Wondering how to boost the effects of sheet masks? It seems easy but there are definitely some tips that help you get the most of out of them. First of all, put in a hair band so that no hair gets in the way. Then follow these steps for how to boost the effects of sheet masks.
When it comes to face masks always cleanse your skin first. You can use any scrub but I make my own with coffee grounds. All you need some oil and coffee grounds to create a much cheaper and effective scrub. It will also be a chemical-free natural product. Use your fingers to massage your face as well. Then rinse and dry. That's the first step in how to boost the effects of sheet masks.
2. READ the INSTRUCTIONs
Because there are a lot of masks that work differently, be sure to read the directions. Some of the masks will recommend using toner before application. Use your favorite toner or be creative and make your own. Spray it on a cotton ball and go over your face. If you have sensitive skin, use your fingers instead of the cotton. Toner will remove any residue from the scrub or cleanser.
3. TEST PATCH
One thing that all of us forget to do is to test a patch of skin. This is especially important if you haven't tried a product before. Just take some of the product from the mask and using a finger, apply to a small area of your face. Make sure you don't have any reaction to it. If everything is OK put your mask on.
4. APPLY EVENLY
Make sure the mask covers your entire face. Try to get all the little bubbles out. Go through with your fingers to make the mask touch your skin and there is no air left behind.
5. TIME IT
For some masks, more time is needed than others. Set the timer.
6. MASSAGE IT in
When time is up, take off the mask and massage it in so your skin adsorbs that good staff.
