Why You Should Include an Overnight Mask in Your Skincare Routine


A good night’s sleep is essential to getting better looking skin.

It’s the time when our skin repairs itself as we doze off to dreamland. As beauty sleep works its magic, you can amp up its effects with a supercharged overnight mask. Following the trend from South Korea, overnight masks are the newest and most convenient way to supply your skin with moisture that will last you the next day.

Here’s everything you need to know before sleeping your way to brighter, more supple skin:

What’s an overnight mask?

Unlike sheet and clay masks that only sit on your face for a few minutes, an overnight mask is meant to be applied 30 minutes before going to bed. It’s then left on while you’re sleeping, and washed off the next morning before your daytime skincare routine. There’s also no need to worry about getting it all over your pillowcase. The formula of overnight masks makes it easily absorbed by the skin so it clings to your face even when you toss and turn at night. But if you want to be safe, lay a towel on your pillowcase to protect it from stains.

What are the benefits of using an overnight mask?

Because you leave an overnight mask on longer, it’s more potent and delivers stronger results like hydration, brightening your skin, and tightening your pores with minimum effort. It also acts as a sealant for other products applied on your face. It sits on top of your serum, moisturizer, and other skincare products to prevent them from drying out easily. But if you want to keep your skincare routine simple, using an overnight mask alone is enough to help keep your skin moisturized. After all, overnight masks are designed to hydrate your skin for longer periods of time. Just make sure to use it three times a week for optimum results.

What kind of overnight mask is right for me?

When choosing overnight masks, choose one that is composed of natural ingredients like SNAILWHITE Icy Mask overnight facial mask. It is made of Snail Potion and French silene colorata flower that gives a natural glowing complexion while you sleep. The potent combination of star ingredients is capable of brightening your skin and reducing the appearance of redness and dark spots for a blemish-free complexion. It can also visibly tighten your pores and help restore balance at night to make skin look younger and firmer.

Make sleep count. Give your skin a helping hand as it repairs itself when you sleep with SNAILWHITE Icy Mask.
