The genius of Korean Beauty (K-Beauty) – sheet mask sensation is the latest in skincare. Became widely popular that even western beauty companies had to quickly conform.
So why try one?
1. It’s life-changing.
While Koreans use sheet masks as part of their Korean 10-step program, we Pinays are relatively new to this trend. And now we’d see our fave K-pop stars wearing one with goofy & candid selfies. And as loyal fans, we might as well take the habit like our idols 😉
One of the biggest benefits of Face Sheet Mask is that it delivers product deep into the skin in a concentrated way. It’s conveniently applying product with occlusion (cover) to penetrate deeply into the skin. Mud masks or other creams when applied directly in skin evaporates rapidly leaving very little to absorb in our deprived skin. So having a cover in sheet masks, the skin transforming ingredients seep into the skin like magic.
Thus providing instant effects in regards to skin’s moisture, elasticity, pre-mature aging and pore care.
2. It’s affordable!
I know most of us are money savvy but masks are actually much affordable!
It’s an inexpensive way to treat yourself than spending thousands on facials.
3. It’s relaxing…
😉 The best way to pamper yourself without breaking the bank. All it takes is 20 minutes and you can listen to Spotify, watch GOT, meditate, or read a book while on mask!
Why not? For sheet mask as low as P30 you can enjoy this trend at the comfort of your own home ❤️

During hot summer days, our skin tends to be more greasy, problematic and attention-seeking. Yes, it was one of my greatest concern too! Makeup lasts a few hours till we notice that our foundation is breaking apart, melting down and that eeww feeling as we watch in horror how our investment on makeup is going to waste. Lo and behold, I have my tried and tested tips for Oily Summer Skin.
Lo and behold, I have my tried and tested tips for Oily Summer Skin.
- Tip #1 – Use Moisturizer! stick with oil-free types.
And it may be helpful to opt for products that are specifically made for oily, acne prone skin. If we don’t moisturize our skin becomes thirsty, it will then produce more oil and the sebaceous glands will be crazi-er.
My holy grail product next to moisturizer is sunblock or sun creams. Don’t skip applying a teaspoon-amount on your face just because it’s cloudy. Most harmful rays still get through those clouds and hurt your beautiful skin. Study also suggests that sunblock helps control oil and shine.
- Tip #3 – Choose BB creams or Tinted Moisturizers.
Wearing cream foundation is heavy on skin and may even block pores which may lead to more skin problems like blackheads or acne.
It won’t be part of Korean’s 10-step skin routine for nothin’. Exfoliating at least two times a week is the way to have smooth, clear, & oil-free skin!
- Tip #5 – Detoxify with Masks.
I have a few recommendations; try masks with Green tea like this budget-friendly mask from Baroness, a popular Korean brand. Or a vitamin enriched one like Baroness Vitamin C mask. They also have Aloe Vera to soothe tired/sensitive skin, & Collagen Masks for anti-aging. Other Korean brands like Innisfree, The Faceshop and Petitfee have fruit infused masks to revitalize and deep cleansed the skin.
These masks will do wonders on your skin while you relax 🙂
Hope these tips will help!
I always wonder why Koreans seem to have the fairest, prettiest and nicest skin. In awe while watching Korean novelas on tv and surprised that even their male actors have luminous & fair skin. No, it must be more than genetics…. So I began my intensive study, first on their products and then their routine.
This is what I found out;
- Almost all of their products contain natural ingredients like Aloe Vera, Chamomile, Green Tea, Fruit extracts, etc.
- Moisturizers, creams or serums contain a natural & potent whitening ingredient called – Niacinamide
- Beauty products for oily, acne-prone and problematic skin mostly have – Jeju Volcanic Clay – can only be found in Korea, which effectively clears enlarged pores, brightens skin tone and improves skin texture. It’s known as the ‘Super Volcanic Clay’ that’s been long used by Koreans to treat various skin conditions.
Jeju is a place in South Korea
- Some uses Pearl powder, licorice and all the nice stuff on their products which help in maintaining fair and luminous skin
- All products claim to be free of mineral oil, synthetic or artificial perfumes and animal originated ingredients – meaning animal cruelty free! yay!
I also talked about their 10-step routine from last post → Korean Makeup ♥ you are welcome to read that, too! 🙂
