Sheet masks are a great way to get the benefits of treatments that are made in liquid form because the sheet allows the product to have direct contact with the skin for a period of time. Think of sheet masks as a protective blanket for your skin, only you can fill them with skin-adoring ingredients, like coconut oil and aloe vera gel.

For dry skin, try a mixture of coconut water, five drops of coconut oil, and half a teaspoon of honey and 5 drops of lavender essential oil. Coconut oil and water are naturally hydrating, while honey helps to lock moisture into the skin.
For those of you with sensitive skin, a cool cup of chamomile tea mixed with one tablespoon of aloe vera gel and three drops of olive oil will calm any redness or irritation. The aloe vera gel in combination with the olive oil is a surefire way to combat any dryness as well.
Anyone with an acne-prone complexion should try a mixture of 1/4 cup of witch hazel, 3/4 cup of water, and one teaspoon of aloe vera gel. Witch hazel has been used for centuries to aid troubled skin, and since acne is often accompanied with irritation, a bit of aloe vera gel will help to soothe that irritation and redness.
