The Ultimate Guide to Sustainable Sheet Masking
There is no better way to ring in the new year than with new products! We are celebrating the arrival of two new sheet masks and couldn’t be more excited to share them with you. Now you can show some love to your skin and the environment with Sukin’s Biodegradable Sheet Masks. Our masks are made from natural cotton fibers making them 100% biodegradable. Once you have finished using your mask, simply bury it in the ground, and after 6 months the mask will have completed its decomposition process. In addition to being biodegradable, we only use one type of plastic without any aluminum lining in our packaging making it fully recyclable through soft plastic recycling streams, compared to our competitors, whose sheet masks often feature 3 or more kinds of plastic and must be thrown in the trash.
Sheet masks are a fun, easy way to deliver hydrating and nourishing ingredients to your skin so we’ve put together a list of the best ways to integrate sheet masks into your skin care routine.
- To receive all the benefits of a sheet mask, we recommend using Sukin Foaming Facial Cleanser on your skin first. This will get rid of all the dirt and impurities on your skin, so your cells are ready to soak up all the vitamins and ingredients in the mask serum. Remember to always use lukewarm water to rinse your face and then gently pat your skin dry with a soft towel.
- After cleansing, applying the Sukin Hydrating Mist Toner will help prepare your pores for sheet masking. Think of your toner like a primer before you apply your foundation. A toner balances your skin’s pH levels and helps open your pores. Now your skin is balanced and ready to absorb the nourishing ingredients found in the sheet mask.
- Now you can apply your sheet mask! Don’t be surprised when there is excess liquid dripping, that is just extra serum the mask is soaked in. To maximize your sheet mask benefits, you want the mask to cling directly to your face as much as possible. If there are any wrinkles in the mask, try to smooth them out by starting at your forehead and slowly working your way down you face. Using a facial roller is a great way to eliminate any bumps in the mask.
- Remove the sheet mask after the recommended amount of time. Pat in the excess serum with your hands to maximize the sheet mask benefits. Then apply Sukin Facial Moisturizer and Sukin Antioxidant Eye Serum to lock in all the nutrients and hydration benefits into your skin.
