It’s close to three months since the lockdown. While our social life has gone for a complete toss, we can make use of our free time by attending to the needs of our skin. And what better way to do so than by using sheet masks to pamper the skin. These beauty must-haves are the perfect multi-tasking heroes that provide quick and visible results. Here are a bunch of reasons that prove sheet masking is the ultimate lockdown activity you should be indulging in.

 

01. You can use a sheet mask as often as you want

One of the best benefits of using sheet masks is that there is no limit on the number of times you can use it. In fact, studies claim that using one sheet mask a day is great, because that way, the serum from the sheet masks have the ability to work on your skin at a deeper level and give you the desired results.

The first thing that you will notice after using a sheet mask is how plump and hydrated your skin looks. Since sheet masks come soaked in serum, it leaves your skin thoroughly hydrated and conditioned. Over time, with regular use, the serum will start to work on your skin at a deeper level and provide permanent results.

Apart from leaving behind quite a bit of excess serum (which you must obviously apply to your neck and hands), sheet masks are pretty much mess-free. Unlike a traditional face mask where you spend more time applying and cleaning the mess than soaking in the benefits, sheet masks simply just cut to the chase and deliver stellar results.

 

04. The serum absorbs into your skin more effectively

The reason sheet masks offer instant results is because they come pre-soaked with a lot of serum containing a host of potent ingredients. Secondly, the cloth layer that sticks to your skin pushes in the serum, and prevents evaporation and enhances absorption of all the good stuff. Therefore, it would be a good idea to clean and exfoliate your skin before using a sheet mask to boost this process further.

Sheet masks do not contain a lot of chemicals or preservatives since it is a one-time use product. Thus, sheet masks are a relatively safer option for everyday use for people with sensitive skin. However, if your skin is prone to breakouts, you can limit the use of sheet mask to about three to four times a week.
