Sheet Masks are trending all over the world. This Korean beauty trend has taken the world by storm, and why not, they are almost like getting a mini facial at home! They provide an intense boost of hydration and are cheaper than the usual masks. We decided to do our own research and bring to you what we learned 🙂
What is a sheet mask?
Sheet masks are face-shaped sheet fabrics soaked in a nutrition-packed solution called serum. The sheet is made up of a variety of materials.
What is the difference between face masks and sheet masks?
Sheet masks are different from facial masks (paste type) in their method of application. With sheet masks you only need to apply, take off or pat in extra serum instead of washing the paste after applying and putting on other skincare products. Sheet masks are generally for one time use and are individually packaged, making them fast, convenient, and very easy to use.
How often are you supposed to be using them?
Once/twice a week. They are meant to be a luxury, and not supposed to be for everyday use.They often come in many varieties- anti wrinkle, collagen boosting, skin brightening etc but they usually just help in hydration.
Cons of sheet masks:
- They are not great for acne prone skin. If you have acne-prone or oily skin, we suggest you do a patch test first.
- Although these masks are one-size-fits-all, but not every face is the same size or even the same shape. Which makes masking a bit tricky.
Benefits of sheet masks:
- Sheet Masks are super portable and provide a boost of hydration on the go.
- They are super clean and so easy to use!. Unlike traditional masks that require you to wash your hands (and even your hair) after application, you can just tap these masks on and go. After you remove the sheet, you can even leave the serum on as your moisturizer for the day.
