Spring roll paper or rice paper and green tea water.
Rice paper is what you'll use as your sheet mask, it has a similar consistency with your usual cotton and gel masks and is made from ingredients beneficial for your skin. The green tea, in addition to its benefits to our bodies, can tighten your pores, regenerate cell growth, and is high in antioxidants. You can use organic green tea for calming purposes. You can even add milk, honey, or aloe vera for additional vitamins and minerals.
1. Cut the rice paper into 2 or 4 smaller pieces according to your face's shape.
2. Dip the rice papers one by one into the solution for about 1 minute, make sure the tea is already cold enough.
3. When the rice paper turns soft and almost transparent, apply it on your face!
Enjoy Your Mask
Leave your mask for 10-15 minutes to allow all the nutrients to seep in. Follow it up with your other skincare products and you're good to go!
So, happy masking everyone!
