Sheet masks have changed the skincare game for women on the go. While many of us love the treat of a clay or gel mask, let’s be honest: They’re messy. You have to spread product on your face with your hands or a sponge, try not to rub your shirt against your face at all for the 15-20 minutes you have it on, then rinse the product and rid your bathroom sink and shower of the reside. Or, you could lay a thin layer of material already cut to the shape of your face over your skin, let it sit with no mess or drip for the same amount of time, remove, and go on about your day. See now why sheet masks have become so popular, especially among travelers?

If you’re entering into uncharted territory when it comes to sheet masks, here’s a guide to the best ones to handle six different skin situations.

Sheet mask: Verso Intense Facial Mask

The word intense should give you a clue about the level of hydration this mask offers. Hydrogel technology in this mask provides up to 30 hours of moisturization after one 20 minute use and the addition of Retinol 8 stimulates the skin’s collagen production to leave you looking more youthful.

Sheet Mask: Sk-II Facial Treatment Mask

Women swear by this mask after flights because it works immediately to hydrate skin which tends to be left parched by the drying conditions of airplane altitudes. It’s also a relaxing way to calm down after TSA struggles and ease yourself into your trip.

Charcoal is a big buzz word in beauty right now, but what makes this mask perfect for your situation is the inclusion of arginine which detoxifies skin and tightens pores.
