Change Your Skin Care Game with These 8 Sheet Masks

Megan Reynolds

We love a mud mask as much as the next girl, but sometimes it’s nice to change it up. Mud masks are great for clarifying oily skin and giving you that tingly-clean, tight-pore feeling, but sometimes you want your treatment to do a little more for you. Enter the sheet mask, a potent beauty treatment from Korea that’ll cure whatever ails you, from dry skin to blemishes and everything in between. Traditional face masks rinse off, taking away all the benefits. With a sheet mask, the thin paper is soaked in skin-healing serums, which you don’t rinse off. Simply place the mask on your face, lay down for a little while and relax. Once you’re done, there’s no need to rinse your face – the serums on the mask have had time to really get into your pores, and the difference is noticeable. Skin is plumper, more radiant and softer – all very good things.

They’re easy, unintentionally creepy (try one and you’ll see what we mean), and really, really good for you. We know new things are intimidating, so we’re here to hold your hand. Ahead, a round up of some of the best sheet masks for every skin type.
