Taking time out of your busy schedule to reflect and recharge is an essential part of a balanced, healthy lifestyle. Whether you’re new to meditation or practice regularly, it can be hard to find to set the time aside to stand still. Might we suggest a little mindful multitasking? Using a sheet mask while meditating not only helps you feel relaxed, but the added benefits for your skin are palpable, and you’ll find yourself ending your practice looking and feeling ready for the week ahead. Check out our favourite face masks, from luxury to eco-friendly.
Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask – Charlotte Tilbury
This unconventional dry mask brightens, lift and moisturises skin. It’s perfect for a more active meditative practice, as the mask is held in place with holders over the ears. The moisturising ingredients are activated and released when the mask is lightly massaged into the skin.
Anti-Oxidant+ Face Mask – Karuna
Made using entirely natural ingredients and derived from wood pulp, this anti-oxidising face mask moistures and softens skin using a gentle serum. Owing to the addition of detoxifying Vitamin B and a range of peptides, the serum acts as a barrier from impurities and toxins found in the air.
Yarrow Lavender Sweet Dreams Mask – Florapy
This all-natural coconut fibre mask has a heady, aromatic lavender scent, lulling wearers into a deep sense of relaxation and calm. The hydrating lavender and yarrow flower hydrate and restore, leaving skin supple and soft.
Facial Treatment Mask – SKII
If you’re looking for immediate effects, this is the mask for you. The SKII facial treatment mask evens complexions and boosts hydration and moisture in the skin. The kind-to-skin formula can be used regularly (up to twice a week) for continued and lasting effects.
Detoxifying Hydrogel Mask – Erno Laszlo
Standing out from your conventional sheet masks made of paper, this detoxifying mask is made of a gel, allowing a glove-like fit. It can be placed in the fridge for a cooling effect. The mask comes in two pieces, one for the top and bottom of your face – though this makes for a slightly trickier application, once in place, the no-slip formula detoxes, soothes and lifts the skin with ease.
Flower Fusion Lavender Soothing Sheet Mask – Origins
This single-use, natural mask is derived from bamboo and strengthened with flower wax. The gentle formula calms and soothes skin, and is suitable for all skin types. The use of lavender essential oil contributes to a healthy complexion and even skin-tone.
Moisture Bomb Sheet Mask – Garnier Skin Active
Looking for a 15-minute face-over? This water-based face mask hydrates skin in no small measure – each mask contains the equivalent of half a bottle of hydrating serum. It’s also free of parabens (known to cause dry skin), so with regular use, you should see lasting effects.
It’s Real Squeeze Sheet Mask – Innisfree
This popular Korean skincare brand is well-known for their face masks. Their It’s Real series are made of triple-layered artificial silk and are available in 15 scents. They can be used daily, thanks to their gentle formulas – and with all the different choices, you’re likely going to want to stock up.
Dermask Water Jet Vital Hydra Solution – DR JART+
Free from parabens, sulfates and the addition of any artificial fragrance, the DR JART+ face masks promote collagen and support moisture. They are suitable for all skin types but particularly effective for those looking to combat redness and dry skin.
Snail Bee High Content Mask Pack – Benton
Slightly alkaline, the cotton mask nourishes and hydrates skin, evening tone and texture through the use of snail mucus and bee venom. Bear with us – though it might sound strange, these quirky ingredients are proven to combat acne.
