When you think of facial masks, you often think of clay based masks, whether it’s a cheap and cheerful chocolate mud pack or an organic white clay purifying pot. Face masks have been used for centuries but have also developed with the times. One of the latest skincare trends hitting the beauty aisle are sheet masks, modern face treatments that are soaked into an accompanying face shaped sheet – it literally looks like a physical mask for your face.
Sheet masks work by holding the formula against your face and acting as a second skin to avoid the treatment evaporating or being wiped off. This allows the ingredients in the mask formula to be better absorbed and to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin before working the magic. Leave the sheet mask on for 15-25 minutes for improved, heathier looking skin.
Like the vast array of cleansers, moisturisers and serums out there, there’s a different sheet mask depending on your skin type and your skin concern. Some formulas will be more hydrating and some will focus on brightening – some even take the shape of tigers and pandas! Take a look at our top picks and find the best one for your face.
