Masks are an extra step to hydrate, brighten, or clean your skin, and they're no longer limited to a lazy Sunday. The me-time staple has evolved to fit more need, including your Netflix binge-watching schedule. Thank to the new menu of no-rinse formulas and upgraded classics, your home-spa options are more customized than ever.
Sheet: Why pick it? No-rinse convenience
How it works: Materials like paper and hydrogel (a biodegradable jelly) prevent the serums in these masks from evaporating, which means more time for your skin to absorb the active ingredients. Drape a mask over your entire face (think of it as the beauty version of a hockey mask) or apply patches on targeted areas, like under eyes.
Good to know: Ideal for travel. Devotees have been known to wear them to combat dry air.
