Masks are no longer occasional indulgences, they have become skincare essential nowadays. There’s a crazy variety of masks available on the market though. How do you choose the one that truly caters your need? We have some tips to share.
Paper masks, also known as sheet masks have long been a staple in Asia. A sheet mask usually consists of a thin cotton sheet doused in a liquid-based formula. Range from brightening to pore control to hydrating, no matter what kind of skin type that you have, you can always find one that suits you. All you need to do is to leave the mask over your face for 10-15 minutes for your skin to absorb the goodness of it. Convenience is the best thing about sheet masks, they are portable and you can literally use it anytime, anywhere.
Wash-off masks are literally masks that you apply on your face for a certain period of time and rinse off afterwards with lukewarm water. The most common kind of wash-off mask is the clay masks, which help balance out the oils in your skin by regulating excess sebum and tightening pores, suitable for those who have oily and acne-prone skin. Some wash-off masks offers exfoliation treatment too.
As suggested by the name, sleeping masks are designed to be applied before bed and rinsed off in the morning. There are various formula that you can find in sleeping mask, but essentially they all have one common goal, that is to moisturize. Overnight masks create a permeable seal on top of your skin that makes anything underneath it penetrate better, and keep your face moisturized all through the night. You can actually wear sleeping mask overnight without creating a mess on your pillowcase like moisturizing cream products do. All you need to do is before you doze off, leave one of these overnight goodies on and wake up with your most glowing skin every morning.
