HI-TIPS: 1 Mask A Day Guide

1 Mask A Day Guide 

"1 Mask A Day" is hot beauty trend in Korea. Applying mask is now becoming a MUST DO STEP in daily skin care routine that gives perfect result immediately within minutes. 

There are so many kinds of masks even in Hikoco. But I want to define masks in 4 different categories. 

PEEL OFF TYPE / WASH OFF TYPE / SLEEPING MASK / SHEET MASK

I will introduce what they are, and how they work for your skin and little tips for you!

1. Peel-Off Type Mask

They are fun and easy to use because of  the many benefits they offer. They deliver powerful detoxifying, purifying, and brightening results. There numerous types and brands of peel off masks, but they all work about the same by offering  great benefits.

For whom?

Person who needs to clear pores and restore the rough skin texture.

Benefits

Peel off masks work great to cleanse out dirt, oil and impurities. Peel off masks gently remove the outermost layer of your skin, producing a smoother texture and even helping with skin pigmentation. In addition, they also help fade fine lines or clean out pores.

Tips

When you remove mask once it is dried, there are 2 ways to remove it from your skin.

If you peel it from bottom to top, it is easy to remove fine hairs and dead skin cells. But if you have a sensitive skin, do not follow this way. 

To peel the mask from top to bottom, it is bit hard to peel but it give less irritation on your skin. 

How to use 

1) Clean your face with a cleanser
It is very important to remove all make up dirt and oil before applying the mask
2) Steam the face to open pores
Pour boiling water into a large bowl and stand near it, this will help pores open up.
3) Apply the facial peel off mask.
Using clean hands, pat it onto the face, make sure to create a nice think layer to make the peel off process easier. Avoid eyes and lips.
4) Wait and relax
Its very important to let the mask dry out completely before trying to peel it off.
5) Remove the peel off mask
Gently peel off mask from outer edges and wash any portion you are unable to peel off.

2. Wash-Off Type Mask

It is a little bit of works to do.. Wash face, apply, wait till it's dried then wash.. But if you have used it once you will be addicted to keep using wash off type pack. 

For whom?

Person who wants to get radiant and refreshed after-feel

Person who is working outside or dirty(?) environment 

Benefits

There are several different types of wash-off pack. Mostly, they are good to clean out dirt from the deep pores and brighten dull skin tone. You can feel refreshens after using wash-off pack.

Tips

Use clay type wash-off mask once a week to remove remaining makeup or dirt in your pores. Do not laugh or speak once the clay type wash-off mask is dried to avoid getting fine wrinkles. 

Liquid or jelly types, it is good to give a gentle massage while you applying mask.

How to use 

1) Clean your face with a cleanser
It is very important to remove all make up dirt and oil before applying the mask
2) Steam the face to open pores with hot towel 
Dip the towel into water and microwave it for 30 sec to make a hot towel. Then put this hot towel on your face for 1mins to open pores. 
3) Apply the facial mask.
Using clean hands and spatular, apply mask onto skin in even thickness of layer. Avoid eyes and lips.
4) Wait and relax
It is depending on the products but relax for about 20 mins. I suggest to lay down while you relax. 
5) Wash it off 
Wash it off with lukewarm water. 

3. Sleeping Mask

It must be little bit new to someone who just get to know about k-beauty. It is so called Sleeping pack or Sleeping Mask.

Sleeping masks are a fairly new concept in non-Asian countries. The reality is sleeping masks are not messy at all! All you need is a coin sized amount to massage into your face, which will absorb quickly upon application. The revitalizing effects are extremely addicting, with your skin feeling softer and looking brighter and refreshed.   

For whom?

Person who feel lazy to apply complicated skin care steps

Person who has extra dehydrated skin 

Person who has sensitive skin 

Person who drank a lot last night and want to get a good condition for next day 

Good to use especially during winter time

Benefits

Sleeping Pack protect your skin to be dehydrated while you sleep. It covers your skin as a outer protect shell with natural ingredients that help your skin retain water and moisture. The revitalizing effects are extremely addicting, with your skin feeling softer and looking brighter and refreshed.

Hi Da
Iam sorry for late replying
Have you purchased it’s skin descargot snail mask and cream? For the instruction, you can apply mask daily but if you think that is too much for you, i suggest at least 2-3 times a week, before you go to bed. Relax on the bed while you are enjoying mask for 15-20mins than pat it after remove the mask.

For using cream, please use it in the morning and night skincare routine. If you are using the mask at night, applying cream is not necessary.

Thank you
