Do you envy the flawless and luminous complexions of your favourite K-stars? Their secret is the “one day, one pack” method that focuses on using one facial mask every day to achieve smooth and dewy skin.
But before you go on a mask-buying spree, here are four things you should know:
Not all masks can be used daily. Hydrating masks are your best bet for a daily facial mask as they give your skin a moisture boost. But you should limit clay masks and peeling masks that contain exfoliating acids like glycolic acid, to two to three times a week, depending on your skin type. And if you’re prone to acne,you might want to limit using a facial mask to once or twice a week only; using one every day could aggravate your skin and cause more breakouts.
Chill your facial masks. Joshua from K-pop group Seventeen keeps his favourite masks in the fridge – and you should too. With Singapore’s hot and humid weather, slapping a chilled mask on your skin at the end of a long day is such a refreshing treat.
You can create your own mask pack. Saturate cotton pads with toner and place them over your face, or on troubled areas like the cheeks and forehead, as a DIY mask. It’s an easy way to give your skin a quick dose of hydration.
