Sheet masks are rapidly climbing up the trend ladder, they are incredibly popular! Sheet masks actually originated in Japan, by Geishas. Geishas would gather leftover silk pieces from their kimonos and soak them in flower water then place it on their faces as part of their skincare routine.
Sheet masks are incredible if you’re after that extra boost of hydration. Here are 5 other benefits when it comes to using sheet masks.
Since sheet masks are soaked in a potent serum, they can double up as a hydration booster and penetrate the skin even deeper. Having a sheet mask go from sitting in a potent serum to sitting on the skin, you’re guaranteed to have that extra boost of moisture that you need (especially in winter!)
Easy to Use
Unlike a normal mask, sheet masks are easy to use and a lot less messy! It’s perfect for hydration before applying makeup to go out or for a night in! You simply apply the mask for 10-15 minutes, remove it, massage the serum into the skin and let it seep in overnight!
Since there are so many different sheet masks, each mask will include specific serums that can help target your skin concerns. For example, sheet masks that include Hyaluronic Acid target anti-aging and dry skin. If your skin concern is aging and dryness, you’d look for a sheet mask with Hyaluronic Acid in it among other things.
Since sheet masks are so effective and easily accessible, they provide quick results! A 20-minute sheet mask is enough for the ingredients to penetrate the epidermis, leaving you skin soft and revitalised.
Treat for Your Skin
Not only is a sheet mask a great treat for your skin, it can also provide a sense of calmness for your body. Being able to pamper yourself from the comfort of your own home is a great treat not just for your skin but for your mental health as well. Taking time out of your day for a 20 minute pamper is almost essential!
