If your clients crave more radiant, plumper, brightened, luminous, more youthful looking skin in a flash, then it’s time to incorporate sheet masks into your services. There’s a reason celebrities and influencers love the Instagrammable trend of the sheet mask. A relative newcomer to the beauty industry, they are as essential to a night out as hot rollers were not too long ago. With today’s advanced fabrics, premium ingredients and increasing popularity, these quick treatments offer an appealing add-on service for any spa professional.
Satin Smooth recently unveiled LUX Foil Sheet Masks for the face and under eye. These foil-backed masks are triple layered, with soft touch white tencel fabric to provide a cool touch, while the foil forms a barrier to seal in body heat and deliver the optimal amount of serum to the skin for superior results. Available in gold foil to nourish and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and silver foil to brighten and moisturize dull, dry skin.
Follow these easy steps from Satin Smooth to help clients fight the signs of aging and create radiant skin in 20 minutes.
Prep the skin correctly. Applying a sheet mask seems pretty straight forward, however, with the ease of the sheet mask, it’s easy to forget it requires preparation for best results. Always apply to a clean face. Be sure to thoroughly cleanse and dry the skin before applying the mask. Do not apply any other moisturizers or serums.
Remove the mask from packaging, and apply the fabric side directly onto the face. The foil side should not touch the skin. Make sure the mask totally adheres to the face by making sure the cut-outs for the eyes, nose and mouth are matched appropriately. Then smooth down the mask with an outward motion, limiting as many creases as possible. Remove the mask after 20 minutes, and do not rinse!
What you do after you take it off is just as important. Do not wipe the excess serum off the skin or wash the face afterward. To get the full benefits, and to take total advantage of the concentrated ingredients, allow absorption of the remaining serum by gently patting the skin with your hand. If there is extra serum in the packaging, apply to neck and chest for additional benefits.
