For being a supporter of our blog GOOD VIBES BLOGGING. All I can say that we bloggers won’t let you down. We will always bring up topics of your interest because what are we here for, to help you, people.
Similarly, the topic that I’ll be talking about today is Serum sheet masks and the best sheet masks available in India. I came across many people who do like these sheet masks but have doubts too regarding them. Like what are they supposed to do with the leftover serum in the masks? Which brand to choose from? Which side to apply? And so on. So today in this blog I’ll be sharing with you everything that I know about serum sheet masks and the best sheet masks with the hope that it will help in clarifying your doubts regarding the same.
So without any delay let’s move towards our first section.
⚫WHAT ARE SERUM SHEET MASKS?
Serum sheet masks are sheets that are made of paper soaked in nutritious enriched liquid serum or hydrogel. The thing that makes it different from the normal facial masks is that it is not paste type. You only need to apply the sheet, pat in extra serum, and take off the sheet. Generally, we use these masks only once and they are packed individually.
Apart from the above-mentioned material sheet masks can also be made from flexible paper, cellulose, or an assortment of fabrics such as microfibers or cotton wool, coconut pulp, etc. Sheet masks that are specially designed for dry skin are made from synthetic fiber. This is so because they are extremely absorbent and can hold high amounts of water in them.
Now, what exactly do these sheet masks do? This question might be troubling a lot of you so allow me to resolve this conflict for you.
As I mentioned above these sheet masks are made by soaking them into a highly nutritious liquid that is serum is the main reason why it is useful. This serum consists of beneficial Ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and vitamins. Now, these ingredients are highly beneficial for the skin. They help in providing the much-needed moisture, glow, etc. In these masks, the ingredients are present in liquidized form hence extending the time frame that ingredients require to penetrate deep down into the skin. So this is one of the major benefits of serum sheet masks and the rest I’ll be mentioning in my other section.
⚫INGREDIENTS IN THE SERUM
Serum sheet masks are made for many different purposes. Like some deal with dry skin, some with oily, some for normal, and depending on the skin type the ingredients are added to it. However some common ingredients are aloe vera, vitamin C, and if we consider some unusual ones then pearl, snail extract, and seaweed.
It also contains some chemical preservatives to prevent bacteria and fungal infections. (caution- before using any sheet mask do consult your dermatologists because of the presence of chemical preservatives). Chemical preservatives such as paraben, phenoxyethanol. Moving to our other section which will be dealing with the benefits of serum sheet masks.
⚫BENEFITS OF SERUM SHEET MASKS.
The serum sheets masks are easy to apply and also provide enhancing effects to our skin in a very less time. As I mentioned above serum is filled with beneficial ingredients such as vitamins and minerals. They help us in not only providing the much-needed moisture but also some of them claim that they even brighten your skin up. However, this is not enough. A list of few benefits is as below.
The winter seasons are harsh towards our skin. They not only make our skin rough but also take the moisture away. This is where these masks step in. Serum sheet masks are excellent agents of hydration. Since the beneficial Ingredients are in liquidized form hence it becomes easier for our skin to soak them up.
2.Boosting skin qualities
If you read the ingredient section you will see that these masks contain a lot of ingredients that can provide glow to our skin. Hence depending on the type of your skin, the mask you choose has ingredients that help in clearing the complexion and maintaining skin tone with a great glow.
3. Easy to apply and is pocket friendly
Allow me to quote myself ‘You only need to apply, take off or pat in extra serum’. All you need to do is apply it, keep it and
remove it without even the hassle of cleaning up. Moreover, they are very economical. Different brands provide different price ranges, you can choose according to your price range, and also don’t forget to look at the ingredients before using.
⚫HOW TO USE SHEET MASKS ?
Using a sheet mask is a very simple process. Since these masks are packed individually hence there is no difficulty in using them.
All you need to do is take the sheet masks out and apply them to your skin for around 20 mins. (Read the pack before using).
“These sheets are universally sized that fits all face structures and are suggested to be placed from the forehead while patting your way softly while coming down on your face”.
Use around 2-3 times in a month to get effective benefits from serum sheet masks.
- Do not leave the mask for more than 20 minutes if you feel irritation remove it immediately.
- Apply sheet masks on a clean washed face. The serum will be more effective on a clean face rather than the one which is already covered with impurities.
- Do not wash your face immediately after applying the masks. If you feel the serum is not absorbed in the 20 mins interval you can also use the method of pat and dry. But let it dry only then apply something else on your face.
- If you think that there is serum left in the mask even after you have used it for the mentioned time, you can also squeeze the serum out of the mask and apply it on your hands and arms.

Concluding it, I would like to say that the only disadvantages to this product is that they only target the purpose of nourishing. They are not the best exfoliating agents of the skin when compared with paste-masks. Moreover, if the mask is of low quality then the serum tends to evaporate easily.
However, if we use the right brand and choose the product with the help of our dermatologist then this product can do wonders and benifits of serum sheet masks can be many
