The short answer is yes, yes you can!
Sheet masks are easily the simplest and fastest way to hydrate your skin. While you may think that applying one every day is a bit too much, think again! In Korea, there is something called the "one day, one pack" method, and many K-pop idols swear by sheet masking every day for a month as their secret to getting the clearest, dewiest skin possible before a big performance.
In fact, there is a Reddit thread where people discussed the benefits of using a sheet mask every single day. Here are some of them:
1. Sheet masking is great for skin care newbies
New to skin care? Masking is a great way to begin sorting out what your skin does and does not like! A Reddit user, gothickornchic, notes, "What I love most about sheet masking, however, is that I can customize my routine daily without dropping $30 on a bottle of something that may or may not work. I can spend $1 and usually tell what it's going to do for my skin and whether or not I want to keep more in my stash."
2. Sheet masking can really help with dehydrated skin
Reddit user, GreenEmeraldine, writes, "I have dry skin that does not respond to heavier moisturisers and cannot be satiated with layers of light lotions, serums and essences. I tried to make it work for years until two months ago while doing my weekly sheet masks it dawned on me that I could do this everyday instead. I have never looked back since ..."
Also, due to the material of the sheet mask, it forces the essence and any products you've applied beforehand to be absorbed into the skin, replacing the need to layer on multiple products afterwards. "Sheet masking daily has drastically reduced my dehydration more than regular products can. I have a hard time with moisturizers so force-feeding my skin with a hydrating sheet mask on top of lighter essences/serums/ampoules really leaves my skin plump, glowing, and hydrated." A Reddit user writes.

3. Sheet masking sessions help you wind down every night
A Reddit user mentioned that, aside from the skin-benefitting aspects, using a sheet mask also helps her wind down at the end of each day. "Honestly I feel like the largest benefit for me with masking daily is psychological. Adding (at least) 20 minutes of me time into every day is a huge relaxer. My job is quite stressful so having a night time routine of pampering helps me let that stress go so I can function better." writes mysecretlanguage.
Now that we know the benefits of sheet masking, the next step is to assess your skin concerns, and choose the right products that will target your specific needs. Here, we break down the best sheet masks to use for five common skin concerns:
