Busy supermodel – and supermom – Heidi Klum may have the advantage of her exclusive hairstylist Helena Faccenda to get her red-carpet ready, but Faccenda reveals that getting Heidi’s look is just as easy on your own.

RESET YOUR SKINCARE CLOCK
Find yourself committing skincare’s biggest bedtime sin and heading to bed without cleansing your face? The solution’s simple when you reset your skincare clock, reveals Renee Rouleau, whose signature skincare collection is a star-favorite. “Your nighttime routine doesn’t have to be done minutes before you hit the bed,” she points out. “Wash your face when you get home from work, or even after dinner.

THE HEAT IS ON
For star hairstylist David Babaii, deep-conditioning locks is all about heating things up – naturally. He recommends combing through his signature WildAid Hydrating Conditioner ($15) – his all-natural line with Kate Hudson – to dry hair before topping with a shower cap for maximum overnight effects. “The cap creates a sauna-like effect that helps the conditioner warm,” he says, “which in turn results in a deeper penetration of moisture.”

Dreaming of a perfect smile? Crest’s revolutionary new line, Pro-Health Night toothpaste ($4) and Oral Rinse ($7), makes it a reality.

Combine paste and wash with an oscillating toothbrush like Oral B Triumph, and “you can wake up with up to 69 percent less plaque,” as well as a brighter, better smile.

LIGHTER WORKS BETTER
Think you need to slather on the thickest cream you can find to fight parched skin? Not according to Annet King, director of training and development at Dermalogica and the International Dermal Institute. “Traditionally people swap out to a heavy cream for night, and this isn t necessary today,” says King. “The main difference between night and day products is SPF is found in day moisturizers. Products do not have to be thick to be effective. Quite the opposite: serums, fluids and liquid boosters under a lighter cream are more easily absorbed.” Try Dermalogica’s Intensive Moisture Balance ($38) – then amp up the effects with Skin Hydrating Booster ($53).

Nighttime is the right time to apply your favorite serums, according to Dr. Fredric Brandt, whose celeb fans include Kelly Ripa and Stephanie Seymour. “While sleeping, the body repairs itself by stimulating cell turnover and renewing skin cells that have encountered the damaging effects of sun, pollution and other environmental stressors,” he says. “Growth hormones are also released during this period of time while the body is at rest, making this the best time to stimulate collagen production with topical treatments for an even, luminous and youthful complexion.” Make the most of your beauty sleep with Dr. Brandt’s cult-favorite, Lineless Anti-Glycation Serum ($90).
