Anti-Ageing Sleeping Masks For Fresher Skin The Morning After

Research has shown that long-term sleep deprivation can lead to the formation of more wrinkles and a loss in skin elasticity. But if you’re too busy to apply a night treatment before you sleep, then opt for a leave-on mask. They condition and nourish your complexion as you snooze so your skin looks brighter, healthier and more youthful when you wake up. Another plus: they can take the place of your moisturiser so you can skip a step and save time.

#1: Fresh Black Tea Firming Overnight Mask, $144
This moisturising treatment helps to define and contour the complexion. It works in sync with skin’s natural nighttime recovery process by delivering nourishing, firming ingredients when the skin is most receptive to them. It has a black tea complex that inhibits damaging free radicals while improving skin’s elasticity, as well as helps to soften, smooth, and improve radiance. Blackberry leaf extract helps firm and smooth the skin, lychee seed extract helps maintain elasticity and smoothness and Belle de Nuit soothes and balances. #2: L'Occitane Immortelle Divine Cream Mask, $189
This rich melting cream can be used daily to treat dehydrated complexions. Immortelle extracts help to improving microcirculation for a healthier complexion while also reversing the effects of free radical damage and strengthening connective network of skin for a smoother texture. Shea butter repairs and intensely hydrates, while cistus relaxes and soothes. #3: Orbis Koubijin Night Time Pack, $48
This boosts clarity and works on dullness, dryness and firmness as you snooze. Lactic acid from fermented soy milk suppresses melanin production to brighten and fight against pigmentation, fermented rice liquor has amino acids to boost skin’s ability to retain moisture, while yeast extract promotes collagen production to improve skin elasticity. #4: Laneige Time Freeze Firming Sleeping Mask, $53
This treats five signs of ageing: dryness, texture, fine wrinkles, large pores and skin tone. It contains Pinitol, a tree extract that is said to regenerate damaged and aged collagen into healthy collagen. PeptideS derived from an amino acid promotes skin’s natural production of hyaluronic acid to provide hydration and firm skin. It also has a mesh-structured shape memory formula made up of polymers that works like a corset to help plump, tighten and firm skin. #5: La Mer The Lifting and Firming Mask, $370
This serum-strength sculpting mask boosts skin’s resilience by supporting its natural collagen production, as well as helps to soften, condition and refine. The brand’s signature Concentrated Miracle Broth intensifies the natural renewal process, providing energy to help skin focus on repair and soothe. A Concentrated Lifting Ferment penetrates skin with a blend of powerful brown algae, marine peptides and active marine plant stem cells to enhance skin’s support structure, increase skin’s density and elasticity, and helps to sculpt. #6: Kiehl's Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating Masque, $55
Formulated with Ophiopogon Japonicus extract, also known as “Fountain Plant”, this replenishes skin’s water reserves, allowing it to retain moisture and function like a “hydration reservoir” to boost hydration levels and leave skin smoother and softer, refreshed and supple.   Like this?
