Although sleep is making headlines for its impact on health and wellness, most people are getting less of it than in recent generations. It’s well established that sleep is vital to good health. However, it’s also important to healthy skin. According to a study from the University of Cleveland, people who get more than seven hours of sleep a night appear to be four to five years younger than those sleeping only five hours. Sleep is when the skin repairs damage caused by pollution and UV rays. An increase in melatonin and human growth hormone helps accelerate skin renewal and cell regeneration. Taking advantage of this discovery, Sothys introduced the NO2ctuelle Collection, which features the Detox Resurfacing Overnight Cream, the Chrono-Destressing Sleeping Mask, and the Relaxing Pillow Mist. Formulated to breathe renewed vitality into the cells for a real cellular boost, the products revive and resurface the skin, leaving it looking radiant.
Working to combat daytime aggressors, Detox Resurfacing Overnight Cream is a creamy balm with a signature scent made up of relaxing top notes of orange, mandarin, and lemon and a base of cedar wood and musk. This high-tech formula features a stabilized vitamin C that is easily absorbed by the skin and transported down deep where it’s needed to stimulate cellular activity and erase the visible signs of environmental damage. It not only stimulates the synthesis of collagen and keratinocyte differentiation but also reduces melanin synthesis. The cream also contains nasturtium extract, which helps strengthen the cells’ ability to adapt to a lack of oxygen. A detoxifying complex made up of shea polyphenols and yeast extract boosts the body’s detoxification systems, protecting the skin from the harmful effects of urban pollutants and stimulating cellular detoxification and the skin’s waste recycling system. A Hydra-Smoothing Complex of marine collagen, avocado, and macadamia oils moisturizes the skin, leaving it visibly smoother.
Benefiting from many of the same ingredients as the overnight cream, the Chrono-Destressing Sleeping Mask is a concentrated formula with oxygen-like actives and potent additional ingredients, such as chaste tree and lindera extracts, to revive the skin. When applied using the exclusive relaxing application technique, it serves as the first step toward winding down and preparing for sleep. The Relaxing Pillow Mist, featuring the signature scent, provides another soothing step in preparation for a regenerative and reparative sleep.
