The Sheet Masks you wanna keep handy all winter long

The Sheet Masks you wanna keep handy all winter long


By Carolina Malis


You know how they tell you it’s very important to water a plant in order for it to grow bright, crips and healthy? Well, something similar happens with our skin. In order for all the products we apply over it to work we first need to make sure it’s healthy enough to be able to absorb all those ingredients.


But how do we keep our skin healthy? I’m not talking exfoliation methods, cleansing or sun protection but actually keeping our skin nourished enough for it to feel and look young. Well, there’s plenty of methods out there for sure but one of my absolute favorites is also Instagram’s favorite: Sheet Masks. You’ve probably heard of them already - or seen plenty of people voguing to them on IG photos. These face-shaped fabric masks are soaked in nutritional formulas, some for brightening, some for hydration, some for acne, and many, many more skin struggles. But the sheet mask market out there is HUGE, (like… capital letters huge). If you’ve ever been to a beauty store you’ve probably run into many of them and wondered: ok, but how do I pick the right one for me?


Truth is there’s no harmful sheet mask. Some of them may be better than others but basically we all can try all of them, but the thing is there’s some that may help you with some skin concerns you’ve been battling for a long time while other will purely hydrate. During winter time for example there’s two kinds of sheet masks I love using: Elasticity-enhancing and anti-aging ones. Both types are great to fight the stress skin goes through during colds months, reason why I always keep some of these by my side.


Now, of course there’s some sheet masks with more powerful ingredients and formulas than others, reason why is always good to find a collection containing a variety that can help you go through all skin-periods. SURMEDIC is for me one of those brands. They carry a decent amount of masks for every skin concert you can imagine, but there’s two in particular I’m obsessed with and I wanna share the secret with you.


Vital-Collagen Mask


This god send is a must for me every time I feel like my skin is going into stress mode. You know when you spend the day out in the cold and then go back home feeling like a mummy? Well, this mask can help with that little syndrome. The collagen contained in it not only helps recover skin’s elasticity but also delivers intense hydration so skin feels and looks younger while staying hydrated. Its formula also helps with fine lines and wrinkles, filling them out so skin looks smoother.


I personally prefer to use this one during morning time, before wearing makeup as it also kinda works as a primer. Best part? It’s hypoallergenic so it suits every skin type without being irritating (you go sensitive skin peeps!)


Age-Control Multi Vita Mask


If you’re looking to recover that lost brightness, this is the mask you need in your life. Formulated with a multivitamin ampoule essence plus some added niacinamide and adenosine, this mask (ready for it?): revitalizes, nourishes, brightens, regenerates and firms skin. I know, a true multitasker.


This hypoallergenic mask is perfect whenever you feel like your skincare routine needs a little extra hand. This one I rather use during night time as I feel it keeps working while I sleep, waking up to brighter and calmer skin every single time I use it. Another great fact about this one is how it helps dim down dark spots after some time using it. Not gonna say you’ll get rid of all spots just by using this mask because I’d be lying but if you’re under an hyperpigmentation treatment this mask is a great complement.


Do you have a set of favortiese sheet masks you like to keep handy?

Meet your fast - yet effective - spot care essentials for winter

When talking acne there’s a few things we need to keep in mind: first off, we can all have it, and for that same reason we all need to know how to keep it under control once it decides to show up. For the longest time of my life I had to struggle with having no idea how acne really worked. I went from dermatologists to dermatologist thinking they were finally gonna share the big secret behind how to get rid of it for good, but it never happened, or at least not until I turned to K-Beauty.

Sunscreen and Aging: Here’s why these are and item

You know when you joke about things but deep down you’re being serious and just hoping for someone to join you on your crazy ideas? Well, that’s me talking about wanting to create a sunscreen cult. I’m the sunscreen lady. I’m allergic to cats so cat lady wasn’t and option for me, so sunscreen it is. Since I learned how fundamental it was to wear it every single day of my life in order to have good skin I never went back. It’s a long term relationship and I know it will last forever.


NEO I TRENDING <br>The answer behind long-lasting hydration? Hyaluronic Acid!

The answer behind long-lasting hydration? Hyaluronic Acid!

You hear the term everywhere. From skincare, to supplements and even some makeup brands are using it lately. Hyaluronic acid is without a doubt part of the skincare royalty, and there’s a reason why.

Hydration is one of the main signs of a healthy complexion. In a way, all we do for our skin has a focus on keeping it hydrated. When dehydration takes over, all the other skin struggles we could be facing get worse, reason why in a nutshell, we can’t get rid of acne, wrinkles, dark spots, rosacea, eczema or any other concern if our skin is not hydrated, and here’s where Hyaluronic Acid plays a lead role.

The two hero-moisturizers that will save your skin this winter

And just like that, winter is here once again and not only my wardrobe noticed it but my skin did too. I don't know about you I'm already running through basically a whole bottle of toner a month and don't even get me started on the sometimes-insane amounts of mist I apply throughout the day. Totally #guilty of using it every single minute of my day.
