What is a Sheet Mask?

Good for selfies, and even better for your skin, sheet masks are but one of many South Korean face products to have immediately gained a cult following upon arriving stateside. Designed to target different complexion concerns and infuse skin with everything from hydration to anti-aging ingredients, Korean sheet masks are a cheap, cheerful, and easy-to-use way to get glowing skin.

Benefits of a sheet mask

Okay, so you know sheet masks are like a giant glass of green juice for your skin, but do they work? Soaked in nourishing serums and made from woven materials to increase product absorption and skin hydration, Korean face masks are quickly becoming a skin care regimen staple. St. Ives sheet masks in particular are free of parabens and sulfates, so you can feel good about applying one to your skin.

How often do I use sheet masks?

How often to use sheet masks depends on your time and budget. Since sheet masks don’t strip skin (they don’t cleanse or exfoliate), they can be applied daily.

1. Our Revitalizing Sheet Mask is the perfect mask for early mornings. Made with açai, blueberry, and chia seed oils, these ingredients hydrate skin for a healthy, vibrant look to kick off your day. These hydrating sheet masks are made from 100% cotton to prevent the serum from evaporating too quickly to ensure that all the skin goodies actually absorb into your skin!

2. Major events call for our Glowing Apricot Sheet Mask. We love using this apricot-packed mask to prep our skin from everything from first dates to fun nights out with friends. Made with 100% natural apricot extracts, and woven from 100% cotton for better absorption, these sheet masks are sure to revive your skin for a beautiful, fresh glow. To get that glow to the next level, apply after exfoliating with our Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub.

3. Calm skin after a stressful week with our Soothing Oatmeal Sheet Mask. Made with 100% cotton, this sheet mask is hydrating and soothing all at once thanks to the powers of redness-reducing oatmeal extract. It especially works wonders for dry skin. Apply before bingeing a couple episodes of your favorite show for maximum stress-relief!

Sheet mask tricks and pro-tips

As with most other skin care products, there are several tricks of the trade to get more out of your masks. Here’s how to get glowing skin by enhancing the effects of your sheet masks.

    Should You Wash Your Face Before or After Showering?

    Have no fear – we’ve done our share of research, and the answer is clear: post-shower is definitely the way to go. Sure, washing your face in the shower saves time but it can also do more harm than good – like, clogging pores with other products (gross) or drying out skin with hot water (ouch).

  • How Often Should You Exfoliate Your Face?

    Exfoliation is the removal of dead and the oldest skin cells from the topmost layer of skin and can be accomplished via face scrubs, facials or peels. Now, how often should you exfoliate your face? Skin should be exfoliated on a consistent and regular basis as dead skin can get trapped on the surface and cause clogged pores, rough skin texture, dullness, and breakouts!
