Sheet masks are commonly viewed as a “perk” or occasional “extra boost” for skin, so people tend to use them once or twice per week at best. However, just like with other skincare products, consistency does pay off…   While there is nothing wrong with using sheet masks to give your complexion a little extra care and nutrients from time to time, one of the alternative ways of using sheet masks is as an intensive course. This consists of applying a sheet mask 3-4 times per week over a 3-4 weeks period. The main reason for this recommendation is driven...
