So, you think you’re a face mask PRO, huh? Little did you know there are 6 very common mistakes you could be making when applying facial sheet masks. Yes, we're diving into the realm of...
Six Tips For Your Sheet Masks
Here are some tips for how to get the most out of your sheet mask:
- Prep your skin first. Wash or exfoliate your face before applying your sheet mask so the treatment can better absorb into clean skin. Pat dry.
- Know your ingredients. Check which key ingredients your mask features so you know what skin concerns it addresses. This helps you choose the right masks for your needs.
- Apply carefully. Unfold the mask and apply evenly onto your face, aligning the cutouts with your eyes, nose and mouth. Smooth the mask over the contours of your face to maximize contact.
- Relax and leave on. Our sheet masks take 5-20 minutes to work, so relax during this self-care ritual. For some masks, you’ll feel tingling as the ingredients activate.
- Gently massage excess. Once done, gently pat or massage the remaining serum from the mask into your skin rather than rinsing. The only mask you need to rinse is Exfoliate Mate after use. Any leftover essence still has beneficial properties to nourish your skin.
- Follow up with moisturizer. Your skin will better absorb a moisturizer or other treatment after masking. The added hydration locks in the mask’s effects for longer-lasting results.
Using your sheet mask effectively lets you achieve glowing, refreshed skin that looks and feels amazing! Give your mask the time and care it needs to work its magic.

How Do I Get More From My Skincare Routine
Here are some tips for getting the most out of your masks by using them in a skin cycling routine:
Exfoliate before you mask. Remove dead skin cells so your mask can better penetrate and treat live skin. Use a chemical exfoliant like lactic acid on exfoliation nights.
Rotate your mask types. Skin cycling alternates exfoliating, hydrating and treatment masking nights. Choose the right masks to target that night's focus.
Extend mask contact time. Leave masks on a bit longer, at least 15-20 minutes. This allows more time for quality absorption rather than quick application.
Apply lightweight serum after. Once removing mask, pat in the remaining serum hyaluronic, vitamin C or retinol serums while skin is freshly permeable. This drives home the mask's benefits.
Mist before final moisturizer. After the post-mask serum, give your face 2-3 layers of gentle mist or thermal water before sealing in moisture with your night cream. This amplifies absorption.
Stick to the schedule. Use that mask type every 3-4 days when it cycles back around for consistent, compounding skincare benefits over time.
Strategically scheduling and maximizing your masks during a skin cycling routine lets your skin reap recurring anti-aging, brightening and smoothing rewards. Be patient for glowy complexion payoff!
