Dry, dehydrated skin is the bane of my existance. Every time I forget to use my face scrub or apply my night cream, it’s a mess. A very dry mess. For me, the best way to deal with it in an instant is to pop on a sheet mask! The ones I’ve been using and loving recently are from When, a lovely Korean (duh!) brand. I developed a ritual of putting them on before bed for thirty minutes a couple of times a week and my skin has been more than thankful.
If you’ve never used a sheet mask before, the only thing you need to do is to take it out of the pouch, discard the top and bottom layers and apply the middle one to your face. And then, after half an hour, you toss the mask away and gently massage any leftover essence to your skin. There’s absolutely no need to wash your face right after. In fact, you shouldn’t do it.
I find sheet masks perfect for when you’re travelling, because they’re so convenient and fuss-free to use, and then another aspect I’ve been especially enjoying recently is their cooling effect. I’ve been suffering with hayfever this past month and noticed they really help calm my itchy skin down at the end of the day.
The two When masks I’ve been trying out are called Glamour Base and The Last Choice. Both are infused with intensely hydrating, lightweight serum and other ingredients that are supposed to keep your skin happy, healthy and glowing. I didn’t notice any major differences between the two, but they both left my skin super soft, hydrated and dry patch free for at least 24 hours, like promised. I’d never been waking up with such plump skin before!
Glamour Base promises smooth and firm looking skin, for when you’re preparing for your special day and want your makeup to look flawless and last longer, while The Last Choice drenches your skin in moisture, making it perfect for when your skin needs copious amounts of hydration. I’m a fan!
How about you? Have you tried any sheet masks before?
