Types of K-Beauty Masks For Glowing Skin

In the ever-evolving world of skincare, one trend that has taken the beauty industry by storm is the use of masks. Today, we delve into the world of K-Beauty masks, exploring how these skincare gems can help you achieve radiant and glowing skin.

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between a clay mask and a sheet mask? Or maybe you're just looking for a new way to use masks in your K-beauty routine. Regardless of your reason, we're here to help! In this article, we'll talk about the different types of masks out there and explain how they work—and what they can do for your skin.

Clay Masks

Clay masks are one of the most popular types of facial masks, and for good reason. Clay masks are great for deep cleansing and detoxifying your skin. They're also effective at reducing acne, absorbing excess oil, and improving the appearance of skin texture and enlarged pores.

Clay masks work by drawing out impurities from deep within your pores while providing an intense hydration boost to thirsty skin cells that need it most. The best part? You only need to use a clay mask once every week or two!

A great option from the Korean cosmetics world is the Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask from Innisfree, which uses volcanic clusters to pull out excess gunk and make your pores look smaller without drying out the skin.

Sheet Masks

Korean skincare has mastered the art of sheet masks. They’re made of a thin fabric that's soaked in hydrating and skin nourishing essence. They're great for a quick hydration boost for dehydrated and dull skin.

The best part about sheet masks is that they're easy to use--just unfold one, place it over your face and relax as it slowly enriches your skin! Remove the mask in around 15-20 minutes and discard it, patting in any leftover product into your skin. Our top recommendation for soothing sheet masks is the Centella Asiatica Calming Mask from Beauty of Joseon, which provides soothing relief for your skin with mugwort, ginseng, and goji berries.

Cream-based Masks

Cream-based masks are some of the best for dry skin. They can also be double as a moisturizer, and they're easy to apply and remove. If you have dry skin, consider using a cream mask once or twice a week to keep your complexion soft and hydrated.

A good example here is the Honey Mask by I'm From. It is formulated with 39% organic honey as well as skin nourishing and brightening propolis and jojoba oil.

Sleeping Masks

Sleeping masks are a great way to moisturize your skin while you sleep. They are usually made with a thicker consistency and have more oils than normal face masks, so they'll stay on better overnight. You’ll want to apply your sleeping mask before bed (or at least 20 minutes before going to sleep) in order to let it set in. Try the super popular Water Sleeping Mask from Laneige, which packs a major hydration punch while still being lightweight on your skin.

 The draw of the K-beauty love of face masks has made its way around the world, and people are more willing to spend the money on Korean beauty products that they can see really work. Whether you want a mask that’s a quick and easy sheet to pop on, or you want to let your skin luxuriate overnight, there’s a mask that’s just right for you!
