Overnight masks are nothing new, but they've gotten exponentially more popular in the past few months. In fact, our resident Asian skincare experts predicted they would be the next BB cream back in May—and they were right. But here’s the thing: Unlike BB creams, they’re not exactly universally beneficial. Marketed as life-savers for those with super-dry skin, they promise to help you wake up glowy and dewy—which makes them seem superfluous for those who are more worried about wrinkles or oil control. But that’s where you’re wrong—the new generation of overnight masks do much more than hydrate and are packed with brightening, smoothing, and firming ingredients. Because everyone deserves to get good skin in their sleep.
