Decoding Beauty Masks

With a multitude of beauty masks available right now, you’ve only got to jump on Instagram to see that everyone is on the masking train. I mean, it’s almost as if you’re not sharing the experience on Instagram, are you really masking? But between sheet masks to hair masks, and peel off masks to mud masks; exactly what do each actaually do, how do we actually use them and how often? Time to break it down..

Facial Sheet Masks

  • Seals in water, therefore leaving skin intensely hydrated.
  • Practical for everyday use, with fantastic results in 15 mins or less!

My pick of the bunch is a sheet mask, they’re just so quick and really pack quite a punch. As Lynne Meaney, Skinvitals founder says, “sheet masks are particularly beneficial because they can saturate the skin to increase water content. The masks push ingredients into the skin for maximum absorption and then act like a seal to prevent evaporation. Sheet masks don’t dry out the skin like some other types of masks and depending on which one you buy – some are now quite technologically advanced providing some really excellent results. They are extremely practical and easy to use, as they can leave your skin fresh and glowing after just 15 mins and you don’t need to wash your face after using!”

Yours in masking glory,
