It’s a well-documented fact that sleep – albeit quality sleep – deeply impacts the condition of our skin.

Not only does it affect adjacent bodily functions like hormones and digestion, but it affords our skin a chance to repair itself without the pressure of external assaults (think UV radiation and pollution).

That’s why evening skincare should aim to nourish, repair and renew – the term ‘beauty sleep’ wasn’t coined for no reason.

The Emma Lewisham Supernatural Sleep Mask was formulated based on these principles. The new launch contains 22 natural active ingredients all selected as they support the skin’s nocturnal activity, ensuring you wake up brighter, bouncier and more hydrated. One key inclusion is Gardenia Jasminoides, a botanical that actually binds to the skin’s melatonin receptors, working to trigger cellular restoration and rejuvenation while you snooze. There’s also squalane, ceramides and saccharide isomerate to nourish the skin barrier, while an extremely gentle cocktail of alpha and beta hydroxy acids deliver a brightening effect.

The effect is skin that’s bright, plump, cared-for and baby soft. The melting texture immediately comforts and soothes, while the other ingredients work over the course of the evening to boost complexion health on a deeper level.

Like the rest of the Emma Lewisham Brand, the Supernatural Sleeping Mask is also made using scientifically-proven plant ingredients, and comes housed in refillable packaging. The brand is also B Corp certified, certified carbon positive, and provides a complimentary take-back initiative should you find yourself with an empty.

The campaign is fronted by Lara Worthington who, with her immaculate but still natural-looking complexion, couldn’t be more perfect. Worthington is also a long-time brand fan, and has shared her love for Skin Reset serum on Instagram before.

While every launch from the New Zealand beauty pioneer is exciting, Supernatural Sleeping Mask might just be our favourite yet. If you’re looking to brighten, nourish, soften and repaid damaged or tired skin, it’s the perfect twice-weekly treatment (just slather on in place of your regular night cream).
