Sheet Masks: The Easiest Way to Get Your Korean Beauty Fix

BY Sam Pick · January 20, 2016

After dominating the Korean beauty scene, single-use sheet masks have wasted very little time in becoming one of the most talked-about beauty products on the American beauty market. Doused in a liquid-based formula that’s packed full of vitamins, minerals and amino acids, sheet masks have maintained their appeal of being as incredibly useful as they are straightforward to use. Straightforward may seem basic—and they are just that—but we mean it fondly. Not only do they come contoured to rest on your face (ensuring that all those active ingredients remain in contact with the skin), but they’re also very noncommittal. If you know you’re in need of a hydration boost or a little “pamper time” but don’t think you’re ready for the commitment of a new moisturizer or the expense of a professional facial, sheet masks are exactly what you’re looking for. Although they may look a little intimidating, once you learn exactly how to use them you’ll be hooked—we promise!
