To cool your skin during summer or after a heavy workout, store the sheet mask in the fridge for over a few hours. After you strike off your to-do lists, use the cold mask to activate and wake up your cells.
For the sake of this method, use a sheet mask that is intensely hydrated. To be honest, the feeling of cold mask on your face is all you’d want after a long day.
EVERY MASK HAS TWO SIDES
The sheet masks as usually filled with extra serum providing to the customer’s needs. Use the mask in the morning, store it in the fridge or elsewhere and use the unused side of the mask in the night.
This way, not even a single drop goes to waste and your face will look beautiful and glossy; giving all you need to flaunt your skin. Use both sides of the mask to ensure you consume minimally yet effectively!
GIVE EM A MASSAGE
After removing the mask, make sure to massage your skin as much as possible with the left over serum. The Coony Arbutin Essence Mask works best in this case, as it brightens, whitens and removes the dark spots on the skin. By going one step ahead and massaging the skin, the Koreans succeed in maintaining their flawless skin and age like fine wine!
This is my favorite sheet mask hack. To be minimal in skin care is difficult considering we already spend too less time taking care of it. But don’t let the serum go to waste ladies! Before using the sheet mask, squeeze out the extra serum into an air-tight container and store it for later use.
Use the sheet mask for the day and later come back to the left over serum and apply it on your face with massage. This way, you’ll be spending less and using more!
DIY THE MASK

Sheet masks usually come in the shape of the face, but leaves out the skin right under the eyes. To overcome this problem, DIY your eye masks using a cotton pad and edible/safe base like cucumber or a cloth. Squeeze out a little serum from the sheet mask and stick it under your eye.
Last but not the least; try to use the excess serum all over your body, concentrating on your neck, hands and legs. The sheet masks are the best way to brighten the skin and follow the Korean skin care to achieve the level of dedication and lifestyle as them!
Forget not to apply moisturizer before using the sheet mask. The two steps to a perfect skin are to trust the Koreans and to worry less. Wear the mask with a smile, so that it sticks to your face!
