The Meteoric Rise Of The Sheet Mask - Asia’s Latest Beauty Trend
In Asia, glowing skin is synonymous with femininity, elegance, and wealth, and cosmetics labs are constantly trying to outdo each other. Asians aren't as wrinkle-obsessed as Europeans, but they are, however, continually on the quest for a flawless complexion that combines brightness, even tone and a smooth texture.
Sheet masks are one of the many steps that make up the Korean beauty regime. They're made from cotton and their fibrous texture is imbued with moisturising lotion. They come in face-shaped sheets with holes cut out for the eyes, nostrils, and mouth, so that they sit close to the skin. The lotions used are concentrated in active ingredients tailored to each skin type. You can also get sheet masks that treat specific zones, eyes, lips, T-zone and neck, for a more targeted approach. Practical and soft to the touch, they are sold in single-use packets.
You can try the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Essence Face Sheet Mask to instantly brighten and hydrate your skin. In just 15 minutes, skin is brighter and smoother with healthy radiance. After 4 weeks of regular use, skin tone feels improved and lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced. The volcanic spring water in the Revitalift Essence sheet mask is infused with micro-nutrients that keep skin looking naturally radiant and smooth.
Use the Revitalift Essence sheet mask when the skin needs a real boost, if it's feeling dull or tight, or just for the fun of it to relax and unwind after a long day. After cleansing, gently apply the mask, smoothing out any folds. Leave it on for 15 minutes and once removed, massage the face so that any remaining lotion penetrates the skin. To increase the sheet mask's beneficial action, you can always use a face scrub beforehand to get rid of any dead skin cells.
Sheet masks can be used at room temperature, steamed (to open the pores) or straight from the fridge (for a visible, radiant glow). It has different benefits depending on the active ingredients in use. Choose your sheet mask according to what your skin type needs and don't hesitate to use specific ones on different parts of your face. Whether moisturising, nourishing, firming, anti-blemish or brightening, sheet masks are a real beauty booster!
