Whether you’re a nighttime book reader, an early-bird journaler or all of the above, you know that your nightstand is somewhat of a shrine when it comes to your bedroom decor. Usually home to anything from books to medications to lip balms and glasses, your nightstand plays a key role in your bedtime and morning routines. When it comes to your beauty routine, though, have you been using your nightstand to its full potential?

After a long day, sometimes the last thing we want to do post-shower is a 10 step skin-care and beauty routine in front of the mirror. But, with influencers maximizing their pre-bed beauty routine to minimize their morning getting ready needs with things like heatless curlers, mouth tape and self tanner, it’s more popular than ever to use your nighttime routine to your advantage. So, what better way to streamline and supercharge your nighttime beauty circuit than by putting some extra thought into your nightstand product lineup? Ahead, NewBeauty senior editor-at-large Sarah Eggenberger walks us through her list of nightstand beauty essentials that you’ll want to keep at an arm’s length, as seen on Good Morning America.

Nightstand Beauty: The Best Beauty Products to Keep On Your Nightstand

1 / 7

SkinGym Cryo Chill Face Mask ($20)

Whether you’re trying to unwind before bed or wake up your skin first thing in the morning, SkinGym’s Cryo Chill Face Mask is a must-have for your nightstand beauty routine. Not only does the cooling sensation help soothe breakouts and inflammation, if you apply a serum to the skin and chill afterwards, the capillaries restrict, creating a pulling effect that helps ingredients penetrate deeper. To use, simply op it in the freezer and use it fabric side down or pop in the fridge and use it bead-side down!

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask ($24)

A long-time favorite amongst celebrities like Sydney Sweeney, Laneige’s Lip Sleeping Mask is one product your nightstand should never be without. The skin of the lips is among the thinnest on our body, yet it is the first to endure a multitude of environmental assaults from temperature fluctuations to makeup, sun exposure, wind and more. Moreover, the skin on the lips lacks sebaceous and sweat glands, and therefore cannot produce sebum or sweat for protection. The perfect cross between a jelly and a cream, Laneige’s Lip Sleeping Mask doesn’t just hydrate, it packs the lips with antioxidants and soothing ingredients for juicier, softer lips when you rise.

Quick and easy to use, Living Proof’s Healthy Hair Perfector is an ideal addition to your nightstand beauty routine.

Slip Pure Silk Turban ($85)

Silk hair wraps have been an integral part of different cultures’ beauty regimens for years, coveted for the way they protect the hair and keep your style intact through the night. A turban that helps protect your hair from the effects of friction throughout the night, the surface of Slip’s Pure Silk Turban is completely smooth, ensuring your delicate hair cuticles glide safely under its protection, and is also far less absorbent than other materials, meaning it won’t strip away the naturally nourishing oils from your hair, like cotton or synthetic satin will.

Nécessaire’s The Hand Cream ($25) or The Hand Retinol ($35)

We lose moisture through our hands constantly, and if you don’t take preventive action, you could end up with dry, older-looking hands quicker than you may think. This product duo is the gold standard for hand hydration, with one part traditional cream used during the day and one part retinol used at night, making it a must-have for your nightstand product lineup.

With .25 percent pure retinol paired with AHA, peptides, vitamins and glycerin, The Hand Retinol helps treat and prevent crepiness, lines, wrinkles, spots and marks for younger-looking hands while the five ceramides, five peptides, niacinamide and marula butter in The Hand Cream help reverse dryness, treat loss of volume and recover brittle cuticles for younger-looking hands.

Therabody Smart Goggles ($199)

Therabody has a wide range of products to help relax your body, and the SmartGoggles are a new edition to the lineup, differentiating themselves as the only eye mask powered by SmartSense Technology. A smart wearable for sleep, focus, and stress, the goggles help reduce headaches and anxiety, relieve eye strain and lull you fast asleep. SmartGoggles can be used via the app or by toggling through the modes with the physical buttons on the goggles. Plus, it’s compact enough to pack away for a better nights sleep away from home, too.
