Korean sheet masks are the perfect pamper tool for all skin types out there. A sheet mask is packed with skincare ingredients and its aim is to intensively treat your skin in a matter of 20 minutes.
Cotton sheet masks are usually soaked in a glycerin based formula to which a number of active ingredients are added; depending on its intended purpose. They are recommended to be used daily, or at least 3-4 times a week. Recently sheet masks have become extremely popular and are part of the Korean “10 step skin routine”.
While you can find a wide variety of sheet masks, from hydrating to anti-aging and cleansing, they are not cheap by any means. A Korean sheet mask at your local Sephora shop will you set you back 10-15 dollars a pop. Not expensive, but not cheap by any means; especially if you intend to use them daily, or at least every other day.
However, what if I told you that you can make them all on your own?
Getting hold of a cotton sheet mask is easy enough. Some beauty stores actually sell them plain, already cut into a face shape, without any skin care infused into them. However, you can also use plain baby wipes for your basic mask. You will need to cut them up for the sheet to actually fit your face. From here, the world is your oyster!
You can create a sheet mask using ingredients that you have around your house. For a skin brightening sheet mask, refer to the tutorial above video. You can add turmeric if your skin is acne prone. Rose water and essential oils for a truly relaxing and hydrating sheet mask.
