‘Oily’, ‘prone to breakouts’ and ‘irritated’ are some of the common words you’d use to describe your skin on hot and humid days. Creams, sunscreens, moisturizers and face masks can help but the sticky product and tedious process can prove to be a bummer. Introduce these on-the-go sheet masks to your beauty routine to fight your summer skin’s foes.
1. TO HYDRATE
Summer calls for more hydration. Apart from maintaining an adequate water level in your body, it’s important to pick hydrating products to quench your skin’s thirst.
Ingredients to look for: Hyaluronic acid, hydrogel, honey
2. TO REJUVENATE
If your skin is looking and feeling a bit meh, pamper and revitalize it while removing dead skin cells – you’ll wake up with a smooth and fresh face, ready for your close-up.
Ingredients to look for: Charcoal, egg whites, fruit extracts
3. TO BRIGHTEN
Uneven and dull skin and blemishes can be soothed and brightened with an aloe vera or vitamin C mask. Simply pop on a sheet mask for 20 minutes and rub the excess into your skin when done.
Ingredients to look for: Vitamin C, ginseng, ceramide, aloe vera
4. TO PURIFY
Heat and humidity can cause pores to look larger and make your skin break out if you don’t cleanse scrupulously twice a day. Add a sheet mask to your routine for a boost – look for one that also soothes inflammation.
Ingredients to look for: Antioxidants, salicylic acid, tea tree oil, niacinamide
