A sheet mask is a thin face-shaped sheet that is soaked with a skin-beneficial essence. There are numerous masks available to address various skin concerns. They rapidly revitalize, moisturize, and even brighten the skin.
Unlike conventional masks, this one will not evaporate, as the sheet forms a seal against the skin. This will aid the essence’s penetration into the skin.
How should you apply a face mask?
It should be applied to clean, dry skin and left on for 15-20 minutes. You can also leave it on for a longer period of time, however certain sheet masks dry out quickly, which results in drier skin. According to specialists, it should not be kept more than 25-30 minutes. Additionally, you should never sleep with a sheet mask on, as this can result in paper-dry skin the next day.
Prior to using the sheet mask, cleanse and pat dry your skin. Additionally, if you intend to exfoliate your face, you should do it prior to masking, not after. This way, your face will be free of pollutants and will absorb the essence more effectively.
After removing the sheet mask, dab on any remaining essence. Ideally, avoid washing your face after removing the sheet mask, as this will remove all of the essence. If your face feels excessively sticky following the mask, it’s time to switch masks.
