I love a good at-home spa treatment. Being able to pamper yourself in your comfy clothes (with some wine) at home is just the perfect way to end the day.
One of my favorite mini spa treatments is a good sheet mask. Not only is it a quick way to get in a little self-care, it's amazingly simple and doesn't take much effort - which is just the type of thing I need after a long day. The fact that I don't have to spend the time washing it off afterwards makes it my ideal 'treat-yo-self' skin care.
...And let's be real, though super effective, sheet masks look ridiculous - so I definitely wont be leaving the couch.
So how to pick a good sheet mask? This one can be tricky. There are OH SO MANY options that boast amazing results. I've tried everything from drug store snags to pricey options and while I've found a few favorites, the WHEN mask line is one that consistently impresses me.
So what are WHEN masks? The company was started by a Korean healthcare specialist who brought together a dermatologist, a biologist, and a botanist to create skincare that was gentle and effective. His goal was to bring quality skincare from spas & dermatologists into modern, busy lifestyles. The result was skincare that has the good stuff - like natural moisturizers and protecting nutrients. I'd say he did a pretty good job.
Why are we obsessed with Korean skincare right now? An easy answer is that Koreans are known for their glowing skin and 10-step routines and if that's what it takes, we want it. Another reason might be that when it comes to talking beauty, the answer often seems to come from some magical concoction that's made it's way from the East. Oil cleansers, brightening serums, and oh so many other products you probably use everyday have origins in the East. They probably know what they're doing, but at the very least they've been up to it for 1000's of years.
