Korean sheet masks are used to soak your face in healthy serums, and give you a variety of awesome skin-enhancing benefits. They’re relatively affordable, fun to use, and extremely hydrating.

But when it comes to fighting acne, you obviously need to look for Korean sheet masks that contain genuine acne-fighting ingredients.
