As summer is over and the air is cooling down, your skin is going to become more vulnerable to acne. While less sunlight will mean fewer wrinkles and ageing spots, the atmospheric change could lower your mood and cause an inflammatory response to your skin. Luckily, there’s a simple solution that can help you to kill two birds with one stone. That being mask sheets.
Mask sheets are a godsend. They form part of a skincare regime and leaves your skin looking radiant whilst pampering you at the same time. The sheets not only take care of your complexion but also have an effect on your mental wellbeing. It’s a win-win if you ask me. Below are my favourites to incorporate into my regime this year.
Daily Care Facial by Eunyul
First on our list is a sheet by Eunyul. Rewarding your skin with a daily dose of nourishing ingredients, Eunyul mask sheets are a perfect solution for both normal and sensitive skin. They come in 14 different scents that provide a maximum moisturizing effect. Thanks to their cooling sensation, in the morning they can help you to feel more refreshed. Moreover, in the evening when they can be used to soothe irritated skin. My personal favourite is Aloe Vera, which calms redness and helps diminish acne. Perfect for regular use.
Wishful Chin Lift Sculpting
While mask sheets usually supplement a beauty routine and give your skin extra moisture, you can find some that can help you to achieve specific beauty goals. Next, this sheet is dedicated to those who hope to stop the signs of ageing. The Wishful sheet mask gives your skin a defined and youthful look. The sheets are packed with acetyl hexapeptide-8 which has a hydrating and lifting effect. Additionally, the sheets contain niacinamide which is responsible for minimizing fine lines. If you want to reduce nasal folds, you should give this one a try.
Oh K! Exfoliating Bubble Sheet Mask
If you’re after an instant glow-up, a bubble sheet mask should do the trick. This model by Oh K! is covered in serum that contains willow bark extract, which removes excess sebum and reduces pores. As the foaming agents react with oxygen, bubbles begin to form that deeply exfoliate the skin leaving it looking radiant and soft to the touch. Mask sheets are about self-care as much as they’re about replenishing your skin. This one is really fun to wear and was an Instagram hit sensation.
111SKIN’s Rose Gold Sheet Mask
On the pricey side, this mask was a trend among celebrities and influencers not so long ago. 111SKIN’s sheets don’t leave you disappointed. Luring you in with a promise to enhance the efficacy of other beauty products, it also offers a luminous complexion. Its hydrogel formula is soaked in skin-replenishing extracts. The rose extract has a soothing effect and contains antioxidants that protect the skin from external aggressors such as UV and pollution. The gold extract is responsible for the brightening effect, and Argireline reduces fine lines. If you’re looking for an alternative to a spa treatment, this is a must-have.
Holika Holika Pure Essence Mask Sheet (Rice)
Lastly, this Pure Essence mask is significantly cheaper than some competitors’ products but do not let the price fool you. Arguably one of the best mask sheets out there, it provides you with visible results straight away. If you struggle with dull skin and stubborn spots, the mask effectively moisturizes your skin in just under 20 minutes. Among the ingredients, there’s glycerin, which soothes skin irritation, and soybean seed extract believed to have anti-inflammatory properties. Try one of the 16 different scents and find out if it lives up to the hype.
Hopefully, this list gave you an idea of what to expect from mask sheets. Every beginner needs sheets added to their list – if not as a supplement, as a lazy-day substitute. Add them to your skincare routine and give yourself the self-care you deserve.
