Face masks that work as you sleep.

We think face masks are a must in your beauty routine. Thing is, it’s kind of a hassle to have to wait and wash it all off, especially when you’re already tired at the end of a gruelling day. Or if you can’t resist some shut eye, you’d eventually drift into sleep while the sheet mask is still plastered to your face.

One solution that settles this predicament? Overnight masks. It’s perfect. You just slap it on, let the goodness sink in and leave it to work its magic – all while you sleep your way to beautiful skin the morning after. Since we’re exposed to air-conditioning so often, it’s important to ensure our skin is sufficiently nourished and well-hydrated so it doesn’t dry out.

Here are our top picks for overnight hydrating and whitening masks.

1. Laneige Water Sleeping Pack_EX HK$195/80ml. Suitable for all skin types, it has a gel-like texture. It deeply hydrates and has a brightening effect due to the Himalayan Snow Water it contains. What you get is crystal clear, vitalised skin. Its patented Sleepscent™ relaxes your mind and helps promote good sleep.  Available at B242, B2/F, Times Square, 1 Matheson Street, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong. Tel: 3571 9952

2. Vichy Aqualia Thermal Spa Sleeping Mask HK$270/75ml. An allergy-tested, paraben-free product great for sensitive skin. The cream gel replenishes skin with its mineral-rich Thermal Spa Water and two times hyaluronic acid for supple, plump skin. Just what you need when your skin feels dehydrated and fatigued. Available at Mannings and Watson’s stores.

3. Fresh Peony Whitening Night Treatment Mask HK$400/50ml. Made specifically for Asian skin, this has a light creamy texture that comes out from a pump and spreads easily. Its whitening complex made of peony and licorice root extracts and vitamin C glucoside inhibits melanin production, which causes your skin to darken. The mask lightens dark spots and corrects skin tone. Available at Lane Crawford counters and FACES Queensway.
