Have you ever been told you look tired, or asked if you didn’t sleep well the night before? Usually the restless night of sleep, late night out, or early morning wake up call is evident on our face. When we sleep our skin goes into repair mode and when we shorten those hours of rest, we are shortening the time our body gets to rebalance itself. Beauty recipes you can leave on overnight have a better chance of making a difference on tired, dull or over stressed skin and hair. Here are some simple, all-natural overnight masks to make the most of your sleep.
Royal Jelly Mask
Splash your skin with water, then gently rub the concoction on your face or body in a circular motion. Rinse well. May also leave on as an overnight mask. It looks good enough to spread on toast and it is safe to eat. Find it at Handcrafted Snailmail.

Laneige Water Sleeping Mask
It helps to lock the moisture in the skin overnight as our skin loses a lot of moisture during the night. This causes our skin to look more radiant in the morning. The anti-oxidant function of apricot extract provides a brightening effect that makes our skin look clearer and brighter by removing free radicals stressing out our skin. The lightweight gel gives our skin a good night rest by providing a moisturizing and refreshing feeling without leaving any sticky residue. Find it at La Peau.
