Guess what? You don’t need a spa to have a spa day!
If you’re in need of some pampering there’s quite a lot of things one can do at home. Starting with a mask. And while classic masks have been available for at home use since forever the last few years there’s trend taking over this area: sheet masks.
Sheet masks are a South Korean invention as most true skincare and makeup innovations are. They are basically regular masks soaked up in a face shaped fabric that you simply put on. This has a number of benefits compared to regular masks:
- no dosage issues
- they come in individual packages which makes them stay fresh for longer
- they very rarely drip
- usually no rinsing is required, the excess product is simply massaged into the skin once the cloth is removed
- and finally, the feeling is much more spa like, like you’re being taken care of by someone 🙂
Since it’s summer i would recommend something hydrating (to counteract the drying effect of the sun) , but cooling (well, for obvious reasons). Like the green tea sheet mask from Innisfree (below).
But there’s infinite options for basically every possible skin concern. Here are my favourites:
- Sulwhasoo Snowise EX Brightening Mask (130$ for 10 sheets)
- SK-II Facial Treatment Mask (£60 for 10 sheets)
- The whole Tony Moly I’m Real Mask Sheet Pack (9.95$ for 10 sheets, one of each type)
- The face shop Real Nature Mask Sheet Blueberry (6.90$ per sheet)
- The whole Etude House I need you 20pcs set (28.98$ for 20 sheets)
- Dr. Jart+ Pore Minimalist Black Charcoal Sheet Mask (35$ for five sheets)
