So, What Exactly Is A Sheet Mask, You Ask?
Sheet Mask is a thin sheet made up of different types of materials like cotton wool, coconut pulp, gel, microfibres, paper, cellulose, etc that are drenched in a variety of serums depending upon the type of skincare issue being treated. It is chiefly intended to moisturize, rejuvenate, and brighten the skin that’s in need of something more than what the standard CTM routine can provide.
It is primarily composed of water mostly to replicate the fundamental composition of the human body (i.e., water). Water works as the best carrier of ingredients and makes them more accessible for the skin. Unlike normal face masks, moisturisers or serums, a sheet mask forms a physical barrier that seals in the skin care ingredients present in the sheet, preventing them from evaporating.
Be it a sudden party or a date or just some extra pamper to your skin after a long and tiring day, if an elaborate skincare regime or rushing off to the parlour seems a bit too much for you, worry not, just put on a sheet mask. It might be just the thing your skin needs as it instantly relaxes the body, mind and makes your skin look fresh and rejuvenated in a jiffy.
