As much as I love pumicing, scrubbing, cleansing, and dripping oils all over my face every night, I do have something to confess: I wish skincare was easier. I've been diligently doing a nighttime and morning beauty routine for years, but it can get dull. And I love doing a face mask for some extra T.L.C., but then there's the washing off process, the forgetting it's on and smudging it on your boyfriend's shirt process, and the wait-I-thought-I'd-look-different-after process. So many processes, and all you want to do is go to bed. If only there was something you could do for your skin while you sleep! Thus, overnight face masks were invented. 

Night masks are the answer to my prayers. Not only are they the easiest thing in the world to apply, but after they're on, you can hop right into dreamland and wake up actually noticing a difference. While overnight face masks have typically been used as a way to give your skin an extra boost of moisture, there are now overnight masks for every skin concern imaginable. Want to wake up looking younger? There's a mask for that. Want your skin to not feel itchy and irritated by morning? Hey presto—there's a mask for that, too.
