Products that Work While You Sleep

Daylight savings be damned—there are never enough hours in the day! With two jobs, a blog and a host of other commitments, I’ve often wished that it were possible to scratch items off my to-do list while I sleep. Fortunately, there are a few products and treatments that give new meaning to the phrase “sleeping beauty.” –Meghan

1. As someone who considers themselves a tad too young for heavy (read: greasy) night creams, Nip + Fab Night Fix Intensive Anti-Ageing Gel ($17.95) is a revelation. I apply the light creamy gel at night and wake up with softer, smoother and plumped up skin. A favorite of celebrities, including Jennifer Aniston and Olivia Palermo, this UK-based beauty brand from the makers of luxury line Rodial debuted this fall at Target stores..

2. I treat my locks once weekly with L’Oreal EverStrong Overnight Hair Repair Treatment ($7), especially if I’ve been rocking teased ‘dos or hitting my heat stylers a little too hard. Unlike other oily overnight treatments I’ve tried, this sulfate-free gel absorbs into hair quickly and completely, leaving my vintage pillow cases pristine. Wash it out in the morning and enjoy softer, smoother and stronger locks for days. And the smell? Divine..

3. Last but not least, a little tip I learned from Grandma: Slather up your hands and feet with rich lotion (simple Nivea Creme is my favorite), slip on some 100-percent cotton gloves and socks and snooze your way to soft skin. These gloves from Sally Beauty Supply ($2.79) are a steal.
