Sheet masks are becoming an obsession in the beauty world, with everyone swearing by them. Some argue that they are game-changers in the world of skincare, while others believe they are overhyped. Facial sheet masks are soaked in moisturizing, smoothening, and brightening serums. They need to be applied to cleansed skin once or twice a week. A way to combat skin damage caused by ageing, pollution, and other factors, sheet masks are supposed to enrich the skin with nutrients and moisture. Hence, they are different from regular face masks.
Sheet masks are a mini-facial that will make skin glowing. A sheet mask helps to moisturize, plump, brighten, smoothen and hydrate skin. They are meant for dry, dull, patchy skin that needs a pick-me-up. While everyone has a different skin type, sheet masks can be ranked based on how well they deliver on their claims, and on whether they suit all skin types. Hence, the items listed here are safe buys for almost everyone out there.
The skincare regimen for oily skin is a hectic job! That extra oil in your face never seems to go away, the makeup always melts and appears like a disaster. Oily skin can become acne-prone. The only good thing about oily skin is, it ages slowly and you wouldn’t notice a wrinkle.
There is a myth that you do not have to go hard on moisturizing and hydrating if you have oily skin. Oily skin must be cleansed and hydrated. The excess sebum can store dirt and infect the skin pores. An amazing way to hydrate oily skin is with sheet masks. Sheet masks are a part of a Korean beauty routine and are made up of fabric or gel soaked in the serums that are loaded with extracts, essential oils and vitamins.
Innisfree Skin Clinic Mask – Vita C
This brightening mask contains Vitamin C, a component present in the most high-quality brightening serums. Great for smoothening away spots, this mask helps skin look plump and less uneven. Hence, it moisturizes skin and makes it glow without bringing whitening into the equation – a rarity in radiance-enhancing products today. This refreshing mask is great for long-term usage. Hence, it is one of the best sheet masks in India.
MOND’SUB Pomegranate+ Sheep Placenta Facial Mask Sheets
Most people would never even think of buying anything with sheep placenta-but this ingredient is a huge rage in Korea, with reports even suggesting that certain members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan swear by this protein-rich product. This is not without reason as the sheet mask in question here is by far the best on this list. It is a product that evens out all skin flaws, smoothens out patchiness and scars, brightens skin visibly, and makes it plump. It is a must-have because its effects last longer than other sheet masks. Not only that, it works well enough to make skin feel and look repaired, by moisturizing and nourishing it. While it did not harm my sensitive and acne-prone skin, if you have skin allergies or very sensitive skin, then it is best to be careful while purchasing this.
Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Mask – Rose
A safe and *relatively* natural product, this lovely mask is great for giving skin a soft, rosy glow, by driving out dullness from the skin with non-greasy hydration. This mask is best applied for around 30 minutes after a long day (on days when you feel like pretending you’re at a spa), and massaged into the skin, after which it should be left on instead of washed off. The results are quite clear the next morning when skin seems brightened simply because it is smoothened by hydration. The best part is that the skin feels soft and looks somewhat mattified, instead of oily. The mak smells divine.
Dermal Korea Q10 Collagen Essence Mask
If you need some major brightening and radiance, this is the product for you. This mask makes skin look bright after application. So, like most sheet masks, it is best to apply this the night before an event.
The Face Shop: The Solution Radiance Face Mask
Similar to the Innisfree Vita C mask mentioned above, this radiance mask is also enriched with Vitamin C and has similar claims of brightening and radiance. While its efficacy isn’t necessarily superior to the Innisfree variant, its results are similar, making it a good substitute for the Innisfree one. It has a more hydrating and skin-plumping product. Hence, it is one of the best sheet masks in India.
Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Mask – Lime
Most of us who go out in the heat and dust, need a mask that makes skin look blemish-free and brightened after pollution ravages it. This is that mask. Full of antioxidants, it refreshes skin and tones it beautifully. Perfect for clearing skin up, and making it look fresh, this mask takes a few hours to work, but the effects of it stay on the skin for at least a day or two.
Sephora Collection Face Mask – Pearl
While a little too expensive for a one-time sheet mask, this mask is the best one out of Sephora. It comes with radiance claims and delivers on that by making skin luminous. Sometimes compared to the famous SK II sheet masks, this mask helps highlight the skin, and hydrates it well, making it glowing and bright.
The Face Shop Real Nature Green Tea Face Mask
This is a mask that claims to be meant for irritated skin. It is a moisturizing mask. It tightens skin and leaves it feeling hydrated.
Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Mask – Tea Tree
This mask doesn’t break one out or harm the skin. Meant to clarify acne-prone skin, it brings visible changes to the skin, like pore-tightening, skin-clearing, or blurring out blemishes.
