Sheet masks are known and loved for yielding incredible results in just twenty minutes. There’s nothing like the dewy, radiant finish your skin has after removing a sheet mask. It restores the bounce and freshness that was drained from your skin due to stress, lack of sleep, and the weather. The question is, how do we extend these benefits for longer than a few hours or at most, a few days?
If you’re smart about which products to pair with your sheet masks, you can extend the results beyond what your average sheet mask session produces. After all, the average person sheet masks just a few times a week, yet cleansers, toners, and serums are everyday staples. If you ever wish you could bottle up your favorite sheet mask like a serum (short of physically doing just that), read on to see how to take advantage of our new Cremorlab Sheet masks with our recommended product pairings.
If you have an oily skin type, you may be accustomed to using clay wash-off masks as opposed to sheet masks. However, sheet masks can absorb excess oil and shrink pores too. The Cremorlab Witch Hazel Pore Control Mask is formulated with witch hazel to reduce inflammation, kill bacteria, tighten pores, and reduces oil production. Aloe vera is also an astringent that curbs oil production while hydrating and soothing skin.
Pair this mask with the Caolion Freshly Chitosan Foam Cleanser. If you love clay based masks, this is essentially a clay mask in cleanser form. Red clay and chitosan draw impurities from the pores, tighten them, and reduce oil. Betaine softens skin without leaving a film, while lichen extract is antioxidant rich. Use this cleanser before using the Witch Hazel Pore Control Mask for a flawless complexion.
If your skin often feels dry or dehydrated, using a sheet mask will make a huge difference--but not any sheet mask will do. The Cremorlab Marine Hyaluronic Revital Mask is nourishing and moisturizing due to its title ingredient, hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid works by drawing moisture from the deeper layers of the skin to the surface, leaving the skin soft and supple. For added hydration, this mask is also formulated with panthenol, allantoin, and marine collagen. This mask is a winter staple for all skin types, especially those who get dry, rough, and flaky skin when the temperature drops.
Pair this sheet mask with the Ariul Spa Water 24hr Moisture Water-Drop Serum, which also contains powerful hyaluronic acid for moisture. Macadamia nut oil and betaine soften. Extracts like rose, chamomile, and rosemary soothe, brighten, and improve skin’s condition. Patting a few drops of this serum into your skin everyday will keep your complexion healthy and glowing.
If you’re looking to avoid or reverse signs of aging, the Cremorlab Golden Peptide Lifting Mask is the sheet mask for you. Peptides are known for their ability to lift sagging skin and smooth out fine lines. They also stimulate collagen production for bouncier skin and draw water to the skin’s surface for increased moisture.
For a double dose of peptides, try the Mizon Peptide 500 Ampoule. This serum will turn back time by increasing elasticity and combating fine lines. It's a favorite among our customers for being an easy addition to any daily routine.
While we tend to focus on skin issues like pores, anti-aging, and hydration, nourishing products are often overlooked. However, these types of products suit all skin types and allow our skin to stay healthy and glowing. The same way you feed yourself with nutritious foods, you really ought to feed your skin with nourishing ingredients as well. The Cremorlab Nutrition Deep Hydro Plus Intensive Mask is formulated with royal jelly, which is packed with vitamins and minerals that improve skin health and hydrate. Shea butter also conditions skin and creates a protective barrier that prevents moisture loss. Scutellaria Baicalensis Root extract is a potent antioxidant that leaves skin glowing and youthful.
Pair this sheet mask with the Be the Skin Power Nutrition Toner, which is formulated with nourishing royal jelly extract. Honey hydrates, kills acne-causing bacteria, and tones pores. Mallow extract soothes, witch hazel reduces redness, tightens pores, and curbs oil production. The jelly-like consistency of this toner sinks into the skin instantly, leaving it refreshed and bright. Apply this toner before using the sheet mask for balanced and happy skin every day.
If you are looking to fade dark spots, hyperpigmentation, acne scars--or if you simply want more radiant skin--the Cremorlab Silk Pearl Illuminating Mask is our top pick. The combination of pearl powder and niacinamide will brighten skin while fading discoloration. Allantoin, vitamin E, and glycerin are moisturizing yet suitable for all skin types. Retinol diminishes fine lines, breakouts, and dark spots.
The Primera Miracle Seed Essence is also formulated with niacinamide for brilliant skin. Lotus seed extract is a potent antioxidant that prevents signs of aging. Adenosine accelerates skin cell turnover for brighter, smoother skin. Apply this essence after removing the Silk Pearl Illuminating Mask for the brightest skin of your life.
While sheet masks are effective on their own, they are even more powerful when paired with products that feature similar ingredients for that extra boost. Using a serum, toner, or essence alongside a sheet mask can help you maintain the dramatic effects you see in your skin after removing a sheet mask for days afterwards.
