Using a sheet mask seems easy enough. Open up the wrapping, spread out the mask on your face and leave it on until it's time to remove it. How difficult can that be?

However, there is one common mistake that we are making with our sheet masks that many are probably unaware of, and that can cause dryness and irritation to our skin.
One of the most common mistakes when it comes to using sheet mask is none other than leaving it on for a longer time than recommended. We think that we should max out the essence on the sheet mask to reap its full benefits so we sometimes leave it on until it dries out, or worse still, the whole night, if we fall asleep with them on.
Leaving our sheet mask on longer than the recommended time can make our skin worse. Reverse osmosis takes place when the mask dries out and moisture will be drawn from your skin back onto the mask, resulting in dry skin and even skin irritation. Therefore, make doubly sure to remove your sheet mask once the recommended time is up, and sleeping with it on is definitely a big no-no.
