A good night's sleep alone could give your skin a healthy glow in the morning, but it never hurts to have a bit of help from the most potent step in your regimen—a serum. Below, you'll find our picks for a quick overnight pick-me-up, from boosters to blue-tinted oil serums:
1. Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Intense Reset Concentrate
Estée Lauder's best-selling Advanced Night Repair serum now has a new hardworking buddy that's basically a figurative reset button for your skin. It rescues from visible signs of irritation and redness with a stabilized blend of salicylic acid and resveratrol that works to soothe the skin, plus fermented yeast that helps encourage the skin's natural healing process. To fight dehydration, this concentrate has a variety of hyaluronic acids that can penetrate different levels of the skin's surface for effective plumping.

2. Pixi Overnight Glow Serum
This serum has 10% glycolic acid, which will gently exfoliate your skin to make it feel smoother and appear more luminous. Don't worry about redness either, because it has cucumber and aloe vera extracts that'll calm down irritation while you sleep.

3. La Mer Genaissance de la Mer The Serum Essence
If the skin-renewing benefits of an essence and the repairing prowess of a serum had a baby, it would be this product. It plumps the skin with seaweed extract (the main ingredient of La Mer's miracle broth) and boosts the skin's collagen production with fermented ingredients derived from red algae and 24-karat gold.

4. Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil
This night oil smoothes and soothes while you catch up on your beauty sleep. It's formulated with retinol, which is the magic ingredient for dealing with everything—from fine lines, to textured skin, to enlarged pores. The blue tint is no random feature either—that's actually the blue tansy that whisks away signs of irritation for more even-toned complexion.

Wrap up your night time skincare routine with this potent face oil that deeply nourishes dry and dull skin overnight. Its star ingredient, organic immortelle essential oil, has antioxidant and anti-aging properties that are said to improve skin elasticity and firmness.
