Catching some Zzzs… Celebrate #WorldSleepDay with Estee Lauder

I didn’t know until this week that there was a World Sleep Day.

Although there is a holiday for *literally* everything and this doesn’t surprise me, but the notion of having a day fully dedicated to sleep makes me very excited.

Since the beginning of the year I have been waking up at 6:20 a.m. to get in a workout for 6:30 a.m., which means that going to bed early and getting a full nights’ sleep is very important for not only my body, but my mind.

I typically go to bed at 10 p.m. and like to be in bed by 9:30 p.m. at least (I prefer 9 but sometimes life just gets in the way). To calm my mind, I like to read a little before bed and then when 10 p.m. hits I like to listen to the Wave Sleep app to fall asleep (if you haven’t downloaded Wave Sleep yet, I highly recommend you do so; it’s a free app!).

Estee Lauder World Sleep Day 2021 products

Anyways, in celebration of World Sleep Day, which is today, Estee Lauder sent me some nighttime goodies to prep my mind, skin, and body for a good night’s sleep. You guys know I already adore their Advanced Night Repair serum, which is a product I use very often as part of my night time routine (I’ve gone through like four bottles of it already and always have a backup handy).  My skincare routine at night is more intensive in general since the products tend to repair skin as you sleep.

So my first must-have to apply before you go to bed?  An eye cream! The Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex (C$85) helps to nourish the eye area while you sleep.

Suitable for both day and night use, this treatment repairs the visible impact of a lack of sleep, as well as UV, pollution, blue light, wrinkles, and dark circles.  Apply a thin layer to the eye area to reduce the look of puffiness, lines, and dryness.  The brand says that it also helps to brighten dark circles in just three weeks and will hydrate for 24 hours thanks to a potent hydration booster, including hyaluronic acid. This eye cream also includes their exclusive ChronoluxCB, which promotes skin’s natural repair process to help eyes look younger, more renewed and recharged.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum and eye cream  After you apply your eye cream, pair it with their iconic Advanced Night Repair serum (C$95/30 ml), which helps to reduce multiple signs of aging in your skin.

This serum, which is suitable for all skin types, will help to diminish signs of aging thanks to its Chronolux Power Signal Technology.  Apply it at night (or morning!) to protect and reduce signs of aging caused by environmental aggressors, pollution, UV damage, etc.  With regular use, skin will look smoother and radiant, as well as more toned.  It also helps to reduce the look of large pores and give you bouncier and healthier-looking skin.

Apply this serum every night for more hydration in your skin and wake up to a radiant complexion.

Finally, if you want to give your skin an extra treat before bed, apply the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery Powerfoil Mask (C$106/4 masks).

Apply this mask to cleansed skin to add some extra moisture and radiance.  This mask is a foil-backed sheet mask which allows the product to penetrate fast and deep in the skin’s surface and helps to lock in moisture.

The thing that makes this mask stand out is that it delivers a double dose of Advanced Night Repair, delivering two-times the amount of hyaluronic acid.  This mask features a separate top and bottom, which means you can either apply both or just use one to target one part of your face.  I will say that this mask is incredibly luxe and although it is very pricey for a sheet mask, you definitely can tell the difference when you apply it and is a nice treat to put on every once in a while.

There are many amazing nighttime products to treat your skin to at night and these are some of my favourites to apply before hitting the sheets. Estee Lauder also sent along the book by Leonard Lauder, Estee Lauder’s son, which will be the perfect novel to read before getting some shut eye.

Sweet dreams!
