You might be wondering what a sheet mask is and how you use it, but don’t worry. This article will break it down for you step-by-step so that you can get the perfect skincare routine in no time!
What is a sheet mask?
Sheet masks are single-use microfiber cloths soaked in a skincare product. Sheet masks generally contain more essence than regular cotton or hydrogel masks because the cloth soaks up the extra liquid. Sheet masks are preferred over other types of masks due to their ability to conform closely to facial contours, even in the eye and mouth areas.
How to choose a sheet mask for your skin type?
The best way to structure your selection is by first identifying your skincare concerns- whether that be dryness, acne, or evening out complexion or maybe you just want something relaxing and fun! From there, choose either a mask that’s formulated for your skin type or a mask whose ingredient list contains the skincare ingredients you’re looking for.
How to use a sheet mask
Step 1: Cleanse your skin
Step 2: Place the sheet mask on your face and pat down any areas where the sheet mask is lifted up
Step 3: Take a selfie and post it to Instagram because you’re too excited. Lol (optional) and relax for 20-30 minutes or until dry. Be mindful of not moving around excessively as that can mess up the fit and also keep your pets away from you as they’ll find the extra essence very interesting.
Step 4: Dispose of the mask and pat the extra essence into your face.
