Daily Masking ♥ One Year Later

Daily Masking
It's been over a year since I decided to start using a sheet mask every night. Since it's now been over a year since I've added this extra step to my skincare routine I thought I would share my experiences of daily masking now that it's been over a year. If you are considering daily masking then you might find this information useful.

Pimples
Like I mentioned in this post at first I had no pimples or blemished for months! I was
When I first started using masks I didn't get pimples for months! However, that time has past and now I get them like regular.

Addictive
When I first started using a sheet mask every night I dreaded adding 10-20 minutes to my skincare routine. However. after the third month, it became addictive. I am now at the point where I feel incomplete if I don't use a sleep mask.

Don't Wear For Too Long
This is something that I recently learned. You know those suggested times on the back of the sheet mask packaging? Well, they aren't just there for no reason. I would be one of those people who would leave sheet masks until the mask dried out but sometimes doing this isn't the best idea because the mask material or essence could break you out if left on for too long. If you've tried the same type of masks then go ahead and add a couple minutes but be cautious of new sheet masks you've never tried before.

Extra Essence Is Your Best Friend
I can't tell you how happy it makes me when I know that there is a lot of leftover mask essence in the packaging! The following morning I squeeze the liquid out and gently pat the essence until it absorbs into my skin.

  1. I'm not sure where you live (and not going to lie, I'm being lazy by not looking at your about section before I post this comment), but are sheet masks cheap where you are? I've been thinking of trying daily masks (or even every other day), but I'm trying to see if it's an expense I'd want to add in to my budget or not. For reference, I live in the US and would buy most of my masks online off Amazon, StyleKorean, SokoGlam, etc.

    1. I'm from the US! I buy most of my sheet masks off of Amazon too (I buy the ones in sets of 10, 15 or more). Also, when I see a box of masks from Marshalls (from a brand i know of) I pick those up. I'm honestly having a difficult time looking for new masks to try because I always buy the same masks over and over again. I use to buy masks sets from Memebox but I don't know what happened to them. ♥

  2. Hello I just found your blog and I've recently started wearing sheet masks and the 'don't leave it for too long' is such a good tip. I leave it on for 20 mins. Is that too much? x

    1. Hi there! I say just follow the time suggested on the sheet mask packaging because all masks are different. ♥
