How to use overnight masks for magic skin by morning

Is your skin craving an extra dose of night-time TLC? Discover the benefits of overnight masks and how to apply them in this helpful guide.

Darlings, did you know that night-time is when your skin focuses on repairing and restoring itself? As you sleep, your skin switches to ‘recovery mode’, produces new collagen and floods your skin cells with extra oxygen and nutrients. The more sleep you get, the plumper and more youthful looking your skin will look! That’s why it’s called beauty sleep, darlings!

To help maximise your beauty sleep potential, it’s so important to give your skin a helping hand while you sleep with MIRACLE-MAKING products like overnight masks and night creams. But what are night creams and overnight masks? How do you use them? And how do you apply them?

Read on to discover everything you need to know about overnight masks and night creams including my MAGIC tips on when and how to apply them.

What are night creams?

Night creams are one of the essential products for your night-time skincare regime. Generally, they’re thicker, denser and richer than day creams, flooding your skin with extra moisture and helping your skin to tackle a range of concerns from fine lines and wrinkles to dryness and oiliness as you sleep.

My award-winning Magic Night Cream is an overnight skincare must-have containing my magic matrix of ingredients including plant stem cells and vitamin E to give you supple and bouncy-looking skin by morning! Its rich formula also contains the MAGIC of retinol, the iconic ingredient that helps increase your skin cell production and helps your skin to produce collagen, meanwhile VISIBLY SMOOTHING, FIRMING and FRESHENING up your entire complexion.

As a rule, night cream should be applied to your skin every night as part of your research-powered evening skincare ritual. My Magic Night Cream can help target dehydration overnight and LOCK moisture into your skin. When used every night, you’ll wake up to skin that feels healthier, lifted-looking and more nourished!

What are overnight masks?

Overnight masks are a little different to night creams. While night creams are essentially evening moisturisers, overnight masks provide your skin with an extra dose of TLC (Tilbury Loving Care!) whenever you need it!

My Multi-Miracle Glow is a MIRACLE-MAKING skincare icon that can be used as an overnight facial mask whenever your skin is craving an extra hit of hydration and softness! Its supercharged ingredients will moisturise, smooth and brighten the appearance of your complexion as you sleep, leaving you with youthful-looking skin with an overnight facial finish!

How to Use Multi-Miracle Glow Overnight Mask

How to use an overnight mask

To reap all the benefits of my MAGIC Multi-Miracle Glow as an overnight mask, simply massage a thin layer into your clean, dry skin using my WONDER WORKOUT massage technique while making sure to avoid your eye area. Then, leave it on overnight and wash off any excess in the morning for youthful skin that’s LOOKING BRIGHT and BABY SOFT!

For the best effects, I recommend using my Multi-Miracle Glow as an overnight facial mask once or twice a week. But if you’re looking for an extra dose of its supercharged ingredients, you can also use it as a dreamy deep cleanser or supermodel-worthy beauty balm.

To use as a cleanser, simply massage a thin layer into your skin using my WONDER WORKOUT massage technique and then rinse away after 10 minutes. Or to use this MIRACLE 3-in-1 product as a beauty balm, simply apply it directly onto targeted areas and massage in for a polished, supermodel-looking finish!

How much to apply

When it comes to applying my Multi-Miracle Glow as an overnight mask, all you need is a thin layer to cover your face and neck.

If your skin is dry and craving an extra hit of hydration, you can double the amount you apply but remember, a little goes a long way with this product! Then, when you wake up, rinse away any excess for skin that’s FEELING smooth, supercharged and GLOWING!

Should you use both a night cream and an overnight mask together?

While there’s no harm in using my Magic Night Cream and Multi-Miracle Glow together, I recommend skipping my Magic Night Cream on the nights you use Multi-Miracle Glow as an overnight face mask. This way, you get the benefits of skincare rotation, which will keep your skin looking and feeling its healthiest!

If you do decide to use both my Magic Night Cream and Multi-Miracle Glow together, apply my Magic Night Cream first. Then, massage my Multi-Miracle Glow into your face as the last step in your research-powered night-time skincare ritual.

Now that you know all about the MAGICAL benefits of using overnight masks and night creams, you can make the most of your beauty sleep and wake up to skin that’s softer, smoother and more youthful looking!
