And among many types of face mask we know, cream sheet masks are definitely grabbing huge attention especially because of the creamy texture it has giving that comforting feeling onto the skin.
When we here the word DIY face mask, it sounds very simple and easy but I would like to say that it’s true but only when you know the proper skincare ingredients and the right products to see an effective result. So I have prepared a guideline for you to start creating your own cream type DIY face mask that will work wonders for your skin and that you cannot live without making your own.
Then How Do we Start?
1. Know Your Skin Type and Concern
Always, start with knowing what your skin concern is. What type of skin type you have, what skin concern are you most worried about and is willing to solve? It’s important to know your skin type first before figuring out your concern because different ingredients and products can work differently according to different skin types. If you know what your skin type is, look into your skin more in details and listen carefully what it’s asking for. Is it the moisturizing? Is it the brightening? Is it the calming? Or is it the anti-aging? Or is it all three of them?
