What’s so good about sheet masks?
They’re lightweight and handy. With so many shapes and varieties out there, there’s bound to be a type that suits your skin condition or skin woe.
If you’re going on a trip, my suggestion is to pack two masks for each day — put on a hydrating sheet mask in the day and apply an overnight, anti-aging mask before you turn in. At the start of your trip, the daytime mask is going to be very helpful in restoring the moisture lost on your flight. Ideally, these two masks per day would cover both face and eye areas.
Hot tip: Add a step to your mask regime — when you’re done pampering your face, transfer the mask to the front and back of your neck to get the most out of the nutrients in your soaked sheet. – Leanne Ho, skincare reviewer
