Overnight Masks Bring New Meaning To “Beauty Sleep”
Long loved in Asia (and we all know how valued skincare is in Asia!), the overnight mask is about to revolutionize your nightly skincare routine.
Applied at the end of your regular evening skincare routine, these overnight masks are designed to work long and hard while you sleep, complimenting your body’s natural resting and healing cycles to amplify your beauty sleep exponentially!
Here are 4 we’re currently loving – although expect to see many more overnight masks hit the market in the near future!
4 Overnight Masks We Love
For dry skin… Laneige Water Sleeping Mask ($21.85)
Apply this lightweight gel to your face, neck, and decollate before bed to envelope parched skin in concentrated, ionized mineral water and ceramides, which deliver intensive doses of moisture to dehydrated skin. Better yet, its scent (a mixture of orange flower, rose, and sandalwood) is designed to help you to relax (and we all know the power of beauty sleep!) while apricot and chestnut extracts brighten and purify stressed skin so you can hit the sack knowing you’ll wake with hydrated, softer, brighter skin.
For dull, deflated skin… The Body Shop Drops Of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask ($30)
With Edelweiss stem cells (for their exceptional renewing properties), hyaluronic acid (to help skin absorb moisture) and Community Fair Trade Babassu oil (to help skin retain moisture), it’s no wonder that 70% of women agree that skin looks bouncier after using this overnight mask. Apply it like you would a night cream at the end of your skincare routine, and get some Zzz’s while the mask does its job to replenish your dull complexion.
For uneven skintone… Belif First Aid Overnight Brightening Mask ($34)
Formulated with black truffle, amber, pearl, and gold powder capsules, this creamy, lightweight overnight mask boosts radiance and evens skintone, all while you sleep. You can also use this overnight mask in place of your usual moisturizer for an added boost of hydration and brightness.
For aging skin… La Prairie Skin Caviar Luxe Sleep Mask ($315)
One to three times per week, apply this overnight mask to clean skin using the included brush to repair and replenish your face while you sleep. Formulated to work in conjunction with your body’s sleep cycle, this overnight mask will leave you with fewer wrinkles, firmer skin, a smoother texture and a healthier glow with continued use.
