7 Overnight Masks For The Ultimate Beauty Sleep
Beauty sleep in a bottle? It might sound too good to be true. But the beauty world has been abuzz about the latest skin saving product, that works its magic while we nap: the overnight mask.
Scientifically speaking, snoozing while masking is an efficient way to beautify. “Your skin is in repair mode when you sleep and is a great time for certain ingredients to do their job,” says Dr Aneesh Sheth, of homegrown vegan and cruelty-free skincare brand Dr Sheth’s. In case you’re wondering how it’s any different from applying a trusty night cream or face serum, a sleep mask actually works through the night. “A night cream is great for hydration and a good end to the day, and a serum is a concentrated dose of ingredients. A sleeping mask on the other hand has a longer span post-application,” adds Sheth.
So why not make use of this precious healing period, to say, work on perfecting a healthy glow and letting your skin absorb a bounty of delicious ingredients?
