5 Amazing Overnight Beauty Face Masks
I’ll admit I’m a bit obsessive when it comes to my skin care nighttime ritual. It usually involves deep cleansing with a beauty balm, massage with an essential oil blend, toning, night cream, eye cream, hydration mist and a few times per week, an overnight beauty mask. Can you blame a girl for wanting to wake up looking gorgeous?
I’m always looking for multitasking products that will give me an insanely moisturized, soft, glow-y complexion and I’ve found 5 amazing masks that work while you sleep! No special skills required, except slathering it on and waking up gorg. Here’s everything you need to know about the laziest way get to fabulous, radiant skin.
This is an intensely moisturizing overnight treatment that works in sync with the skin’s natural nighttime recovery process to achieve a lifted, firmer look by the morning. With ingredients like Kombucha, lychee and blackberry it is a powerful free-radical fighting antioxidant (fights off environmental skin agers like smoke and pollution) combination that also makes for a super-effective anti-aging formula. It also contains hyaluronic acid which helps attract and trap moisture in the skin. This is my absolute go-to mask, when I want to look 5 years younger (which is always) or when I have a special event to attend. The result is super soft, hydrated, firm skin.
For as long as I can remember I’ve been dealing with the roller coaster that is combination skin. To add insult to injury, add adult acne and occasional rosacea flare ups to the mix. The result is dry, dehydrated, flaky, irritated, red, oily skin. Yes. That’s right. Dry and oily all in one. Fabulous right? Not really…
When I first tried this mask I had NO IDEA it was an amazing acne healer. With organic soya oil and vitamin E as the primary ingredients, this mask delivers spa quality results. Soya oil has moisturizing and healing properties that make it ideal for intensive skin care treatments. Vitamin E conditions, nourishes, and protects the skin, leaving it soft, smooth, and healthy. This mask is a must whenever I get a breakout or when my skin feels depleted and dehydrated.
This is my budget find. If you’re a reader of this blog then you know that I love freeman beauty masks, especially the single serve pouches like this one. This mask delivers high quality results for two bucks! It is packed with antioxidant-rich honeydew and calming chamomile, rejuvenating your skin while you sleep. I found it to be especially soothing and hydrating for the drier parts of my skin. So I would say it is well suited for dry skin. The best part is that these single serve pouches are awesome for travelling. I usually pick up my favorites and always bring them with me whenever I travel, to pamper my skin from all the different climatic changes. You can read about my other favorites here.
I was super excited to try this mask from AmorePacific, since they make my favorite cushion foundation ever. This mask feels like such a luxurious treatment. It is so yummy it eliminates the need for your usual night cream altogether. It is formulated with 5-Hydra Complex™, a potent blend of Asian botanicals that delivers maximum hydration and fortifies skin’s natural protective barrier as you sleep. Their exclusive Self-Transforming Technology™ ensures that skin maintains maximum moisture overnight. It is also formulated without parabens or sulfates making it excellent for sensitive skin. The result is plump, hydrated, smooth skin that looks amazing with or without makeup. Every time I use this I get so many compliments on my skin. It truly delivers that glow factor.
When everything seems to irritate my skin, I turn to Kiehl’s. Why? Because their products are very gentle on super sensitive skins like mine due to the omission of parabens, fragrance and colorants. This mask is my go to after a looong night of partying. It helps to instantly boost skin’s ability to absorb and hold moisture for long-lasting hydration and glacial proteins and desert plants leave skin smooth, soft, refreshed and supple. It is also my must-use product when my skin misbehaves and I end up with rosacea flare ups.
