Skincare masks are a thing that I believe everyone needs in their life. It’s also something that men and women can equally get excited about and benefit from in their skincare routine. 

I personally use masks to improve my complexion, for more radiance and hydration, and to clear up my acne prone skin. In the last few years I’ve added sleep masks into the mix and my skin has never been better! These masks work while I sleep to take all the above things mentioned to the next level. So let’s get into a few of my favorites:

Glow Watermelon Sleeping Mask

This mask had folks losing their minds when it hit the market last year and was selling out as soon as retailers restocked. At one point last spring there was a 5,000 person waiting list for the product. What makes this product so worthy you ask? For me, it’s like I’ve given my skin a glass of glow-juice! This stuff is amazing. It feels and smells amazing. I love using it after doing a treatment mask to restore moisture to my skin.

Farmacy Sleep Tight Firming Night Balm

As far as nighttime balms go, this one is a game changer! This lightweight anti-aging balm protects and nourishes the skin while giving it a glow that can’t be ignored. Some of its key ingredients are extracts from the South African Acmella plant which stimulates collagen production and  Vitamin C to renew the skin and help with hyperpigmentation.

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating Masque

If you are looking for hydration for the skin this is the mask for you; plus it works while you are sleep. It’s like giving your skin a big glass of water thanks to the addition of Fountain Plant in this product. The Fountain Plant helps the skins natural ability to retain water. This fragrant and silicon free mask is also packed with glacial proteins and desert plant, which makes the skin softer and more supple. You’ll wake with extremely hydrated and better-looking skin after only one use.

Botanic Farms Black Soybean Milk Pudding Sleeping Pack

New in my rotation is this K-Beauty power pack. I use it on those nights that I need to brighten, moisturize and repair my skin! They had me when I saw it contained Niacinamide, Hyaluronic Acid, and Adenosine, but those aren’t the ingredients that make it special. That goes to the fermented black soybean that contains omega acids which aid in moisture and younger-looking skin. I can’t forget to mention that it smells like chocolate- this is because of the cacao extract.

Do you use a sleep mask, and if so which are your faves and why?

Until soon…Toodles
