Think sheet masks are just a silly fad used by quirky celebs? Think again! Those funny-looking sheets that mold to your eyes, nose, or entire face have been trending in Korea for quite some time now. And they’re finally gaining popularity in the U.S because of the instant effects they have in regards to skin brightening. They’re also an inexpensive way to treat yourself vs. going to a facial.
Composed of thin cotton, hydrogel, or biocellulose (a fruit or vegetable fiber), sheet masks are the ultimate at-home luxury. Each sheet is designed like a second skin and packed with nutrients that penetrate deep into your pores, addressing everything from dryness to grease to wrinkles! Tip: We like to pop one into the fridge before we take a shower so it’s nice and cool when we apply it before bed.
