Breast Sheet Masks Are the Beauty World’s Newest Obsession
By Danielle Fontana , Associate Editor |
While they’ve only begun to pick up steam recently in the U.S., these bust masks have long been popular in—you guessed it, the skin care powerhouse of Korea—and why not? While they seem outlandish at first thought, it makes sense: Our breasts should be cared for and nourished, and these sheet masks do the trick. There are a variety of different formulas that aim to tackle different concerns—think anti-aging, minimizing lines and wrinkles and lifting to enhance the appearance of your chest. There are even lace versions to keep them firm and elastic.
But, like any mask or product you apply on your skin, there are major precautions you should practice and some key ingredients to avoid—like parabens and phthalates, which Washington, D.C., dermatologist Tina Alster, MD, explains are commonly found within personal care products and have been found to disrupt the endocrine and reproductive systems. "They have also been associated with various malignancies such as breast cancer. Long-term or excessive exposure to these substances should be avoided."
