If you are a regular reader than it will be no surprise to you that I am a big fan of sheet masks. Sheet masks started off gaining popularity in Asia and now they are becoming popular in the US. Sheet masks are a great way to give your skin a quick treat because they only need to be left on for 15-20 mins. Sheet masks are also great for travel because they are individually packaged and are disposable. There are tons of sheet masks to choose from, so you should be able to find one for your unique skin concerns. I know that it can sometimes be overwhelming to see so many different kinds of sheet masks so I decided to put together this guide. I hope this will help you navigate the world of sheet masks!
Brightening Sheet Masks
- Brightening masks are great for evening out your skintone, reviving dull skin, and improving the appearance of acne scars and age spots
- Words to look for are vitamin C, lemon, or arbutin

- I also have a First Impressions post about this mask link!
Moisturizing Sheet Masks
- Moisturizing masks are great for anyone with dry skin
- These masks are great to use during a flight because the recycled air on planes is know to dry out the skin
- Words to look for are honey, aloe, snail (I know it sounds gross, but it really works!), or hyaluronic acid

- The green (Lipidure) in the photo above mask can be found here link!
- The yellow (EGF) mask in the photo above can be found here link!
- Anti-Aging masks are great for those with more mature skin as well as anyone looking to prevent or delay signs of aging
- Words to look for are collagen, Coenzyme Q10, Syn-Ake (This is a man-made anti-aging compound that mimics the protein in snake venom.) and royal jelly
- The purple (Syn-Ake) mask in the photo above can be found here link!

I hope you have enjoyed my guide to sheet masks. I know that I only covered 3 types of masks, but I am hoping to write a part 2 in the future. All of the masks pictured came from www.skin18.com which is my favorite place to buy sheet masks. They offer great sales and they also have a great selection of freebies. They even have a section of freebies that you can order with free shipping (some freebies do require a minimum purchase and some do not require any purchase!) I had a lot of fun writing this and I cant wait to start on part 2! Please let me know if you have any questions about sheet masks in the comments below.
See you soon,
