Korean Sheet Masks, aka, Face Sheet Masks, a concept born in Korea which offers superior delivery of moisture and active ingredients, are becoming more and more popular. Here’s how they work…
Korean sheet masks are made from thin, cloth-like material designed for one time use to lock in moisture by sealing hydration into your skin. By using them regularly, you begin to absorb the ingredients, and over time, it can make a difference in the look and feel of your skin.
For ultimate success, follow these 4 simple steps:
Simple Step #1…
Select the right mask to meet your need. There are masks to lift & plump, soothe & restore, drench & nourish, masks for anti-aging, brightening, hydration, etc., so be sure and buy the mast that fits your skincare need.
Simple Step #2…
Be sure to wash and cleanse your face. Cleanliness should always be your base for skin preparation with any moisture product.
Simple Step #3…
Next, apply the mask and leave it on for approximately 20 minutes. Any more than 30 minutes is a no-no. The mask will either begin to dry out or, depending on the ingredients of the mask, your skin could have a negative reaction if left on too long.
Simple Step #4…
Finally, remove the mask and feel the effects of softer, more supple, glowing skin.
Please Note: Not all masks are created equal so investigate before purchasing!
Things to Look for When Purchasing a Korean Sheet Mask
Cost: Korean sheet masks range from $2 per sheet to well beyond $150. More expensive isn’t necessarily better. There are so many brands to choose from that it’s best to start on the low end until you find the one that works best for you and your skincare needs.
Ingredients: Be on the lookout for masks that are loaded with alcohol and excessive perfumes. These ingredients not only irritate the skin but they’re also counterproductive to moisturizing. A fantastic ingredient to watch for, which adds moisture to dry skin, is hyaluronic acid.
Skin type: What works for someone else doesn’t necessarily work for you. If you have oily skin, for example, buying a mask made for dry skin could do more harm than good. Be sure to select a mask that fits your skin type and addresses your skin problems.
The biggest benefit of a Korean/Face Sheet Mask is that they deliver product deep into the skin in a concentrated way. Applying product in this way (as a cover), increases penetration which enhances results.
As a caveat, Korean/Face Sheet Masks have not been tested in any clinical trials for their effectiveness so be sure to use them as an adjunct – not a replacement – to your normal skincare regimen!
