Why do I love overnight masks, you ask? Ok but first let’s take a step back: What is an overnight mask? An overnight mask is exactly what it sounds like – it’s a facial mask that you put on before bedtime, sleep in, and then wash off the next morning. Nighttime is the best time to treat your skin so think of an overnight mask as “beauty sleep”…… amplified. Now, back to the question about why I love these treatments? The answer is because my skin needs all the help it can get (I blame the kids) and because my time is limited to actually pamper my skin during the day. I love the fact that I can sleep and reap the benefits of powerful ingredients absorbing into my skin.
Longtime readers know I have always been a fan of the Kiehl’s Hydrating Overnight Mask. Kiehl’s just launched a firming mask, and yep, I certainly need help in that area too. I’ve been using the new Ginger Leaf and Hibiscus Firming Overnight Mask pretty much every night for the past few weeks and you can instantly feel it working. After I wash my face at night, I apply a generous amount in upward strokes, then just go to bed. Unlike typical masks that dry on your skin and begin to crack, this mask absorbs into your skin so you don’t have to worry about anything getting on your pillow. As you sleep, the tightening properties of the ginger leaf do their thing so you wake up knowing your skin got a little extra love as you slept (or sort of slept) – will we really ever sleep through the night again?!
