Sheet masks are a convenient and cost-effective way to nourish and rejuvenate your skin but with so many different options available, it can be overwhelming to choose the right one for your needs.

So you can get the most out of your sheet mask experience, we’ve put together this comprehensive guide to help you make an informed decision about which sheet mask is right for you. Let’s dive in!

Know Your Skin Type

The best place to start on your sheet mask journey is to work out your skin type. The most common types include oily, dry, sensitive and combination skin and each skin type has different characteristics. People with oily skin are likely to have bigger pores, a shiny complexion and can be prone to acne and people with sensitive skin tend to experience redness and irritation. Dry skin often feels tight and can look dull or flaky and people with combination skin usually suffer from both dryness and oiliness. Knowing which category your skin falls into means you can narrow down your options and choose a mask that is tailored to your specific needs.

Work Out Your Skin Concerns

Once you’ve worked out your skin type the next step is to identify your specific skin concerns. Are you experiencing dehydration, sensitivity, redness and irritation, or are you looking to combat fine lines and wrinkles? Each mask is designed to tackle different issues so pinpointing your current skin concerns will help you choose a mask that contains the right ingredients to target your issues.

Check The Ingredient List

There’s a sheet mask for every budget but this means that the quality of ingredients can differ greatly. Cheaper masks are more likely to contain alcohol, synthetic fragrances and sulphates which can irritate and inflame your skin. To avoid this, look for good quality sheet masks that contain natural and plant-based ingredients such as allantoin, avocado oil, jania rubens extract and bacillus ferment as active ingredients like these will provide your skin with soothing, calming and restorative benefits.

Pay Attention to the Sheet Material

When choosing a sheet mask, it’s important to take note of the sheet material as this will greatly determine the results you will achieve. Common sheet materials include cotton, hydrogel, bio-cellulose and microfiber and each mask type provides a different outcome. GLIST sheet masks are made from a semi gel cellulose material which helps the mask sit tightly on your skin so the active ingredients can be transported deep into your pores for long-lasting hydration.
