As much as I love dedicating 30 minutes to my nightly skin-care routine, on the days I inevitably binge-watch something past my bedtime, it can be hard to commit to my full routine. So if you're anything like me, how about applying an overnight facial so you can get radiant skin while you sleep instead of sitting around for another 20 minutes? That way you won't have to feel like you're sacrificing your skin by skipping a mask or treatment. And lucky for us lazy gals, there are plenty of options for overnight treatments.
Besides the fact that a sleeping facial reduces your getting-ready-for-bed time, it also takes care of a couple other facial-related nuisances. First of all, let's be honest: One of the worst parts of masking is having to wash off all that goo at the end of it. But with something you can slather on and sleep in, a trip to the sink is out of the equation. Score. Plus, if you want radiant skin quickly, many of those at-home facials can be irritating or leave you with an uncomfortable tingling or even burning sensation. But resurfacing treatments that are meant to be left on for hours at a time are way gentler. Convinced yet? So you can sleep your way to smoother, more radiant skin, here are 10 overnight facials to try, like, tonight:
