Defeat Dull Skin With These 15 Reviving Sheet Masks

You don’t always have to head to the spa for an indulgent skincare treatment. Sheet masks make it easier than ever to give yourself a little pick-me-up at home. Not only are they affordable, but they also come in different options so you can choose one specifically for your skin’s needs. Whether you’re looking to moisturize dried-out skin or you want something pore-minimizing, we rounded up a list of soothing and refreshing picks that you can look forward to using.

You're 3 Ingredients Away From Clearer, Brighter Skin

While we love testing the hottest masks and skin care treatments on the market, nothing can beat a no-frills DIY . If you’re struggling with a dull, blemish-prone complexion, whip up an aspirin mask. The effective ingredient in aspirin is chemically similar to salicylic acid, which helps exfoliate skin. Just mix the over-the-counter medicine with three ingredients (you already have them!) for an affordable treatment that really works. Use it as a resurfacing paste, or leave it on for about five minutes as a mask. No matter how you use it, you’ll see clearer, softer, more radiant skin.

You will need:

  • Four or five uncoated, plain aspirin pills (Advil, Aleve, Tylenol, and the like won’t work)
  • A tablespoon or two of lukewarm water
  • Honey or plain yogurt (optional)


Mix the aspirin with just enough water to make a paste. If you want a thicker mask, then add a dollop of honey; if you prefer a more soothing mask, then some plain yogurt can do the trick. Apply the mask in a thin layer on your face, then allow it to dry. Remove it with warm water, rinsing away the mask in gentle circular motions.

Please note: Some people are allergic to aspirin, so try a patch test on your forearm before spreading this all over your face.

Lush's Latest Face Masks Feel Like the Slime You Played With in the '90s

Lush consistently entertains us with new, fun, brightly colored beauty products. Now, with the launch of the brand’s newest product, the Jelly Face Mask, Lush is taking us back to our childhoods.

The new masks are inspired by some kickass women in Lush’s history (including the creator of the Bath Bomb herself!). The products are also packed with mineral-rich seaweed to nourish your skin. Perhaps best of all is that the masks have the same consistency of the squishy slime you made at camp as a kid and probably now watch videos of on Instagram to de-stress.

To use the mask, pinch off some of the jelly and rub it between dry hands. Apply it to the skin and leave on for 10 minutes before washing off. Read on to find out which masks you should pick up in select stores or online when the line launches Sept. 1.
