A long standing staple in Asian skin care, sheet masks are having somewhat of an ‘Insta mum’ moment with everyone from Victoria Beckham to Kim Kardashian-West (and even little old me) posting snaps in full sheet mask glory.
Yes, they may make you look like something out of a horror movie but these scary looking sheet masks are actually a beauty angle, brightening, hydrating and refreshing the skin like nothing else. Made of fabric or solid gel and doused in serum, sheet masks are the perfect quick fix for tired, dull and dehydrated skin in desperate need of a pick me up.
I’m a big fan of popping one on every sunday while enjoying my morning Java or before a rare night out away from the kids for an instantly plumped-up, perky complexion in minutes. So go ahead, check out my 9 game changing sheet mask for knackered mums.
