As we spend more time in the hustle to make money and have a good life, our skin tends to take the hit. We end up being exposed to pollution and an unhealthy diet making our skin appear more dehydrated, dull, and subject to premature damage.
However, the good news is that a proper night beauty routine can help counteract the damage accumulated during the day. Besides using multiple products in our beauty regime, we need to introduce overnight face masks or sleeping masks.
Remember the term “beauty sleep?” This is not merely a cliché. The night is when most of the products are most effective because the skin is more receptive, and the skin’s self-repair mechanisms are accelerated. Unlike your daytime masks, the overnight mask is transparent and presents itself in the form of an easily absorbable gel or cream.
1. Laneige Water Sleeping Mask
Laneige’s mask has a gel-like texture to it, but it does not feel sticky or tacky. The moisture packed in it recharges and deeply hydrates your skin as you sleep, and even on days when you don’t sleep for long, your face never looks tired.
The mask should be used two or three times a week or as your skin requires and should be the last skincare routine for the night. Rinse off with warm water when you wake up and say goodbye to dehydrated skin.
