Sheet Masks FAQs
Get quick answers to all your top FAQs about face masks.
What is a Sheet Mask For?
A sheet mask's purpose is to provide rich hydration to your skin, alongside a set of nutrients that help your face to look and feel its best. Like skin or eye serums, face masks have a variety of formulas, each aiming for different effects, from minimising wrinkles to healing spots.
How Do You Apply A Face Sheet Mask?
Sheet masks can be applied anytime, day or night. They can be used in the morning to refresh your face or at the end of the day to restore. Throw out your sheet mask after using as they are single-use.
Open the packet and align the eye and mouth holes correctly and press the sheet onto your skin, starting at the forehead. Sit back and relax, while you leave the mask on as instructed on the product packaging. Leaving sheet masks on for too long can leave skin dehydrated.
Once you've removed the mask, cleanse your skin and apply moisturiser to maximise hydrating benefits.
Best Sheet Masks For Your Skin Type
Which Sheet Mask is Best For Oily Skin?
For oily skin, shop sheet masks that contain charcoal. To fight excess oil, shop for one of our best sheet masks to prevent spots and blemishes: Skin Republic Spots & Blemish Face Mask.
Which Sheet Mask is Best For Dry Skin?
If you have dry skin, a sheet face mask with aloe vera or shea butter will ensure you get the intense hydration your skin needs. You can also try a hydration focused formula face mask, like the Vichy Mineral 89 Instant Recovery Hyaluronic Acid Sheet Mask.
Which Sheet Mask is Best For Sensitive or Spot-Prone skin?
Sheet masks that contain antioxidants such as chamomile or vitamins E or C are ideal for those with sensitive or spot-prone skin. Chamomile has a calming effect on sensitive skin, which is common with dry skin, and vitamins E and C are key skin health nutrients for healing. These ingredients also lock in moisture, make dry skin feel soft, calm inflammation and reduce signs of ageing.
Should I Wash My Face After Using a Sheet Mask?
You should not wash your face straight after using a sheet mask. Sheet masks contain active ingredients that continue to work after the sheet mask is taken off. Just gently tap the moisture in and it should absorb.
Is A Green Tea Sheet Mask Good For Your Skin?
A green tea sheet mask is great for your skin thanks to the amazing properties of green tea: it is antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial. Essentially it contains everything you need to clean and clear your skin, soothing it from any irritation. Add in the hydrating benefits of sheet masks and you'll be giving your skin a top-level pampering.
