Ever since the days of Sleeping Beauty and Snow White, it’s been no secret that really long, really restful nights of sleep might be the key to looking more youthful (or at least, not aging.) But fairytales aside, there’s actually quite a bit of science to back up that concept: Studies show that quality of sleep and appearance of skin are directly correlated—not only does a night of tossing and turning result in dark circles and dull skin, but chronic poor sleepers have also been shown to display more visible signs of aging and slower recovery from environmental aggressors on skin.
While you sleep, your skin goes into repair mode, cleaning up environmental damage, turning over, regenerating cells and producing collagen. That’s why applying the right evening products is crucial to helping skin work at its best overnight, and it can mean waking up more beautiful.
For an all-in-one repair cream, reach for RéVive Moisturizing Renewal Cream Supreme, which is powered by the brand’s signature RES Technology and features glycol acid to gently exfoliate, retexture for visibly renewed and hydrated skin. For an even more intense treatment, or if your skin is on the drier side, start with RéVive Rescue Elixir, a nightly restorative oil packed with active ingredients that help your skin self-moisturize while you sleep and encourage new skin cells to come to the surface. As a result, skin looks like it’s gotten an extra hour of sleep.
While the right evening routine is a crucial step to any effective anti-aging regimen, an equally robust daytime routine is just as important, especially as we’re moving into the long days of summer. A great daily SPF is a nonnegotiable—try Soleil Superieur SPF 50 for an easy-to use option that gives you broad-spectrum SPF 50 in-sun protection. We recommend pairing it with a daytime moisturizer like Perfectif Cream SPF 30 to help minimize the appearance of past sun damage while keeping your skin hydrated throughout the day.
