Not all sheet masks are made using the same material. In fact, there are a few different kinds such as cotton and bio-cellulose. Many of us are more familiar with the former but the latter, too, gets our vote for being super effective in infusing our skin with moisture (plus, it adheres really well to our facial contours). Apart from the mentioned two, we are also loving hydrogel masks.
As its name suggests, hydrogel is a gel that is able to hold large amounts of liquids. It is commonly used to treat burns as it speeds up the healing process while cooling the affected area. Additionally, it acts as a barrier to protect the wound from inflammation and any growth of bacteria. When used on our faces as sheet masks, it is able to hold more moisture than regular cotton sheet masks thus, allowing our skin to absorb more nutrients and also boost hydration levels. It also clings and adheres like a second skin while creating a layer between the skin and the environment, ensuring that our skin is constantly protected.
