1.Squid Game’s Ho-yeon Jung Uses Aloe Mask As The Ultimate Complexion Booster

Ho-yeon Jung starred in Squid Game,which is the No.1 Netflix show in more than 90 countries since it premiered. No doubt her acting has been phenomenal, but she is also one of the most renowned Korean models. 

“Keep it simple” is her beauty mantra. She rarely puts on makeup unless it’s for work, and uses moisturizing masks on a daily basis. When her skin is irritated, she will always put on a sheet aloe mask for its soothing effect. 

Aloe vera has anti-inflammatory properties which can reduce pain, swelling and speed up wound healing time. Since this plant-based ingredient contains both moisturizing and healing elements, most of their products are even sensitive skin friendly. 

Should you use a moisturizing mask everyday? The short answer is yes. According to the dermatologist, as long as it’s not a glycolic acid-containing mask, it’s safe to use a mask daily. Using masks formulated with exfoliating acids, like whitening and deep cleaning masks, are too strong for daily use and can cause irritation, breakouts and even allergic reactions especially during season transition.

K-drama queen Shin-hye Park is known to have a radiant, poreless complexion. Her secret is placing a warm damp towel on her face and cleansing her face with warm water before putting on a mask. This trick opens the pores, softens and deep cleans your skin to prepare receiving all the benefits of the mask. It also allows the serum to penetrate the skin with ease. 

Park also highlighted that when it comes to face mask application, longer isn’t always better. The rule of thumb for face masks is to leave them on for 15 to 20 minutes max. If the face mask itself dries out, it will start sucking moisture out from you skin, as a result, never sleep with them on unless you want to wake up with a dehydrated, chapped skin.
