All that recycled cabin air coupled with a potential climate change when you land in your holiday destination can cause serious damage to your skin. From a dry, dehydrated mess to a dull-looking complexion, the possibilities of distressed skin are endless whenever you're on a holiday.
Luckily, sheet masks exist – travel-friendly face masks created to soothe or treat any skin issues, leading them to become in-flight and vacation must-haves ever since. So if you’re heading someplace where you know your skin might suffer this holiday season, we round up the best sheet masks you should bring on your upcoming trip.
Leaders Insolution Aquaringer Treatment Mask
It’s like getting a hydrating facial, but for lesser cost and time. The Leaders Aquaringer Treatment Mask is a cult favourite among travellers for three reasons: it’s affordable, provides intense nourishment and instant relief, and minimises fine lines. What more can you ask from a “cheap as chips” sheet mask that packs a punch?
We all know how hectic tour schedules, dry cabin air, and lack of sleep can affect our skin. That is why if you’re in need of a brightening mask that gives your skin a boost of hydration too, we recommend the Sephora Collection Rose Face Mask. With natural rose, rice, and broccoli extracts, your complexion will look and feel plumped up, refreshed, and more luminous in 20 minutes or less.
Dr. Jart Water Replenishment Cotton Sheet Mask
If you have sensitive skin, Dr. Jart’s Water Replenishment Sheet Mask not only hydrates skin, but soothes and calms down redness too. Infused with chamomile flower water, marine collagen, witch hazel extract, and cactus extract, this mask will leave your skin clean, hydrated, and refreshed – perfect for long-haul flights or whenever you need a quick pick-me-up.
Weirded out about the idea of snail slime on your face? You’ll immediately forget all about it once you experience its effects on your complexion. Tony Moly’s Snail Hydrogel Sheet Mask contains a high concentration of snail essence to rehydrate, soften, repair, and brighten your skin. Paired with seaweed and sea algae extract, your dull, dehydrated skin won’t stand a chance against this gel-based face mask.
SK-II Facial Treatment Mask
For those of you who love to pamper your skin with something luxurious while travelling, the SK-II Facial Treatment Mask is the perfect one for you. With a high concentration of Pitera in one mask, your skin will immediately be drenched in moisture, resulting in a visibly radiant and crystal clear complexion. And the best part? This mask has a ton of essence in one packet, which means you can still get a lot of uses out of it after you’ve used up the sheet mask.
Everyone’s favourite serum is now in a sheet mask form. If you want to take your beauty sleep to the next level, the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair PowerFoil Mask will do just that. With two times more hyaluronic acid, this innovative foil sheet mask delivers a surge of liquid revitalisation to your skin. So when you remove it, you'll look like you had eight hours of sleep!
