It’s no secret that K-beauty has taken the world by storm (much like K-pop and K-drama have). And I think we can all agree that the gateway to this magical realm of chok-chok (luminous, moist) skin is a sheet mask.
It was all the rage in the mid-2010s but was a bit overshadowed by other products. It’s remained a staple in many people’s routines though. The best part is it comes in lots of varieties, so you’re bound to find one no matter your skin need or if you’re a first time user or someone’s who’ve tried so many already.
What is a sheet mask?
If you’re not too familiar with it yet, a sheet mask is a face-shaped mask made out of thin cloth. It’s soaked in serum that are meant to get seeped into the skin for the optimal effect.
Which sheet mask is good for everyday use?
Any sheet mask that works for you and doesn’t react badly to your skin is good for everyday use. Since this type of mask is packed with a serum, you may think of using one as though you’re using any other serum. It’s just the type of application that’s different.
What sheet mask do Korean celebrities use?
Many of the popular sheet mask brands are Korean, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that many Korean celebrities use any or all of them. Some K-celebs have also been tapped to be the faces of some brands. Among the popular ones that celebrities use are Mediheal, Mamonde, innisfree, Laneige, AHC and Sulwhasoo.
