How to work sheet masks into your skin care routine
Popularized in Korea and now beloved worldwide, sheet masks are rapidly becoming one of the most talked-about ways to hydrate skin. Sheet masks are a quick way to add a boost of moisture to your skin. But how and when is the right time to add this step to your skin care routine? Let’s work through the steps of a basic skin care routine, adding in a sheet mask along the way.
No matter how complicated the skin care ritual, it should begin twice a day with simply cleansing your face. Cleansing in the AM rids your skin of sweat and oils that build up during the night. In the evening, it’s important to clear any dirt and impurities that you’ve been exposed to throughout the day. A cleanser like Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 cleanses, removes makeup, and refreshes skin.
Toner gives the skin an even deeper clean. Toner helps to balance oily and combination skin. Look for a toner with no or low alcohol content to avoid drying out your skin.
3. Sheet Mask
With your cleansed skin as a base, a sheet mask can help deeply hydrate the skin. Using the cut-out eyes, nose, and mouth as a guide, lay the mask flat over your face. The hyaluronic acid-soaked tissue is formulated to moisturize and revitalize your skin. Garnier’s sheet masks are also formulated with Vitamin C-rich pomegranate to help protect against environmental damage and brighten the skin’s appearance. The best part of masking: the serum needs 15 minutes to work on your skin, so your ritual now includes some designated “me time.”
After 15 minutes, remove your mask — but help seal in the benefits by slathering on a moisturizer. Continue to help strengthen your skin’s moisture barrier with a hyaluronic acid-infused night cream like Garnier SkinActive Miracle Anti-Fatigue Night Cream. Consistent moisturizing is the key to skin that appears youthful and radiant, and sheet masks + moisturizer are a powerful combination for your skin.
