Want to play with this look without messing around with glue? Swipe some Vaseline across your lips (rather thickly), and then press on craft glitter with your finger! Perfect for an Instagram photoshoot ;)
So much yes in one picture.
Hello! Thanks for sticking with me for this long!! :) It really means a lot!
I have really started to love sheet masks. At first I just thought they were the newest skincare gimmick, but they really can give you some great results, and long term benefits! It’s all going to depend on the kind of max you’re using.
Sheet masks (aka Fiber mask, Cloth mask), for those of you who aren’t familiar with them, are single-use masks that come in pouches. Generally they’re made of a fabric or even paper, and they just have holes for your eyes, nose and mouth. They are pre-moistened with hydrating ingredients that often include vitamins A, C, or E, aloe, or hyaluronic acid. Sheet masks are excellent for people with dry skin, skin that’s looking dull or tired, people who have just done an intensive peel, or irritated skin that needs soothing. The idea is to place these sheets on your face and allow your skin to absorb all of the good ingredients. Sheet masks are effective because they hold all of the ingredients in place and push them deeper into the skin, whereas masks that are applied alone to the surface of the skin can evaporate rather than absorb.
Masks that are made with fabric tend to be a lot more effective than those made with paper, because the paper dries faster and allows more of the nutrients to evaporate before they are absorbed by your skin. Make sure you’re checking the ingredients on your masks as well… if the only thing on your mask is a gelatinous gook, then there’s really no point. Also avoid sheet masks that have a lot of fragrance to them, because synthetic fragrances are actually a skin irritant.
Sephora Green Tea Fiber Mask - $6
I’m partial to these Fiber Masks from the Sephora brand because there are lots of different masks for different skin concerns, and they’re pretty affordable.
I also really like the Karuna Luxe facial masks (those I find to be the most effective, if a little more expensive).
