best sheet masks for your skin type

Got a T-zone like the Sahara? There’s a sheet mask for that. Pores looking a little turnt-up? There’s a sheet mask for that too. There are so many different sheet masks, and like kids in a candy store, we want to try each and every one of those delicious, instantly gratifying options. Finding the best sheet masks for a fun few minutes of downtime is easy. Finding the best sheet masks to optimize our particular skin type? A bit more tricky. Our friends at Free People are helping us naviagate with this simple and shoppable guide…

Short on time but high on skincare needs? Lucky you — sheet masks are on the rise and primed to only get bigger, more specialized and more effective. Another lucky turn? These babies are super affordable, easy to use, and come in so many different varieties/ingredient combinations that you could probably use a new one every day for five years and still have versions you’ve never heard of. (But don’t do that — your skin would be VERY confused.)

If you have dry, sensitive skin…

…try ENATURE’s Squeeze Green Watery Sheet Mask. They’re not joking around when they call this thing “green” and “watery” — and that’s a good thing. Packed with chlorophyll and parsley, two dryness-fighting, moisture-packed green machines, these sheet mask is like a big glass of green juice straight to the face.

If you need some light exfoliation…

…try Joanna Vargas’ Dawn Mask. Physical scrubs can often do more harm than good, especially if you’re going about it with a heavy hand. Instead, rely on an acid-based exfoliant, like the mandelic acid in this mask, to gently slough away dead skin. No more dead skin means skin can regenerate quicker, which means a smoother, more even texture.

If your skin is stressed and irritated…

…try the Cicaherb Restore Sheet Mask from ENATURE. Kick environmental skin stressors in the butt with this mask’s main ingredient: centella asiatica, an herb that’s been used for centuries to reduce swelling and improve circulation, treat wounds, and calm topical flare-ups.

If your skin needs a quick pick-me-up…

…try ENATURE’s Bio-Zeup Sheet Mask. Soaked in an essence that’s packed with fresh paprika extract (antioxidant, antifungal, antibacterial) and lactobacillus ferment (the good bacteria), this sheet mask will leave you with instantly refreshed, glow-y skin.

If your skin needs a bit of plumping…

…try the Forever Glow Mask from Joanna Vargas. Forgot to drink your eight glasses of water yesterday? Have no fear, Joanna Vargas (and her masks) are here. Let this masks olive leaf extract, algae extract and rose water work their plumping, hydrating magic on your thirsty face to seriously refresh your skin.

If your pores bother you…

…try Whamisa’s Sea Kelp Mask. Make like the little mermaid and embrace the power of ocean plants. Seriously, kelp not only soothes and hydrates skin, it also works to remove toxins, clean out your pores and reduce inflammation. The seaweed is always greener indeed.

If your sensitive skin needs to be restored…

Joanna Vargas’ Euphoria Mask is your best bet. “Euphoria” may be a strong word for how you feel about your skin but after donning this sheet mask for a bit, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a word that better describes how you’ll react, particularly if you started with a red, irritated face. Thanks to calming ingredients like calendula, rose water and ginkgo biloba, the bamboo mask calms and nourishes angry skin. One of the best sheets masks for sensitivity.

If your skin is looking a little “meh”…

…try ENATURE’s Vita 8 Nutritive Mask. “Meh” shouldn’t ever be how you feel about the state of your face but I get it—some days are better than others! Thankfully, the essence this mask is soaked in is so chock full of vitamins (C, E, F, H, B5, B6, B9 and B12) and nutrients that, upon removal, you’ll barely recognize your newly-energized and refreshed skin.

  2. These are great sheet mask recommendations! You recommend a lot of Joanna Vargas’ masks that I still haven’t tried but I really want to as I’m doing the #365MasksChallenge where I test 1 mask a day for a year. My skin type is combo but sometimes it’s sensitive so I’ll definitely have Joanna Vargas’ Euphoria Mask in mind. Thanks for the recommendation!
