What do sheet masks really do?
Sheet masks are a relatively new type of face mask that you will have seen trending all over the beauty press and especially Instagram. The likes of Victoria Beckham, Maya Jama and Chrissy Teigen regularly post selfies donning these scary looking face sheets masks that deliver many benefits from brightening and illuminating, firming, lifting and general transformation for the skin.
Where do sheet masks originate from?
Facial sheet masks originate from Korea, where skin care development tends to be extremely advanced and it’s also the home of cutting-edge of cloth loaded technology. Some Asian sheet masks are totally ingenious with results that can be similar to those of aesthetic procedures. There is a wide range of Korean sheet masks available, each with different types of benefits ranging from hydrating, to brightening to cleansing.
So, how do sheet masks work?
Sheet masks are essentially a face-shaped piece of material such as fibre, cotton or bio-cellulose, soaked in a liquid serum infused with skin loving ingredients; vitamins, minerals, proteins, peptides and antioxidants… the list goes on.
Sheet masks come individually wrapped and are intended for single use. only Once you have taken the sheet mask out of the packet and applied to the face, the serum gets to work. The beautiful complex of skin-nourishing goodness is kept from evaporating thanks to the sealed pack which locks in all the moisture and protects it from being exposed to the air. Once open and applied to skin the serum complex is then pushed deeper and more effectively into the skin by the pressure from the fabric stretched across the face.
How to use sheet masks?
To begin with, make sure you skin is well prepped and ready to absorb as much serum as possible. Cleanse, exfoliate and tone using your favourite TEMPLESPA products and making sure your skin is left bare, clean and receptive to treatment.
Our best sheet mask is the award -winning THE CONTOURIST. Its unique as it has a full face, chin and jaw strap unlike most sheet masks that just cover the face. Apply our sheet mask to your face, securing the mask in place over your face and then stretching the loopholes up and over the ears to hug the chin and jaw line tight like a surgical compression mask. Leave the mask to work its magic for 20 minutes and then remove.. Massage the remaining serum into your face, neck and décolleté and finish with your TEMPLESPA moisturiser.
For best results, we recommend you use a sheet mask once or twice a week.
