Best Sheet Masks
When we’re feeling stressed, sometimes it is reflected in the condition of our skin. Stress can cause already existing skin issues to flare up or form new ones. I know when I am feeling stressed my skin begins to feel dehydrated, look dull, and starts breaking out. When we feel stress, our body begins to release adrenaline and cortisol in our bodies. The sudden increase in cortisol can lead our skin glands to increment its oil production therefore leading to potential acne breakouts and clogged pores. Now that midterm season is in session, I am looking forward to treating my flare ups before they worsen. An easy way to take care of my skin during these stressful times is by using sheet masks. The lack of time to take care of my skin contributes to my dehydrated and dull looking skin. This is why sheet masks are a great pick me up product during busy seasons. You can even multitask with it on! Here are top three favorite sheet masks of all time:
It’s Skin Power 10 Formula VC
This sheet mask claims to brighten dehydrated and dull skin. It is made up of a nourishing blend of antioxidants and vitamins. Its main ingredient is Camellia Sinensis Leaf extract which is known for its brightening and soothing properties. There are many variations of this sheet mask that address different skin concerns but my favorite is the VC brightening formula because I find it effective at treating my dull skin. It is generously soaked in serum which helps it cling properly onto the skin and leaves the skin feeling hydrated and soft. Overall I love this product because in just fifteen minutes my complexion is left looking radiant and healthy!
Huxley Mask; Moisture and Freshness
What initially drew me to this product in particular was its interesting packaging. This sheet mask actually involves a two step process. The product contains two pouches that contain two different formulas. The top pouch of the product contains the sheet mask and a blue water essence made of a blend of Blue Agave Extract and Blue Mallow Extract. This aids in soothing and hydrating the skin after exposure to dry environments. The bottom pouch contains a refreshing hybrid of gel and oil that helps create a protective barrier that locks in moisture. To use, fold over the bottom pouch three times and apply a little pressure until you hear a pop and see the contents of the bottom pouch flow into the top pouch. Then with your fingers make sure the contents of both pouches are mixed together before taking the sheet mask out of the pouch. I enjoy using this sheet mask whenever I want to soothe my dry and irritated skin. I particularly like the light watery essence it contains because it provides a fresh feeling upon application and leaves my skin feeling moisturized and supple!
Mediheal Tea Tree Essential Blemish Control Mask
I saved the best for last! This is the sheet mask I have been using for the longest and it is a staple that I always stock up on whenever I get the chance. This sheet mask claims to be balancing, calming, and pore tightening. It contains my favorite ingredient; tea tree extract, which is known for its soothing properties. This is definitely the first product I reach for whenever I see my acne flaring up again. While using it my skin instantly feels refreshed from the irritating feeling that acne sometimes causes. Immediately after removing it I find that my skin looks visibly less red and the next day my complexion looks a bit more even. This is definitely my most used product during the midterm season!
