Learn More About Your Skin Using A Sheet Mask

This simple step will tell you a lot!

Sometimes I feel like I’m the only person in the world who isn’t 100 per cent sure what my skin type is. Sometimes, I’m super oily, other times I’m as dry as the Sahara, so I’ve come to the conclusion that my skin is normal/combination.

However, we’re all aware that our skin changes with the season. What was once dry is now oily and vice versa. Need to pinpoint which areas of your face need the most hydration and attention? Well an Into The Gloss writer has come up with the simplest trick to test.

All you need is a sheet face mask. It can be as cheap or expensive as you like, one from Penneys will do just fine.

Take the sheet mask and put it on your face. Most masks usually recommend to leave them on for about 10-15 minutes, but for this test, Into The Gloss are recommending you leave the mask on for roughly 40 minutes if you can. Get yourself a cup of tea, watch an episode of Gilmore Girls and let the mask do the work.

This should be long enough for the serum in the mask to soak into your skin. When time is up, take a look in the mirror and have a feel around the mask. Which parts of it are the most dry? Where is it still wet? You can use this as a guide as to which areas of your face you need to be adding more moisture to.

And there you have it, you learn more about your skin and also give yourself a 40 minute treatment, all in one simple step. Revolutionary.
