Editor’s Pick: Aindrila’s Oils of Life Sleeping Cream
I’m a beauty junkie. Simply put, I’m a hoarder when it comes to the latest in cosmetics and skincare products. I religiously follow the cleanse-tone-moisturise routine (even when I’m hitting the sack at the wee hours of the morning!). It’s a regime my mother very judiciously inculcated in me and something I’ve been following for well over two decades. I’m in my 30s and trust me when I say this, a good skincare drill goes a long way in shielding some irreversible damages to your skin. Those heady cocktails, city pollution and the scorching sun do little to safeguard the one thing you need to look after: your beauty (outer first. sic*). So skincare is must!
After much scouting, I finally stumbled across a night cream that I now swear by. Well, yes, sleep goes a long way to perk up tired skin, but a little dose of pampering does help in more ways than one for healthier, glowing skin. These words of wisdom come from years of experience (winks*)! The Body Shop’s Oils of Life Revitalising Sleeping Cream is lightly textured (great for our humid weather) and revitalises and repairs your skin as you sleep. Or so it promises. And honestly, the skin does feel hydrated when you wake up. All you need to do is massage it gently on your face, neck and decollete in an upward motion before you crash.
The Body Shop’s Oils of Life™ Revitalising Sleeping Cream is infused with a powerful blend of three precious seed oils (black cumin, rosehip and camellia) — all known to be great anti-oxidants, rich in Omega 3 and 6, and nutritive oleic acid — along with seven essential oils. The essential oils are traditionally used for medicinal purposes and aromatherapy. Also, the lightweight cream is great, especially for the summer months. Other than yoga (a great stress-buster!) and your unmissable beauty sleep, this product is surely one to try to get that suppleness in your morning skin.
