Harper's Bazaar (UK) Logo By Katie Withington of Harper's Bazaar (UK) | Slide 1 of 11: Scentscaping your home with an opulent candle, reclining into an aromatic bubble bath, curling up with a warming cup of herbal tea... Some self-care rituals feel their most luxurious when partaken in colder seasons. The turn of October, alongside recent temperature decline, has sadly evidenced the end of this year's sunshine; the cooler weather, in turn, marking a shift in many of our skincare regimes.Bracing for the effects of seasonal change, the Bazaar beauty team has begun its annual purge of feather-light gel crèmes in favour of rich replenishing moisturisers. While SPF is still very much at the forefront of our beauty routines (yes, even in winter), other chillier environment influences come into play, cueing a search for new barrier-boosting ingredients that can hold their own against depleting humidity levels, increased sensitivity and periodic dryness. And, for an evening enhanced by a warming scents and aromatherapeutic bath oils, the luxe and transformative overnight mask takes skincare centre stage. At the core of the night cream versus face mask Venn diagram, is the overnight mask. A restoring skincare hybrid, the overnight mask claims all the benefits of a deeply hydrating moisturiser but accompanied by clever active ingredients and targeted solutions."The skin uses night-time to repair itself, reversing all the damage that was caused by sun exposure, stress and pollution during the day," says River Aesthetics co-founder, Dr Victoria Manning. "At night the skin cells regenerate fastest due to increased blood flow to the skin and skin’s permeability is highest, maximising absorption of potent ingredients such as retinol."Dr Manning advises using a leave-on overnight mask two-to-three times a week to transform your skin's overall health, hydration, and appearance. "Specialised ingredients soak into the skin over eight-to-10 hours to help support cell regeneration and boost elasticity for smoother, firmer skin. It makes sleeping-in more appealing!" Here we round-up the best vegan overnight skincare masks to ensure you wake up to brighter, clearer skin. The best overnight skincare masks for every skin type
