Sheetmasking for Combination Skin



I sometimes feel like I have two different faces - the top half is a freeze dried strawberry I am constantly trying to rehydrate, and the bottom half is a sensitive, hormonal teenager who doesn't know how to wash her face after soccer practice. I used to treat whichever version of my face needs the most love and attention, but I realized that just because the sheet is for the whole face doesn't mean I need to use it on my whole face. I'm a genius, right?

So watch the video to see how I boost and customize my sheetmasks, or read the easy steps below.
You glow get them (crying laughing emoji)





1) Cleanse and tone your face. Toner primes your skin to help it better absorb nutrients, which makes it an essential first step before masking. I start with P50 toner and let it soak in. Then I use the Glossier Soothing Mist to help gently PH balance my lower face, and the Hyalamide Hydra Density to plump and treat my top half.

2) Boost with serums. The sheet mask will help these super hero ingredients to penetrate more effectively - just make sure to only use things with a thin watery texture so you don't block the absorbency of the ingredients in the sheet mask. I used the Glossier Supers in Pure and Glow, which are sold out right now, but you can dupe them with The Ordinary  Niacinamide + Zinc and Hyalamide Booster Glow. I finish with Hyalamide SubQ Anti-Age.

3) Apply sheet masks, using scissors to cut shapes that fit your needs. I used the Cremorlab Peptide Plumping Mask for the dryer parts and Witch Hazel Pore Tightening Mask for my breakout prone areas (thank you Peach + Lily for gifting these to me!)  Sit for 25 minutes. I recommend using the time to read one of these novels, because they will help you tune out and relax.

4) **Finish by gently massaging in the ingredients, and then applying a moisturizer on top to lock all the good stuff in. I used the Lagom Cellus Deep Moisture Cream.

**BONUS STEP: Before applying your moisturizer use the Nuface with Damask Rose or Aloe Gel, the microcurrents not only tone your face but also boost absorption of all those great ingredients.
