Facial sheet masks are gaining popularity in the United States, but they’ve been a beauty standard for years in other parts of the world. And skin care experts and product junkies in the US are finally realizing why these facial sheet masks have been so popular in other countries for so long: they work!
We’ve likely all had some experience with a clay mask, or some sort of mask that needs to be rubbed or peeled off. And these types of masks do have their place. But when it comes to moisturizing, anti-aging, antioxidants, and just plain pampering your skin, a sheet mask is the way to go.
Benefits of a sheet mask
A sheet mask is convenient
While with clay masks it’s necessary to apply a product all over your skin, and try not to move your face while it dries, a good quality sheet mask is easy in comparison. Simply remove the mask from the pouch, peel off the protective layer(s), and apply to the face. There are already holes cut for eyes, nose, and mouth, and other cuts so the mask will fit to the contours of your face.
A sheet mask is neat and tidy
With a sheet mask, there is no need to worry about getting the product in your hair (eyebrows included). And you don’t need to wash your hands after application. If you have moisture from the mask on your hands, simply rub it into your skin – no need to waste any of it. Plus, when you’re done with the mask, there’s nothing to wash off.
Smile away in a sheet mask!
There is no need to remain expressionless while wearing a sheet mask. Some clay masks will crack or start to “lift” off the skin if you smile or laugh (or do much of anything) while wearing them. A quality sheet mask, like Bel Mondo’s Bio Cellulose Facial Sheet Mask, will remain in place while you smile, laugh, talk on the phone – whatever you choose to do. Of course, one of the benefits of a sheet mask is the “spa-like” pampering quality, so it’s also nice if you can sit back and relax while wearing it.
A sheet mask offers continued benefits
With a clay mask, once you peel or rub it off, it’s done its job. With a sheet mask, any fluid left after removing the mask itself can be rubbed into the skin. And in most cases, there is additional fluid in the pouch that can be used regularly until it’s all gone.
A sheet mask is hygienic
Each sheet mask is used once, then thrown away. With traditional clay masks, you are using the same tube or jar of product over and over again, which leaves the product open to bacteria. Especially when you are reaching into a jar repeatedly to apply the product.
Sheet masks are great for travel
A facial sheet mask is an amazing travel companion, especially when you have limited luggage space. The sheet masks are individually wrapped, so you can take as many as you need. They can be great for rehydrating your skin – especially after air travel, where the air inside the plane can be incredibly dry. Plus, sheet masks can be tucked inside your carry-on luggage.
