Is it Worth Wearing A Facemask Overnight?


You think a 20-minute face mask is a lot of work? What about an overnight one? A string of brands are releasing formulas they suggest you wear from dusk to dawn, slathering creams onto clean skin and waking up to a well-rested glow, regardless of how much you tossed and turned. How? Think of them like super-hydrators.

I asked  Dr.Jart+’s Chief Dermatologist, Dr. Sung Jae Jung, to tell me why wearing a mask overnight is so much better than wearing one during an episode of The Daily Show. Like many of the products that have revolutionized our regimens in the states, these products have been standard practice in Korea for a while. “A sleeping mask is an essential Korean beauty ritual,” says Dr. Jung. “It creates a protective veil over skin, turning ‘beauty sleep’ into restorative action. It boosts hydration, strengthens the look of elasticity, locks in nutrients while you sleep, and enhances the power of your skincare regimen.”
