Do you want to break your daily routine for 20 minutes? You can apply a face mask quickly and easily, without the need to wash off. This product fits in a new generation of face masks designed in Korea based on a technology which allows them to perfectly adhere to the facial contours – it consists of a structured mask soaked in active ingredients whose base material can be either fiber or hydrogel:
- Fiber masks have a coarse texture that feels and behaves like paper. Sometimes their paper-like texture lacks the “contouring” to remain in place for very long and you will need to lie down to keep it from falling off;
- On the other hand, hydrogel masks have a production process that blends cosmetic serums with gelatin, which results in a thin layer mask, requiring careful handling.
The application of these masks is similar in the various brands: apply the facial mask on previously cleansed skin, adjusting it to your facial contours and leave it on the skin for 15/20 – 30 minutes. Finally, remove the mask and massage the remaining product into the skin and neck. The application steps are explained in each practical package. Its allows home use, but sheet masks are also good traveling partners.
