This is probably not the first time you've read an article about sheet masks. In fact, you may have read countless of articles telling you about its different uses, including a remedy for different skin emergencies. Most people do sheet masks two to three times a week depending on their skin's needs. But this time around, we're sharing with you the benefits of daily masking. Read on to find out how you can get better skin with this habit.
1. It does wonders for your skin's hydration.
A hydrating sheet mask can drastically improve your skin's dehydration. Doing this before the rest of your skin care steps also helps your skin soak in the moisture from your serums, essences, and moisturizers.

2. You get more product absorbed by your skin.
The actual sheet helps prevent the product from evaporating and gets soaked in by your skin instead.
3. You can target different problems every day of the week.
Since sheet masks actually address different skin probs depending on the ingredients, you can actually treat each depending on the day's most pressing skin concern. Is your skin looking a little dull? Go for masks with Vitamin C to brighten up your face. If you want to plump and firm up your skin, look for masks with Collagen. Keep an eye out for Hyaluronic Acid if you want more moisture. If you need a serious detox, end the week with a mask that has ingredients like tea tree, lavender, seaweed, or witch hazel.

Sheet masks have fewer preservatives, therefore there is less chance of irritation. But if you're acne prone, try to limit your sheet masking as they might aggravate your zits!
5. It helps you relax!
Putting on a sheet mask as part of your skin care routine kind of forces you to have a 15-20-minute me time every day. Whether you do it in the morning or at night, pampering yourself for a few minutes each day doesn't just help your skin, it also helps improve your general disposition.
