Question of the Week: What are your feelings about the current sheet mask craze? Have you ever tried one? If so, do you prefer them to traditional facial masks?
I have been wearing sheet masks for years. Seriously. For like 5 years now. The craze hit Asia hard a long time ago and it is only slowly crept into the US market. I am a huge fan of them though. What I actually love to do is a mask flip. First I wear a mud mask or something that clears the pores and to replenish the skin I apply a sheet mask and relax. It really restores the moisture in the skin that a mud type mask takes out. They come in a large variety of treatments and all different price points. There are even DIY sheet masks. You can by the dry mask and add whatever essence or hydrating treatment you want and VOILA you have your own custom mask.
These aren’t exactly new either because I had friends in other countries that had access to these a few years ago but I will say that the US is finally catching on and now people are more inclined to try DIY skincare in general. Perfect timing.
You can actually buy a version of these on Amazon and they are really inexpensive. If you want to give these a try then you definitely should start there.
