What's one of the best things you can do while staying at home? Follow your skincare routine religiously. It’s not an indulgence. Stress and anxiety have been found to manifest themselves in skin problems. So, giving yourself a chance to unwind before heading to bed should be one of your top priorities. In comes one of the most calming steps in skincare: masking. Applying a sheet mask will give your skin a boost while also giving you some time to relax.
However, there are some things you should know before doing the “one day, one pack” K-beauty method. Avoid using sheet maks with exfoliating acids, like glycolic acid, because they’re too strong for daily use. Another thing is if you’re very acne-prone, using these masks daily may not agree with you and once or twice a week would be enough. Now that we’ve nailed that down, show your skin some TLC with these sheet mask recommendations.
