What is a face mask?
One of the most popular skin care methods in Korea is using a face mask a day. Face masks, also known as sheet masks, are mostly single-use cotton pads that have been soaked in powerful skin-rejuvenating components. When you apply the mask over your face, it infuses its active ingredients into the skin, usually providing the skin with moisture and making the skin smooth and more welcoming to wear makeup. Because it gives such visible results in a short amount of time, the sheet mask has become so popular for the past years. Nowadays, you can find many different types of sheet masks and you should use them according to your skin type and desired purpose.

The sheet becomes a barrier between the air and your skin to keep the ingredients on your skin.
