GLOW: with DIY sheet mask ideas!
Some days we all need a little pampering, no?
I recently shared with you my love of sheet masks… my essential tips for using them and my favorite brands. Sheet masks are an important tool in my skincare regimen and are super relaxing! Have you ever tried one?
Well, I am a DIY gal at heart and I when I realized there were some easy ways I could make my own sheet masks, I couldn’t resist trying a few ways!
In this week’s video, I wanted to show you three ways you could make a sheet mask. They all start with a base product and I add some goodies from my kitchen and bathroom to create a moisturizing treatment.

Here are more details on each type of mask I show in the video.
- Lotion Mask
- This is an easy method (made famous by Japanese skincare guru Chizu Saeki) of applying cotton sheets soaked in a moisturizing toner to your face. For a quick treatment, this is a simple way to mimic the sheet mask effect.
- Supplies used:
- SELENA Multi-Layer Cotton Puff
- Kikumasamune Sake Skin Lotion
- Other moisturizing toners that I’ve tried that are alternative options:
- Compressed Mask Tablets
- Rice Paper Sheet Mask
- Rice paper can make delicious rolls but it also can be cut up and soaked in fun ingredients to create a mask for your face. The texture reminds me of a hydrogel mask, but is more finicky and slimy to apply. I enjoy the end result, though, because my face is nicely moisturized and soft once the mask is removed (my face loves rice-based products).
