Amidst all the holiday cheer of this special season, there are also a lot of factors that can take a serious toll on your skin — cold weather, long nights, and one too many Champagne toasts, to name a few. With those less-than-kind elements in mind, it's more important than ever to hone in on products that'll keep your skin healthy and happy so you can enjoy the season to the fullest. And if you're at a loss for which skin savior is best to add to your beauty arsenal, consider the just-dropped GLAMGLOW Good In Bed cream a viable answer to your problems.
The cheekily-named face cream, which officially became available on Sephora's site in early December, came at just the right time. With temperatures plummeting, heaters blasting, and increased potential for high-stress situations (like forgetting someone on your gifting list), your complexion is bound to be in need of a little extra TLC. And luckily, GLAMGLOW's latest launch is chock-full of skin-loving ingredients ready to save the day.
Per the $54 product's full name, the star ingredient of the Good in Bed Passionfruit Softening Night Cream is, as you may have guessed, passionfruit. The bright yellow fruit is known to be super-nourishing to skin, which helps this new cream to soften and condition your complexion overnight. Combine that with the addition of gentle exfoliants alphahydroxy, betahydroxy, and polyhydroxy acids (better known as AHAs, BHAs, and PHAs), and you can expect to wake up with a healthy glow.
The unsung hero of the product, however, is hyaluronic acid. The incredibly hydrating molecule, according to Allure's ever-helpful skincare glossary, is found naturally in your skin and helps to prevent water loss — amazingly enough, a single molecule can hold 1,000 times its weight in water. You'll note it on the Good In Bed cream's ingredient label as sodium hyaluronate, which Allure's executive beauty editor explains is the form hyaluronic acid naturally takes in skin.
When conditions are particularly dry, you'll want to be sure to replenish your complexion's natural supply of hyaluronic acid so your skin stays looking plump, dewy, and fresh. And because the ingredient works to refresh cells and retain moisture, you'll not only feel more hydrated, but you'll likely also see a decrease in fine lines on your face — so it makes sense that it's a prime ingredient in a ton of expensive serums and anti-aging products.
How can you be sure you get all the benefits that this goodness-packed GLAMGLOW product has to offer? It actually couldn't be easier to integrate into your routine. The resurfacing acids are gentle enough for nightly use, especially when paired with the nourishing and hydrating powers of the aforementioned passionfruit and hyaluronic acid. Simply slather on a generous layer of the rich cream each night before bed, so the moisture-laden goodness can soak deeply into your skin while you snooze. They don't call it beauty sleep for nothing, right?
If you really want to be sure you're getting bang for your buck, try massaging the cream in with the sleekest new beauty tool that'll help the product penetrate deeper layers of your skin — it'll feel like you're getting a spa treatment every evening before bed.
