As a regular reader, you have probably figured out that we love to try all sorts of face masks. Clay, to get all those impurities out. Yogurt, to amp up probiotics. Avocado, honey, egg whites—you name it!
But all these homemade masks can be a little messy. Making them is fun; having them on your face is relaxing, but cleaning the sink afterward? Not so much. That’s why sheet masks are a godsend.
And it’s even socially acceptable now to take a selfie in a sheet mask, so that’s a win-win! Super hydrating because of the high water content and the sheet acting as a barrier against evaporation, this type of face mask offers visible results on the spot. Perfect if you’re impatient like us!
