I just thought I would share this with you since yesterday I told you I’ve been spending most of my money on sheet masks. Believe me, I have learned a thing or two that could help you get the most out of your sheet masks.
If you read the full post from yesterday then you know that I usually gravitate towards hydrating masks and that’s because keeping my skin well hydrated keeps it elasticated, glowing, and youthful. The tips I’m sharing will aid in maximizing the benefits of your sheet masks.
Refrigerate Your Mask
Popping your mask in the fridge a few minutes before using it helps with de-puffing. Personally, I wake up with a puffy face almost every morning and this has really been a game-changer for me. the refreshing, cooling sensation does wonders.
Don’t Keep It on for Too Long
Like many people, you probably think the longer you keep your mask on the better the results. Wrong!
You shouldn’t keep your mask on for longer than 20 minutes. Once it gets dry it will probably start drawing moisture from your skin. You also shouldn’t wear a sheet mask to bed for the same reason. Keep it on for 15-20 minutes and massage the excess residue into your skin.
Don’t Forget the Package
After application, you can wring out your sheet mask gently to remove any serum that hasn’t fully absorbed into the skin yet and apply it directly to your face, neck, or chest.
And don’t forget the package! Most sheet mask packaging has a ton of serum inside it leftover, so squeeze the packet and make sure you don’t waste a drop!
Put It in the Right Place (in Your Skincare Routine)
You aren’t the only one who doesn’t quite know at what step of your skincare routine your sheet mask should be. Most people out here just wing it but it is suggested that your sheet mask comes after you;
- apply a hydrating facial mist or toner
- finally- sheet mask!
Seal in the Moisture
After massaging your sheet mask essence/serum into your skin, follow through with an eye cream and a good moisturizer to lock in the moisture in your skin.
