Sheet masks that work wonders on sensitive skin
I would consider myself a sheet mask superfan. As someone with ultra-sensitive, rosacea-plagued skin, its reactions are about as outrageous as the ones we saw from Kramer on Seinfeld. Whilst the delicate nature of my complexion does confine me to certain tools and treatments, the humble sheet mask is one that I rely on time and time again when my face needs a little TLC – it’s one of the only things that I actually trust to nourish my complexion without triggering irritation.
Don’t go full steam ahead without reading the fine print, though - us sensitive skin types still need to take caution with the ingredients we’re slapping on, even when they come in sheet mask form. The last thing you want is for your self-care session to result in itchy, irritated skin that’s more inflamed than what you started with. My advice? Steer clear of artificial fragrances and heavy-hitting acids in favour of masks with refreshing, replenishing ingredients like aloe, cucumber and coconut. But don’t worry – soothing formulas aren’t your only options. We’ve found sheet masks infused with gentle ingredients that will help you to achieve a myriad of different skin goals so that you can work your way to your best complexion ever without fear of irritation. And if you are currently dealing with a round of redness, here’s a tip: work a jade roller over your mask once it’s on. Applying pressure will help to work the sheet’s serum deeper into your skin, plus, the sensation is so cooling you can almost hear your sensitive skin breathe a sigh of relaxed relief. Try it now, thank us later.
