A Delicious Korean Menu for Our Skin

The beauty secrets of Korean and Japanese beauties haven’t been so secret to us for a long time. We all know that the reasons for their beauty and youth are not the mysterious “asian genes”, but dietary habits and an excellent skincare routine. So I asked myself – what parts of Korean menu can we find not in a restaurant, but on a sheet mask shelf?

The masks can be ordered online:
Finding Jeju Herb Seaweed Mask Tomaru eBay
Rice Brightening Daanji Mask Acwell eBay
Beauty in a Food Salmon Sheet Mask Skinfood eBay

I love sushi and started my search with the ingredients in this dish, which always include rice, fish, and seaweed.
Not surprisingly, sheet masks with these same healing ingredients are made by a truckload.
Today, I will introduce you to the three that I like.

Finding Jeju Herb Seaweed Mask Nutrition by Korean brand Tomaru
A mask with seaweed extract.

Seaweed Mask
Seaweed is excellent at nourishing the skin, increasing its regenerative processes, improving circulation and regulating the pH balance, which is why they it is used in many skincare products – to increase firmness. Seaweed in cosmetics fights acne, eliminates spider veins, normalizes the functioning of oil glands, reduces inflammation. Seaweed cosmetics are suitable for any skin type, including the most sensitive. Provides a lifting effect. Besides, seaweed has a cooling, anti-inflammatory and anti-swelling effects.

This sheet mask contains seaweed extracts from the famous Jeju island, which is often referred to as Korean Hawaii. This mask is made for weak, wilting skin to increase its elasticity and improve blood flow. It also has a soothing effect, hydrates and rejuvenates the skin well.

Seaweed Mask

The fabric of this mask is excellent. The mask is full of serum when taken out of the package, but nothing drips from it. The fabric has a porous, meshed surface, and it adheres to the face well. It has a completely unexpected delicate scent of men’s cologne.

To use:
Apply the mask to the skin after cleansing and toning.
Remove after 10-15 minutes and pat the remaining product into the skin with fingertips.

Rice Brightening Daanji Mask by Acwell
This lightening rice sheet mask is made of super soft fermented bio-cellulose bamboo leaf.

Rice Brightening Daanji Mask
It has the softest, smoothest fabric, which I want to obsessively touch while my face, risking to appear narcissistic. The essence has an unusual for us appearance of thick cream or rice water, non-transparent, white, fantastically gentle. This essence contains rice extract, rice enzyme, licorice root extract and anemarrhena root apofeloid root extract, which brighten and revitalize the dull skin. Rice is a healing ingredient in general and has been used to lighten the skin for centuries. The mask itself adheres well to the face, and the skin looks lighter after use. This mask also provides great hydration.

To use:
Apply the mask to the skin after cleansing and toning.
Remove after 10-15 minutes and pat the remaining product into the skin with fingertips.
The scent is faint and evaporates immediately.

Beauty in a Food Salmon Sheet Mask by Skinfood
Skinfood Beauty in Food Salmon Mask sheet is a deeply hydrating mask with salmon extract, which restores softness and glow to dry and dull skin.

Salmon Sheet Mask

Not too long ago, I praised the healing salmon in this review to a cream with the same extract, so now I will just remind you that it’s full of irreplaceable fatty acids, such as omega-3 and omega-6. Salmon is a superfood that reduces inflammation, clogged pores, acne and is one of the ingredients that effectively softens wrinkles.
This mask is great for skin that suffers from acne, dehydration, and for aging skin. It hydrates the skin and the wrinkles plump up and become less visible.

Salmon Sheet Mask

The mask is made from a typical material for this type of mask; I have nothing amazing or bad to say about it. The main thing in this mask is its healing ingredient list.

To use:
Apply the mask to the skin after cleansing and toning.
Remove after 10-20 minutes and pat the remaining product into the skin with fingertips.
I haven’t noticed a salmon scent. The aroma quickly evaporates.
