Sheet masks have been in all our latest beauty hauls because they are easy to use and super effective. Sheet masks come in sleek little packages, and they make perfect treats for goody bags, bridesmaids gifts, or holiday stockings. If you don’t know how to use a sheet mask, or need recommendations on the best choice for your skin type, keep reading for the sheet mask scoop on all our favorites!
How to Identify Your Sheet Mask Needs
We have a sheet mask for every type and concern. It is important to identify your skin type first so that you can select a sheet mask that will have the biggest impact on your skin. For example, dry skin would benefit from key ingredients like honey, glycerin, and hyaluronic acid. If your skin has been seeking revenge on you from all those late nights with Ben & Jerry’s, go with calming ingredients like oatmeal and aloe vera; they can help control sebum leading to less breakouts and smoother skin.
Speaking of sebum, oily skin loves kaolin, charcoal, tea tree and citrus essential oils for mellowing out the shine. If your skin falls more in the “neutral” realm #treatyourself to something illuminating. Look for a natural sheet mask that incorporates tropical fruits like papaya, pineapple and lime. Different natural ingredients create a variety of mask results; we’ll go more in-depth and describe our sheet masks in detail so you can pick the best one (or two or three) for your skin.
Korean Sheet Mask Guide
Does It All Sheet Mask
Looking for a one-stop-shop in the form of a sheet mask? Look no further than our Does It All Natural Sheet Mask. This mask is high in aloe and hyaluronic acid. Aloe soothes, nourishes and heals, while the hyaluronic acid is deeply hydrating and plumping. Hyaluronic acid is considered a miracle anti-aging product because just a single gram of HA can hold up to six thousand times its weight in H2O, keeping skin looking and feeling hydrated, even after a long day in heat. Hyaluronic acid along with the retinol provide anti-aging benefits. HA promotes and supports collagen which keeps our skin looking youthful and supple.
This face mask is also packed with some serious anti-aging ingredients. Collagen naturally decreases as we age resulting in sagging skin and wrinkles. Retinol addresses this issue and the caffeine gives skin a much-needed energy boost for an instant tightened result. The benefits don’t stop there; this is our “does it all” sheet mask for a reason. We’ve incorporated sake, vitamin C, grapefruit and licorice into the formula for a smoother complexion and brightening effect. Finally, florals and herb extracts balance, soothe and reduce inflammation for a spa-like finish that feels just as good as it looks.
Wrinkle Smooth Sheet Mask
Smoother skin is just a mask away with our natural Wrinkle Smooth Sheet Mask. There are many reasons we might desire smoother skin – aging, blemishes, enlarged pores or even dry skin. This mask comes at smoothing from all angles for the best results. We included some natural exfoliants to buff away flakes and dullness in the form of orange peel oil and grapefruit. They are gentle, natural exfoliants complete with skin smoothing effects and brightening properties.
To physically even out the skin by tightening fine lines and wrinkles, this mask contains retinol, hyaluronic acid and caffeine. These increase circulation and blood flow, effectively bringing more nutrients to the skin, while visibly hydrating, plumping and tightening fine lines on the face. The CoQ10 helps prevent and protect further skin damage with powerful topical antioxidants. Honeysuckle, ylang ylang, and everlasting floral extracts soothe and provide a calming anti-inflammatory sensation, nourishing the skin to fight blemishes. Even if anti-aging isn’t your primary concern, with all the hydrating and soothing benefits of this mask, we recommend it for dry, irritated and sensitive skin types.
Collagen Boost Sheet Mask
This skin plumping, mega hydrating mask is a must for those with dull, dry, or crepey skin. The ingredients in this facial mask support collagen production. Collagen is a major protein in skin, responsible for firmness, elasticity, and suppleness in skin -- three major markers of youthful skin. This mask is also packed with some serious intense plant based skin hydrators, making it fitting for any skin type.
Revitalizing ginseng, retinol and vitamin c: three vital ingredients for stimulating collagen and elastin production to lessen the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and to increase firmness. Water quenching aloe juice and hyaluronic acid lock in long lasting hydration while rosehip oil softens and improves skin texture. Citrus essential oils of grapefruit and blood orange brighten and energize.
Anti-Acne Sheet Mask
We all know how it goes; we break out, stress out about breaking out, then break out some more. Such is life – but we’ve got a mask for that. The Anti-Aging Sheet Mask has soothing ingredients like rosemary and parsley, willow bark and witch hazel; these blossoms have super soothing and sebum controlling components to bring your skin back to balance. Tea tree oil kills bacteria on the surface and reduces inflammation in any stubborn bumps. To treat acne, dirt and debris currently active within the skin, we infused salicylic acid to help clarify and reduce breakouts. Argan oil, hyaluronic acid and aloe soothe and hydrate skin and round out this mask for the perfect balance of clarification and hydration.
Deep Hydration Sheet Mask
Wooh-sah with this ultra-relaxing, hydrating and calming face mask. A deluxe pamper-me treat, our Deep Hydration Sheet Mask is loaded with aloe leaf juice. Aloe is healing, hydrating and calming and helps to soothe skin conditions including itchiness, dryness, burns, scarring and blemishes with regards to rashes and breakouts. Combined with cucumber, this mask is very cooling on hot, sunburned or inflamed skin. The hydrating cucumber in this sheet mask is responsible for a number of benefits. It is naturally jam-packed with silica which helps to firm sagging skin, but the hydration in the cucumber keeps skin nourished and plump. We’re sure you’ll love the added cucumber benefit of sun protection and de-puffing.
Another wow ingredient in this mask is ginseng. Used for centuries in skin care and as a digestif, ginseng has powerful anti-aging properties and supports collagen production. This benefit results in visibly toned skin and a subtle brightened effect. Beta-glucan reduces redness while ceramides keep skin strong and bonded to allow moisture to penetrate to the innermost layer of the skin. Fatty acids from the everlasting flower oil and carrot seed oil help to enhance moisture absorbing properties, especially in mature or severely dry skin. This mask is basically a 20-minute face lift in a packet. Need we say more?
100% PURE sheet masks are made of sustainable, naturally antibacterial bamboo cloth.
How to Use Your Sheet Mask
First, choose the environment where you plan on wearing your mask. This bit is totally up to you! You can lounge on your couch, in your bed, on your patio, even in your yard (sorry not sorry, neighbors) -- but we prefer a steamy environment. If you don’t have access to a sauna or natural mineral spring (in a perfect world, we all would), opt for a steamy bathroom. This will open your pores to accept and absorb the nutrients in your sheet mask.
PRO TIP: Leave your masks in the refrigerator before use, for a deliciously cooling, soothing, and tingling effect. A cool sheet mask is also great for reducing puffiness in the face and eye area.
Deeply cleansing skin before using a face mask is crucial. You can remove makeup with the Blood Orange Cleansing Balm, while also introducing skin softening nutrients from rich avocado butter. We recommend double cleansing before a mask; this means following your balm with a liquid cleanser like the moisturizing Coconut Oil Cleansing Milk or detoxifying, gently exfoliating Charcoal Clay Cleanser. This way you can ensure that skin is free of all makeup, sweat, dirt, and environmental toxins, while also being totally primed for absorbing vital nutrients and hydration from your sheet mask.
Apply the sheet mask to the face, in line with your features. Press gently around nostrils, jawline, and under eyes to ensure full contact with skin. Leave on the skin for 15-20 minutes while you relax, catch up on your favorite Netflix binge, or enjoy an afternoon nap.
Once the product is mostly absorbed into your skin, remove the mask. Treat the sheet mask liquid like a serum -- don’t waste any of it! Massage the excess solution into face, neck, and decollete. Do not rinse! Finish up with a moisturizer to seal in the sheet mask’s nutrients, for fabulously dewy, refreshed, and softened skin.
