If you’ve never tried a Sheet Mask, now is the perfect time to get into the habit. Sheet Masks have all but taken over the skincare market, and there’s a good reason for that. They’re effective, easy to use and most are very cost effective also. I’ve added them permanently to my skincare routine, especially now that we’re into Fall season. This is the perfect time to amp up your skincare routine with one of these handy masks.
Sheet Masks are basically fabrics saturated with serums.
That’s the easiest way I know to describe what a sheet mask actually is. The ingredients differ, as do the price ( some can be super expensive, others fairly cheap ), and so do the fibers that the masks are made out of.
Also, sheet masks are sealed in individual packages and are ready for use right upon opening. Not only is this easier to deal with than brushes and mud masks all over the place ( have you ever washed off a clay mask? It’s a total mess and doozie to clean ), but you can also use the leftover serum in the package on your neck and chest area.
These handy masks are usually made with either non-woven fibers or are gel based.
Non-woven fiber sheets are the predominant style on the marketplace today. This is because they are the easiest to manufacture and also are among the cheapest. The average person isn’t really willing to spend a lot of money for a sheet mask on their first go-around. I know I wasn’t. I wanted to make sure it was worth the hype. Now that I’m more educated on the subject, I’m more willing to put down a little more money for different kinds of masks.
Sheet masks can consist of Non-woven fibers, Cottons, Hydrogel and Bio-Cellulose . Hydrogel and Bio-Cellulose are usually the more expensive options on the spectrum.
Sheet masks have different ingredients than other types of masks.
These utilize very thin fibers, so they’re not going to be clay and fruit based. Nor will they be really heavy, either ( normally ). Sheet masks are primarily serum based and tend to have clear, gooey, thick serum based active ingredients.
After using a sheet mask, your skin is going to feel a lot different and overall more refreshed, because the ingredients are working themselves into the skin. With other types of masks, you apply the product, let it sit for a while and then wash it off. Sheet mask serums aren’t washed off after the fiber mask is removed and discarded. In fact, you will want to massage the remaining serum into your skin to get the maximum effect.
Evoluderm has a great line of sheet masks that are very budget friendly and effective.
