Selection Tips


To choose a thicker mask paper. Thicker mask paper can lock the serum or nutrients relatively. Too light means that the mask paper is relatively thin.



Does the mask paper fit the curve and bump of the face, and does it take into account the degree of fit around the nose and around the eye area? These issues directly affect the skin’s absorption of the nutrients adsorbed in the mask. The degree of fit of the mask to the face depends on the number of cutting knives on the mask. Usually the number of knives for mask paper cutting is mostly 8, good mask cutting can reach 12 knives



The material of the mask will affect the comfort and effect of the mask. The natural cotton texture of the mask is the most popular material in recent years, the synthetic fiber material is the next most popular. Slightly thicker, weighted mask paper can absorb sufficient amount of moisturizing essence, the “pressure seal” on the skin wrapping effect is better. Bio-fiber mask paper is the best, generally used in professional salon line, because it is more expensive, the general public can not afford this price level of products.


Use process

① First of all, you should do a good job of preparing the skin before applying, mainly by thoroughly cleansing the skin, or after massage with a hot towel for three minutes to make the pores expand, then use the mask, use a towel to wrap the hair and reveal the face. It is better to apply cream or olive oil on eyebrows, eyelashes, etc. first, because these places cannot be coated with mask.

②Apply the mask supplies on your fingers or soft bristle brush, and apply evenly in the order of neck next forehead a two ton a nose a lip Monday forehead, etc. In the distance from the eyes, lips, eyebrows, etc. should be about 0.5 cm apart to avoid stimulating the mucous membrane to cause adverse reactions. Place eye pads for protection if necessary. If you are oily skin, apply the mask from the T-zone with more oil, the amount is a little more okay, and then apply other parts in order.

③After applying the mask, avoid pulling the expression muscle, it is best to take a lying position. Natural face dressing is usually kept for 10~30 minutes, peel off type mask to dry naturally for 10~20 minutes and then peel off with light pressure method from top to bottom, or wash off with water. The number of times to do the mask should be mastered properly, too diligent dressing will instead accelerate skin relaxation, aging. In general, once a week can be applied. For oily skin, acne-prone skin or pigmentation with treatment purpose, it can be used 2-3 times a week.




Usually the woven mask can be left on for 10-15 minutes, and the specific time of application can be determined according to the instructions on the mask. It should be noted that the longer the mask is applied, the better the effect. If you find that the mask is still moist after the time specified on the mask instructions, there is no need to continue to apply the mask, because the active ingredients in the mask have been fully absorbed by your skin, and applying it again will not increase the effect. Do not increase the number of times you apply the mask on your own.



After removing the woven mask, you can double the effectiveness of the mask by massaging it with the nutrients left on your face. Massage the fingers of both hands in the order of “from the center to the periphery” and “from the bottom to the top” along the texture of the muscles, which is the route of lymphatic circulation to detoxify and tighten the skin.



The main reason for the excellent maintenance effect of the mask lies in the “wrapping” effect of the mask, which completely isolates the skin from the air and allows the skin to fully absorb nutrients. Therefore, it is best to lay the mask on, so that the weight of the mask itself fully pressed on the face, to help the mask play the “wrap” effect.
