Stress, pollution, partying, Trump--it's all taking its toll on your face. Which means your day-to-day cleansing and moisturizing routine isn't always enough to keep you looking as fresh and dewy as you once did. Clay masks deliver hydration and a blast of nutrients to your skin, but they can be as messy as a drunk text to your ex. Fortunately, you have an alternative: the tidy, serum-soaked sheet mask, which you can place on your mug during your next Netflix binge and then toss away 20 minutes later, your skin having absorbed all of its nourishing goodness in the meantime. Hailing from those grooming wizards in Korea, sheet masks are effective and easy -- and thanks to Instagram endorsements from the likes of Ricky Martin, Justin Bieber, and Cristiano Ronaldo, they're totally on trend. Here, six to get behind.
