Since they burst onto the mainstream beauty scene a few years ago, Korean sheet masks are still as popular than ever. And though you once had to trek all the way to Koreatown to find the biggest selection, many of the best Korean sheet masks are now available to buy on Amazon.
There are sheet masks formulated to treat every type of skin concern — dehydration, a loss of elasticity, acne, inflammation — so when shopping for one, it's important to know exactly what you're hoping to get out of it. If you're dealing with a breakout, for example, applying an oil-infused mask for dry skin might actually make things worse — so always be mindful of ingredients and labels.
Be sure to apply your sheet mask onto clean skin to reap the full benefits. Applying a few swipes of toner beforehand can help the ingredients work better, but otherwise, it's best to start with a bare canvas. After you've taken off your sheet mask, rub the excess serum left in the packet onto your face, neck, and décolletage. Follow up with a moisturizer to seal it all in.
Another hot tip is to store your sheet masks in the fridge. Not only will that help them stay fresher, but it will also feel like a refreshing treat on your skin, especially if you're using your mask to help quell redness or inflammation.
