You’re going to come out from this partial lockdown with your best skin ever.
As awful as it feels to be stuck at home for a whole month, we know you’ve been clocking in at least eight hours of sleep daily since the Restricted Movement Order was implemented. We’re not calling you out for not working hard at home but with the amount of time saved by not having to get ready and brace the morning traffic — we’d say you now have extra time to snooze a little longer.
Sheet masks are great to allow its formula to penetrate deep into the skin during that 20 minutes of application. But these sleeping masks are the ones that will work hard while you sleep. Your skin goes through a natural cell regeneration process while you sleep — what this will do is restore moisture and boost your skin’s immunity.
With the addition of a sleeping mask, you’ll be able to help your skin cells to regenerate even faster and hydration levels will be boosted too. Hence why the result is usually bouncy, glowing and healthy-looking skin. Here are six sleeping masks to try.
Formulated with barrier-replenishing ingredients including niacinamide, sodium PCA, plant squalane, five forms of ceramides, omega fatty acids and powerful antioxidants — it’s basically an electrolyte cocktail for your skin. There is a pleasantly cool sensation on the skin once applied, and the product will then work its magic overnight by constantly hydrating the skin.
As your skin works hard to repair itself while you sleep, boost its efficiency with this sleeping mask that contains certified organic silver ear mushroom and coconut milk. In addition to that, caviar lie and kakadu plum extracts help to boost your skin’s hydration levels, so you’ll wake up with soft bouncy skin. Did we mention that this is also a pillow-proof formula? No more waking up to stains on your pillow from your skincare products.
Don’t think we’ve forgotten to include this iconic sleeping mask. Laneige Water Sleeping Mask is one of the first overnight masks in the market loved by many across the globe for its obvious results. The secret lies in the Sleep-tox technology that purifies the skin during sleep, so you’ll wake up with hydrated and brighter-looking skin — even if you had less than eight hours of sleep.
This overnight mask contains Indian ginseng and pterostilbene to help energise your skin, boost its immunity and accelerate cell renewal while you sleep. It gives life to dull and sallow skin, so you’ll wake up with beautiful, glowy skin. It also provides intense hydration thanks to its antioxidant-rich organic argan oil and artic cranberry seed oil.
While we thought purifying masks normally comes in wash-off formulas, this one is for your bedtime. It’s a delicate purifying sleep mask formulated with popular purifying ingredient Australian Pink Clay to rejuvenate, balance oil production and brighten the skin. Acai and snowflower seed oil are included to nourish the skin.
This sleeping mask is suitable for those who often wake up with tight, dry skin in the morning. Once applied, the yoghurt-like texture gives your skin into a velvety finish overnight.
