KOREAN SHEET MASK 101
Here’s the Korean Sheet Mask 101 – for everything you need to know about the face masks taking over beauty cabinets around the world!
LOCK IN HYDRATION
Sheet masks work by creating an “occlusive barrier” that seals the ingredients in the mask into your skin. They offer hydration and a variety of skin-boosting benefits in a targeted 30 minute treatment.
Whether you’re travelling long distance, sitting in an air-conditioned or heated office, or just generally suffering from lacklustre skin, regular sheet masking helps boost the texture, hydration and tone of your skin.
EVERYONE CAN USE THEM
No matter your skin type or skin troubles, there is a sheet mask just for you.
- Dry skin loves sheet masks soaked in propolis and honey
- Acne prone skin can benefit from tea tree
- Ageing skin loves collagen
- Dehydrated skin works well with hyaluronic acid.
There are even sheet masks for your feet and hands!
CHEAPER AND MORE CONVENIENT THAN A DERMATOLOGIST
Sheet masks are awesome because they actually work! They are also super convenient. Packed with just the right amount of product for a single treatment, you can use them wherever and whenever you like.
You can’t use sheet masks too often either – the current trend in Korea is to use “a pack a day” (a sheet mask pack, that is!) Best of all, they’re affordable enough that you can actually mask everyday without going broke.
