Beauty 101: Sleeping Packs
You have your face masks and your night cream. But there's a new nighttime necessity boasting a brighter, more refreshed face by morning. Sleeping packs are a popular K-beauty trend that has made its way onto the beauty counter near you. Curious about how the heck to incorporate this step into your routine? We've got the 411 on this beauty trend.
The scoop: Also known as sleeping masks, sleeping packs are meant to be used once or twice a week to deliver an intense dose of hydration to your skin while you sleep. They're typically lighter feeling on skin (not goop-y or serum-y) and leave you feeling brighter and nourished.
Why it's necessary: Just as you turn to your weekly face mask to give you a high concentration of treatment in a flash, a sleeping pack is meant to treat your skin with serious moisture in just one use a.k.a. overnight.
How to do it: Unlike a heavy moisturizer or full-on face mask, you really only need about a dime or nickel-sized amount of a sleeping pack. Massage it into skin (all over your face) as the last step in your skincare routine.
