Hydrating Sheet Masks To Try This Season
After Korean BB Creams took the Indian markets by storm, another latest import from Korea are the sheet masks. We all use lotions, creams & serums for our face, but most of us have not yet incorporated these masks into our skincare routine.
What Are Sheet Masks?
I am sure you must have seen a lot of celebrities taking their face sheet selfie. This lazy girlâ€™s facial has become a huge trend since. These are rich cream or serum-soaked hydrating masks which are highly effective in hydrating the undernourished skin. In addition, they are less messy and more convenient than the traditional masks. They blanket your face & infuse moisture into the skin & keep you well-hydrated.
What Do They Do?
These come in several variations that claim different results such as lifting, preventing acne, hiding fine lines, skin tightening, etc. but they are best used to boost hydration. Preferably go for a mask with Hyaluronic acid which is the primary ingredient to hydrate the skin.
A Word Of Caution!
These masks do not replace your traditional masks & serums. Although they infuse vitamins, amino acids, and minerals into the skin & are not drying, but they donâ€™t really cleanse or exfoliate deeply. Also, theyâ€™re not great for acne-prone skin especially in summers as these masks get hot due to the heat generated. It is always advisable to try a patch test first.
Now, Let us take a look at some sheet masks to try out to hydrate your skin this winter.
