Giving a whole new meaning to "I woke up like this!"
You might think that sleeping masks or overnight masks are unnecessary additions to your skin care routine, but once you've tried it, you'll see just how much of a difference they can make! Not only do these products rejuvenate your skin while you sleep, they also help shield it from moisture-sucking heating or AC so you'll wake up to glowing, soft and hydrated skin!
And while sleeping masks may seem best suited for those with dry skin, there are plenty of products out there that will suit oily and combination skin types too. Here, we share some of our favourites:
For dry skin: Beauty of Joseon Revitalize Sleeping Mask
Made with hanbang or traditional Korean herbal ingredients, this mask is a real hydrating treat for dry or dehydrated skin. Elasticity-boosting black soybean, revitalising ginseng and softening orchid helps firm, smooth and moisturise the skin while you sleep, so you'll wake up to bouncy, moisturised, and soft skin overnight!
For oily skin: COSRX Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask
Oily skin types might not need as much moisture, but you will benefit from a formula that can help smooth, soften, and calm oily skin. This COSRX mask has a lightweight formula packed with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory ingredients to help to heal acne and other sensitivities associated with having oily skin. Two other great choices for oily skin that's also acne-prone is the COSRX Low pH BHA Overnight Mask and Neogen A-Clear Soothing Overnight Mask.
For combination skin: Laneige Water Sleeping Mask
This list will not be complete without the mention of this classic K-Beauty favourite! The Laneige Water Sleeping Mask purifies and recharges without feeling heavy on the skin. A Nudie Glow customer commented that "It is lightweight, easy to layer with other products, not oily, and you wake up with an even complexion and super soft skin." What more can you ask for?
For sensitive skin: Dr. Jart Sleepair Ampoule-in Mask

For normal skin: Huxley Sleep Mask; Good Night
Normal skin types can probably use any sleeping mask in this list. However, we've specially picked the Huxley Sleep Mask for you, as it’s the perfect middle-ground for those who aren’t too dry, too oily, or too sensitive. Plus, it has that wonderful signature Huxley scent that will give your a pleasant sleeping experience!
