Whether you have normal, dry, oily, sensitive or combination skin, we've got the sheet face mask for you.

The basis principles of skincare state that there are five different skin types; normal skin, oily skin, dry skin, combination skin and sensitive skin.

While it's easy to tell which you are, many people fail to tailor their skincare regimes to their skin type – and this includes the use of sheet masks.

Sheet face masks are – quite frankly – amazing, and we won't hear anything against them. But it is important to use the right one for your skin.

We've rounded up the face masks you should be using based on your skin type:

Oily skin

What to buy: e.l.f’s Oil Control sheet mask, £3

This sheet mask does what it says on the packaging, controls your oil levels. If you’re prone of oily skin, this mask will stop shine by providing lightweight moisture to the skin. The mask is Kaolin Clay-infused, which absorbs the oil in the skin – and the price won’t break the bank either.

Dry skin

What to buy: Seoulista’s Beauty Super Hydration Instant Facial, £7.99
