Winter Skin Treat: Best Sheet Masks

At this time of year, the switch between cold weather outside and central heating indoors can lead to dry, irritated skin. One of the best ways to combat this (alongside drinking plenty of water and eating a healthy, balanced diet) is to treat your skin to a sheet mask once a week. Here, I share my favourites…

While I don’t love the miserable weather at this time of year, there’s something so cosy about the long dark evenings in. However, I’m not a fan of the effects the central heating and cold, windy weather can have on skin. I always make sure I’m drinking plenty of water and eating a vitamin-rich diet, but it’s more important than ever when winter hits. Drinks like Skinade can really help, which you’ll start seeing the benefits of after 30 days of use; it’s a simple daily powder sachet that you add to water (the extra water will help, too). On the skincare side of things, what better to do with those cosy evenings in than indulge in a face mask? Here are a few of my favourite sheet masks…

5 of the Best Sheet Masks

Aurabsolu Hydrogel Sheet Mask, £12

This is one of my favourite stress-boosters. Infused with a blend of essential oils and Jasmine Absolute, this hydrogel mask gives skin an instant radiance boost, leaving the complexion looking and feeling smoother and brighter.

SK-II Facial Treatment Mask, £16

This luxury mask has a concentration of Pitera for a high-intensity hydration hit for instant results. The soft cotton mask feels cool and comforting on the skin.

Sarah Chapman Skinesis 3D Moisture Infusion Mask, £43

With hyarulonic acid, rose water, zinc and copper amongst the active ingredients, this mask not only provides extra moisture, but has anti-ageing benefits, too. One of my favourite go-tos for a skin pick-me-up, especially after I arrive home from a trip.

Colbert MD Illumino Anti-Aging Brightening Face Mask x 5, £85

The Lactic Acid in these masks naturally exfoliates and reduces pigmentation. These masks are great for a pre-makeup moisture treat, or for a restorative treatment post-laser treatment.

Skin Laundry Hydrating Radiance Facial Treatment Mask Box of Five, £38

With vitamins, amino acids, minerals and natural plant extracts, these soothing sheet masks are great to have in your hand luggage for an in-flight treat, or for when you land and need a moisture boost.
