I am a sheet mask fanatic. This Korean trend that is now The Beauty must is my favorite way to tackle skin issues without the mess of regular masks. Sure you might look a bit like Hannibal Lector or Jason but hey, don’t look in the mirror.
Beyond the weird look factor, the differing types of masks can be overwhelming. So here’s my guide to which masks to buy (regardless of brand) based on your skin issues.
You can really pick any brand although some brands have more options than others. For newbies I recommend going for affordable brands you can find at Ulta or Sephora or even drug stores (any place from Walmart to CVS sells them although with more limited options). Brands I like are Tony Moly, Miss Spa, Skinfood, Yesto, Sephora Band and Boscia.
Acne/Oily Skin- Masks with these ingredients are good for handling acne flare-ups and oily skin
Tee Tree- great for healing the skin and acne
Anything with the word Detox or Clarifying- Anything that helps with cleaning out pores is good for you
Charcoal- also great at detoxifying
Rice- great for helping with oily skin
Red Wine- pore tightening
Cucumber- also great for pores
Aloe- great for helping with acne
Dull Skin- these masks are all wonderful for helping with dry skin issues and bringing out a glowing and brightening tone
Proposes and Bee
Dry skin/Wrinkles- Masks with these ingredients help soothe dry skin and attack wrinkles
Now go experiment away and try not to scare anyone with your masks!
