Sheet masks are have gained popularity in India and are now available at many stores. Brands like The face shop, Innisfree have launched their range online and stores in cities like Delhi and Mumbai. They are easily available at websites like Nykaa etc.
Sheet masks are Korean skin care products which have very good benefits and instant effects on the skin. They are now also trending in U.S and other countries due to their miraculous results on the skin like skin softening, firming etc. Sheet masking is an inexpensive way to treat yourself for common skin problems like dehydration, acne etc. They provide deep hydration to your skin making it soft, supple and glowing.
They are face shaped sheets made up of cotton fiber called microfibers. sometimes, from jelly-like materials called hydrogel. They are soaked in essence containing nourishing active ingredients like hyaluronic acid and vitamins. This concentrated essence is known as serum. these serums come from many commonly used ingredients like cucumber, green tea, aloe etc. These sheet masks are different from paste masks as there is no need to wash off instead, they are one-time use masks that you only need to apply and take it off. there are not supposed to re-use.
HOW TO USE?
One of the reasons why sheet masks came into the trend is due to their easy application. All you need is to pick a mask for your skin type and skin problem, apply it on a clean face, chill around for 20-30 mins and take it off! yeah, its that simple. You don’t have to handle the mess of mixing, washing etc. U can sit and watch tv or sip some detox water until mask works on your skin. Do not wait until it dries.
Apply it for 30 mins max, allowing it to stay for long will not give you extra benefits. instead, a reverse action will take place i.e it will start to take back present moisture from the skin. Do not wash your face after removing the sheet. Pat or massage the serum into your skin and follow your regular skincare routine.
TIP:- For perfect application start applying from the forehead.
You don’t need to follow a particular routine to apply sheet mask. You can apply them whenever you feel like. To achieve maximum results you can add it to your night skincare. As your skin gets enough time to absorb the serum.
One of the most common skincare routines you can follow for skin care is
CLEANSE -> TONE -> SHEET MASK -> MOISTURIZE
Usually applying once or twice a week would be enough. But there is this trend going on called A MASK A DAY. Where people are applying a mask every day for a week to see visible results on the skin. I will be doing a separate post on it in which I am going to talk about it in depth.
sheet masks are not a replacement for facemasks. sheet masks are less messy making them travel friendly, that doesn’t mean sheet masks have the same benefits of a facemask.
THE FACE SHOP SHEET MASKS
I recently laid my hands on the face shop sheet masks. they have a huge range of sheet masks divided into two categories. The solution masks and the real nature masks.
The solution masks are ideal for problematic skin and are thinner than real nature masks. retails for:- 150/- INR each
The real nature masks contain properties of natural ingredients like kelp, aloe, avacado, shea butter, lemon etc. retails for:- 100/- INR each
I have heard a lot about these masks and thought to give it a try.They are easily available online. I got them from Nykaa. they are having this amazing offer of buy 7 and get 7 free on their website. I will be doing a review on it very soon.
So pamper your skin this festive seasons with this amazing beauty product for instant hydration.
