In recent years sheet masks have turned the beauty world upside down. Everyone’s doing it! It’s not odd to hop on a plane and see women AND men hydrating their faces. Simply put, it’s a mask in a “sheet” form — made of fiber, cotton, cellulose, or coconut pulp, with holes, It’s wet, cold, and usually dripping straight out of the package, because it’s infused with hydrating ingredients. You place it on your face by lining up the holes over your eyes and mouth. a packaged piece of face-shaped fabric that sits in a concentrated version of one or more active ingredients until you're ready to use it. Sheet masks have a higher concentration of actives than a topical product, and depending on the material you use, the sheet can help deliver products deeper into the skin. The cotton sheets are doused in a serum-based formula and then placed on top of the skin, so they won’t work as well for tasks like exfoliating or cleansing deeply.
These liquid-based formulas come in many variations that claim different results—lifting, preventing acne, hiding fine lines—but you should primarily count on them for hydration. The theory is that sheet masks use the material to trap active ingredients on the skin, forcing it to lock in the moisture and receive all the benefits. Hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and/or antioxidants are the three ingredients that you’ll find in most sheet masks. Hyaluronic acid works as the hydrator, creating a barrier for the skin, locking in moisture, and improving texture. Our skin loses water and moisture as we age, so this ingredient helps restore hydration, Ceramides work to block out the environmental factors that can disrupt the lipid layer of skin, which locks in moisture and acts as a barrier against skin hazmat like pollution and bacteria. If this first line of defense is compromised, the skin is at risk of rapid aging, Ceramides help restore the skin’s barrier by holding those essential lipid layer cells in place, resulting in smoother, plumper, and more moisturized skin. But they're not always great for people with acne. The occlusion (sealing of the skin) that happens with sheet masks can increase the temperature of your skin, from an average of 89.6 to 98.6 degrees. That's not ideal if you are prone to breakouts. Increasing the temperature can increase the bacteria count on the surface of the skin, causing acne If you have acne-prone or oily skin.
Lastly, If you're wondering whether sheet masks are sanitary, don't worry, Despite some reports in 2016 that some masks had bacteria on them, most masks hygienic because they're vacuum-sealed. Their single-serve packaging makes them super-convenient.
