Face mask treatments were one of the biggest skincare trends in 2019, and by now it’s clear they’re well and truly here to stay. Anyone who has ever used a face mask - whether its a clay face mask, sheet mask, or face peel mask - knows that masking is the perfect way to sit back, relax, and treat your skin to some much-needed pampering.
In 2020, just when you thought they couldn’t get any better, face masks have levelled up. Say hello to multi-masking, also known as the latest must-do step in your skincare routine. With multi-masking, you can tackle multiple skin concerns at the same time - how’s that for efficiency?
Read on to discover which type of face masks can help you on your journey toward clear, healthy skin, and learn how to multi-mask in three easy steps.
Step 1: Prep Your Skin
To get the best results from your face mask skincare routine, you want to start with the cleanest possible canvas. That way, the ingredients in your mask will absorb into the deeper layers of your skin, where they can work their magic. To prep your skin, double cleanse by using a natural micellar water followed by your favourite gel, cream, or foam facial cleanser. Rinse thoroughly with warm water to soften your pores.
Top Tip: For maximum skin radiance, you should exfoliate before applying a face mask. Our gentle Polish-ME Face Exfoliator will do the trick and leave you with smooth, squeaky-clean skin that’s ready for a mask!
Step 2: Apply Masks That Match Your Skin Type
There are two ways to multi-mask. You can either layer masks one after the other and let them work their magic, or apply different masks to specific areas of your face at the same time. Either way, you’ll be giving your skin exactly what it’s craving and treating yourself to some serious self-care in the process!

Give dry skin a heavy hit of hydration with our SUPERFOOD SALAD Hydrating Gel Mask. This hydrating face mask is packed with our signature WildBerry Harvest™ berry blend, which locks in moisture, and Moringa to stimulate collagen production and boost elasticity. It also contains Maqui Berry, an antioxidant powerhouse that helps to calm inflammation and combat premature ageing.
Apply a thin layer of this natural moisturising face mask over your entire face, or focus on the areas where your skin is dry and delicate, like the apples of your cheeks. And don’t forget your neck! The skin on your neck is super thin, so it can get parched very easily.
Oily Or Congested Skin
To balance oily, congested, or acne-prone skin, go for a purifying and mattifying clay mask like our SUPERFOOD SALAD Green Clay Detox Mask. If you’re only oily on your t-zone, slather it on your nose, chin, and forehead as a spot treatment. Otherwise, you can apply it all over your face.
This clay face mask hardens and dries on the skin, and draws out excess oil and impurities for a clearer complexion. It contains Spinach to smooth and plump the skin and Green Tea to control oil production and tighten pores, making it one of the best natural face masks for acne and blackheads. It’s also loaded with Vitamin K-rich Kale to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and WildBerry Harvest™ to infuse the skin with hydration.
Dull Or Aging Skin
If your skin is looking a little lacklustre, brighten it up with the help of our SUPERFOOD SALAD Exfoliating Cream Mask. This mask glides smoothly onto the skin, and gently sloughs off dead skin cells to reveal fresh, radiant skin underneath. If you’re multi-masking, try using it on your forehead and cheeks to remove impurities and leave your skin silky and glowing.
This exfoliating face mask is also full of skin-loving superfoods like Kale to combat fine lines and wrinkles and Sweet Orange Oil to promote collagen production. It also contains Green Tea, which is packed with antioxidants to help heal blemishes and scars.
If you’re dealing with a few skincare concerns, apply a superfood salad to your skin by combining all of the above! Together, these masks will help to treat dryness, dullness, premature ageing, and breakouts, and leave you with a clearer and healthier-looking complexion.
Remember to only apply masks for as long as the packet says. If you’re applying a few at once, read each mask’s instructions and map out a plan so you can remove them at the same time. As a guide, you should always apply the masks that need to stay on the longest first, and the shortest last.
Step 3: Wash Off The Mask
Once you’ve masked - and taken a few sneaky selfies - rinse off any residue with lukewarm water. Remove your mask using clean hands, or a cotton pad or face towel to get a little extra exfoliation.
Then, apply your regular toner and serum, and spend a few minutes massaging your moisturiser or face oil into your skin. This will boost blood flow to your skin, leaving you with that glow we all know and love!
