I don’t do masks anymore (or rarely recently) ’cause I can’t stand not moving about. And even when I wear clay masks, I tend to move my face a lot which makes the mask crack and I think that’s not good because it freezes my lines in place.

Yes, clay masks are much more convenient. I’ll usually be catching up on Youtube videos and sitting in front of the fan if I’m doing a clay or peeloff mask. I’ll catch a nap if I’m using a wet sheet mask. ?

i use a sheet mask every night monday through thursday during a work week and by the time i get to it, it’s time to catch the local news in mandarin, so i mask and keep up with chinese at the same time ?
usually, i use sheet masks from the face shop as they do not drip and are light enough to use everyday (vs. SKII types for instance); i buy them in bulk from korea, as they’re much cheaper. i reckon i may use those tablet masks with suitable japanese lotions/toners when i can’t get access to those face shop masks from korea anymore…they really do keep my skin in tip-top condition after stressful work days, without taxing them out with just too much stuff loaded in the sheets. after masking, i apply my usual skincare
I stay in front of the computer in order to avoid dripping on the sheets. It also makes me more likely to take the mask off in time as I tend to fall asleep when I’m on the bed.

Masking time is sleeping time! I leave all my masks on, be it sheet masks or gel hydration mask. That’s simply the best way to make use of time and squeeze the mask dry! A lot of my masks are still well-soaked with essence even after 6 hours of me sleeping in an air-con room.

I am not a regular mask user but I avoid those dripping kinds. I surf the internet and catch up on my blog reading meanwhile or read books.
on a side note, our society is so geared towards never idling and always being productive and we are made to feel guilty about not doing anything. Isn’t sitting and doing nothing for sometime good for us?

I don’t feel guilty about idling…I actually wish I have time to idle but I don’t. And the reason why I need to keep myself busy is just so I can head to bed earlier. ?
That sounds great. I do watch TV sometimes with my mask on too.
Wow, so you’re one of those who sleep with your mask on! I don’t think mine can stay intact on my face after 6 hours though.
Yeah, better to keep an eye on the time as you don’t want to overdo the mask session.
I ALWAYS do something when I have a mask on, whether it is a clay mask, sheet mask, or whatnot… I also can’t stand doing nothing, I mean you can treat your skin and so some useful work at the same time, you should take that advantage#k8SjZc9Dxk#k8SjZc9Dxk But clay mask crumble when they dry on the skin, so I am careful when using my laptop, because I don’t want my kayboard to be full of little clay crumbles…
I remember the SKII ones…very very wet! I needed a towel on my bed just so that when I lie down, the bed won’t get wet. Kind of messy and that’s why I hardly use sheet masks these days…in fact, almost never.
Nap! The only time I sleep with a mask on is during facial! ?
Aiyoh why do you want to move your face? I can tolerate being expressionless for that 20 minutes or so. ?
I always do something when I put on mask; normally something related to grooming i.e waxing and painting nails. Its like a home spa session. I even turn on slow new age/nature music. Very relaxing.
I’m using a sheet mask as i type this! haha.
I use my clay mask while im in the shower because the steam keeps it moist. I happen to dislike the sensation of clay drying on my skin.
I’m typing this comment with yoghurt on my face, which should answer your question. ?
Usually I just read something (online or offline) or maybe watch TV, although I hate it when the mask dries and I have to wait for a commercial break to go wash it off.

I don’t have any masks whith me. Because I cant buy decent ones anywhere. And DIY or clay masks dont agree with my skin. But Id lay down. Or go on PC
Or be taking a bath – having a spa session. Or watching a movie.
Because I have to wear glasses, I can’t do anything with a mask on – glasses have to come off. ? Once I get contacts again, I’ll probably just surf the web or watch a video or two to pass the time. ? Clay masks are my fave, and I use pre-moistened ones too.

Oh a home spa session is nice…I like the idea of the music and it will be nice with some aromatherapy. ?
I don’t mind the drying part but I’ve realized it’s not a good idea to leave the clay mask on till it’s too dry. There were times I had breakouts when that happens.
Haha…I miss using yogurt! I’ve been using a clay mask of late.
I see…I suppose it’s cos your skin is quite sensitive and the DIY and clay masks tend to contain active ingredients.
Ah…it can be slightly inconvenient…what about reading? Do you still need the glasses?
I use a homemade natural clay mask, and I put it on the first thing I enter the shower, so that my face and hands are completely dry. After I put on my mask, I will go about my normal shower routine – Shampoo, rinse, conditioner (clip up hair), soap, wash off conditioner and soap.. basically I wash off my mask last. By that time, I would have spent a good half hour in the bathroom and the steam keeps it nice and moist. Love it.

How do you shampoo with your mask on? That’s an amazing feat! I would have the shampoo on my face or the water on my face…
Hello! I’m wearing a sheet mask right now and came across this website haha! When I’m wearing a sheet mask [or any mask], I listen to some music, think about my life, and think about how pretty I want my face to be. I also think I’m doing something pretty for myself as I care for my body. And obviously, I surf the web about the benefits of wearing such!
