How to use a Sheet Mask:
There are 3 simple steps to using your selected Holika Holika face mask:
1. Wash your face to remove any makeup or dirt. Finish up with a toner to ensure all impurities are gone.
2. Take out the gooey mask (you will need to unfold it), find out where the eyes, mouth and nose holes are and align these with your face. Contour the mask to your face for a snug fit. Yes, you will look a little weird, but once the mask is on, sit back and relax for 10 - 20 minutes.
1. Remove the mask after 10 - 20 minutes and gently pat your skin to help absorb any left over mask residue. Feel the satisfaction of doing a lil’ something for yourself and your skin. Enjoy the glow!
