Sheet masks come in different shapes and sizes, depending on the manufacturer. Aside from the hydrogel or bio-cellulose materials, cotton and fibrous materials fit my face awkwardly. It’s either covering my top lip or forming a tent around my nose or flapping out under my chin. I am a perfectionist when it comes to getting all the air bubbles out from between my skin and the sheet mask, so this infuriates me to no end.
However, the end is not nigh. Don’t settle for a bad fit when you’ve paid good money for a sheet mask, fortunately there is actually a very simple method to ensure the sheet mask is given its best chance.
All you need is a pair of scissors for cutting a one inch slits. I find that cutting slits at the temples, sides of nose and under chin are enough to get a perfect fit.
- Align mask with eye holes, nose hole and mouth hole.
- Cut a one inch slit on either sides of temples, at the fold line. Lay the top flap on skin, followed by the bottom flap overlapping the top flap.
- Align scissors with nostrils and cut a half inch slit on either sides of nose. Smoothen out air bubble.
Align scissors at the center below the chin. Cut a one inch slit. Smooth left flap upwards onto bottom chin and smooth right flap upwards overlapping left flap, forming a point at the tip of chin.
- Smooth out all air bubbles from the rest of the face.
Viola! There you have it! A sheet mask that fits perfectly no matter how your features undulate!
Go be beautiful!
