Laying a formula-soaked mask over one’s face seems like an innately 2000s concept designed for the
ultimate humblebrag and ironic (sort of?) selfie while still imbuing one’s skin with benefits (win, win!).
And, with self-isolation and more days at home, has there ever been a time like the present to luxuriate
your face in a serum-saturated mask?
But, this skincare innovation has actually been around since the 1800s; what has changed though
is what these sheet masks can actually deliver. They refresh and wake-up the skin, but now, they also can
do so much more.
It can be overwhelming, so we’ve cast our eyes over our plethora of sheet mask options at MECCA to edit
to break down what does what, and which ones are right for you.
Add a jolt of moisture and radiance to your skin with a hydrating skin
mask that’s packed with essential fatty acids; think of it as like a glass of water for your skin. A
consistent favourite is Tatcha’s Luminous Dewy Skin Mask which is drenched with botanical oils, Japanese superfoods
like fermented green tea, vitamin E and essential fatty acids to deliver on the dewy complexion it
promises on the packet. And we can’t talk about hydrating masks without going past Go-To’s Transformazing Mask which is a
top-seller at MECCA, infused with Australian ingredients such as Kakadu plum and finger lime extracts.
You can just tell when your skin needs some help in the collagen
department, and with glowing 5-star reviews worldwide, you know this rose gold pick from 111SKIN
will do the trick. Encouraging the skin’s natural restorative processes, this clever mask quickly restores
skin to its youthful appearance. Casually infused with 24 carat gold, rosa damascus extract and silk amino
acids, this decadent mask leaves your skin so glowy it's basically incandescent.
Most of our lockdown diets are probably heavy on the comfort food, and,
it’s showing on our skin. Karuna's
CleanMUD Charcoal Face Mask is formulated with
charcoal-infused mud and hyaluronic acid to thoroughly detoxify pores without sucking the moisture out of
your skin. Expect clearer, more balanced, bouncier skin in as little as 10 minutes.
It’s seen better days, so opt for a brightening mask when your skin is at
this stage. Look for one packed with ingredients like niacinamide, vitamin C and
antioxidants, or all of the above, like this C+ Collagen Biocelluose Brightening Treatment Mask from New York dermatologist Dr Dennis Gross. While a
single use will amp up the skin, using it regularly will counteract target dark spots, unevenness,
discolouration and even deep-set wrinkles.
