I sit on my masks too! I actually hate the ultra chilled feeling, so I never pop mine in the fridge. (I also hate super cold drinks with a lot of ice, haha.)
I’ve been doing masks as my last step before moisturizer to make sure all of the other stuff beforehand sinks in as well as it can.
It really helps, right? Whereas I find if I use a sheet mask early in my routine, it can slow down absorption of other stuff.
I also hate getting up after a sheet mask to go stand up more and do the rest of my routine! Sheet mask = end of the night relaxing for me, so the less I do after, the better!
Here’s something I didn’t find out for an embarrassingly long time: most hydrogel masks have a front and back side. Usually the side to go against your face has more gel on it that you can kind of scrape with a fingernail. They really don’t work as well if you put them on backwards. 🙈
You know, I wondered about that too. Because unlike cotton masks, most hydrogels have different textures on each side (one side is more textured, the other smooth) and I always wondered if one is supposed to go on your face. Any ideas?
I think it’s the smooth side. That side should be a bit thicker. I’ve seen that in a few Reddit threads, but the first time I saw it was this blog post: https://iamabeautyjunkee.wordpress.com/2014/02/20/korean-hydro-gel-masks-tony-moly-syn-ake-live-snail-hyaluronic-acid/
I poke mine with a fingernail before applying, because I can never remember which is the “right” side hahaha
Sounds like great tips! I’ve never tried face oil under sheet masks before, but I do sometimes use serum before masks! 🙂
When I get lazy or have time before my evening routine after a sheet mask, I press a facial oil on after a sheet mask to seal all that goodness in. My face just GLOWS.
Another tip I learned recently: Store your sheet masks flat, not vertical, to keep the mask evenly saturated in essence.
Also, exfoliate before a sheet mask to help clear the path for full absorption.
The tip about storing them flat was kind of a revelation for me! I have a lot of mine upright in the fridge due to space issues, but I’ve started making sure the one I plan to use is flat for at least an hour before I use it.
do u have any recommendations for a good face oil? 🙂
I have done all of them! Lol but I noticed that I don’t really like warm face mask. I have the ones that are close to expiration in the fridge and the rest and are basically out at room temp. So most of the time I’ll just pop the ones at room temp right in before using because I just like that cold feeling to my face (even on the winter). Also when I started using facial oils, I didn’t know whether to use it before or after sheet masking so I tired them both and liked it better before because all the oil will sink into my face with out having that oily feeling on my face of doing it after.
That’s why I like oil before sheet mask too!
I appear to be utterly averse to those gel eye patches, but if I slap ’em on and then apply my sheet mask, I’m always happy with the results.
This is a great idea especially for under the eye masks. Not just masks are great in the fridge, other products like some essences are great to put into the fridge to help with the longevity of the product and formulation. I mainly do this during the summer because I am always worried about certain products that have to maintain at a certain temperature range.
thank you for such great tips!
