Once your skin has absorbed all of the essence-y goodness, remove the sheet mask, and lightly massage any remaining product into your skin. If there is too much product left on your skin, you may gently wipe it away, or splash your face with water to remove it.

Now is the time for occlusive layers that will lock all the moisture into your skin, and provide additional protection. You may now use any thicker or oil-based serums, as well as creams and moisturizers. If your routine is more minimalistic, just a layer of moisturizer will suffice.

SHEET MASK HACKS Instead of storing your sheet masks in the cupboard, store them in the fridge. The colder temperature will really invigorate your skin and make the whole experience extra refreshing. This is especially nice on hot days!

If there is still a lot of essence left in the package, boil your used sheet mask to sanitize it, and place it back inside the package and seal the top. This way you can get double the use out of the mask. However, if you suffer from breakouts, you should skip this sheet mask hack because it could worsen the situation.

Since a lot of essence is left in the package, you can use it for the next few days as a serum, before moisturizing. Take a mask with you when travelling, and use it for on the go pampering.

If you are also concerned about wastefulness and environmental impact, make a reusable sheet mask by cutting eye, nose, and mouth holes into a muslin cloth. Soak it in your choice of essence, and apply like a sheet mask. When you are done, instead of throwing it away, wash it and save it until the next use!

If you are concerned about the cost associated with sheet masks, you can try making your own. You can buy reusable packs of cotton masks, and simply soak them in your favorite oil, serum, or essence, and use them like you would any other sheet mask.
