Besides treating your skin to a good 8 hours of sleep every night, why don’t you treat it even better by applying an overnight treatment? These overnight masks, also referred to as sleeping masks or sleeping packs, take things to the next level, and the best time to apply them is at night when our skin goes into repair mode.
Sleeping masks are super easy to use, too. Simply apply one at the last step of your skin care routine and make sure you incorporate it into your routine at least once or twice a week. By applying an overnight mask, you’re actually helping your skin regenerate and heal. This is especially important if you have a weak or damaged skin barrier.
