Daylight saving time is just around the corner, meaning we’re losing an hour of sleep.
And no—we are not looking forward to it. So, in order to prepare for the drowsy week ahead, we figured we need all the help we can get. First things first? Skincare—duh! Keep reading to see the morning and nighttime sleep essentials we’re trying this week.
Serumkind Chaga Charging Drop: $55
We recently tried out the Serumkind Chaga Charging Drop, and wow, how did we ever live without it? Both supercharging and ultra-nourishing, this serum is jam-packed with Chaga Mushroom Extract, an ingredient known for its hydrating capabilities. This baby is good for both day and night usage.
Gelid Beauty Clear Glitter Ice Globes: $70
When we want our skin to really absorb a product (like the Serumkind Chaga Charging Drop,) we turn to our favorite facial devices, like these ice globes from Gelid Beauty! Coming in an aesthetically-pleasing clear glitter color, these globes will reduce puffiness and brighten the skin. Plus, it aids with lymphatic drainage, which is an absolute must for maintaining clear skin. Pop these in the fridge for 30 minutes to get the best results.

Codex Beauty Labs Antu Brightening Night Cream: $90
If you know you’re going to have to wake up early (like with daylight saving time), a thick night cream is a must. We’re currently loving Codex Beauty’s brightening cream, which will leave your skin looking and feeling radiant. Over night, the formula will work on nourishing and hydrating your skin, improving its tone and texture. Trust us, the last thing you want to deal with in the morning is tired-looking skin.

Wondergloss This Is Everything Best Facial Oil: $65
If you’re in the market for a new facial oil, Wondergloss has the best one. Their This Is Everything Best Facial Oil glides on like velvet and will make your skin feel as soft as a baby’s bottom. Super nourishing and made with powerhouse ingredients like pomegranate and avocado, it’ll leave you with soft and glowing skin (great for both morning and night!).
LATHER Quiet Night Pillow Mist: $18
If you have trouble falling asleep when your head hits the pillow, we suggest using a pillow mist. With daylight saving time, it’s even more important to get a good night’s rest, which is why we love using LATHER’s pillow mist. Formulated with fresh scents like lavender, ylang ylang and cedarwood, your senses will immediately be soothed.
Elemis Pro-Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm: $38
Instead of just using a cleanser at night, also using one in the morning will get your day off on the right foot. The Elemis cleansing balm is one of their most popular products, and for good reason. It feels like literal butter is being spread on your face, when in reality, it’s just a rose extract blend. This will prep and prime your face, leaving it looking smooth and radiant.
Pixi Beauty Glow Tonic: $29
Since you’ll be feeling extra tired when daylight saving time starts, we’re willing to bet your skin will need a pick-me-up. Pixi Beauty’s Glow Tonic will even up your skin tone while also hydrating and protecting your skin. Key ingredients include glycolic acid, aloe vera and ginseng—and we’re willing to bet this product will become your new fave in no time.

Glossier Priming Moisturizer Rich: $35
If we could only use one skincare product in the morning, it would be Glossier’s Priming Moisturizer. This rich formula is made with a blend of shea and murumuru butters, leaving you with supple and luxe skin. Once your skin feels hydrated in the morning, we swear you’ll feel better equipped to take on the rest of the day.
Lux Unfiltered Nº12 Bronzing Face Drops: $42
With daylight saving time, we’re officially transitioning from winter to spring, which, for some of us, means we’re lacking vitamin D. If you’re pale or need a bit of a tanning boost, Lux Unfiltered’s Nº12 Bronzing Face Drops will make you feel like an actual goddess. Simply add a few drops to a moisturizer (like Glossier’s) and bam, you’ll have that perfectly sunkissed glow.

QUR Clip Balm 2-Pack in Uplift and Rise + Grind: $15
One thing you won’t ever catch us without is a killer lip balm. We were recently introduced to QUR’s clip balm, and it’s seriously life-changing. The unique design allows you to clip it onto your pants, bag or anywhere else for easy access. The formula itself is full of shea butter, jojoba oil, almond oil and coconut oil—everything your lips crave.
