3 Homemade Overnight Face Masks for Glowing Skin

Ever felt like the day’s work is keeping you from your well-deserved beauty sleep? For nights like these, we love mixing up a quick all night mask to help us relax before falling asleep on our wrinkle-protecting vegan silk beddings.

In general, humans have an average of up to 40 layers of skin that trap dirt and bacteria from our daily activities. In order to get the most out of your #bamboobeautysleep, we suggest taking some time off this weekend to pamper your skin before bed with any one of these easy homemade facial recipes.


#1. Oats & Honey Face Mask (All Skin Types)

– 2 Teaspoons Oats

– 2 Teaspoons Honey

Mix oats and honey, leave the mixture to rest for 5 minutes until the oats soften. Then, mash the oats and mix well before applying an even layer on your face. Leave the mask on overnight as it will work to replenish moisture and repair your skin from damage done by daily exposure to free radicals while you sleep.

* Note : Cover your pillow with a towel as the mixture might get on your sheets during the night.


#2. Lemon & Milk Cream Face Mask (Dry – Normal Skin)

– 1 Teaspoon Dairy Cream

– 1/4 Teaspoon Lemon Juice

Mix cream and lemon juice well before applying an even layer of the mixture on your face. Leave the mask on overnight and wash it off with warm water the next morning. As cream contains natural fatty acids, it helps to deeply moisturize your skin while the lemon juice helps to tone and lighten your complexion, as well as aid in fading minor facial scars if used regularly.


#3. Hemp Milk Face Mask (Oily Skin)

– 2 Teaspoons Hemp Milk

– 2 – 3 Drops Lavender / Sandalwood Oil

– 1 Cotton Ball

Mix hemp milk with your preferred oil, and apply the solution after washing your face thoroughly. Using the cotton ball dipped into the hemp milk solution, gently massage your face and leave the solution on overnight. You may choose to wash it off in the morning, or when the solution is completely dried before you sleep. This mask can be used daily as milk is a natural oil-free cleanser that helps to reduce the accumulation of oil and sebum in the skin.

* Note : If oily skin occurs only in T-zone areas, you may wish to repeat this procedure on T-zone areas 2 or 3 times a day.

Pro Tip: Good Night Sleep.

Have you ever noticed that when you don’t get much sleep, you look less vibrant and little older? That is because your body needs deep relaxation to combat inflammation and restore its natural state. Try a thermo-regulating sheet set to help you sleep better and notice the difference for yourself.

      Thanks for you message! You only need to add a couple of drops of the sandalwood or lavender oil to the other ingredients which should dilute it. If you want to add a different oil definitely check to see if there are any health warnings and follow instructions to dilute if necessary. If you are unsure test on a small patch of skin on your arm before you put the formula on your face. Thanks!
