You might think that sleeping masks are another unnecessary addition to your skincare routine. We know how a multi-step can get overwhelming. But sometimes, the extra step really does make a mountain of difference. We know you already know your basics and maybe a sleeping mask is just excessive. Well, we’ll try to change your mind.
Overnight sleeping masks are like sheet masks but you actually leave them on while you sleep. The idea is they work as your body recuperates from all the energy and effort you exerted during the day. Sleeping masks are said to be created with the same ingredients as skin resurfacing products but are gentler and milder. So just think of it as something to add to your routine for a good night’s sleep and much better skin.
If you’re ready to take the plunge, here are some masks you can add to your to-try list.
