10 Overnight Face Masks That Hydrate Skin In Your Sleep

The thought of slathering on a face mask before you go to sleep sounds like a bed linen nightmare, seeing as no one wants to wake up to product smeared all over their pillow.

But the good news is overnight face masks are pillow-proof formulas that quickly dissolve into the skin when applied, and stay put as you sleep. And they offer a lot of skincare benefits, too.

“While you sleep, blood flow to the skin increases, and the skin tries to repair itself,” explains Dr. Rosemarie Ingleton, dermatologist and medical director of Ingleton Dermatology. “Overnight face masks can help this recovery process as active ingredients are better absorbed and penetrate more deeply.”

So if you’re looking to take your nighttime skincare routine to the next level, it’s time to try this bedtime treat.

Ten overnight masks that will help enhance your skin while you get your beauty sleep, ahead.
