Sheet Masks — Simple and Beneficial

Ciao bella,

My first experience with a Sheet Mask was quite lovely. It comes already cut out to the size of a face and is usually white. I found it in Filene’s Basement here in Boston. It came conveniently folded up in a plastic case for its one-time use only.

At this time, my Sheet Mask on one side only was layered with antioxidants, emollients, vitamins, anti-aging benefits and included a promise for an instant lift. I carefully removed it from its packaging, since the Sheet Mask itself is quite delicate. It came unfolded and then I applied the wet side to my face. Areas for your eyes, nose and mouth were slit open so you can see, breathe and talk without much difficulty.

After 20 minutes, I removed my Sheet Mask and, following the manufacturer’s instructions, I massaged the ingredients into my skin for at least 5 to 10 minutes. My skin absorbed all the wonderful benefits nicely. I felt like I just had an hour-long facial. Saved $75 or more!

Other kinds of Sheet Masks can be applied over makeup to seal in the product. Keeping makeup fresh-looking throughout the day or evening. Great for those special occasions such as prom, anniversary, wedding day, or just out on the town celebrating life!

I highly recommend Sheet Masks to do at home or applied professionally. They are messfree and just so easy. Also, some Sheet Masks are used as a treatment to exfoliate skin, making skin appear brighter and hydrated and giving it an instant glow that lasts all day!

You can find Sheet Masks everywhere. From your local pharmacy, cosmetic counter or your esthetician.

The Sheet Mask’s properties are so similar to a column I wrote on Keratin Gloves and Keratin Socks. I do stock up on the Keratin, as I know it to be a necessity for my clients.

My clients have given me positive results on using the Keratin Gloves and Socks. Winter can be so drying. We need all the moisture we can get!

Choose your Sheet Mask wisely and get Masked!

Buona giornata and God bless the United States of America!
