Orlando Bloom’s latest Instagram post looks like method acting for a serial killer movie, but relax, it’s just skincare.

On Tuesday, Bloom posted a slightly startling photo — for those unfamiliar with the latest in at-home dermatology, at least — depicting his face clad in a dripping, papery mask with openings for his eyes, nose, and mouth.

While it certainly looks like Pirates of the Caribbean actor is wearing the skin of his enemies over his face, Bloom is actually using a sheet mask. Originally from Korea, the product applies chemicals embedded in a cloth or paper mask to your face when you wear it for a period of time.
