I'm a face mask fiend, especially when it comes to the slightly terrifying-looking, always-effective sheet mask category. I love that there is no scrubbing or washing involved! And sure, I might look like Jason from Friday the 13th for a good 10 minutes, but the glow my skin retains afterwards makes me feel confident enough go nude — on my face at least — for the world to see.

There are cloth sheet masks, and then there are gel sheet masks. Personally, I favor the gel because of the cooling sensation they offer. They're also a lot easier to place (and keep put!) on your face. When has a great option made out of fermented coconut that will cost you $7 a mask, but we discovered you can make your own version, too.

Rice paper is a great way to customize the mask so it fits perfectly on your face. Rice has a ton of great benefits, but for this particular mask, it helps to control sebum, so it helps to mattify oily skin, and it's also anti-inflammatory, so you'll notice that it helps take down any redness or swelling you might have. (Basically, it's great after all the sodium you consumed at Taco Tuesday.)

What to do: steep 4 green tea bags because this is what you're going to soak the rice paper in. We all know green tea is basically a miracle elixir, and it's going to make your skin glow, baby, glow! To help infuse a ton of moisture into this mask, make sure you apply a generous amount of your favorite serum on your skin, too. I personally love Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Serum.

Let me know if you end up trying this mask. Personally, I loved how my skin was brighter afterwards, and although my skin was matte, it didn't feel dry or like it was about to crack.
