Offering ease of use and compatibility with many skin types, sheet masks are often made from materials like biocellulose, cotton or hydrogel that is saturated with a potent serum to help your skin absorb a high concentration of active ingredients for instant results. Hydrating sheet masks, like the Ultraceuticals Ultra B2 Hydration Mask are the most popular choices as these treatment masks can dramatically boost skin hydration in as little as 10-20 minutes. Similarly, some sheet masks are made specifically for fine line and wrinkle correction like the silicone Wrinkles Schminkles Forehead Wrinkle Patches which can be worn overnight whilst you sleep. The medical grade silicone helps lock vital hydration into the skin, preventing epidermal moisture loss whilst smoothing the skin.

How to Apply Sheet Masks Correctly

If you’re wondering how to apply a sheet mask correctly, it is actually rather simple. Start with cleansed skin that is free from sunscreen, makeup and pollution. Carefully open the sheet mask packaging, careful not to spill the serum within, and unfold the mask before sliding it into position on your face. The Skinstitut Anti-Ageing Sheet Mask like most sheet masks, features cut-out zones for the nostrils, eyes and lips. The key here is to ensure that the entire face is well covered to maximise results. Gently smooth the mask with your fingers to ensure even contact with your face whilst eliminating air bubbles. 

How Long to Leave on a Sheet Mask

Depending on your chosen product, the time a sheet mask is left on the skin can vary from 10-20 minutes to hours overnight. Cotton, biocellulose and hydrogel masks like the Image I Mask Hydrating Hydrogel Sheet Mask tend to be best left on the skin for up to 20 minutes, allowing you to relax whilst your skin fully absorbs the active ingredients that saturate the sheet mask. Other sheet masks, like the reusable silicone Wrinkles Schminkles, are designed to be worn for a few hours and even overnight to help smooth skin and lock in moisture. These reusable masks can be washed and refreshed between uses making an ideal choice for wrinkle correction.

What to Do After a Sheet Mask

The beauty of a sheet mask is that additional skincare steps can either become very simple or not be required. By following the directions for use on your chosen sheet mask, your skin will benefit most. As a general rule, once you have removed the sheet face mask it is recommended to massage residual serum into the face, neck and décolletage. It is not always necessary to apply a moisturiser after a sheet mask as often the hydrating and skin conditioning goodness from the sheet mask provides adequate nourishment. The Thalgo Masque Shot Flash Lift Shot Masque and the Aspect Intense Hydration Sheet Mask are great examples of this, so the next step is to enjoy your newly plumped, hydrated and refreshed complexion.
