How to Use a Sheet Mask
1. Start By Cleansing Your Skin
Sheet masks should never be applied on top of dirty skin or makeup. What is the point of skincare then? You will just clog your pores and make your skin worse. You need a clean and smooth canvas for your sheet mask. Wash your face with a gentle cleanser that will prep your skin for a sheet mask glow. The serum will be absorbed deeper into the skin leaving your skin radiant and glowing.
2. Cut Your Masks To Fit
Sheet masks are one size for all but unfortunately, not every sheet mask can fit every face perfectly. Many sheet masks come with some slits in the edges so that the fitting is better but still if you feel it doesn’t fit well on your face. You can cut the mask according to your face.
3. Place The Sheet Mask On Your Face
The tighter and closer the sheet mask is to the skin it is more effective since serum absorbs better and deeper into the skin. The sheets are one size for all but since every face is not the same it would be easier to always start from the forehead and pat it softly as you come down to your face. It is recommended to use sheet masks three times a week or once a day for extra care.
4. Wait 20 Minutes Before Removing The Sheet Mask
Facial sheet masks are great because they are very easy to use. You can use them even when you’re cleaning, cooking, reading, or watching TV. Just relax and pop on the sheet mask! Wait for 20 minutes and then remove the sheet mask don’t wait for too long. If you leave the sheet mask until it becomes dry that can irritate your skin. Keep it for 20 minutes only, not more than that that will remove moisture.
5. Don’t keep it longer
We assume that the longer we keep it will provide more benefits. That’s wrong, longer is not better. Wait for 20 minutes and then remove the sheet mask don’t wait for too long. If the mask is left for too long, it will feel dry and can suck moisture out of your skin.
Sheet masks are loaded with way too much serum, so use it to your best. Squeeze excess serum and massage it with your fingers into your neck, hands, or even feet. Let the serum absorb in your skin deeper. You can also store the excess serum in an airtight container and use it later.
7. Don’t wash your face
Sheet masks are loaded with a serum that contains vitamins and other nutritive ingredients to nourish and hydrate the skin. Washing your face after using a sheet mask is a waste because it washes off all the moisture and nutrients.
8. Seal it Tight
Last but not least, This step is not necessary since sheet masks are already loaded with serum. But you can apply light moisturizer and dab on a little eye cream. This will help to keep all the vitamins and nutrients locked into your skin and make your skin glow.
