THERE’S A MASK FOR EVERYONE
The beauty of sheet masks is that there are endless options for you to choose from, depending on your budget, skin type, scent preferences, and even penchant for cute designs (shout out to animal print sheet masks).
The Face Shop, Real Nature Sheet Masks
The Face Shop’s Real Nature Sheet Masks have 20 varieties, all of which are primarily made of natural ingredients. Aloe, Rice, Honey, and Green Tea are among the crowd favourites that you can try. If you're feeling more adventurous, you can go for Red Ginseng that gives your skin an instant lift or Lingzhi for a brighter complexion.
AS GOOD AS A FACIAL – IF YOU AIN’T GOT TIME FOR ONE
Everyday is a race against time. For times when you just can’t squeeze a facial appointment into your hectic schedule, apply a sheet mask before your bedtime may just be the next best thing. With sheet masks being a huge skincare trend, there are now countless OG skincare brands getting into the game in addition to the pioneering K-brands, which means more advanced and effective formulations.
Kiehl's, Instant Renewal Concentrate Mask
Kiehl’s Instant Renewal Concentrate Mask is one such product. It features a concentrated blend of cold-pressed Amazonian copaiba resin, pracaxi, and andiroba oils that nourishes your skin with omega six fatty-acids which are known to improve skin’s texture and hydration. The brand describes it as a mix between a biocellulose mask and a hydrogel mask, which means that all the ingredients are well-infused within the mask and therefore deliver more efficient results.
PROBLEMATIC SKIN – NO PROBLEM
Another reason to get into sheet masks is that there are now varieties targeting sensitive or problematic skin.
innisfree, My Real Squeeze Mask Ex in Manuka Honey
While you might be apprehensive to try sheet masks when your skin is very reactive to certain ingredients, brands like InnisFree have sheet masks that are formulated to be gentle on sensitive skin. Their My Real Squeeze Mask Ex in Manuka Honey is made from 10,000 ppm of honey extract, giving it anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, ideal for acne-prone skin. You can also do additional research or check with your dermatologist for advice on which ingredients to look out for when trying sheet masks!
SELF-CARE IS TOP PRIORITY
There’s no better way to spend your much needed me-time with a sheet mask, the Netflix show you’ve been binge-watching, and perhaps a glass (or two) of wine. While any sheet mask would be great for this occasion, some people like to reserve the best of their stash for it.
Guardian, Dr Jart+ Rubber Mask Moist Lover
In this case, try the Dr Jart+ Rubber Mask Moist Lover. While it looks like mask worthy of a horror-movie, the only shock you’ll get out of it is how it works wonders for the skin. Unlike most sheet masks, it has a rubbery material that’s made of algae that clings onto your face and lowers your skin’s temperature for a calming effect. The material is also meant to prevent the ingredients from evaporating, therefore ensuring deep penetration and maximum results.
