Korean face masks are everywhere these days – from Facebook to Instagram where everyone snaps a picture of them cover up on their faces. These sheets are also an inexpensive trend which is costing as little as a pound to try to and available in different place.
The sheet delivers a skin smoothing ingredients that have earned Korean face mask their popularity. There are several different kinds of fabrics such as fibre, pulp, hydrogel, etc. as well as different ingredients define to specific skin problem like acne, dryness, ageing and more. Most face masks will be helpful to your skin, but if you want to target specific issues, be sure to read up on what you’re buying first.
WHAT DO KOREAN FACE MASKS DO?
Korean Face Masks imbue their active ingredients into your skin, and this is only a tiny part of the actual healing. The real ability of the Korean facemask lies in its ability to lock those active ingredients against your skin.
Well, if you think about it. Most skin products evaporate after a few minutes on your skin. But it can take up to twenty minutes or more for the ingredients to go through your skin. So most of the time, the moisturiser you put on your face is evaporating before it can do any real good. Enter your Korean face mask. The sheet forms a barrier between your skin and the air around it to keep the moisture where it belongs on your skin.
The benefit of using the face mask is that it doesn’t get dry and hard like many of the clay masks on the market. This spreadable mask does a great job of removing excess oil, but when it moistureless, they crack and break. But, the sheet mask doesn’t have a problem like that, but it is messy, wet and complicated to apply (sometimes).
THE REAL REASON KOREAN FACE MASKS WORK
They said that the active ingredients the masks contain are what’s doing all the good. But I think the real reason Korean face masks work can be summed up in one word: MOISTURE
which performs many essential roles such as:
- Keeps skin soft and supple which allows it to resist damage
- Encourages collagen and elastin production in the thick layers of skin
- Helps filter out and minimise the damage caused by environmental factors like dust, dirt, allergens, and the sun’s harmful UV rays
Remember that face masks are only worn for twenty minutes and don’t heal the deep-down skin problems like wrinkles and nasty skin that many women face.
WHERE CAN YOU BUY IT?
You can buy it anywhere like Sephora, Boots or Urban Outfitter. But for me, because I live on the island and we don’t have a lot of shops here. I need to order through online, and the website that I keep visiting is the buttermilkskincare.com. They are a Korean skincare specialist based in the UK. They bring you the latest Korean skincare trends and the best K-Beauty products which derived from Korea.
My favourite Korean Mask that I keep buying from the buttermilkskincare website is the Brightening sheet mask package because my skin is feeling a bit dull, so I need something to help revitalise my tired looking skin and give it that healthy glow it deserves.
Each package contains six masks:
Whamisa Organic Flowers Hydrogel Mask
Atoclassic Real Tonic Perfect Treatment Sheet Mask
Aromatica Sea Daffodil Hydro Charge Sheet Mask
May Coop Raw Sheet Mask
Wish Formula I’m Pro Ampoule Pad Vitamin C
Missha Rice Sheet Mask
This brightening sheet masks help to reduce my tired looking skin and gives more glow. Also, the product not giving me an allergic reaction to the face. I masked three times a week, and I love the result.
Even though I have the struggle to put the Organic Flowers Hydrogel Mask on my face because the mask gel cut to two, I still love the effect.
All I need is to wrap up your hair, get a glass of wine, be PATIENCE and enjoy.
I would recommend the buttermilkskincare to everyone, WORTH IT TO BUY their Korean products.
