Did you know that you can wake up with glowing, radiant skin without having to put in a ton of effort? Overnight skincare products are all the rage in beauty capital South Korea. Here, women who live hectic lives are streamlining their routines with powerhouse essences, ampoules, sleeping masks, and packs meant to be put on before going to bed and work while you sleep. Effortless beauty is right in your fingertips; we list down a few of our favorites below:
Laneige Water Sleeping Mask
If you’ve never heard the term sleeping mask before, think of it like a cross between a face mask and a night cream. Also called “sleeping pack”, it combines all the nourishing benefits of a conventional mask soaked in essence with the convenience of night creams that dry down clear. This combination leaves you with hydrated and moisturized skin in the morning. We love the Laneige Water Sleeping Mask – not only does it deliver intense moisture to your skin thanks to ingredients such as Hydro Ionized Mineral Water, it also helps soothe and purify your skin with patented Sleep-Tox™ technology. This sleep mask also smells like heaven: it’s infused with relaxing rose, sandalwood, and orange flower.
Innisfree Wine Jelly Sleeping Pack
Red wine isn’t just for soothing your broken heart anymore: the extracts in this sleeping pack exfoliate dead skin cells and help hydrate and moisturize the skin. Innisfree’s sleeping pack comes in a consistency that’s almost like jelly, adhering to your skin and acting like a protective barrier from elements that may dry it out, while also locking all the goodness and moisture in. This sleeping pack also boasts intense hydration properties, and can be used after applying BHAs or retinol.
Tony Moly Haeyo Zayo Hair Sleeping Pack
Why not take care of your hair while you sleep, too? TonyMoly’s Hair Sleeping Pack is an emulsion with a gel-like consistency that’s meant to be applied to damp hair before you sleep. This product contains extracts from coconut, vanilla, and lavender, all meant to soothe dry, damaged hair and make it soft and lustrous again. Best of all, there’s no need to wash the pack out of your hair in the morning, so you can get up and get right to styling.
Etude House Tint My Brows Gel
Brows on fleek that stay on fleek with just a few swipes? Sounds improbable, but not with Tint My Brows Gel from Etude House. Apply this tint to your brows and allow it to set before peeling it off and you’re guaranteed full, gorgeous brows for up to a week after – it’s sweat and water-proof. We recommend leaving the tint in for up to 2 hours for best results, which means this isn’t the product you want to reach for in the morning when you’re rushing to school or work. Get this done the night before and eliminate the step of having to draw and fill your brows in for a week, which means a few more minutes to sleep in.
Cosrx Acne Master Pimple Patches
These hydrocolloid patches are a godsend: they pull the pus out of your pimples while keeping the surface protected from your fingertips or elements that may cause them to become inflamed or infected. What you want to do is wait for a pimple to become ripe and pop it, wipe off the pus that flows out and slap one of these on the wound like a small, circular Band-Aid. Leave overnight and peel off in the morning, and never have to worry about pimple scarring ever again. You can also use this under your favorite foundation or BB cream during the day.
With these options right at your fingertips, you can rest assured that your beauty sleep will give you just the results you want.
