Daisy’s Guide to Squeezing the Most from DaisyCode Sheet Masks

Clean, clean, clean!
It's no beauty secret that cleaning your skin daily is a MUST with or without a mask! Washing your face and completely removing any makeup are essential steps before using a sheet mask to moisturize and hydrate the skin. Although often used interchangeably, moisturizing and hydration are not exactly the same. Hydration is more about the water content within the cells that keeps them plump, bouncy, and reflecting light well to keep you glowing. On the other hand, moisturizing is about sealing in moisture to build the skin’s protective barrier, prevent water loss and keep the skin soft and smooth. Every type of skin requires both to make sure the skin is getting all the water it needs to fight dryness and dehydration but often oily skin gets left out of a moisturization routine, resulting in premature signs of aging!
Don't Forget Your Neck
Don’t waste the botanical extracts and nutritious oil! After applying the mask to your face there will be some essential oils remaining in the mask package, squeeze out and massage the remainder onto your neck in a sweeping upward motion.
2.While Most Effective Used Before Sleep, It Is Also Possible to Apply Before Morning Makeup
Using a sheet mask before bed works wonders to repair skin during sleep - when the body does its best restorative work! If you have a special event but forgot to complete the mask treatment the night before, an express deep hydra Pre-makeup Routine can still deliver noticeable results. First, apply your usual skin care products, let it absorb for 5 minutes, then apply the mask on top for 15-20 minutes. After removing the sheet mask, you may wash your face if desired. Beware some serums might cause makeup to appear caky. Personally I resolve this issue by exclusively choosing products designed for use both night and day, my age group, and application before make up.

#For Whenever want to Rinse Off

3.Take Advantage of the Cool Relaxation During a Nap but Set a Timer for 20-30 Minutes Max
A frequent mistake beginners make is leaving the mask on for too long. Depending on each individual’s skin characteristics, the mask should be removed between 20-30 mins. Leaving sheet masks on for too long or until they dry will actually cause a reversal effect as the sheet will begin to draw moisture back from the skin. This could result in skin irritation and make the skin drier!
Sometimes starting a mindful mediative practice can be a bit daunting but designing your "nap" for a 15-20 minute space can be a beautiful time of retreat to relax your body and mind. Creating a space for positivity and healing can encourage the brain's pituitary gland to produce the feel good hormones which strengthen the body's circulation and of course extend the effects of using a beauty mask.
5. Apply Oils Before Applying Mask Every Time
Not sure if you should apply skin care products before applying the mask? The answer is yes! Because The sheet mask forms a barrier that locks the nutritious formula you should definitely apply your sheet mask to a freshly cleansed and toned complexion for optimized results!
What If I have a skin allergy or sensitive skin I don’t want to touch?
As I have sensitive skin myself - sometimes painful and itchy, I avoid rubbing my skin at any cost. On days my skin is particularly irritated, I use toner spray and apply the Lavender mask directly.
