one measly day, where I can just listen to some calming and slightly annoying “world music” maybe dream about living on a yacht for a bit, and possibly sip some oolong tea in peace.
I know it’s not going to happen any time soon because it’s impossible to accomplish anything beauty related with the holiday hustle and bustle. I can barely find time to do my laundry. I’ve been wearing mismatched socks for about two weeks now. Footsies anyone?
So, when I feel like I look a little drab and have absolutely no time to beautify myself. I like to do some of the new overnight treatments that are out on the market. These treatments make me look and feel as if I’ve spent the whole day being pampered. Little does everyone else know, I just drooled on my pillowcase for hours and woke up looking amazing. Hi Boys!
You may be saying to yourself “Wait a second, hold up! You mean I can get beautiful all while I sleep?” And I’m here to tell you, yes, you can! I mean, c’mon, if that’s not proof enough of God’s existence, I don’t know what is.
Some of the products I’ve picked up over the last few months have become staples in my boudoir (hey, what can I say, I’m pretty fancy) and should definitely become a part of yours too.
With these “overnight magicians” as I like to call them, I can soften my hair, hydrate my lips and look like I just got back from a week in Hawaii all while I’m in a REM state. And I’m not mad at any of it. Bring it on 9-hour sleep, bring it on!
As the colder months approach the first thing I notice is how dry, brittle and frizzy my hair has become. Pretty sexy, right? Well, It’s definitely not, but after finding this product at Sephora even Rapunzel would be jealous of these silky tresses and it’s only 5 bucks! My favorite is the Coconut but it also comes in Acai, Shea and Rose.
What I like the most is the simple convenience of this hair mask. You apply it to dry hair and it comes with a really comfortable, cloth like cap to wear overnight. Now, I’m not going to say you look hot when you wear it but this mask will hydrate, combats fizz and repairs damage. Making your hair soft, shiny and easy to style the next day. And all this happens while dreaming about Bradley Cooper. I don’t even like blondes but god damn that dude is hot. And my hair ends up looking amazing! I win.
Another luxurious treatment you can do is a sleeping facial tanning mask. Yep, you read that right. You can get a sun-kissed glow while you catch your Zzzzzzzzzz’s! This product by Vita Liberata is a real easy way to look as if you own vacation homes in every tropical location despite the fact that you actually live in Antarctica or Minnesota. Sorry, boo. But I’m here to help.
What’s so great about this product is that you can do your usual skin care routine at night and then follow with this mask applying it to your face, neck and chest. Once you do that, you can lay your “sweet little pale as snow” face on the pillow and by the time you wake up you’ll be wondering why you hadn’t picked this up sooner. Not only do you get a gorgeous bronze glow, there are vitamins and anti-aging ingredients that deeply hydrate the skin and it also helps diminish fine lines and wrinkles. Skin appears more plump and youthful and glow-y!
Now that we have your hair tamed and your golden-to-be face taken care of. What about your lips? Do you wear long-lasting lipsticks? Do you drink out of straws? Do you actually have to talk sometimes? One of the most neglected and overused parts of our face really could use some TLC. I mean, you want to be able to take those duck face Selfies with pride don’t you? Actually, please don’t. You look ridiculous. But if you absolutely have to at least use this product by Laneige on your kisser. It has hyaluronic acid and moisture wrap technologies that helps soften, smooth, hydrate and diminish fine lines around the lips. It also smells delicious because of the berry mix complex and will help to reduce any flakiness. It feels so decadent and rich and you wouldn’t believe this thing is only costs $20 clams. After using this, you wake up, your lips will be plump, soft and ready for anything. And I mean anything! Boomshakalaka
Now, nothing really compares to a full day at the spa but hopefully, in between the holiday craziness you can take a little “you” time even if you have to do it while you sleep. So, you may go to bed looking horrid but then you get to wake up looking gorgeous. It’s our little secret. Sweet Dreams.
