Are caffeine sleep masks worth the hype?

A caffeine sleeping mask is a skin care mask that includes caffeine. This type of overnight face mask is typically infused and formulated with not only caffeine but a host of ingredients to help boost skin while you snooze.

Caffeine’s potent antioxidant properties help give “an even appearance to the skin’s surface,” says Akis Ntonos,  family nurse practitioner, cosmetic injector, and founder of Aion Aesthetics.
