These spa-inspired treatments work to turn back the clock while you sleep
A simple massage at bedtime is study-proven to increase levels of the “relaxation” hormone serotonin, which is key for the body’s production of sleep-regu- lating melatonin. The result? You drift off more easily and wake up looking and feeling refreshed! To do: As you lie in bed, rub your fingertips all over your scalp in slow circular motions for one minute, then move your hands down your neck, repeating the same motion behind your ears for 30 seconds. Return to your scalp and repeat the cycle three to five times.
Packed with anti-inflammatory prop- erties that reduce redness and soothe irritation, cucumbers are the perfect fix for ruddy skin, says dermatologist Debra Jaliman, M.D. And to prevent the dryness that can lead to redness,
combine cucumber with humectant aloe—the duo works its magic as skin is in reparative mode as you sleep. n TRY IT! Purée 1⁄4 of a cucumber in a blender, then mix with 1⁄4 cup of aloe vera gel; pour into a lidded jar. Store in the fridge as the coolness will ease puffiness. Apply a quarter-sized amount to skin before bed; rinse off in the morning. Repeat twice a week.
Coconut oil delivers fatty acids that hydrate and heal dam- aged strands, and adding argan oil nourishes locks with polyphenols that improve elasticity. Leaving the mix on hair overnight allows it to deeply penetrate for silky-soft strands come morning. n TRY IT! Mix 1 Tbs. of coconut oil and 2 tsp. of argan oil. Apply to hair (dry or damp) from roots to ends, then place an old towel on top of your pillow to prevent stains. Shampoo hair in the morning. Repeat once a week.
Derived from the fruit of the rose plant, the seed oil’s vitamin A encourages skin-firming collagen production to smooth fine lines. For best results, mix it with hydrating almond oil and let it absorb into skin overnight. Your complexion will appear plump and glowing by sunrise. n TRY IT! Mix together 3 drops of rosehip seed oil and 3 drops of almond oil. Apply to clean, dry skin before bed, then rinse off in the morning. Use three times a week.

“Jojoba oil seals in moisture and forms a barrier over the cuticle, protecting nails so they don’t become weak and brittle,” says Dr. Jaliman. “Applying at night allows skin to really soak up its emollient properties.” n TRY IT! Mix 1 Tbs. of jojoba oil and 3 drops of lavender essential oil (its antibacterial properties ward off infection around hang- nails). Saturate a cotton swab in the mix and dab onto cuticles. Cover hands with cotton gloves; rinse hands in the morning. Store leftovers in a lidded container for nightly use.

Slip on a pair of socks and rinse off any residue in the morning. Repeat twice a week as needed.
