Sheet Masks 101: 5 On-The-Go Sheet Masks You NEED to Carry in Your Bag
Hola Chica Bonitas
I hope all my beautiful ladies are doing really good. I was in the mood for some spa yesterday. Without wasting any time I quickly went ahead and checked the rate charts on various websites. Then, one look at my wallet and I was like ‘meh..may be next month’. Trust me, this is the story of every month.
However, I am one of those ‘never-say- never’, who is constantly in search of a decent ‘jugaad’. Believe me what I found out was more than a ‘jugaad’
What if, I told you, you could have your very own spa day, at less than half the price….and of course at the comfort of your home? Yes, mi amigos, for the next 4 minutes, I will be rambling about sheet masks and I promise, by the end of it you will thank god for bringing these little babies to the world.
What are Sheet Masks?
Sheet masks are basically fabrics cut into the shape of a face, soaked in potent serums, to give you the maximum benefit. The sheets can be made up of a variety of safe materials including papers, fibres or gel even! They come in many variants for different skin types and conditions.
Sheet Mask Vs Regular face pack
Why would you choose a sheet mask at all? Well for starters they are convenient to use, non-messy, travel-friendly and not to forget, most importantly, they are the mother load of nutrients. As opposed to a face pack that might dry out your skin sheet masks provide the right amount of moisturization your skin needs.
Right way to use a sheet mask
Easy as pie!!
-take the mask out of the packet and adjust it on your face
-keep it on for a good 20 minutes
-take it off and DO NOT WASH
-pat the product into the skin and finally moisturize
Voila!! We are good to go!
How often can I use a sheet mask?
There are no set rules regarding the frequency of use. Some people even vouch for, using it every day. However, you can start by using it 1-2 times a week.
My obsession with sheet masks started a few months back and guess what! After a lot of trying and testing, I have put together the Oscar winners of sheet masks just for my gal pals, so that you look gorgeous, even on the go.
