What is a Facial Sheet Mask

What's behind the craze around facial sheet masks, and why you should be using them.  Find out what you should know about this new widely-popular skin care regiment.

WHAT IS A FACIAL SHEET MASK? 

Sheet masks are comprised of two basic elements, a face-shaped fabric sheet, and a nutrient-rich serum solution.  The sheet can be made up of different materials such as papers, fibers, gels, or rubbers; and the serum solutions differ depending on the end result goals such as hydrating, brightening, soothing, or rejuvenating.  Unlike other facial masks applied as paste, cream, or mud, that can over exfoliate and strip your natural healthy oils; sheet masks rely on absorption and are simply applied for a given time, removed and then the face is patted dry.  Sheet masks are generally single-use and individually packaged, for fast, convenient, and easy-to-use skin care.  

 

 HOW TO USE SHEET MASKS 

Sheet masks are a great addition to your skin care regiment and are super easy to use!  Apply it on a clean face starting from just above the eye, smooth mask over entire face, leave for 10 to 20 minutes while you're watching a movie, reading a book, taking care of life's little tasks, or just kick back and relax, when it's time gently remove the mask and pat your face to enhance the absorption of the remaining residue into your skin. Voila! Your skin will now look and feel fresher and healthier. 

 

...ON HOW OFTEN TO USE SHEET MASKS

Let your skin be your guide! Sheet masks are your easy access to in-home pamper sessions that beat commuting to the spa and the cost of a facial. We've found people typically use them 2-3 times a week, but if conditions like the dry winter call for additional hydration feel free to use them daily for extra care to ensure your skin looks and feels its healthiest.
