Need a beauty product that works while you’re taking your goodnight sleep? Come meet your new beauty staple: overnight sleeping masks.
Are you a fan of 10 step Korean skincare routine or are you a lazy head who wants impeccable skin but cannot put yourself through the elongated process of cleansing, exfoliating and lathering XY amount of products onto your skin before you can finally say that you have completed your skincare routine! Well, a lot of us fall under the latter category, so it is quite understandable.
But what if we tell you that there is a product in the market that helps you achieve that ‘glass skin’ without putting much effort and still works magic on you while you sleep?
Yes, you read that right! The beauty market is abuzz with this current fav- overnight sleeping masks. You shouldn’t confuse them with the satin eye masks though that people wear on aeroplanes; these latest additions to the skincare products generally come in a gel or thick cream form that is supposed to be applied on your face…(well you guessed it right) before sleeping. These sleeping masks are designed to provide maximum hydration to your skin and they work as a restorative agent while you are asleep.
Overnight Sleeping Masks Into Our Beauty Routine
Scientifically, our bodies are in the rejuvenation and repairing stage while we are asleep and this process speeds up from 10 pm-2 am. These sleeping masks add a helping hand to this process by acting as a barrier to the nasties and a sealant for the good ingredients that our skin needs to repair itself.
We all know that Korean skincare has already created a huge fan base over the world in recent times and while the beauty enthusiasts are already going gaga over their routine and skincare products, the latest in the batch to be included is the overnight sleeping mask. Originally a Korean trend too, the popularity of this product has spiraled manifolds due to its effectiveness and composition.
How Exactly Does Overnight Sleeping Masks Work
These masks are essentially a supercharged version of moisturiser that boosts volumes of hydration into the skin while you are sleeping. Speaking of hydration, we all know that scorching summer heat can be quite damaging to the skin. This is actually a good time to switch to products that are lightweight and absorbent in texture. The skin loses its hydration and as a result, gives way to fine lines and wrinkles being formed. This is where an overnight mask comes to the rescue.
Formulated with ingredients that are hydrating and soothing, these masks are ultra- intensive, deliver potent ingredients that work all night to plump, hydrate, revitalize, and soften your skin. By the time you wake up, the product will have absorbed, and your skin will feel renewed. All you need is a light coating of this product before hitting the bed and that’s it!
Needless to say, our skincare routine gets a lot more extensive during the winter season. Unlike summer, when the hot, sticky air makes us want to wear less–with the exception of sun protection, of course, also in summers it is always advisable to keep the skin free from layering many products as too much can result in oily skin and break outs. But what to do when you feel dehydrated and your skin lacks lustre? Just a single application of an overnight sleeping mask and your skin will thank you.
When To Apply Overnight Sleeping Mask?
Overnight sleeping masks are usually applied as the last step of your nighttime skincare routine, on top of toner, essence. You can use it twice or thrice a week.
How To Apply Overnight Sleeping Mask?
- You can just apply this mask as you would a regular cream: Scoop a coin size dollop, spread it over your face, waiting until about 30 minutes before bedtime will also help it absorb and prevent staining your pillowcase.
- Then simply head to bed, and then wake up and wash off to reveal brighter, smoother skin. This should be the last step of your night skincare routine.
- However, be sure to apply it to clean skin and with clean hands.
