What In The World Is Multi-Masking?

May 11, 2020by Olivia - F&F

Acne-prone jaw, oily T-zone, dry cheeks… we can all agree that different areas of concern on our faces require different solutions. Slapping on a face mask – depending on its function – can either flood your skin with moisture or make it dryer than the Sahara Desert. Surely there’s a smarter way to pamper our skin? Out of all the skincare trends we've tried over the years, we were particularly excited to try this one! 

Introducing Multi-Masking! 

Multi-masking is a skincare technique that helps to simultaneously target various areas of concern on the face with different face masks. It’s a simple, yet genius idea that can save you time and money. By targeting smaller areas of the face with different masks, the end result will be tailored to your skin’s specific needs. 

This article will run you through the key areas to target on your face, what types of products to use (including some key ingredients to look out for), plus some top tips to achieve the perfect post-mask glow.

Multi-Masking Recommendations

For Dry/ Dehydrated Areas

The cheeks, the thin skin around the eyes and lips, and the outer perimeter of the face. For the dry, dull, and scaly areas – we recommend a hydrating mask packed with oils to deeply nourish and soothe the skin.  

Edible Beauty & Sleeping Beauty Purifying Mousse is a sleep mask that helps to balance oil production and brightens the skin for a radiant complexion. This luxurious pink mousse is suitable for all skin types and is a treatment designed to be worn overnight, leaving the skin feeling soft and hydrated.

The Butt Naked Hemp Clay Mask is made with Kaolin, Hemp, Aloe Vera, and Green Tea Powder – these wonderful ingredients will ensure your skin is left feeling hydrated and renewed.

Buddy Scrub Australian Pink Clay Face Mask for Sensitive and Dry Skin The absorbent properties of 100% Australian Pink Clay will help to draw out impurities from your pores, encourage cell renewal and leave your skin feeling soft and clean. Great for all skin types, but especially useful for sensitive or dry skin due to its ability to help balance complexion and reduce inflammation.


For Oily Areas

The T-zone (chin, nose, and forehead). To combat excess oil production, we recommend a mask that has clay or charcoal in it. These ingredients help to attract and bind the oil to mattify the skin. 

The Sukin Oil Balancing Facial Masque will tighten your pores and reduce shine in the areas that you need it!

The James St. Organics Lava Clay & Activated Charcoal Mask tightens pores and absorbs impurities like oil, dirt, grime, and toxins. It will leave your skin feeling super clean and smooth. 


For Hyperpigmentation

Dark spots, uneven skin tone, and signs of aging. The aim here is to lift pigment and brighten the skin, so picking a mask with Vitamin C is your best bet.  

The Madara Brightening AHA Peel Mask has a super dose of active acids to help brighten the skin – including all-important Vitamin C!

For Acne-prone Areas jawline, cheeks, and irritated areas. To banish blemishes, the key is to find a mask with anti-inflammatory properties and plenty of antioxidants to heal the skin.

The Madara Ultra Purifying Mud Mask draws out toxins, reduces outbreaks, and eliminates inflammation. Use on any blemish-prone areas to refine and purify.

The Simple As That Matcha Mask is made with Matcha Green Tea which has powerful detoxifying and healing properties. Simply mix with water and apply to blemish-prone areas to soothe and repair.

Multi-Masking Tips!

Jump in the shower before multi-masking – this will loosen the debris in your pores and allow ingredients to penetrate the skin properly.

Exfoliate your skin before applying the masks – doing so will ensure a smooth, even surface for your masks to adhere to.

Apply your masks with a flat brush that has synthetic bristles – we like using the Happy Skincare Vegan Mask Brush.

Make sure you follow the instructions on each mask – and don’t leave them on for too long.
