You cannot fail to spot some model on Instagram these days taking a selfie with a sheet mask on whilst relaxing before a big night out.
Sheet masks are the latest beauty product to come out of Korea, and are basically any kind of absorbent cloth or paper that has been infused with ingredients that aid skin recovery.
They come in many different varieties, including sheet masks that give skin a healthy glow, ones that boost skins’ natural properties, others firm up skin whilst some leave it looking glowing and youthful.
After choosing a sheet mask that fits your skin’s needs, the best way to buy a sheet mask is to buy a single one to test how it reacts and works with your skin, then once you have found a good sheet mask buy them in multi-packs as this gives better value.
To get the best out of your sheet mask you should pop them on for about 15-20 minutes, then take it off and massage any product left into your skin.
