The Best Sleeping Masks That Will Have You Waking Up Glowing

A skin-care routine so easy, you can do it in your sleep


With all of the things you've got to plan and prep ahead of your big day, consider getting wedding-ready skin an easy one to check off of your to-do list: Thanks to these overnight masks, you can actually do it in your sleep.

An integral part of Korean skin care, "sleep masks" serve as the final step in your nighttime routine. They help seal in all of the nutrients from the skin-saving serums that make up the rest of your regimen and boost hydration so you'll wake up with the plump, dewy skin of your dreams. They should be used twice a week in place of your regular evening moisturizer and left on while you snooze. And no, they won't goop up your favorite pillows or make you look like The Mask when you get into bed.

These nine sleeping masks will work their magic while you're busy dreaming of walking down the aisle, which means you can dedicate waking hours to more important things—like picking out the perfect playlist and not offending anyone with your seating arrangements.
