You may have noticed a slew of sheet mask selfies popping up on social media and wondered what all the fuss was about. Sure, sheet masks can make you look a little silly when you wear them, but can they be beneficial for your skin?
Sheet masks can provide a concentrated dose of active ingredients to support beautiful skin all in one convenient single-use mask.
We will look at the benefits of using a sheet mask and why you may want to consider adding them to your beauty regimen.
If you have not yet tried a sheet mask, here are seven reasons you should.
- Sheet masks contain potent doses of active ingredients. The fiber of sheet masks is infused with serum, so you get all the nutrient-packed benefits of a serum in each sheet mask.
- Sheet masks hold nourishing ingredients onto your skin for longer. Since the mask ingredients are infused in the fabric, the ingredients are held close to your skin while you are wearing them. Unlike other types of facial masks, the ingredients will not evaporate since the fabric serves as an insulating layer.
- Sheet masks keep your skin moist for the duration of the treatment. As mentioned above, the fabric of the sheet mask will keep the serum on your skin during the treatment, keeping it moisturized.
- Sheet masks feel cooling and soothing on the skin. After a hot day or an intense workout, nothing feels better on your skin than the cooling effect of a sheet mask. Hydrate your body from the inside with a glass of coconut water while you hydrate on the outside with a moisturizing sheet mask.
- Sheet masks are hygienic. Since sheet masks are one-time use and are most often individually packaged, there is no risk of contamination. With other masks, you may be putting your fingers, a brush, or another spreading tool into the container repeatedly which can make it more challenging to keep the formula clean and free of bacteria. This is especially helpful when you want to enjoy a home spa day with friends.
- Sheet masks are convenient. Most sheet masks come individually packaged so you can easily toss one in your bag for travel. You do not need to sacrifice your full beauty routine just because you are on vacation. If you are traveling to a destination with higher temperatures, you will really appreciate the cooling effect of a sheet mask when you settle in for the evening.
- Sheet masks allow you maximum flexibility. If you like to change things up often, you will enjoy the flexibility that sheet masks provide. Since these masks are individually packaged, you can purchase as many different types as you like and use a different formula each time without worrying about the product losing efficacy after it has been opened, which can happen with other masks in a jar or tube. Most facial products have expiration dates that let you know when a product may become less effective. Since your sheet mask will stay safely sealed in its packet until you tear it open for one-time use, this will be less of a concern.
