Aloha! The Hanalei Company is answering the top 12 questions about sheet masks. In the world of skincare, sheet masks are all the rage these days. They’re trendy, they’re a skin rejuvenating game-changer, and they’re fun to use. If you’ve never used one as part of your skincare routine, you might have tons of questions about whether sheet masks are right for you as part of your routine. You might be curious about the ingredients, or even about how to use a sheet mask to start. You’ll sure to be convinced that a sheet mask is just what your skincare routine has been missing all along.
1. First of all, what is a sheet mask?
A sheet mask is just about what it sounds like—treatment for your skin in a sheet that you leave on your face to provide your skin with tons of long-lasting benefits. Hanalei carries a cruelty-free10 sheet mask set that comes with 3 Papaya Masks, 3 Pineapple Masks, 2 Pear Masks, and 2 Lychee Masks. Each one contains plenty of natural Hawaiian botanicals, and depending on the main ingredient, helps to hydrate, brighten, moisturize, or soothe your skin. To use, simply lay the mask over your face for approximately 15-20 minutes, and when you’re done, massage any remaining serum into your skin for lasting benefits.
2. Can you use a sheet mask every day?
Absolutely! The only requirement is that you listen to your skin, and use the mask you that best suits your needs at that time. Using a sheet mask daily can actually help hydrate your skin in the long run, and provide plenty of lasting benefits for your face. And with Hanalei’s set of skin treatment masks, you’ll have plenty of benefits to choose from so that you can give your skin exactly what it needs, when it needs it.
3. What is the best sheet mask for my skin?
Each sheet mask has a different benefit for your skin, so it’s important to use the one that would be the most beneficial at that time. All of Hanalei’s sheet masks contain natural Hawaiian Noni, known for providing anti-aging benefits, as well as helping to moisturize your skin, but the other ingredients in the mask will determine which one your skin needs most. Hanalei’s Papaya Masks are fantastic for hydrating your skin naturally, while the Pineapple Masks are best used when you want to brighten up your skin. When you use a Pear Mask, you’re allowing your skin to benefit from a natural moisturizer, and the Lychee Masks are known for soothing irritated skin.
4. Do you have to wash your face before you use a sheet mask?
Yes! A sheet mask will provide the most benefits when applied to a clean face. It’s definitely best to wash your face using either Hanalei’s Charcoal Powder Face Cleanser or Papaya Enzyme Powder Face Cleanser, so that you can get the ultimate benefits from the sheet mask you plan to use. Each cleanser has its own special benefits, so make sure you’re using the one best for your skin—Papaya Enzyme for brightening, exfoliating, and moisturizing, and Charcoal for exfoliating, cleansing, and balancing.
5. Do you have to wash your face after you use a sheet mask?
It’s actually best that you do not wash your face after using a sheet mask. Washing your face afterwards will remove any remaining serum that’s meant to benefit your skin. Instead, gently massage any leftover serum into your face and let your skin absorb its natural benefits.
6. Do you use them in the morning or at night?
This is really up to personal preference. If you use a sheet mask in the morning though, make sure you give yourself plenty of time to absorb the nutrients before applying makeup. If you choose to use your sheet mask at night, you’ll be giving your skin plenty of time to take in all of the serum it can while you’re asleep.
7. Do you moisturize after you use a sheet mask?
It’s fantastic for your skin if you moisturize after using a sheet mask, but make sure you’re not using just any moisturizer! Moisturizing really helps you to take all of the benefits of the sheet mask in, and using Hanalei’s Island Aloe Gel to moisturize is a great next step. The Island Aloe Gel contains pure aloe vera, as well as Papaya Enzyme and Hawaiian Noni, all of which work to balance your skin tone, moisturize, brighten, and reduce signs of aging.
8. Are sheet masks good for oily skin?
Absolutely! There truly is a sheet mask for everyone. The only downside is that if you have oily or acne-prone skin, you might need to pay more attention to the benefit you’d be gaining from the sheet mask. For example, using a brightening Pineapple Mask might benefit you more than a moisturizing Pear Mask but even oily skin needs moisture.
9. Will sheet masks clog my pores?
Of course not, but if you’re prone to acne, it’s best to be conscious of what ingredients you’re putting on your skin and use products best for your skin type. Some sheet masks do work to minimize your pores in a healthy way, but shouldn’t clog your pores up.
10. How long should you leave a sheet mask on?
The ideal amount of time to use a sheet mask is 15-20 minutes. This amount of time allows you to fit a sheet mask into any daily routine, but still lets your skin take in as many skin benefits from the natural botanicals as it needs to reap those beautiful benefits!
11. Do sheet masks really work?
At this point, you might be wondering if using a sheet mask is truly worth all the hype, and the answer is YES! Sheet masks truly do benefit your skin. When you use a sheet mask, you’re allowing your skin to absorb more nutrients and skin changing ingredients than it would if you had simply washed your face and moisturized. It’s the best and easiest way to allow your skin to gain have a day at the spa but from the comfort of our home.
12. Are they cruelty-free?
Compassionate skincare is becoming more and more important to consumers like you, so you’re probably wondering whether these sheet masks are cruelty-free. The answer is yes! All of Hanalei’s products are produced without animal testing, as we simply don’t believe that such practices are necessary and we love animals.
Sheet masks are quickly becoming an important part of many people’s daily skincare routines. They’re fantastic for hydrating, brightening, soothing, and moisturizing your skin. When you use a sheet mask, you’re allowing your skin to reap amazing benefits, naturally.
