What is a sheet mask?

Known as a lazy girl s facial, sheet mask comes in the form of a cotton sheet infused with a serum. The product is known to treat a wide range of skin problems that range from dry skin to enlarged pores and fine lines. It also claims to moisturise the skin and brighten the skin tone. The sheet masks are made up of a variety of materials including papers, fibres or gel types. Regular facial masks require you to wash the paste after applying it on the skin and apply other skin care products. Unlike commonly used facial masks, sheet masks are easy to use as you have to apply the shet over the face, take it off after some time and pat in extra serum. It is easy and fast to use as compared to regular face masks. However, sheet masks should not be reused as they are strictly meant for one-time usage.
