Overnight Masking 101: Find the Right Overnight Mask for YOU
With three distinct Overnight Masks in PURA’s core skincare collection, we tend to get many questions about these best-selling potions. After all, who wouldn’t love a skincare product that goes to work the second you get off your feet? Keep reading to learn more about our Signature Overnight Mask Collection and which mask would be best for your unique skin and lifestyle.
The Overnight Mask Collection was initially created by our founder, Lane, because she was a busy mother with three young children. For her, most skincare masks on the market were not practical for her lifestyle and did not fully quench and rejuvenate her skin. Since most skin regeneration occurs while we sleep, Lane formulated several overnight masks that feed your skin with revitalizing vitamins, amino acids, anti-oxidents, and phyto-nutrients so you can wake up with a glowing complexion.
Overnight Watermelon Mask - Best for Dry Skin
Our Overnight Watermelon Mask is known as the “gateway potion to PURA”. Featured in multiple publications such as The Globe & Mail and Hello! Canada, this soft pink concoction is one of our most talked about treatments.
Watermelon extract itself is luxuriously hydrating and bursting with antioxidants such as lycopene and vitamins A & C. Lycopene protects against damage to your skin’s DNA caused by UV-photo damage. Vitamins A & C sweep away dead skin cells, allowing for cell renewal as well as boosting collagen production and elastin formation which helps to brighten dull skin. Ultra-healing neroli has antimicrobial and antibacterial properties that keep the skin balanced and acne free. Aloe Vera, chamomile and witch hazel soothe and nourish the skin leaving you with a glowing complexion. Even though this is known as an ‘overnight’ potion, it can be used under make-up as a day cream or as a moisture barrier against the elements while participating in outdoor activities, especially in the winter.
Overnight Garden Mask - Best for Acne-Prone Skin
This powerhouse mask is ideal for those with sensitive, oily and acne prone skin. Antibacterial tea tree oil, organic rosemary and sweet basil purify your skin while cold-pressed avocado oil hydrates the skin and combats blemishes. Cooling cucumber tightens and softens the skin while reducing inflammation. Spirulina lends its intense green color to this mask and contains high levels of tyrosine and selenium which reduce free radicals and slow down the skin’s aging process. Antioxidant raspberry seed oil stimulates cell repair and protects the skin from UV damage while providing long lasting moisture to the deepest layers of the skin. This mask strikes the perfect balance of combating blemishes, hydrating the skin, and all the while restoring natural radiance.
Overnight Mango Mask - Best for Mature Skin
Bursting with antioxidants and collagen boosting vitamins, this mask is a refreshing and rejuvenating treat for mature skin. Mango and guava are both rich in Vitamins A and C that naturally exfoliate the skin by gently sloughing away dead skin cells. Sea buckthorn extract has rich concentrations of Vitamin E, amino acids and phytonutrients that repair the skin and combat fine lines. Squalane oil and sea buckthorn extract protect the skin against free radicals that cause premature aging and help reverse the effects of environmental damage that cause dark spots. Rejuvenating helichrysum oil aids in preserving the skin and works alongside aloe vera juice to reduce redness. Antiseptic bergamot oil works to decongest your pores and balance the skin’s pH.
Depending on what your skin is craving, you can use all three signature masks on different areas of your face (check out our Mini Overnight Mask Trio). For instance, you can apply the Garden Mask on blemishes and your t-zone, the Watermelon Mask on areas that need more hydration, and the Mango Mask on fine lines around your lips and on your forehead. Your ritual is as unique as your skin, so feel free to experiment with different ways to use these masks while you sleep, work, and play. We hope you love your no-fuss Signature Overnight Masks as much as we do!
