In recent years, sheet masks have become the go-to for at-home pampering. But which sheet masks are best for anti-aging? There are plenty of great options out there, but if you’re searching for something that really packs a punch, hydrogel masks are the way to go. Keep reading to learn more about the cooling, soothing, and hydrating benefits and why you need to try one for yourself.
What are hydrogel sheet masks?
Many sheet masks are typically made with cotton or paper, but hydrogel masks are different. These masks are made from a gel texture (usually bio-cellulose) for a cooling feel. (Pro tip: stash them in the refrigerator for even more soothing benefits!) These anti-aging masks also usually contain hyaluronic acid and ceramides for an extra hydrating boost.
Because these masks aren’t made from cotton or paper, they can be a little tricky to apply. You’ll notice a jelly feel and can be a little slippery. Just be patient with yourself and understand that you may have to practice a bit before you achieve a seamless application. Fortunately, the benefits far outweigh the application process.
