A 3-step guide to applying sheet masks

guide to applying sheet masks

Sheet masks are all the rage at the moment. This is because they are a great way to get the most out of your skin. Grace Mantjiu shows you how to apply them properly.

If you haven’t tried a sheet mask yet, you need to do so ASAP! This skincare staple is drenched in nutrient-packed serums ready to nourish your skin.

If you’ve been struggling to apply your mask properly, follow this 3-step guide to applying sheet masks:

Step 1. Cleanse your face to prep your skin, so that you start with a clean base.





Step 2. Don’t forget to tone the skin. Toners are effective at balancing the pH level and removing any remains of the debris left by your cleanser.

Step 3. Timing is everything. Unfold your mask and put it on your face for 20 minutes. Remove and pat the remaining serum into your skin. If you leave the mask on for too long and it dries out, it will suck moisture out of your skin. Don’t remove the excess product with a towel; rather use it on your neck and hands.



Beauty editor’s tip: If the sheet mask is watery, then you need to moisturise afterwards. But if it is thick, there is no need to follow up with a moisturiser.
