Now that summer has come to an unofficial end, it’s time to tackle the damage all of that fun-in-the-sun caused your skin. From dehydration to uneven skin tone, jump start your fall skin care routine with a sheet mask. Sheet masks, created in Asia, have become hugely popular in the US over the last year. The sheets are typically cotton masks with the eyes, nose, and mouth cut out that have been drenched in a serum or various other liquid ingredients, vitamins, and extracts. They are fantastic when your skin is in need of mega hydration plus a little tightening and toning.
If you’ve never tried sheet masks, which can often be pricey since you only get one use per purchase, Masque Bar sheet masks from Look Beauty, just $9.99 each, are a great place to start! With nine different options, each addressing different skin care concerns, Masque Bar sheet masks will leave your skin looking and feeling hydrated and radiant in just 30 minutes. Choose from:
