Does anyone have time to mask out there? Check out my top five overnight masks that work while you sleep…
I’m really enjoying the renaissance of the humble face mask but what I’m particularly pleased about is how they’ve morphed from being a laborious task into one that won’t cut into your downtime. Enter the overnight mask that you put on, sleep in, and ta daaaa – you’re done. Here’s my top five:
1. Shiseido Ibuki Beauty Sleeping Mask, $66.
They say it’s like a ‘full night’s sleep in a jar’ and I have to say it does leave your skin feeling pretty hydrated. It’s super easy to use too – simply spread the gel-like mask on your face before bed and let it work its magic while you sleep.
While most overnight masks aim to infuse hydration this one works to fight fine lines and wrinkles while you sleep. The anti-ageing mask also hydrates and promotes elasticity during the night as your skin goes through its natural regeneration process. It couldn’t be easier!
It’s the heavier option however if your skin is particularly parched from being in an air-conditioned office all day – then this is the hydration hit you need. Your skin should be dewy when you wake…
A mask that tans and hydrates while you sleep, you say? Yes please! This one takes multi-tasking to the extreme and will give your skin a light tan, while providing a hydration boost. And the colourless gel-like formula will also ensure that you won’t stain your pillow in your attempt to get that sought-after golden glow.
Got a long haul flight coming up? Then this should be your number one essential. The mix of avocado and apricot kernel oil will quench dry skin, while Japanese seaweed works to repair the skin’s barrier to prevent future dehydration. This one will plump and hydrate lacklustre and thirsty skin…[nb: This is not an overnight mask used in the image – that was put on for visual effect. Overnight face masks are usually a white or translucent colour so won’t come off on your sheets!]
