It can get confusing when searching for the sheet mask that is right for you, especially since not all sheet masks are created equal. So how do you pick the right one and get the results you want to see? Simply put, you should be looking for the active ingredient in the sheet mask that is the best match for your skin type. Here’s what we recommend:

Skin Type : Sensitive
You should try to find masks that have natural ingredients such as honey, aloe, or lavender. These ingredients are both soothing and hydrating. Masks to avoid are ones with fragrance, essential oils or products that contain drying or volatile ingredients such as isopropyl, mint extract or citrus extracts. Klair’s Rich Moist Mask or Banila’s Ms. Flower & Mr. Honey Hydro Gel masks are some of our favorites. 
Skin Type: Dry
We advise that you use sheet masks that have aloe, honey or humectants. We’ve found masks with hyaluronic acid, like the Aqua Collagen mask from Nature Republic are the best for treating dry skin. The unique formula helps your skin retain water 100 times its weight and will reduce the appearance of fine lines. Even if you do not have fine lines now, this preventive approach will delay them from forming.
Skin Type: Oily
Excess sebum production is one of the main reasons why people have oily skin. Sebum is an oily secretion from glands in your skin that help protect and waterproof your skin. However an excess production of sebum can lead to oily skin- or worse yet, acne! For this skin type, you’d want to find a sheet mask that will help minimize your pores. We like Leader’s Step Solution Pore-Scaling Black Aqua Mask  or Mediheal’s Hydrating Charcoal Mask to tighten those pores and bid that t-zone goodbye.

Skin Type: Acne Prone
Masks with active Ingredients such as  Charcoal, tea tree, or snail extract should be your go-to masks to combat Acne. Charcoal's primary benefit is that it draws out dirt and impurities from your skin while tighten pores and reducing inflammation. Tea tree oil has long been a natural remedy to treat people with acne. Sheet masks infused with tea tree oil will help calm your skin while preventing future acne breakouts. Skincare products with snail extract are fairly new to the American market but have been popular in Korea for quite some time. Clinical trials have shown that snail extract improves skin condition by aiding the skin’s natural ability to hydrate itself while also stimulating the production of collagen and improving elasticity. A great product for managing acne is Acne patches. These patches are the latest trend in Korea and have been proven to zap pesky pimples as soon as they start appearing.
