1. Not prepping your skin properly
Just like any other face mask, it’s important to make sure your skin is absolutely clean before applying the mask. This involves removing all your makeup, and ensuring that there isn’t any dirt or debris on your face. It’s also a good idea to exfoliate your skin before applying a sheet mask, so that all dead skin cells are removed. By doing all of this, you’ll have cleared the way for the sheet mask’s ingredients to penetrate your facial skin and work their magic.
2. Not making sure the mask adheres to your face
The package may say that the sheet mask has been designed to be one-size-fits-all, but this may not always be the case. As everyone has a different face shape, the same type of sheet mask may not fit everyone perfectly. However, it’s necessary to make sure that the sheet mask fits your face properly. You could do this by gently pressing the mask onto your face, and smoothing it all over.
3. Leaving it on for very long
It’s important to remember that leaving a sheet mask on your face for very long doesn’t mean that its results will be better. If you leave the mask on longer that you’re instructed to, it may suck all the moisture and nutrients out from your skin, and will leave your skin less nourished than it was before.
4. Washing your face immediately after using the sheet mask
A sheet mask isn’t like most other masks. Usually, you would wash your face after applying a face mask, to wash off any remaining residue. However, you shouldn’t do this after you’ve used a sheet mask. This is because, a sheet mask contains actives that continue to nourish your skin even after the mask has been removed. To fully enjoy its benefits, leave the product on your face for a while, and occasionally pat and massage it in, so that it can make its way to your skin’s inner layers.
