Yep, that’s right, we’re at it again with this lockdown business, which means it’s time to take advantage of all the downtime with a properly decent masking sesh.
If you’ve been battling some annoyingly persistent skin issues, now is the time to tackle everything from acne to dry and dull skin.
Whatever mood your skin’s in, we recommend replenishing your sheet mask stores stat – here are six of the best in the biz.
Best for acne-prone skin
ZitSticka Press Refresh Hydrogel Exfoliating Sheet Mask
If you’re prone to acne or even just the occasional breakout, this is a great mask to keep on hand for those days when your skin decides to throw a tantrum. Formulated with a mixture of AHAs, BHAs, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid and allantoin, this hydrogel mask is going to refine texture, minimise the chance for future breakouts and keep skin hydrated too.
Best for plumping fine lines and wrinkles
Samson & Charlie Perfection Watermelon Glow Hydrating Sheet Mask
Nothing plumps fine lines and wrinkles quite like hyaluronic acid. This sheet mask is packed full of the stuff as well as niacinamide, ceramides and amino acids to help minimise the visible signs of ageing. Simply pop this metallic pink pick on for a cool 15 minutes to experience the plumping, smoothing, brightening and hydrating effects of it’s highly potent serum.
Best for when you’re low on time
PHILOSOPHY Purity Bubble Detox Sheet Mask
Don’t have time for a leisurely 20 minute mask sesh? Then why not try this fun bubble mask offering that takes just three minutes to take effect. This express face mask combines the actions of a cleanser and a clarifying face mask, utilising charcoal to draw out impurities, dirt, makeup and oil.
Best for dullness
Garnier Skin Active Vitamin C & Pineapple Ampoule Tissue Mask
Skin in need of a glow boost? This pineapple and vitamin C-infused mask seriously impressed our Review Crew, who said that the five-minute pick helped to banish dullness, tired-looking skin and protected against pollutants too.
Best for dry skin
La Roche-Posay Cicaplast B5 Mask
Sometimes our skin just be thirsty, and that’s okay, because we’re lucky enough to live in a world where vitamin B5 exists. This vitamin B5-infused mask utilises the powerful hydrator as well as La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water to hydrate and nourish dry and sensitive skin.
Best for sensitive skin
SK-II Facial Treatment Mask
When your skin needs a treat that’s also a bit healthy, there’s no better option in our opinion than the cult SK-II Facial Treatment Mask. Enriched with pitera (which is rich in micro-nutrients like vitamins, minerals, amino acids and organic acids), skin is left intensely hydrated, clearer, brighter and protected.
