Our skin type – whether it be normal, combination, oily, dry, or sensitive – is the general guide for our beauty routine. But did you know that different parts of our faces have different needs? While that cleanser and moisturiser works wonders on your whole complexion, it’s another story when it comes to masking and exfoliating which is meant to target specific skin issues.
Masking works wonders on your skin. But contrary to popular belief that each skin type only needs one
mask, different parts of your face actually have different needs. This is where multi-masking comes in. Multi-masking is the use of two or more masks in different areas of your face to give each section the attention it needs. For example, if your T-zone is suffering from breakouts and you have dryness on your cheeks, you wouldn’t want to slather on a purifying clay mask all over, right? While that may help with your T-zone, it may overly dry your cheek area, that may lead to breakouts there (yikes!).
If you’re new to the realm of multi-masking or are looking for excellent mask combinations, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Ahead we have 5 different mask combinations to suit a variety of skin needs, and they all make use of The Body Shop’s Superfood Mask collection
; products that contain only the best 100% vegetarian ingredients from around the world, and don't have any parabens, parrafins, silicones, and mineral oils!
You’ve conquered your acne, but now you’re left with acne marks and pigmentation all over your skin. Fret not, because with this masking combination, they’ll be gone in no time. First, apply a generous amount of Amazionian Acai Energizing Radiance Mask
