1. What is a sheet mask?
Sheet masks are face-shaped sheet fabrics soaked in nutrition-packed solution called serum. The sheet is made up of variety of materials including papers, fibers or gel types. These sheet masks are different from facial masks (paste type) that you only need to apply, take off or pat in extra serum instead of washing the paste after applying and putting on other skincare products. Sheet mask is generally used once and it is individually packaged, making them fast, convenient, and easy to use.
2. How do I use sheet masks?
It’s very easy! Apply it on a clean face, leave for 20-30 minutes, take it off and enjoy! You can apply it as often as you want throughout the day or week. When you are busy and barely have time to rest, sheet masks are great because you can use them even when you’re cleaning, cooking, reading or watching TV. The good thing is that, you don’t have to bother washing it off after applying!
The sheets are one-size-fits-all, but since every face is not the same size or shape, it would be easier to start from the forehead and pat it softly as you come down to your face while lining up the holes for your eyes, nose and mouth. You can use sheet masks as many times as you want throughout the day or week, but many recommend using it three times a week or once a day for extra care.
3.Where did sheet mask originate from?
Sheet masks originated from South Korea, known for their dedication on cosmetics and skin care. Today, sheet masks are widely popular in Asia as a whole. Sheet masks are recently changing the beauty industry and gaining popularity in the U.S by seeing various celebrities utilize sheet masks and post about it on their social media. From the recent study conduct by NPD Group in the USA, the sale of masks increased about 60%, overwhelming other categories in the skincare business.
4.How does sheet mask work?
There is a sheet fully soaked with concentrated serum, which consist of many beneficial ingredients to the skin such as hyaluronic acid and vitamins. These ingredients are in water phase as dissolved. The sheet prevents quick evaporation of water phase and extends the time frame the ingredients require to penetrate deep into the skin. This result in the sheet masks outperforming the effects of the traditional serum-type skincare even when applied once.
5. What are the Benefits?
They bring fast effects in regards to enhancing the skin. The serum is filled with various vitamins and minerals, and won’t dry out the skin compared to the paste-type face mask. The sheet on your face helps the serum to soak in your skin a little longer. Some of the sheets also claim to brighten and make your skin firm. Basically, sheet masks are inexpensive compared to going to a spa, convenient, easy to apply, and brings glowing effect on your skin.
6. Is it important to choose sheet mask after skin type?
Yes, our skin has different kind of needs. Some of us has dry skin and need formulas that are made for that particular type. Oily skin has their own need and is therefore better off with products designed for that.
7. What materials are the sheet mask´s made of?
Diverse types of fabric are used for the sheet masks. Four most used materials from worst to best:
*Non-woven fiber – Inexpensive, difficult mobility, low capacity to deliver serum into the skin
*Cottons – Inexpensive, difficult mobility, low capacity to deliver serum into the skin (but better than the non-woven fiber)
*Hydrogel – Little pricey, great absorption system, gel-type consistency, two separate parts (top and bottom) to apply on face, difficult mobility, fits the shape of the face well
*Bio cellulose – Expensive, all-natural material, adheres to the skin well, better absorption properties, comfortable mobility.
