Wake up to glowing, luminous skin with this new overnight facial mask, tried and tested by our favourite local personalities
Besides the obvious relaxation benefits, science has shown that sleep also improves skin’s brightness, plumpness and elasticity. So why not enhance your slumber by using an overnight face mask to rejuvenate your skin. Belle de Jour Dream Night Mask, a new multi-tasking sleeping mask by Kenzoki, works its magic while you rest. Not only does it deeply moisturise your skin, it also combats the signs of ageing. Two key ingredients – White Lotus flower and Belle de Nuit flower – make this mask an effective antiager. White Lotus extract repairs, protects and leaves the skin in a state of relaxation whereby the stress-induced hormone cortisol is reduced and beta-endorphins (the happy hormone) production is stimulated. Belle de Nuit extract repairs the skin from the harmful effects of daily aggressors such as UV rays, pollution and stress. What’s more, the mask has a soft, floral scent that calms the senses. All these factors make Belle de Jour Dream Night Mask the perfect companion for today’s busy modern woman. With this in mind, we got well known personalities with hectic lifestyles to try the mask and share their reviews.
Bella Koh, 35
Bella wears several hats. She’s a food stylist, runs Fleas & Trees Slowhouse, and is a new mum to a baby girl. Each week is different for her and so she plans her schedule carefully. To unwind after a busy day, she hangs out at home with her cats. She also enjoys the soothing effect of fresh flowers and always has them around the house to help her relax. She tried the mask before sleeping and said, “I love the scent of this mask. My face feels calm and revitalised after use. It’s really refreshing!”
Maddy Barber, 42
Radio DJ Maddy’s work day starts at 5am and usually ends only in the evening, so she’s ready to kick back with a warm drink in front of the TV once she gets home. She loved using the mask, “It’s great that I don’t have to clean it off. I just smooth it on, go to sleep and wake up to skin that feels baby soft.”
Cheryl Chio, 34
Cheryl holds a day job and runs her own beauty blog, so she’s constantly on the go. After a long day, she enjoys curling up with a good book but adds that a good night’s rest is as important. She tried the mask and loved that she “woke up to bouncier, more radiant skin.” She added, “Its texture is so soft and fluffy. I like that it glides onto the skin so easily.”
