In this video, Dr. Rajani is discussing sheet masks and their proper use. He emphasizes the benefits of sheet masks for achieving glowing and tighter skin and notes that they can help reduce the need for other skincare products by balancing the stratum corneum, which is the outer layer of the skin that acts as a barrier.
Dr. Rajani explains that sheet masks are made of a membrane soaked in beneficial ingredients, which can include antioxidants, vitamins, and anti-allergenic components. He notes that sheet masks originated in Korea and are popular there.
The video highlights ten common mistakes that people make when using sheet masks. The first mistake is failing to properly prep the skin by applying the sheet mask to freshly cleansed skin. Dr. Rajani notes that this allows for optimal absorption and recommends double cleansing if wearing makeup.
The second mistake is not following the instructions on the sheet mask, which can include removing a membrane and wearing the mask for the recommended amount of time.
The third mistake is not having the mask adhere properly to the face, particularly in areas such as the nose, chin, and brows. Dr. Rajani recommends using a mirror to ensure full coverage.
Other mistakes discussed in the video include leaving the mask on too long, not moisturizing after removing the mask, using a mask too frequently, using a mask that is too harsh for the skin, and not storing the mask properly.
The video is intended to help viewers get the most out of their sheet masks and achieve better-looking skin.
