1. Kiehl’s Super Multi-Corrective cream ($62, Kiehls.com or in-store), which is clinically demonstrated to correct all key signs of aging in just 2 weeks, lifts, firms, sculpts and smooths skin. Your skin repairs itself overnight, so pm application is key.

2. Wakaya Perfection Ginger ($24, Wakayaperfection.com or Bloomingdales), which is an organic ginger from the Fijian island Wakaya, can be used as a body scrub and is the perfect skin prep before applying self tanner. The ginger is used in the categories of eat, drink and thrive, so you can literally sip your pre-bedtime ginger tea to cleanse your system and correct stomach woes, while enjoying a ginger foot soak and mixing up a ginger body scrub.

5. Treating Your Undereyes Overnight: With your eyes being the window to not only your soul, but last night’s sleep, the right undereye care before bed will have you looking refreshed, depuffed and bright-eyed. A favorite is La Prairie’s Advanced Marine Biology Eye Gel. ($105, www.shoplaprairie.com) The ultimate indulgence, this luxe anti-aging eye treatment reduces puffiness and dark circles around the eye area. Apply under the eyes and on the eyelids and wake up with firmer, smoother looking skin. For double the oomph, apply in the morning as well. Another favorite is the more budget-friendly Mario Badescu’s ultra-hydrating Olive Eye Cream. ($18, www.MarioBadescu.com). This is their most intense and rich eye cream. Formulated with Olive Oil and Cocoa Butter to provide extreme levels of moisture to the delicate eye area, this overnight product is perfect for transitioning skin into fall/winter weather when hydration becomes extra important.
