To make your face look flawless every day I’m sure you know a LOT of effort is required ╮(╯∀╰)╭. Besides the skin care routine that’s a must on a daily basis, if you want truly flawless skin you should use a mask twice a week to make it absolutely perfect! There are plenty of masks out there to choose from, from a clay mask, mud masks, and so many sheet masks with a rainbow of different nourishing ingredients! For a simple, quick option though, most people choose the regular sheet mask to get that skin glowing.
Sheet masks are the simplest to use, just simply open the packet and slip the sheet mask gently your face until everything is covered. Just wait around 10-15 minutes and BAM! You can feel the difference almost instantly! (♥ω♥*) Usually, we love pamper ourselves before a special occasion by using one the night before to make your face look glowing, dewy and hydrated! Want some suggestions of some of the best (and cutest!) masks out there though? Look no further! We’ve chosen our top 9 cutest sheet masks from Japan and Korea to make your skincare routine more fun!
