Your skin produces less sebum at night, and the lack of the protective layer of oil causes your skin to lose more moisture.
That’s why it’s important to turn to moisturising skincare products to ensure your skin is well hydrated throughout the night.
These six overnight masks are super hydrating and jam-packed with nourishing ingredients. Wake up to smooth and moisturised skin, at last.
1. Kiehl’s Ginger Leaf & Hibiscus Firming Mask ($88 for 100ml)
Beyond the fine lines that come with age, we also worry about our skin losing its elasticity and turning saggy.
Kiehl’s firming mask is infused with ginger leaf and hibiscus to nourish and tighten your skin overnight.
The smooth and velvety texture makes application fuss-free. It also contains essential oils for a soothing, calming aroma – perfect for bedtime.
Available at Kiehl’s outlets and leading departmental stores from July 1.
2. Kenzoki Belle De Jour Dream Night Mask ($136 for 75ml)
Formulated with white lotus extract, Kenzoki’s Belle De Jour Dream Night Mask is able to tackle the harmful effects from UV rays and other external pollutants you have been exposed to during the day. Apply a thin layer over your face in the evening.
The result? Plump and radiant skin by morning. Plus points for the aesthetically pleasing pastel pink and fluffy texture of the mask.

3. Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Overnight Firming Mask ($125 for 50ml)
This mask contains anti-ageing and hydrating properties. If you often sleep in an air-conditioned room, you may find yourself waking up with dry skin.
Elizabeth Arden’s Ceramide Overnight Firming Mask is formulated with hyaluronic acid and moisture-sealing technology – it forms a breathable film that prevents any moisture loss during your sleep.
It also contains alfalfa extract that will boost your skin’s natural ability to repair and renew. With its soothing fragrance, you are sure to get a good night’s rest.

5. Algenist Splash Absolute Hydration Replenishing Sleeping Pack ($75 for 60ml)
