Can you imagine performing a 15 step beauty routine every morning.... even before your morning coffee? Well the women of Korea actually do, morning AND evening. Its incredible the time and energy they put in to looking after their skin. It does certainly work though, they all have flawless, ageless faces. If you can find the time then I say go for it. If you're like me and treasure your time in bed too much for a extra early morning, there is a step from the ultimate skincare routine that will have you looking fab, and it only takes one step!
Sheet face masks are one of top products in Korean skincare, some ladies even use a mask every night! For those of you who aren't sure what I'm talking about, sheet face masks are a fabric style mask you pop onto your cleansed skin and leave for 30 minutes. Once your time is up, you remove the mask and rub in any excess serum left on your skin and ta da, a pampered face! I'll admit you do look a little scary, but these masks do wonders for your skin!
You can get sheet masks quiet easily nowadays, so for me it's finding the best type available now that's become a bit of a challenge/hobby for me, I am literally drowning in sheet masks! I gave the When Special Package a go recently to see how they tackled my problem skin!
The pack includes five masks all with a different benefit for using them. This idea is something I loved the sound of, and the names of them are brilliant too, the different types are, Travelmate, Glamour Base, 10:00pm, Snow Magic and The Last Choice. Want to know what the names mean? Oh ok... I'll tell you...
When you are on the road, take along When Travelmate. This bio-cellulose sheet mask contains gentle, moisturising ingredients to help your skin recover from sun, wind and dry air. It is save to say I'll have this little fellow in my bag for my next flight, my skin hates to fly!
When you want to beautiful for that special day this is the one for you. This clever masks removes flaky skin and makes large pores disappear, it's the fairy godmothers of face masks! Perfect for that Christmas party coming up, it makes your makeup go on flawlessly too!
Our skin rejuvenates itself during the hours of 10pm - 2am, this mask is designed to use at night, when you're all tucked up and want to give your face a little pamper. Let yourself recharge from all the stresses of the day, with one of the ingredients being watermelon to promote skin regeneration, you'll look completely refreshed and new by morning.
Now this is my favourite I must admit. It sums up what this blog is initially about, how to achieve amazing results in super quick timing! This mask has a real WOW factor to it and my skin was instantly brighter and radiant. I love to look glowing all year long, after all, it's not only the Summer that calls for glowing skin after all.
