Wake Up and Glow with these Korean Sleeping Masks

Night creams and sleeping masks (aka sleeping packs) are essential in any skincare routine.  Your skin doesn’t behave the same when you sleep as it does during the day.  During the day, the skin plays a defensive role, protecting itself from the sun, pollution, weather conditions etc.  When you are asleep, the skin plays a restorative role, repairing and regenerating itself.  Improving our skin as we get our beauty sleep is definitely something we are all for.  Applying a product on our face and letting it work its magic after we hit the pillow is a simple enough idea, but knowing whether you should use a night cream or a sleeping pack is where things can get confusing.

Generally night creams are thicker and contain more nourishing and hydrating ingredients, than your daily moisturiser.  Sleeping packs are like night creams on steroids, they usually have a lightweight, gel-like texture and deliver a spa-like treatment overnight. Contrary do what you might think - they won’t make a mess on your pillowcase.  By leaving them on overnight, they create a seal to retain water allowing your skin to slowly absorb their nourishing, moisturising ingredients as you sleep. Allowing you to wake up to baby-soft, gorgeously glowing skin. 

You may be wondering: if a sleeping pack is more potent, why not use one every night?  Well your night cream is a daily hydration booster whereas a sleeping mask acts is more of a beauty treatment.  Treat yourself to an overnight face mask once or twice a week, or before a ‘big-day’to give your skin the extra oomph it deserves.   

Here are some Korean sleeping masks that can easily become a part of your skincare routine.
