As social media-savvy celebrities can attest, a facial mask is a convenient and time-saving method to pamper your skin without the hefty cost of a facial. Whether it's the traditional cream or a mum-style serum-soaked sheet variety, making time once a week for a relaxing pamper session could see you gain Hollywood skin in as little as fifteen minutes.
While sheet masks, which are packed full of vitamins, amino acids, and minerals are extremely popular, do keep in mind that they're not designed to replace traditional masks and they won't exfoliate or cleanse deeply. And those with acne-prone skin should test the mask on a section of your face, preferably the side of your cheek, 24 hours beforehand, before proceeding with a full mask.
