Who doesn’t adore celebrity’s perfect skin? Many of us wonder how their skin can be so flawless? Face masks are everywhere these days and we have seen many famous idols group members from BTS, Twice and Blackpink using them to maintain their skin.
But What Are K-Beauty Face Masks?
Face masks, or sheet masks, are single-use cotton pads that have been moistened in skincare ingredients. They are commonly designed to have the form of your face. The intent of Korean masks is to deliver skin-soothing ingredients to see results quickly.
It is important to understand that even though face masks are an important part of a K-beauty skincare routine they must be combined with three non-negotiables products:
- A cleanser-you can try Shiseido Senka Perfect Cleansing Foam that would gentle eliminate dirt, oil, and makeup without disruption your skin’s natural moisture.
- Sun protection and
- A moisturiser-one of Japan's and K-Beauty favourite is Rohto Mentholatum Hadalabo Hyaluronic Acid Lotion. This gentle formula has a rich texture that can easily apply moisture to your skin throughout the day.
Benefits of K-Beauty Face Masks
K-Beauty face masks soak their active ingredients into your skin. They are so remarkable because they engage those active ingredients alongside your skin. This is possible because the sheet forms a fence between your skin and the air around it to retain the moisture and active ingredients inside.
Another benefit of the face mask is that it stays moist, it doesn’t get dry and hard. This allows moisture to penetrate in every part of your skin.
The real reason why K-Beauty Face Masks work is because of the moisture the skin. As you may already know moisture is responsible for:
- Keeping your skin soft
- Helps in the production of collagen and elastin in the deep layers of skin
- Minimize the damage caused by environmental factors such as dust, dirt, allergens, and the sun’s UV ray.
K-Beauty face masks deliver a quick remedy for oiliness and redness. Because they deliver ingredients deeper to the skin, they will help you more quickly than other types of products.
So, if you are suffering from redness, dryness, oiliness, and inflammation using a mask is a quick fix.
It is recommended to look for a face mask that include salicylic acid and alpha-hydroxy acids also known as AHAs for acne, antioxidants like vitamin C, and E, resveratrol and ferulic acid for wrinkles, niacinamide for rosacea and soy, kojic acid, tranexamic acid and licorice root extract for brightening dark spots and unwanted pigmentation.
Always use a K-Beauty face mask for your skin type.
