Did you know that your body repairs itself while you sleep at night? The same goes for your skin. You may have heard this before, but sleeping between seven to nine hours each night comes with a wealth of health benefits, especially for your skin. “If you’re getting fewer than 6 hours, it’s likely affecting your appearance,” says Michael Breus, a clinical psychologist and both a diplomate of the American Board of Sleep Medicine and a fellow of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. This is also why a good night skincare routine can be really beneficial.
YSL Beauty has just released its latest night skincare product called YSL Pure Shots Night Reboot Serum. It’s a resurfacing bi-phase serum that gently exfoliates, refines, and moisturizes your skin. Using Night Reboot technology, the serum smooths the skin’s surface and reactivates the skin’s ability to regenerate. When you apply the Night Reboot Serum to your skin before you go to bed, it will help remove dead skin cells that have piled up along with the effects of pollution – all while ensuring super-fast yet gentle skin-renewing efficacy.
Among the YSL Pure Shots Night Reboot Serum’s highlighted ingredients are glycolic acid and Moonlight Cactus oil (sourced from YSL Beauty’s Ourika Gardens in Morocco). The glycolic acid helps exfoliate your skin, while the repairing power of Moonlight Cactus protects new skin cells from oxidative stress affecting the surface of the skin.
NOTES ON APPLYING THE YSL BEAUTY PURE SHOTS NIGHT SERUM
1. Because it’s a bi-phase serum, don’t forget to shake well before using.
2. YSL Beauty recommends using only two pumps, but using three might not be such a bad idea.
3. The serum is very light and easily absorbed; so after you pump the serum onto your hands, gently rub it between your hands a bit and press it onto your forehead, cheek, and neck. Use circular motions on areas of skin with dark spots and uneven colour.
4. The serum not only exfoliates, but also moisturizes your skin.
5. According to YSL Beauty, all signs of fatigue will be significantly reduced on the first morning after application.

OURIKA GARDENS, YSL BEAUTY’S BOTANICAL GARDEN
In 2019, YSL Beauty inaugurated the Ourika Gardens in Morocco. These gardens were designed by Ossart and Arnaud Maurières – talented landscape designers and botanists, and also experts in creating gardens in arid regions – to transform fallow plots into a flourishing botanical garden producing plants used in YSL Beauty make-up, fragrance, and skincare products. There are over 40 botanicals species, from marigold and saffron to lemon, verbena, geranium pomegranate and jasmine growing in the gardens.
Today, over ten species are sold to YSL through the Aboghlo cooperative, which provides women workers with a significant income and regular training useful for their professional and personal life, according to PUR Projet. “Yves Saint Laurent has always been about women autonomy. Through these gardens, and the revenue the cooperative generates, the 32 women have been able to significantly improve their standard of living,” says Caroline Nègre, Scientific Director YSL Beauty.
