Byrdie Approved: The 7 Most Hydrating Overnight Masks
It’s hard enough to deal with all the skin concerns we juggle on a daily basis (SPF, serums, breakouts, drinking enough water!), but add in the changing of the seasons, and suddenly dryness and unbalanced oil production are in the mix. Studies have shown that our skin tends to lose moisture while we sleep, so why not fight the problem with an overnight mask? These super-hydrating products will not only help your skin retain moisture but also allow you to wake up with a glowing, smooth, fresh face with minimal effort.
