Sheet masks are one of the beauty trends that have taken the world by storm. Originally from South Korean, sheet masks are slowly becoming a beauty staple all over. More and more brands are choosing to come out with their range of sheet masks that provide their range of benefits. But what exactly are these sheet masks and how do they work? We are here to give you the scoop on this trend, and why so many people are adopting this into their cleansing and moisturizing routines.
Sheet masks are literally what the name suggests, a sheet that is worn as a mask over your face. These sheet masks are usually doused in a heavy concentration of serum that is meant to give your skin the nourishment and moisturization that it needs to stay healthy. These masks contain a range of beneficial additives and natural essences to nourish your skin on a deeper level.
How Do You Use A Sheet Masks?
Using a sheet masks is one of the easiest tasks, which is probably why so many people are opting to go in for these. Usually, sheet masks come in a single serving packet. Be sure to wash your face and pat it dry before you apply your masks. Open your package and carefully place the mask over your face. Keep the mask on for 25-30 minutes. You can do almost anything while having the mask on since it doesn’t drip or fall off easily. The serum makes the mask stick onto your face, so you don’t necessarily need to lie down or sit when it is on your face. Removing the mask is as simple as putting it on. Remove the sheet and pat your face. If there is any serum left on your face, you can massage it in or let it sit on your face. This is the good stuff that your face needs, so removing it with a towel or washing it off would make it go to waste.
Is A Sheet Mask Effective?
From personal experience, as well as reviews from people online, sheet masks do in fact work, but only for a short period. Ideally, sheet masks should be used either once or twice a week, but the ‘one sheet mask a day’ challenge has got us thinking differently. The effects of a sheet mask can stay on for up to three days. This depends on the kind of sheet masks that you are using of course.
