Wake up Feeling Refreshed from these Rejuvenating Products
Despite the endless array of round-the-clock activities Bangkok has to offer, sometimes sleeping trumps all. While a little shut-eye is itself key to maintaining healthy skin (and minds), some of these top overnight products will help you wake up with an extra bit of glow.
This overnight serum claims to help skin regain its natural balance and elasticity, featuring a blend of cold-pressed raw oils containing Moringa oil, which is four times as rich in collagen as carrot oil, and jojoba. Thai lemongrass, clove, and peppermint lend it cooling, antibacterial, and antiseptic properties, as well, making it an ideal rejuvenating treatment for maturing skin. The flagship store of Siam Botanicals is located in Serindia Gallery at OP Garden on Charoen Krung Road. Visit siambotanicals.com for more information.
Spending too much time out in the sun or inside with the air-con on can leave your skin dry and dehydrated. This rich and restorative cream by Pañpuri encourages skin renewal while deeply hydrating it during the night. The cream is made of 100 per cent plant actives and essential oils and contains Pañpuri’s special jasmine free-radical defence complex to fend off signs of aging and preserve moisture balance. Alfalfa extract, another key ingredient, boosts natural collagen production, helping to reduce fine lines. Crucially, it smells great, too.

Bangkok’s air is not particularly clean (surprise). All those air-born particles can leave skin looking dull and unhealthy. Fortunately, Kiehl’s protective night masque reduces visible effects of pollution. Formulated with cilantro and orange extract, this masque steels skin against environmental aggressors while cleansing it of the grit and grime that get picked up from daily life in the city. Kiehl’s is available around in Central Chidlom, Siam Center, or The EMQuartier. To read more about the products, check out kiehls.co.th.
The so-called Dreamy Pillow & Body Mist was designed to improve sleep. Spray some of the quick-drying mist onto your pillow or sheets before bedtime; a special encapsulation technology ensures that bursts of fragrance are released throughout the night as your body shifts positions. Meanwhile, jujube and fair-trade chamomile combine promote restful sleep. Body Shop can be found in almost every shopping mall in Bangkok, or log on to thebodyshop.co.th to peruse the shop’s many items.
