9 Korean Sheet Masks That Treat Common Skin Concerns Writer Sofia Kim Swears By

Sheet masks have long been a staple in my skincare regime, particularly, the ones from Korean beauty brands. I have tried tons of them – whether targeted to provide hydration or aimed to unclog my pores – so it’s time I share with you the ones I always use whenever I face common skin concerns (dehydrated, dull and stressed skin are just some of the problems many of us face). Here, the ones you need to get now.

#1: Dr. Jart V7 Toning Mask, $38 for a box of five, Sephora
With a highly concentrated formula consisting of a seven-vitamin complex, this quickly delivers active ingredients to the skin to instantly tone, brighten and clear blemishes for a clearer-looking complexion. #2: Sulwhasoo Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Creamy Mask, $148 for a box of five
This anti-ageing mask is formulated with a cocktail of powerhouse ingredients such as ginseng root extract, which boosts collagen and hyaluronic acid production. It is also infused with ginseng flower extract to increase skin’s defensive properties and treats common skin concerns such as dryness, loss of firmness and dullness. #3: Innisfree Skin Clinic Mask (BHA), $3.50 for one sheet
Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) is an ingredient that helps to treat black and white heads, unclog pores and remove dead skin cells to reveal a smoother and softer complexion. It also contains anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, suitable for those with acne-prone skin. This fine, delicate cotton mask helps to improve my overall complexion. #4: Mamonde Skin Fit Mask (Daffodil), $6 for one sheet
Formulated with narcissus bulb, which is known for its water-storing benefits, this hydrating bio-cellulose mask deeply hydrates skin, leaving me with a plumper complexion. #5: Laneige Water Bank Double Gel Soothing Mask, $34 for a box of five
After a long day out in the sun, I love using this soothing mask as it helps calm my skin and fits closely to it to provide intensive moisture, leaving it feeling soft and supple for hours. #6: Caolion Pore Trouble Sheet Mask, $50 for a box of six, Sephora
This is made with tea tree oil, centella asiatica extract and propolis to calm and nourish troubled skin and even treats blemishes. #7: Etude House Dr. Ampoule Dual Black Mask (Skin Purifying), $6.90 for one sheet
This two-step pore care sheet mask is formulated with concentrated lotus water ampoule, charcoal ingredient and pore care essence to effectively unclog pores, brighten complexion and soothe skin. #8: Blithe Blue Zone Marine Intensive Mask Sea Cucumber, $46 for a box of eight, Sephora
This mask is made with sea cucumber extract and sea daffodil extracts to protect skin from environmental aggressors and leaves me with a more radiant complexion. #9: Moonshot GD Fantastic Shining Mask, $39 for a box of five, Sephora
This three-piece set comes with a cleansing foam, a sheet mask and an eye cream, making it the perfect solution whenever I travel. The skin-plumping sheet mask is definitely my favourite as it helps to soften and hydrate my skin. Main image: Like this?
