Understanding the causes of skin ageing is the first step to a good skincare routine. The second? Knowing that prevention is better than the cure.
Although ageing is a beautiful process, skin ageing is something that most of us are trying to delay. Our skin’s ageing is the product of a combination of things from sun exposure to a poor diet and poor hydration, stress, tiredness, pollution, tobacco, alcohol and of course, time.
When it comes to skincare and ageing, prevention and preservation really is better than the cure. Prioritising preventive measures in your skincare routine can save you time, effort and your skin's long-term health.
Here we share some of the reasons why sheet masks are our go-to product to help slow down our skin’s ageing process so we can enjoy a youthful and glowing complexion.
Provide Intense Hydration
We can’t say it enough but one of the most important factors in maintaining youthful skin is hydration. Sheet masks are designed to provide an intense boost of hydration which helps to plump up the skin, improve the skin’s overall elasticity and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The sheets also act as a barrier to external factors to prevent the serum from evaporating into the air when you’re wearing the mask so your cells can absorb all the mask serum.
Targeted Delivery of Active Ingredients
Using sheet masks that are made from a combination of high-quality materials like semi gel cellulose, will ensure targeted delivery of the mask serum deep into your skin cells. The best anti-ageing sheet masks are the ones that feature hydrating, detoxifying and anti-inflammatory active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, glycerine and avocado oil. Using sheet masks that are drenched in these properties will stimulate your skin’s natural production of collagen, replenish the firmness and elasticity of your skin and will help to retain your skin’s natural moisture levels.
Quick and Easy to Use
Unlike traditional wash-off face masks that can be messy and take hours to work, sheet masks are ready to go straight from the packet and really easy to apply, making them ideal for people with busy lifestyles. After just 20 minutes of wearing a sheet mask, you’ll be able to see visible results and there’s no post-mask clean-up needed. Just pat the excess serum into your hydrated and glowing face and don’t forget your neck too.
A Natural Way to Enhance your Beauty
We’re huge advocates of natural beauty at GLIST so we always suggest looking for natural ways to prevent the signs of ageing. Sheet masks that feature powerful formulas made from active ingredients like polyglutamic acid and hyaluronic acid intensely hydrate the surface and deeper layers of your skin. This means they can replace the need for cosmetic procedures, making them a more natural and cost-effective way to achieve a smoother and firmer complexion.
Suitable For All Skin Types
Good quality sheet masks that are made from clean and natural ingredients are gentle on the skin which makes them suitable for all skin types, even people with sensitive skin. This means that you can start protecting your skin from the ageing process at any age.
You can never be too young to start prioritising preventative measures in your skincare routine. Wearing sunscreen every day, staying hydrated and maintaining a consistent skincare routine are also great ways to preserve your skin.
Using products that feature a high concentration of antioxidants such as persea gratissima (avocado oil), jania rubens extract (red algae) and bacillus ferment (probiotic peptide) are proven to slow down the skin’s ageing process, so we suggest adding the GLIST Anti-Wrinkle Reviving Mask into your skincare routine at least two times a week. And remember, the more consistent you are, the more your skin will reap the benefits.
