The Benefits of Sheet Masks!
Breaking out? Dehydrated skin? Dull complexion? Want a reason to lie down? Whatever your current situation, just grab a sheet mask and relax. We all love indulging in a blissful self-care session every now and then, but if you don’t throw a sheet mask into the mix – you’re missing out. Let’s take a closer look at how they work, what they can do for our skin, and most importantly, why you should add a couple to your next haul!
What’s a sheet mask?
These individually packaged masks are face-shaped. Made out of a thin, lightweight fabric, they have cut-outs to help us properly align them to our facial features and they’re soaked in a highly concentrated serum that delivers a ton of benefits to our skin!
What are the benefits of using a sheet mask?
Now the real question is – are they an essential step to your current skincare routine? Yes, and no.
To put things into perspective, a sheet mask definitely isn’t a non-negotiable like cleansing or moisturizing… but if you have 20 minutes to spare, they’re an excellent addition to any skincare routine.
It’s a simple but effective way to shower your skin with love! Or more accurately, with a healthy dose of brightening, hydrating, soothing, or even anti-aging ingredients.
How do sheet masks work?
When skin is dehydrated, it becomes more vulnerable to common skin problems! Sheet masks are a quick fix for giving our skin an immediate boost of hydration – and hydrated skin is what sets the foundation for a healthy, glowing complexion.

The mask itself creates a physical barrier that encourages better absorption by acting as an occlusive – locking in all the good stuff. It helps prevent evaporation and ensures that your face remains saturated with the serum.
Keep in mind that you should only wear a sheet mask for the amount of time that’s recommended. Leaving them on for way too long can reduce its efficacy and it might even draw the moisture right back out!
