A nighttime skin and hair routine is easy to bypass after a long day – especially when it’s the only thing standing between you, your luxurious linens and a rejuvenating night’s sleep. Sure, beauty sleep is important. However, taking the time for both before bed is vital. After all, who wouldn’t want to wake with luminous, glowing skin and hair?

Start your evening routine by washing away dirt, oil and makeup. Apply a generous amount of OLEHENRIKEN’s Wonderfeel Double Cleanser to both a damp face and neck. With dampened fingertips, gently massage in the product for one to two minutes, removing with a warm, wet cloth. This one-step cold cream effortlessly dissolves long-wear and waterproof makeup, while elevating the ultimate spa indulgence for even dry and sensitive skin. Available for $32. (

Nourish and smooth your skin with ELEMIS’ Superfood Facial Oil. Massage three to four drops over the face and neck, avoiding contact with the eyes. This highly concentrated blend of plant-based superfoods will feed the skin with antioxidants and omegas for a lightweight radiance. Available for $55. (

Hydrate while you sleep for a beautiful morning glow with ELEMIS’ Superfood Night Cream. Simply apply a thin layer to dry skin as the final step to your nighttime skin care regimen. Made with super grains and almond milk, this cream will not only balance the skin’s microflora and replenish lipids, but also leave skin feeling smoother and revitalized. Superfood Night Cream available for $55.

Tame the mane overnight with Shu Uemura Art of Hair’s Essence Absolue Overnight Serum. Infused with Japanese red camellia oil, this serum will not only provide softness and glow to your tresses, but also will protect from frizz and tangle. Simply spread a pump of serum onto your hands, and apply evenly to dry or damp hair before bed. Available for $69. (

If you are looking for a little relaxation rather than a quick routine, though, opt for OLEHENRIKSEN’s Hygge Hydraclay Detox Mask. Light a candle, turn on some soothing tunes and purify your face. Simply apply a thick layer to a clean, dry face, and leave on for 10 minutes. Then either rinse with water or apply a damp washcloth. Available for $32.
