Taking care of your skin becomes so much more important during summer when the sun’s rays become harsher and skin problems continue to rise. Uneven skin tone, blemishes, sun spots, and acne are common skin concerns during summer.

That’s why it’s essential to focus on soothing, refreshing, and moisturising ingredients during this season. Sheet masks are one of the quickest and best ways to pamper your skin during summer (especially if you keep them in the refrigerator). Here are four ingredients to look for in your sheet masks this summer.
