Drenched in concentrated serums, a face-shaped fabric delivers a spectrum of benefits to your skin—from hydrating, nourishing, and firming the face to brightening, tightening, and enhancing the quality of your skin. These face cut-outs are your go-to makeover miracle. Yes, you’re right; we’re talking about sheet masks. If you haven’t indulged in one after a day riddled by WFH meetings, it’s time that you do. But where does a mask fit into your skincare regimen? Before moisturising? Or after cleansing? Here’s a simple routine we put together for you.
- 01. Indulge in double-cleansing
- 02. Prime the skin
- 03. Invest in a skin-loving serum
- 04. Mix a mask into the routine
- 05. Conclude by moisturising
01. Indulge in double-cleansing
This is a Korean-derived skincare ritual. Start by cleansing your face with an oil-based cleanser to eliminate residual makeup as well as oil-based impurities like pollution, sebum, and SPF from the skin. Massage a water-based cleanser into your skin to remove water-based impurities like dirt and sweat that your oil-based cleanser couldn’t dissolve.
02. Prime the skin
In order to prime your skin to absorb serums, moisturisers, and other formulas effectively, and balance its pH, reach out for your toner. This formula removes any leftover residue from your cleansers and repairs your skin's barrier to maximise the absorption of the rest of the products.
03. Invest in a skin-loving serum
Serums are, essentially, concentrated shots of nutrients, antioxidants, and hydrators that enhance the skin's health and target specific problems at once. They lie at the heart of the Korean skincare regimen. You can invest in the Simple Booster Serum - 3% Hyaluronic Acid + B5 to hydrate the face. An amalgamation of ingredients that moisturise the face like no other product, this serum is infused with hyaluronic acid that nourishes the surface of your skin and pro-vitamin B5 to maximise hydration. There’s more! Its composition—a naturally-derived plant extract stretched to its seams with hydrating properties—hydrates your skin for 72 hours.
04. Mix a mask into the routine
If a serum lies at the heart of the Korean skincare routine, a sheet mask embodies the soul of the regimen. This is where the mask comes in. Our go-to mask for the winters is the Pond’s Hydrating Sheet Mask With Vitamin B3 And 100% Natural Coconut Water. If you’re looking to resurrect your skin’s glow, this is the mask for you. Infused with the richness of vitamin B3 and coconut water, it reinstates your radiance instantly. And, boy, do we need to get rid of our cold-weather skin. All you have to do is press the mask against your skin and let it sit on your face for 15 minutes.
05. Conclude by moisturising
How do you seal in the benefits of the products you’ve just slathered onto your skin? Just massage a dollop of your moisturiser onto your face to lock in all that moisture instantly.
