Overnight masks: what do they really do for your skin?

November 12th, 2017

Over the past two years, one of the biggest skincare trends to dominate the current market has been face masks. You’ve learnt why they are an essential part of your skincare regime (here), how to ‘multimask’ here or even how to ‘binge mask’ here.

To coincide with the launch of the Midnight Radiance Mask, we explore why overnight masks are just as integral to your skincare regime as the others within your collection.

To begin with, it is important to understand that overnight masks are designed for night-time use and work their magic while you rest.

Unlike their clay or mud based sisters, these supercharged treatments soak into skin right away. And no, they won’t transfer to your pillow. These masks don't need to be removed until the morning when you cleanse your face again. To keep it simple, think about your evening routine as the following: cleansing, exfoliating, moisturising and masking,

Skin can lose a lot of water during your sleep, so the main purpose of overnight masks is to create a permeable seal on top of your skin, which will make anything underneath it penetrate better. A great advantage of night creams is that masks especially gel ones, are lighter so your skin will continue breathing and make sure you have your best beauty sleep.

While sleeping, skin cells naturally repairs themselves, making it the prime time for active ingredients to penetrate deep into the skin and do their job.

Using an overnight mask is the easiest way to get these right ingredients into your skin for a softer, smoother and suppler complexion in the morning.
