Except overnight mask, do you put a mask on your face over night?

I do when I use the Dr Hauschka Rejuvenating Mask.

It depends on the mask, I guess. Some masks dry quickly so it would be hard to leave them on your face even more than 10 minutes. But for some hydration masks, I sometimes do leave them overnight.

With clay masks I sometimes re moisten them and leave on for a second round especially if I haven't used it for a bit but it is probably better to just use it as directed and more frequently. I also leave the Dr H Rejuvenating Mask on longer or overnight and the Naturopathica Seaweed Calming Mask on overnight. The Jurlique Nurturing Mask after it's usual time I moisten it a bit and kind of reapply it to my face and down onto my chest(kind of hate to waste it!)

I usually follow the instruction time indicated on the products. I have never left any mask on overnight yet - worry about wake up with some nasty surprises.

Except overnight mask, it is better to leave mask on your face less than 20 minutes,or it may make your face skin lose water.

I can't feel a thing if it's under 20 minutes, so I chose 20-30 minutes.

I used it overnight and it makes my skin "glow" the next day. It has a sort-of eucalyptus scent.

I use those sheet masks from Asian brands and usually I would put them on for a minimum of 20 minutes. They recommend that you shouldnt rinse off the essence but after massaging it into my skin, I always rinse it off.
For clay based masks, I usually spot treat certain areas on my face and on individual pimples for up to 30 minutes.
