Sheet masks are thin, moistened wet-wipe type material that you use to cover your face in the application of a beauty treatment. They have cutouts for your eyes and nose and contain a serum to moisturize your face and provide other benefits as indicated on the package. They have been touted to brighten and firm the skin. They are an easy, cost-effective way of infusing moisture and much-needed vitamins into the skin.
As with any skincare routine, it is important to cleanse the skin thoroughly with a gentle cleanser before applying your sheet mask. Using a toner after cleansing will magnify the benefits of the serum that is contained in the sheet. The serum usually contains several ingredients, in an effort to provide wide-ranging benefits. As we all have different skin types, it's important to choose the sheet mask that will most benefit your particular skin condition.
So how many types of sheet masks are there? Here are the eight most popular ones:
Bio-cellulose is a super-thin, natural fiber with a diameter of 20 nanometers. That's 1000 times thinner than a human hair. These fibers are woven into fabric and cut into sheets which are then loaded with the ingredients needed for healthy glowing skin. This mask will be ultra-gentle on your skin thanks to the material that is used to create it.
Clay and Charcoal sheet masks are black in color and infused with clay and charcoal. Despite being infused with these microparticles, these masks feel very smooth on the skin and are great for pulling out excess oil, detoxifying the skin, and reducing inflammation.
Foil sheet masks as the name suggests, have foil on the outer layer of the mask. The foils trap the heat of the skin providing warmth which in turn allows for greater absorption of the serum.
Microfiber sheet masks are white in color, soft, and smooth as silk. This material is biodegradable and contains no harmful chemicals making it an eco-friendly option. It will sit smoothly on the contours of your face.
Knit sheet masks are made from 100% pure knitted cotton and make the claim of providing faster retention of moisture. The knitted masks are usually longer, meant to include coverage of the decolletage. It is important to remember to include your neck when caring for your face as this is one of the first areas to show aging.
Bubbling sheet masks have oxygen pumped into the serum under the sheet. Perfluorocarbons that dissolve oxygen are also included in the mixture. Smoothing the mask onto your face causes the trapped oxygen to be released as bubbles. These masks make claims to increase the production of collagen, which is essential for creating younger, wrinkle-free skin.
Ampoule sheet masks are simply a sheet mask that uses an ampoule instead of serum. An ampoule is a liquid containing highly concentrated active ingredients, meant to boost the promised outcome of the mask. It is broken before being gently applied to the skin in a circular motion and patted into the skin before applying the mask.
Hydrogel sheet masks are made from cellulose or synthetic fibers. The masks are smooth and gel-like and are often infused with hyaluronic acids. The smooth and slippery feel of these masks can sometimes make them difficult to apply. They are very cool and soothing and may be placed in the fridge to amplify the cooling effect.
This answer do that is, Yes! Masks that are for moisturization, skin firming, and clarification are safe to use every day. Clay and carbon masks may not be needed on a daily basis. It is important to remember to make your skincare specific to your skin type so read all instructions on each packaging carefully before purchasing. And remember to include your neck in your skincare routine.
