We can probably all agree that good skin is the center of every great beauty look. Sure, makeup can enhance the face and trick the eye, but no amount of foundation can replace a healthy complexion. Unfortunately, skincare takes time to show results—unless you’ve got a cheat sheet. For insta-radiant, party-perfect skin, all you need is the right prep: a sheet mask.

Sheet masks are the ultimate skincare shortcuts. They boost glow, calm redness, and plump up the skin with intense hydration. All in under 20 minutes! Honestly, we can’t think of anything better to do before a Christmas party (masks are up there with merlot).

Ready to put your best face forward? Consider these 6 sheet masks your pre-game for glowing skin.
