Benefits of facial mask pack
Facial pack for dry skin
Facial packs are especially effective to dry skin since they can supply various nutrients and moisture to the skin. When your skin is chapped due to dry weather or if it is lusterless and dry because of your everyday stress, this is the right time to hydrate your skin with a facial pack. Give elasticity to your face and keep it resilient.
Facial pack for oily skin
Some face masks are designed for oily skin, too. There are many people having trouble dealing with acne and facial flushing. In addition, face packs soothe the excessive heat in your face. A face pack in summer is also good if you have sunburn since your face needs to take a rest.
If you have oily skin, carefully cleanse your face with soap or a cleansing foam before putting on the facial pack to prevent sebum from sticking to your face.
How to use a face pack
A face pack is a wet paper-type sheet in the shape of a face. You just need to follow these 4 very simple steps to make your skin glow!
- After washing your face, put on toner to smooth the skin texture.
- Take out the mask, and remove the film, if any.
- Gently attach the sheet around the eyes and mouth to adhere well to the skin.
- Remove the sheet after 10-20 minutes and pat the remaining essence or cream on the skin, including your body, for absorption.
Usually, one pack a day is desirable but set the time and frequency according to your skin. Also, do not reuse the leftover essence in an empty bottle, as there is a risk of contamination.
Where can I buy sheet masks?
There are many different facial packs in Korea in various brands. Let us introduce to you some of the most popular ones.
NEAF NEAF Soothing Calm Mask & Soothing Calm Toner Pad
NEAF NEAF is very popular for its facial masks. Even people with sensitive skin can use it every day without worrying about irritating their skin. It soothes the skin and manages pores effectively at the same time.
It calms the skin by lowering the skin temperature and provides moisture to tired and flaky skin, and it is suitable for oily skin.
It calms the dead skin cells of rough and sensitive skin, which is good for dry skin.
NEAF NEAF launched its famous facial packs in a soothing calm toner pad version. The toner pad has the same ingredients as its facial pack but is smaller, making it even more convenient. You can easily organize your skin texture before wearing makeup on a busy morning in just 3-5 minutes.
It had a launching promotion and sold toner pads plus ten more sheets at a discounted price. It was extremely popular and got out of stock soon. However, we, KoreanBuddies, have the toner pads in our warehouse. So if you’re still interested in this item, get in touch with our staff!
