7 Luxury Sheet Masks That Will Give Your Skin Some Much-Needed TLC
You might not be a stickler for routine, but if there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that indulging in self-care is nothing short of following a carefully-curated ritual. Especially since it involves giving your face a lavish dose of rejuvenation, while you hang out in front of the TV. That’s right, we are talking about sheet masks. Everyone loves a good scrub and home-made pack every now and then, but it can get a tad bit time-consuming. If you’re constantly on the go, like us, and need a quick fix to give your skin a boost of hydration, sheet masks will come to your rescue. Think of it as a mini facial, that takes no more than 10 minutes, to seal your face with good-for-you ingredients and a burst of hydration. Here are some of our favourite masks for dull and dry skin, that is easy to apply and just as easy to take off.
A list on luxury skincare can’t be quite complete without mentioning La Mer. Perfect for almost every skin type, the Treatment Lotion Hydrating mask combats dryness and dullness with the help of its Miracle Broth that has been specially engineered to promote cell regeneration. The mask gives the skin a boost of hydration, which lends a smooth and plump look in a matter of minutes. We love it when we can’t get over how soft our face feels, and this mask helps achieve just that.
SK-II always manages to top the charts when it comes to facial care. And with celebrities and models like Jourdan Dunn being big fans, why shouldn’t you add this to your vanity too? The Japanese brand’s moisturising sheet mask targets uneven skin tone, giving it a brighter and even-looking complexion. It comes packed with ingredients like Vitamin B3, Vitamin C and SK-II’s trademark skin ingredient, Pitera which lends the skin a luminous glow.
This sheet mask offering from Amorepacific comes with its unique Meladefying Complex, which is a micro-fibre material pumped with Asian botanicals, that helps brighten the skin and also defines the contours and edges of the face. So, if you’ve been struggling to get that glow back on, this one’s your saviour. We say, keep one of these masks in you hand bag, just in case you need a little insta-pick-me-up.
The best part about this mask from Clarins is that it shows results within 15 minutes of application. As the name suggests, the serum in the mask gives the skin an instant lift and plumps it up good. While the harungana extract present in the mask reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. What really caught our attention is that, the mask is made out of biodegradable tissue. So not only are you treating your skin but also doing your bit for the environment. Win-win.
Eve Lom’s brightening sheet mask is God-send when you are looking for something that’s not only soothing to the skin but also super effective. The mask is made out of 100 cotton fibres, and its DermaPep technology helps in reducing pigmentation and evening out the skin tone. Talk about an all in one skincare goodie. Ageing, we’re ready to take you on.
The Japanese sure know how to take good care of the skin so it’s no wonder that Shiseido’s White Lucent Power Brightening Mask works wonders on the face. Inspired by the beauty treatment called “iontophoresis”, the mask soaks the skin with an abundance of brightening ingredients. The Ion Force technology by Shiseido comes into play next and helps the skin absorb those ingredients to provide immediate results. So now you know a lot of love (and technology) has gone into making these masks.
This silky mask from Tatcha feels luxurious on the face as the lightweight rice germ oil present in it drenches the skin with a much-needed shot of hydration. The sheet is made out of a very fine microfibre sheet which is 100 times thinner than a strand of hair. Can you imagine exactly how thin that is? No wonder the mask feels like a second layer of your own skin.
