Guess what? You don’t need a spa to have a spa day!
If you’re in need of some pampering there’s quite a lot of things one can do at home. Starting with a mask. And while classic masks have been available for at home use since forever the last few years there’s a trend taking over this area: sheet masks.
Sheet masks are a South Korean invention as most true skincare and makeup innovations are. They are basically regular masks soaked up in a face shaped fabric that you simply put on.
Why are they better?
This has a number of benefits compared to regular masks:
- no dosage issues
- they come in individual packages which makes them stay fresh for longer
- they very rarely drip
- usually, no rinsing is required, the excess product is simply massaged into the skin once the cloth is removed
- and finally, the feeling is much more SPA like, like you’re being taken care of by someone 🙂
Since it’s summer I would recommend something hydrating (to counteract the drying effect of the sun), but cooling (well, for obvious reasons). Like the green tea sheet mask from Innisfree (below).
There are infinite options available for basically every possible skin concern. Here are my favorites:
- Sulwhasoo Snowise EX Brightening Mask (130$ for 10 sheets)
- SK-II Facial Treatment Mask (£60 for 10 sheets)
- The whole Tony Moly I’m Real Mask Sheet Pack (9.95$ for 10 sheets, one of each type)
- The face shop Real Nature Mask Sheet Blueberry (6.90$ per sheet)
- The whole Etude House I need you 20pcs set (28.98$ for 20 sheets)
- Dr. Jart+ Pore Minimalist Black Charcoal Sheet Mask (35$ for five sheets)
