5 Sheet Masks For When Your Skin Is Really Freaking Out
Sheet masks. Sundays are just not the same without them. Why we love them even more? The cotton sheets act like a quick facial, pumping your skin full of vitamins, amino acids and minerals. They also stick to your face, allowing time for those ingredients to really penetrate the skin – which explains your suppler, plumper, more radiant looking skin after just one use. Here are our standout favourites.
