HOW DO I USE SHEET MASKS?
It’s very easy! Apply it on a clean face, leave for 20-30 minutes, take it off and enjoy! You can apply it as often as you want throughout the day or week. When you are busy and barely have time to rest, sheet masks are great because you can use them even when you’re cleaning, cooking, reading or watching TV. The good thing is that, you don’t have to bother washing it off after applying!
The sheets are one-size-fits-all, but since every face is not the same size or shape, it would be easier to start from the forehead and pat it softly as you come down to your face while lining up the holes for your eyes, nose and mouth. You can use sheet masks as many times as you want throughout the day or week, but many recommend using it three times a week or once a day for extra care.

WHERE DID SHEET MASK ORIGINATE FROM?
Sheet masks originated from South Korea, known for their dedication on cosmetics and skin care. Today, sheet masks are widely popular in Asia as a whole. Sheet masks are recently changing the beauty industry and gaining popularity in the U.S by seeing various celebrities utilize sheet masks and post about it on their social media. From the recent study conduct by NPD Group in the USA, the sale of masks increased about 60%, overwhelming other categories in the skincare business.
HOW DOES SHEET MASK WORK?
There is a sheet fully soaked with concentrated serum, which consist of many beneficial ingredients to the skin such as hyaluronic acid and vitamins. These ingredients are in water phase as dissolved. The sheet prevents quick evaporation of water phase and extends the time frame the ingredients require to penetrate deep into the skin. This result in the sheet masks outperforming the effects of the traditional serum-type skincare even when applied once.
ONE MASK SHEET A DAY?
I did not know the sheet masks are originated from Korea!!
There are plenty plenty selections of sheet masks in the drugstore, they almost fill one entire section of the shelves in various features, functions and flavors!
When there aren’t much to choose from, we bought the famous “SK-II” sheets from duty free shops and use once a week as they are expensive!
I used to get trouble or skin irritation when using random sheet masks of 1 dollar but now i don’t get any trouble if i randomly choose any one of them in the drugstore shelves.
The ingredients are much improved.
Once it was a hot trend to have one pack a day. I tried for over a month and it won’t cause any trouble and improved dryness.
It defenately is a convenient and economic way of skin care at home.
