From Hollywood stars to your next-door neighbour, many have been raving about sheet masks. Portraits of sheet mask fans wearing this beauty essential have taken over social media and new versions seem to pop up all the time. But what are sheet masks and should you add them to your skincare routine?
Sheet masks are thin sheets of fabric conveniently shaped like a face with holes cut out for your eyes, nostrils and mouth, making them easy to use – just take them out of their packaging and put them on your face.
Sheet masks originated from Japan and South Korea but are now widely used all over the world. That’s a lot of disposable fabric but thankfully, many sheet masks are now made using biodegradable materials that do not harm the environment and are safe and gentle on the skin.
Soaked with concentrated serum, sheet masks give your skin a rush of hydration and nutrients thanks to ingredients like vitamins and phytonutrients. This makes sheet masks a great option for intense focus on one skin concern at a time. To address multiple concerns, you can use regular face masks or different sheet masks on different days.
Anyone in need of a quick hydration boost. You don’t need a lot of time as sheet masks can be worn while going about your day. Read, cook, check your emails, anything – just don’t mask and drive.
Sheet masks are best used at night so that the active ingredients can work while you sleep but you can use them any time of day. Keep them in the fridge first for a nice cooling effect.
Too short a time and your skin will not have soaked up all the goodness from your sheet mask. But left on for too long, the sheet mask will start to dry up, taking all the hydration with it and leaving your skin dry. Do not allow the mask to dry on your face.
Containing the same Dendrobium Nobile Extract that made the original essentials by ARTISTRY Sheet Masks a hydrating success, the new Vitamin Sheet Masks are infused with a double essence of vitamins and phytonutrients to hydrate, refine, nourish and brighten your complexion.
