In a market that is saturated with face mask options, time and time again I find myself returning to the Lapcos sheet mask. You're probably already familiar with Lapcos masks; among a sea of options, their simple and colorful packaging make them difficult to miss. And their wide range of products tackle a myriad of skin issues, from dryness to acne and everything in between. Whatever skin concerns you're struggling with, there is a Lapcos mask that can help.
What sets Lapcos masks apart from the rest of the face masks out there? First, Lapcos masks are slightly oversized compared with other brands. That may not seem like a big deal, but trust that the size of the mask can make the difference between a great and not-so-great experience. Another important detail is that the cutouts are just the right size; not so small that they irritate the eyes, nose, or mouth, and not so big that you still feel like you're gaining the benefits of the mask and serum on the most facial area.
Speaking of the serum, Lapcos uses a carefully curated list of natural ingredients that are easily absorbed and gentle enough for those with sensitive skin. Bonus: Their products are cruelty free! Lapcos masks are perfect for travelling (trust me - try them on a flight) and make a great gift or stocking stuffer. I love to use them before a special occasion, as part of my "treat-yourself" routine, or to de-stress after a long day.
The way you use a sheet mask counts, and I've landed on a handful of tips to get the most out of your experience. First, consider storing your masks in the fridge. Not only does the cooler temp feel extra soothing, I've found that it also helps to calm inflammation.
Secondly, never waste any product. If there is excess serum in the package, I'll massage it into my face using an upward motion before placing the mask on. By applying the excess serum before you apply the mask, you're optimizing absorption. Next, the order in which you apply your skincare counts. The generally agreed upon order is to cleanse first, followed by a toner, and then to apply the sheet mask. And you don't need to wash your face afterwards; simply massage the leftover serum into your face and go on about your day!
No matter how tempting, only keep the mask on for the suggested amount of time. You may think that the longer you leave the mask on the more benefits you stand to gain. On the contrary, as the mask dries it may cause your skin to lose moisture. Lastly, try applying a sheet mask while you're in the tub. The steam from a bath feels like it's increasing the moisturizing effects of the mask.
