What is the Difference Between a Sheet Mask and Face Mask?

Sometimes the terms sheet mask and face mask are used interchangeably; however, each carries its own perks that set them apart from the other. There are a few similarities between the two, such as hydrating your skin and daily cleansing, but there are a number of factors that differentiate them.

Either way, using a sheet or face mask on your skin regularly will continue to complement your skin routine. Seoul Mamas wants to help you decide what you want for your skin, so in today’s blog, you will find what each mask is and when to use them.

Sheet Mask

Sheet masks are thin, pre-cut masks that are soaked in serum and natural ingredients and then simply applied to your face. These masks are typically made out of paper, fibers, or thin gels to hydrate the skin. They are designed to fit neatly on your face as they have slits around your eyes and nose to cover all areas evenly. With a sheet mask, all you need to do is remove the paper mask from the packaging and apply it to your face! These nutrient-packed skincare products leave your skin feeling fresh!

When to Use a Sheet Mask

Normally, sheet masks are viewed as the cherry on top of any skincare routine. These single sheets give your face and skin a break after a long day, opening up your pores and hydrating the skin. Each mask should only be applied for 10 – 20 minutes, which is about the time it takes the paper to dry out. If you suffer from dry skin, and consistently notice irritated skin at the end of the day, try a daily sheet mask.

Face Mask

There are several types of face masks to pick from when considering adding something new to your skincare routine. From cream masks to exfoliating masks, there is something for every skin type. A face mask is usually applied as a thicker coat onto the skin directly. They typically have a thicker quality to them and require even application, unlike a sheet mask. Depending on what you want out of your face mask will help you decide on which to purchase next.

When to Use a Face Mask

After deciding on what face mask you want to apply, you will need to know the ideal time to use it. This timing can vary depending on what your face needs or how sensitive your skin is. For a deep cleansing face mask, you will want to apply it right before you go to bed; however, with a hydrating face mask, they are best for daily use! Face masks help to open up pores, making them a significant contribution to your skincare routine.
