A sheet mask is one of the best things from the K-beauty world, if you ask me. It's like getting a facial without leaving the comforts of your own home, and there is literally a sheet mask for your every skin need. However, as convenient as they are, they can still be quite messy to use because they're saturated with product, and you may end up with a dripping mess. But still, we love them.
Are you getting the most out of your sheet mask? Here are some things you can do to boost your sheet mask experience and make the most of your stash, to make sure every purchase is sulit.
Sometimes, it's not enough to just let the mask sit on your face as you relax. A good practice would be to massage your face using a jade roller to really let the ~good stuff~ seep into your skin. Not only will you maximize your sheet mask, you also get to boost the circulation in your face via face rolling. A pro tip? Place the facial roller in the fridge for a few minutes before using it. Its coldness will feel like literal heaven after a long day.
Massage face using your fingertips
Okay, maybe you don't own a facial roller. The good news is that you can still totally make do without it. You can massage your face while the sheet mask is still on you to really promote blood flow and keep your face plump. Just make sure not to massage too hard!
Store away leftover serum
So, you know how when you take out the sheet mask, it's dripping from all the serum inside and it can get really annoying? Don't be too quick to throw away the packet it comes in. Chances are, there is still some leftover serum that's remaining inside. There are two things you can do with it: You can either massage whatever's left on to your neck, or you can store the remaining serum in a small container for future use. It's a good alternative if you aren't able to buy an actual bottle of serum because those can get pretty expensive. Tip: You can also use the serum on your elbows and knees to soften them!
DIY under-eye patches
If you did store away the remaining serum in a small container, you can go the usual route and just massage it on to your face using your fingers. But if you're extra and you really want to pamper yourself, you can cut a cotton round in half and soak them in your container filled with leftover serum. You can place the saturated cotton round on your under-eyes to help combat fine lines and dark circles.
So, you've got your sheet mask on, and you've stored away the remaining serum for future use. Why stop there? You're already in relaxation mode, you might as well go all out with your home beauty treatment. You can put on a gel eye mask to relieve puffy eyes and dark circles, and you can also put on a lip mask which offers further hydration than your average lip balm. A combination of all three will surely make it easier for you to relax and snooze after a tiring day.
