Not a few people keep various kinds of sheet masks in their cupboards. Likewise, the trend of one day and one mask that South Korean people often apply.
But apparently, there are still many who don't maximize the benefits of sheet masks. Here are some tips for using sheet mask so that the results can be more optimal.
Pay attention to the ingredients
Usually, the mask pack clearly shows the content that is the main focus. To find out which one fits you, you must first identify your skin. If your skin is dull, you can use masks that contain such as vitamin C, Niacinamide, pearl, and mulberry fruit extract.
Meanwhile, to soothe acne-prone and oily skin, you can use a sheet mask containing tea tree or green tea to add antioxidants and control oil levels in the skin. For dry skin, sheet masks containing avocado, ceramide, collagen, and hyaluronic acid are highly recommended. Meanwhile, for normal skin, you can use fruit ingredients such as pomegranate, acai berry, blueberry, which can hydrate and revitalize the skin.
Cleanse your face before applying the mask
The main requirement before wearing a mask is to clean your face. After all, your face must be clean even if you're home all day. Due to the nature of a sheet mask, which is light and easy to absorb, it will be difficult to work properly if there is still dirt on our face. Dust particles and pollution that still stick to the face will interfere with absorption. If not cleaned, it can cause unwanted pimples. Hence, you should wash your face before applying the mask. You can also use toner or serum first before using a sheet mask so that the serum can absorb more deeply.
Please take off the sheet mask while it's still damp
If some of you still think that you have to use a sheet mask until it dries, that's a big mistake. The maximum duration of application of the mask is 15-30 minutes. More than that, the mask will dry out and draw back the ingredients that have entered the skin. So, make sure to remove the mask when it still feels damp! Then, you can use the remaining essence to pat it on your neck and hands.
That's what you have to pay attention to in order to use the sheet mask optimally.
