I’m so happy to have had two people to approach me and ask for a bit of skincare advice! Hi Riylie and Beatrice! I hope it works out 🙂
I actually had to do a quick search of the products available in their area because I realised not everyone has access to the korean skincare products I love and use. Sephora does hold certain brands like Dr Jart+ and Sulwhasoo but the prices aren’t as competitive as here in Asia. In the states, at least Target does have My Beauty Diary and Neutrogena sheet masks at similar prices to Asia. Does anyone know how to get cheap korean skincare if you’re based in USA/Canada?
Anyway, I just wanted to add on to my current skincare routine. I do quite a few masks a week, but they cater to different needs. I think of them as targeted treatments.
So I’d usually use a deep cleansing mask 2-3 times a week (Sulwhasoo Clarifying mask/Mamonde Pore Clean Clay Mask)
Brightening/Moisturising sheet mask 1-2 times a week (I’m currently loving anything from Dr Jart+/My Beauty Diary)
Hydrating sleeping mask 2 times a week (Sulwhasoo Overnight Vitalising Mask/Dr Jart+ Vital Hydra Sleeping Mask)
When and what I use really depends on what I think my skin needs. If I’ve been out exercising or I’m feeling particularly clogged up (skinwise) that day, I would reach for a deep cleansing mask.
If I have a bit more time or I just want to relax, I’d use a sheet mask. Sometimes I’d pop them in the fridge for a bit, just to get that refreshing, cooling sensation when I put it on.
And finally, when my skin feels drier or when I’m lazy (usually this haha), I’d use a sleeping mask. Sleeping masks will give your skin a huge dose of moisture and are usually formulated ingredients that promote skin cell repair when you sleep.
I hope this posts helps inspire you to mask more frequently and take better care of your skin! These are some posts that might be of interest to you as well:
