Q: Can I mask every day?
Some skincare buffs swear by daily masking to achieve the enviable Korean glass skin – but there are no hard and fast rules. It all depends on your skin needs, lifestyle and skincare routine.
The sheet mask step in your skincare routine is usually where you replenish your skin cells' hydration levels and feed it with essential nutrients. You can never go wrong looking out for sheet masks that contain soothing yet hydrating ingredients like Aloe Vera and Marine Algae. Aloe vera is known for its anti-inflammatory and healing properties, apart from its ability to create a protective layer on the skin to help retain moisture. Marine algae contains a rich bank of nutrients and minerals that can draw toxins from the skin. One mask that contains these two ingredients is Bio-Treasure Skin Water-full Mask.
