FAQ

The Skin Republic range of sheet masks combines the latest advances in skin care with nature’s restorative properties. Sourcing ingredients from around the world the Skin Republic serum formula contains some of the most advanced skin care ingredients. Our range of face masks has been developed by dermatologists in South Korea to target skin concerns from aging and loss of firmness, to uneven skin tone and problematic skin.

Sheet masks are typically cotton or fiber masks which are pre-cut into the shape of your face or neck and décolletage. The sheet masks are drenched in serum helping to nourish and hydrate for beautiful looking skin.

The Skin Republic sheet masks are one of the most effective delivery systems of nutrients to the skin. The sheet mask act as a ‘second skin’, this close dermal contact encourages the skin to absorb the serum faster and more efficiently than traditional masks and creams. Depending on the ingredients used in each formula, sheet masks typically provide intense hydration and nourishment, and help repair damaged skin cells whilst simultaneously promoting the growth of new healthy skin cells.

Unlike ordinary hand and foot treatments, the nourishing serum is contained within a dual layered glove or bootie. The inner mask contains a nourishing serum packed with pure Plant Extracts, while the outer layer remains completely dry.

The dual layered hand and foot maks provide a continuous and concentrated dose of ingredients making them more effective than creams which begin to evaporate after being applied. Not only are dual layered masks more effective but they are easier to use. A dry outer layer means you can continue with daily activities while wearing the masks.

As the skin has a four-week regeneration period we recommend using a mask twice weekly for a month for best results. However, the Skin Republic products are safe to use as often as you like, except for the Foot Peel which used be used only every 6 weeks.
