The sheet mask has become a bestseller. And it is no coincidence - it has many advantages. It is sold everywhere, it is inexpensive, it is very hygienic, as it is used once. One pack - one mask. And that means that every evening you can try a new one. And most importantly, it is very easy to use, more convenient than products from a jar, which should be applied with your fingers to your face.
With fabrics, everything is so simple that you can use them even on the road, for example, on a train. The remains of the lotion with which the mask is impregnated can be easily removed with a cotton pad moistened with micellar water. In a word, solid pluses. It remains to find a tool that is right for you.
The first sheet masks went on sale in South Korea in 2011. The popularity of the product has grown in a matter of months. Korean women commented on the unprecedented convenience and excellent performance. The synthetic fabric, impregnated with a moisturizing composition, instantly moisturizes the skin of the face, relieves irritation and neutralizes signs of fatigue.
Apply the mask to a clean face for 15–20 minutes. The result is smooth and hydrated skin, velvety and radiant. If time permits, you can lie with a mask for a whole hour. This is not harmful, on the contrary, the longer the impregnation remains on the face, the more noticeable the effect will be.
