K-beauty is a rapidly growing phenomenon worldwide, with the Korean skincare regime and beauty products gaining quite a bit of attention. The firm and dewy skin that Koreans possess is desired by many, and several people are now starting to follow the classic 10-step Korean skincare routine to achieve it.
It includes double cleansing, hydration, exfoliation, moisturization, and more. Masks are an essential part of this routine, especially sheet masks. From Kpop idols to regular high school students, everyone uses sheet masks regularly in Korea because of their skin refreshing properties.
History of Sheet Masks
Masks have a diverse history dating 5000 years to the Indian Ayurvedic turmeric mask. Clay masks were also very popular during the reign of Cleopatra and are associated with her immortal beauty. Ancient China and Rome started incorporating ingredients like pearls, herbs, and even exotic ones like placentas and animal stools to create the perfect face mask.
Parisian women first discovered sheet masks in the 19 th century as they used slices of beef on their faces to avoid fine lines and wrinkles. They soon replaced these with masks made of cotton and other cloth.
Korea is primarily responsible for popularizing sheet masks worldwide by making them a part of their regular skincare routine. These masks are gel-like in consistency, packed with serum, and infused with vitamins, fruit extract, seaweed, aloe vera, chamomile, and more.
What Can Sheet Masks Do for Your Skin?
Sheet masks offer a variety of benefits for every skin type. Whether you have dry skin, oily skin, or sensitive skin, you can easily find one suitable for you.
Sheet masks have hydrating properties which help lock moisture in your skin and get rid of dryness. They also improve the quality of your skin, removing dullness and giving a dewy, glowing complexion.
They are safe to use as they’re mostly made up of all-natural ingredients and are easy to apply and dispose of, unlike cream masks which can be quite messy. Sheet masks are also pocket-friendly and available with various components and brands.
How to Use a Sheet Mask
Sheet masks are commonly made of flexible papers, cellulose, or fabrics like cotton wool. They are soaked in serum and have holes cut out for the eyes and lips, making them easy to put on your face and relax as you wait for the mask to work its magic.
It is recommended to leave the mask on for 20-30 minutes and use it regularly, at least 2-3 times a week, depending on your skin type. Pat your skin dry off the excess liquid after taking the mask off, and wow at how supple and glowing it feels.
The best time to use a sheet mask is after doing your nighttime skincare routine and following it up with some moisturizer. Use creamy and rich sheet masks at night so the nutrients in the mask can infuse into your skin overnight. Sheet masks are also not reusable and should be thrown away after one-time use.
