Expert’s Answers For Readers’ Questions

Can you leave a face mask on overnight?

If the overnight mask you are using is DIY and made with natural ingredients, it should be okay to leave it on overnight. Store-bought, chemical-based or overnight packs that are meant for night time routines might irritate if left on for an extended period. So, clean it up before you hit the sack and let sleep bring the best out of it.
Also, some of the masks mentioned can be a little messy and gross (like those containing bananas, honey, oatmeal, etc.). Some might even have an overpowering smell while others can be sticky and uncomfortable. In that case, rinse the mask off before you sleep – but this is a personal choice.
