Of all the beauty products I love (and hoard), sheet masks rank high up among my favorites. They’re a convenient, quick and easy way to give my skin a little extra TLC (while catching up on my favorite Netflix shows!)
It feels so good to just slap on a sheet mask, sit back, relax, and let the skin-soothing formula soak into your skin. Not only are they super affordable, but also come in different options so you can choose one specifically for your skin’s needs.
Whether it’s for banishing breakouts, minimizing pores, or hydrating and brightening dull skin, there’s a sheet mask solution for every complexion concern!
In case you’re unfamiliar with a sheet mask, it is a thin piece of fiber cloth-like material that’s been saturated with a skincare solution or concentrated serum that delivers a range of beauty benefits. After taking it out of the foil packet, you simply unfold the mask and apply to fit the contours of your face (there are cut-outs for your eyes, nose and mouth).
Leave it on for 15-20 minutes and relax while the mask works its magic. After removing the face mask, gently massage the remaining serum into your skin. And you’re done—no need to rinse!
Perfect for mess-free masking whenever you have 15-30 minutes of downtime! I also like to follow up with a moisturizer to seal all the great ingredients from the sheet mask into my skin.
