Your Guide To Sheet Masks: How To Choose The Right Sheet Mask For You?

Pre-soaked in skincare-loving ingredients, sheet masks press them onto the skin for 10-20 minutes (depending on the instructions) to penetrate deep below the skin’s surface, but you want to make sure you’re smothering your skin in the right ingredients for your needs. Here are 3 of the most common skin concerns and sheet masks that’ll solve them. Your best face is only a sheet mask away…

For Anti-Ageing

Sheet masks are ideal for anti-ageing as you don’t have to do much to the skin for them to work. The more your skin moves, the more likely fine lines and wrinkles will form. Simply place an anti-ageing sheet mask on your skin and let it soak into its deeper layers without lifting a finger. And remember, if you have leftover serum on your face after you remove the sheet mask, lightly press it into the skin, don’t rub. Never rub.

Plus, it repairs the skin and treats hyperpigmentation and acne scars, all helping to reduce the signs of ageing.
