And the best bit? They work instantly to bring back radiance to holiday skin that’s probably had a few too many glasses of wine, not enough hours of sleep and too much fun in the sun.
If you need to amp up your glow to get you through the party season looking your perky best, add these sheet masks to cart.
For alcohol-affected skin
We’re not going to suggest you deny yourself a festive tipple or two at all those Christmas soirees, but just beware that alcohol has a nasty habit of leaving skin dehydrated and dull. If you’re drinking sugary drinks, you may also find yourself with a face full of breakouts the next day. Post-party and before you tuck yourself into bed, pop on a sheet mask that’s both hydrating and purifying.

Good to know: Vodka is one of the least-damaging alcohols for skin - drink it with soda water to keep the sugar levels down, too.
For tired skin
Last night was fun, but with barely a few hours of sleep under your belt, your skin is probably going to make you pay for it with a lacklustre, exhausted-looking appearance. You need a hit of brightening ingredients quick-smart.

For sun-damaged skin
Between all those backyard barbecues and pool parties, you probably forgot to reapply your sunscreen once or twice. Not great, for the long-term health of your skin or the short-term look of it. Soothe your sun-parched skin with calming, anti-inflammatory ingredients and lots of antioxidants to combat free radicals ASAP.

Top tip: Put your sheet mask in the fridge before applying it for an extra cooling treat.
For pre-party glowing skin
Putting a mask on before bed is kind of a habit, but the truth is, you’re wasting that gorgeous glow that comes straight after you apply one. Before your next Christmas party, begin your beauty routine with a sheet mask. That way you’ll start with a glowing base that just maybe doesn’t even need foundation or illuminator!

For a lunchtime fix
The busy holiday period takes its toll on skin. And chances are, you’re also more likely to slack a bit on your skincare routine because who has the time? Well, if you find yourself staring at a lacklustre face in the mirror by midday every day, throw on a dry sheet mask in your lunch break to bring your complexion back to life. This no-mess, no-drip invention is made for sneaking mid-work sheet sessions.
