When a skin emergency hits, we can't think of any other product that can do the job quicker than a reliable sheet mask. Yep, no matter what struggle your skin is in at the moment, there's a mask out there that can help solve it. And just so you're always prepared, here's a quick guide for you:
For rehydrating dry skin:
Almost all sheet masks are hydrating, but for that extra surge of moisture, go for one that's jam-packed with the right ingredients. Keep an eye out for hyaluronic acid, royal jelly, and humectant substances such as glycerin!
TRY: Lululun Moisture Enrich Face Mask, P295 for 7 sheets, Beauty Bar
For soothing after an allergic reaction:
Masks with aloe vera and green tea extracts will aid in calming your irritated skin. We don't recommend using a new product right after a breakout, though, so test the mask on a good skin day to see if your skin likes it!

To control oil production, use a pore-treating mask that'll hydrate your skin but give you a matte finish. Masks with egg extracts, for example, tightens the pores for a shine-free day ahead.
