Every day, I wash, tone, use serum, and apply moisturizer to keep my skin healthy. On the weekend, I use a mask to hydrate and moisturize, and mid week I use a clay mask or a microdermabrasion scrub to exfoliate. Lately, I’ve been using sheet masks because they are so easy to make and work well with my skin.



You can’t walk down the beauty aisle in any drug store without seeing a display of sheet masks. They are inspired by the Korean beauty craze that’s becoming popular in the United States and all over the world. Sheet masks are a cotton or muslin sheet of cloth that are cut to fit your face with nose and eye holes cut out of the fabric.

Most masks work by exfoliating your skin or cleaning your pores so they appear smaller. Sheet masks work a little different. They usually have anti-aging products or skin serums for hydration.

The liquid in a sheet mask is water based, so it evaporates quickly. Without the fabric sheet, you wouldn’t get as many benefits from the products because they evaporate too quickly. The sheet stops evaporation, so the products can get absorbed deeper into your skin.

Another benefit to using sheet masks is that you can switch them up without a big commitment to one product. Sometimes I need a mask for acne, and other times I need one for hydration. With a sheet mask, you can use a different kind each week without having several bottles on the shelf.

I use a sheet mask about once a week. I’ve seen them as low as $2 per mask, but good ones cost $10 or more. Cheaper masks don’t always work well because they evaporate too quickly even with the sheet of fabric or they use low quality ingredients that just won’t help your skin.

If you use a $10 mask once a week, you’ll spend $40 a month just on masks. I bought a pack of 100 sheet masks for under $10 shipped! At less than 10 cents per mask, it’s a significant savings.



Ingredients Used in This DIY Sheet Mask for Sensitive Skin


Chamomile Tea


Chamomile tea is the base of this DIY sheet mask for sensitive skin. Chamomile is known for being calming, but it also has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Chamomile can also cleanse and soothe your skin.

Milk


Raw milk is the best type of milk to use topically because heating milk destroys some of the enzymes that help your skin and changes the fat structure. If you don’t have raw milk, you can use any type of milk or even milk powder.

Raw milk is rich in alpha hydroxy acids, antioxidants, calcium, and B vitamins. It’s a wonderful moisturizer for sensitive skin because it won’t irritate your skin.

Oatmeal


Oatmeal is has antioxidants to help fight the signs of aging. Oats are a natural way to treat inflammation and reduce itching. They also help moisturize your skin.


Honey


Honey is wonderful for most skin types. It’s naturally antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. It naturally moisturizes your skin without making it oily, and the enzymes in honey help exfoliate the top layer of skin so it reach deeper in your skin.



Lavender Essential Oil


Lavender essential oil is considered one of the most gentle oils for the skin. It’s said to be soothing and can be beneficial even for skin affected by eczema or psoriasis.

Sheet Masks


I use these cotton sheet masks.  There are 100 in a pack, so it comes out to less than 10 cents per mask!

Recipe: DIY Sheet Mask For Sensitive Skin


Ingredients:




Tools and Supplies:




Instructions:

Step #1


Start by brewing chamomile tea. I used one tea bag in 8 ounces of water and let the tea bag sit in the water until cool so it was more concentrated

Meanwhile, grind the oats in a food processor or clean coffee mill.

Step #2


In a shallow bowl, combine the brewed chamomile tea, milk, ground oats, honey, and lavender essential oil. Stir well.



Step #3


Dip the sheet mask into the mixture and let soak for a minute. Pull the mask out and let drip dry. You want it to be wet but not dripping, so you may have to squeeze out some of the liquid.


Step #4


Open the mask completely and place on your face. Smooth out any wrinkles so the mask is laying flat on your skin.

Step #5


Let sit for 30 minutes. Remove the mask and discard. Rinse your face and follow with your favorite moisturizer if desired.

Discard leftover tea and milk solution. You can only use this mask twice a week, but the tea and milk will only last about a day.

Since you will have extra liquid, why not grab a friend and have an at home spa day?
