It’s common knowledge that sufficient sleep is essential to keeping skin healthy and supple. On average, we need about seven to nine hours of sleep a day because as we snooze, our body is actually in repair mode and our skin is working to restore hydration, repair damaged cells, regenerate skin cells and strengthen the immune system. Also, research has shown that our skin is better able to absorb active ingredients at night, making it the best time to treat skin.
The problem is, with our busy lifestyles it’s almost impossible to get enough sleep. To help with this, Korean beauty brand Laneige is expanding its Sleeping Care range to include an Eye Sleeping Mask, Limited Edition Water Sleeping Mask Lavender, and three new flavoured Lip Sleeping Masks. The line will keep your complexion looking and feeling great the morning after.
The range contains a cocktail of active ingredients that work overnight to boost skin’s radiance and hydration levels as you snooze. Sleeptox is an antioxidant-rich purification technology made with Hunza apricot and evening primrose root extract to repair damage caused by various external aggressors during the day and restore skin to its optimal condition overnight by preventing the degeneration of skin cells.
The line also uses a moisture-rich beta-glucan mineral network that forms a film over skin to lock in moisture and stabilise the active ingredients in Sleeptox so they can be continuously delivered into the skin over eight hours.
Another plus: the range has a scent made with natural fragrances from orange flower, rose, ylang ylang and sandalwood oil to help your body and mind relax and improve your quality of sleep to strengthen skin’s regenerative ability. Learn more about the range here.
