Are you new to the concept of the Korean face mask and want to learn more about it? Seoul Mamas can explain this growing beauty trend.
Read our in-depth answers to FAQs to see what the hype is all about.
What Is a Korean Face Mask?
A Korean face mask, also known as a Korean sheet mask, is a thin mask made of flexible paper, cellulose or even bamboo soaked in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other ingredients that are beneficial for hydrating your skin. Consumers open the mask and place the mask on the face anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes to allow the serum to be absorbed by the skin.
How Do Korean Face Masks Work?
The serum in your sheet mask fosters absorption of the nutrients while allowing the mask to sit comfortably on your face without having to hold it on.
Some evaporation can occur before the serum fully soaks in when there is no sheet mask holding them in place. Since the face mask is holding the serum directly against your skin, there is very little evaporation and your skin soaks in the maximum amount of vitamins.
Can Korean Face Masks Be Done at Home?
The great thing about Korean face masks is that they are essentially mini-facials that you can do yourself. The masks come sealed and individually packed, and everything is ready to go when it reaches your hands. All you have to do is open the mask, place it on your face, and relax for up to 20 minutes.
What Are the Benefits of Korean Face Masks?
When used once or twice a week as part of a skincare routine, sheet masks can help keep you skin hydrated, shrink pores, clear up your skin, and give your skin a healthy glow. The face masks are a way to feed your skin a number of beneficial ingredients in a short amount of time and allow the serum to be absorbed deeper into the skin.
Are Korean Face Masks Expensive?
No, sheet masks are very affordable to do at home and much cheaper than getting professional facials. Depending on the type of mask and ingredients, you can usually find masks as cheap as a few dollars each.
Why Choose Korean Face Masks From Seoul Mamas?
Our sheet masks are made from 100% bamboo cotton, a thin and absorbent material. We create our sheet masks by drying and grinding the bamboo, and this results in a mask that is gentle on the skin and adheres to the curves of the face for maximum coverage.
