Bring in the Sheet Masks: These are the masks you need in your cabinet for winter time
By Carolina Malis
What comes to your mind when you hear the word sheet mask? Relaxation? Pamper yourself time? The cure to every single problem in the world? Well, whatever the case truth is sheet masks are by far one of the most popular K-Beauty trends out there and for a reason. If you’ve never tried one or heard about them, they’re these cotton/hydrogel face-shaped masks people wear all over Instagram. They’re soaked in formulas containing ingredients that can help skin soothe, calm and cool down and overall stay hydrated. If you’ve tried them already then we, my friends, speak the same language.
But not all sheet mask work the same, of course. There’s some with a focus on acne, or healing, some meant to brighten up skin, while other ones look forward to bring up moisture or reduce sebum production. There’s just a whole universe of sheet masks out there and while there’s many I’d love to recommend (believe me that list would be infinite), here’s some I’ve been reaching back to lately especially now that the weather has no mercy on us and all that’s left in the world is cold air.
Neogen Dermalogy Super Hydra Aqua Capsule Mask
Besides being super fun to use, this one is truly dewy skin on a mask. Why? It comes with a capsule on top containing nano-sized hyaluronic acid particles (AKA, easier to absorb by the skin), which you need to break in order to let the formula drop into the mask. Besides the hyaluronic acid, there's ceramides and cholesterol in the mix which help maximize moisture absorption and keep skin healthy, elastic and hydrated for longer time.
This collection is the perfect definition of simplicity that works. Infused with ingredients that help revitalize, regenerate, nourish and regulate skin's hydration levels, these masks are a great choice for those searching for a sensitive-skin friendly mask - but truly they work for everyone.
Surmedic - Age Control Multi Vita Mask
One of my absolute favorites of the collection, this hypoallergenic mask is soaked in the most soothing essence formulated with niacinamide and adenosine, which are of great help especially when rosacea is taking over. It's also very brightening and leaves skin feeling firmer in a way, kind of like a youth shot.
Surmedic - Bright Glutathione Mask
Suffering from dull skin? Oh boy, you need this one. Super brightening and hydrating this mask is what dewy skin dreams are made of. Formulated with glutathiones which help revive tired and dull skin - this mask not only delivers anti-aging results but also leaves the skin looking and feeling so radiant you won't be in need of highlighter anymore. This is a great one to apply on morning time for no-makeup days.
Surmedic - Hydro Hyaluronic Mask
This mask is saturated (and when I say saturated I mean totally soaking) in this super hydrating and moisturizing formula containing hyaluronic acid, one of the best hydrators out there because of how effectively it penetrates your skin preventing it from dehydrating throughout the day. With low temperatures hitting, this is a great one for those who suffer from extreme dryness.
Surmedic - Vital Collagen Mask
Not sleeping well? Skin feeling stressed and dull? Fine lines showing up? This is the mask for you. It brings back elasticity and the collagen contained in it travels deep into the skin to accomplish young looking, firm and tight skin. A great blessing for no-makeup days too as it will provide smoothness and a lifting effect on skin.
