What are sheet masks and why is everyone raving about them?

Call it a trend or craze, sheet masks have become more and more popular. Originated from Asia and now available worldwide, they consist of a thin face shaped sheet soaked in a highly concentrated dose of an essence designed to nourish, brighten, moisturize and even treat fine lines.

 

 

The sheet is made up of a variety of materials:

*Non-woven fiber: It's inexpensive but has low capacity to deliver serum into the skin.                                        
*Cottons: Also inexpensive with a low capacity to deliver serum into the skin but cotton is kinder to the skin.
*Cupro: It's a high quality cotton harvested from cotton linter which is has the softest fibers, perfect for the most sensitive skin types. It's also a low irritant, eco-friendly and biodegradable plant fiber. It can hold up to ten times more essence than a regular cotton sheet mask and completely infuses the ingredients deeply into the skin.
*Hydrogel: It has a great absorption system with a gel-type consistency and comes in two separate parts (top and bottom) to apply on face.
*Bio cellulose: It is the best kind of sheet mask as it's made from all-natural material but are a bit more pricey, it adheres to the skin well and have great absorption properties.
Always check that you choose a high quality cotton that isn't bleached. The material of the sheet mask is equally as important as the serum its drenched in.
How to use a sheet mask?
Sheet mask is meant to be used once and is individually packaged which make them super convenient to use.
1) WASH
It's very important to apply the sheet mask on a cleansed and toned face. Sheet masks are infused with serums designed to penetrate the skin efficiently so if you haven't properly cleansed, your face will have layers of oils, dead skin cells, dirt and other daily pollutants which will make it impossible for the skin to absorb all the nourishing goodness of the sheet masks.

2) CAREFULLY REMOVE MASK from packet.

3) PLACE ON YOUR FACE adjusting it around the eyes, mouth and nose. There is a cutout for the nose which will allow you to breath.

4) USE THE EXTRA ESSENCE Make use all of the goodness and apply the remaining serum left in packet in your neck, chest, hands etc

5) RELAX

Longer isn't better. While it's tempting to leave the sheet mask on for longer, as it dries out, the sheet mask will start sucking moisture out of your skin which is the opposite of what you want to do. 20 minutes should be the maximum of time enough for it to efficiently infuse the skin with its ingredients.

6) REMOVE and gently pat the remaining serum into your skin to help absorption. To lock in all the moisture, follow with your moisturizer.
