Tip   #1

Prep your skin properly

Before you apply your sheet mask, ensure your skin is properly cleansed so the powerpack of a serum gets easily absorbed into your skin. You should also apply your toner because the toner which balances the natural pH of the skin, soothes irritated skin and rid the skin of excess impurities. It sets the stage for the ultimate benefits you will be getting from your sheet mask.

Tip   #2

Leave the mask on for no longer than the recommended duration

Confused as to why you can’t have your sheet mask on for longer than 20 minutes? After all, it’s jam-packed with benefits so why is there a time limit?
The short story: the recommended duration at the back of your sheet mask package indicates the window before the mask dries up because If it dries up too much, reverse osmosis can happen and moisture that has reached your skin can be pulled back out of your skin and into the dry mask.

Tip   #3

Pat in the excess essence

The fact that a single sheet mask contains essence that is equivalent to the potency of a serum is enough of a reason for you to cherish every single drop of the essence! So, after you’re done with your mask, remember to pat in the excess essence and make sure they’re properly absorbed into your skin.

Apply the rest of your skincare routine

While it isn’t always necessary to use a moisturiser after your sheet mask sessions, it won’t cause you any harm to do so. The moisturiser will lock in all the moisture and seal in all the beneficial ingredients from your sheet mask, preventing it from evaporating out.
