Your skin concern? Go ahead and sleep on it.
We love when getting things done is so easy we can do it in our sleep. And now, we can add skincare to that list of breezy to-dos with overnight masks. From catching a tan and some Z’s at the same time to waking up with a bright outlook as well as complexion, these are the masks that redefine beauty sleep for the better. JESSICA VELEZ
In the winter, you barely see the sun—are you guys even friends anymore? It might seem counterintuitive, but when the moon shows its face, that’s when you can bring back your long-lost sunkissed look. After your cleansing ritual, lather Vita Liberata’s Self Tanning Night Moisture Mask on your face, neck, and décolleté to start building back your tan for a warm twist on the traditional holiday glow. In addition to its natural-looking bronzed effect, the vitamin-rich formula helps counter dry skin and telltale signs of aging.
Leave spots to the dalmatians. To help even skintone during sleep, generously apply First Aid Beauty’s Facial Radiance Overnight Mask to your entire face, not just problem areas. While you rest, niacinamide works the late shift on your skin’s surface, locking in hydration and giving your complexion a balanced look.
SEE THE BRIGHT SIDE
It’s impossible to wake up on the wrong side of the bed—so to speak—after falling asleep wearing this creamy brightening potion. K-Beauty star brand belif has impressed us with its Overnight Brightening Mask. It comes with ingredients you’d find inside a buried treasure chest: amber, pearl, and gold powder. We call it the gleam team. To top it off, the mixture smells like a delicious citrusy tart, so we would argue it brightens our mood as much as our skin.
BECOME A FIRM BELIEVER
Age really is nothin’ but a number when you use Fresh’s Black Tea Firming Overnight Mask. That black tea you’ve been using to endure the 3 p.m. slump? It also works miracles to help make your skin appear firmer and more lifted. Fresh harnesses the power of tea, the nocturnal flower belle de nuit, and blackberry and lychee extracts to formulate a ridiculously creamy mask for youthful-looking results.
QUENCH YOUR THIRST
Dehyrated skin is yesterday’s problem with CLINIQUE’s Moisture Surge Overnight Mask on your nightstand. It moisturizes skin with a combination of aloe barbadensis leaf water and murumuru and mango butters. Sounds good enough to eat, right? Your skin soaks it right up and creates a net-like structure to keep humectants from evaporating. You snooze, you lose dryness.
