Overnight masks are the pinnacle of skincare innovation.
Face masks in general are a popular pick to add to one’s beauty regime, with an array that offer different benefits and applications. You’re probably familiar with the average 10-minute sheet mask, paint-on clay and those trending bubble masks. They’re totally fine for a low-commitment solution and we do love our quick-fixes!
Enter the revolutionary overnight mask. If you’re used to the temporary remedies, then slathering on a mask and leaving it on for longer than 20-minutes might seem like a nightmare.
However, you’ll be thrilled to know that overnight masks are nothing but a sweet dream – well, for your skin at least.
Debunking the Myths About Overnight Masks
There are a few tales floating around make overnight masks look like no-no products because they might not let the skin breathe or could leave a yucky residue.
Fear not! Overnight masks are practically the same consistency as a moisturiser, and they’re formulated to be absorbed quickly and effectively. Since they glide on with no weight or greasiness, neither your skin nor your pillows need to face the horror of icky stuff found on them come morning-time.
Overnight masks do the opposite of suffocating your skin, by locking in moisture for ultimate hydration. And we all know that hydration is the hero for anti-ageing magic to take place.
Why Should I Use Them?
Overnight masks are effortless and hassle-free. There’s literally no waiting time, so you can apply and go right to bed. Easy skincare is effective skincare. Having something like a simple overnight mask doesn’t involve too much time or skill, which means you can keep up a solid daily routine. The only thing your skin will love more than an overnight mask, is the consistency of a regime that keeps the goodness constant and doesn’t compromise or switch between a bunch of things.
So, it’s not really a competition of regular face masks versus overnight ones,
Here’s the cool, technical bit. Research shows that skin cells “replicate and reproduce” as you sleep (Barcella 2018). Therefore, overnight masks give that process a big boost to promote cell turnover and replenishment. When your body is recharging and rebalancing everything, overnight masks like ours supports it all – like a proud mum at her kid’s soccer game. Cue waking up to fresh, beautiful skin.
What’s Right For Me?

But to invest in youthful, radiant skin as you sleep, gel ones packed with antioxidants and vitamins with no exfoliants like AHA or BHA, are your go-to for happy, revitalised skin.
