Mask Mapping: how to apply multiple face masks


Mask mapping involves using multiple masks on different areas of your face, rather than just one all over. Since most of us tend to have combination skin - think an oily T-zone, but dry cheeks - using multiple masks allow you to give your skin everything it's thirsty for in one pamper session. Genius!  


Step 1: Identify what your skin needs. Which areas are dry, oily or prone to breakouts? Do certain areas need brightening and tightening? 

Step 2: Apply your first mask, using our handy spatula, to the areas that need it most. Then do the same with the additional masks you choose. Take a look at our guide below for advice on which mask to apply where.


Skin type: Oily or blemish-prone

Try: Clear Skin Blemish-fighting Mask

Why: Willow bark, green clay and ginger extracts help unclog pores for a clearer, shine-free complexion

Where: Layer onto areas where blemishes crop up - think T-zone and chin




deep hydration



Skin type: Dry, sensitive or irritated

Try: Deep Hydration Soothing Cooling Mask

Why: Thanks to wild Australian superberries and resurrection flower extract, skin feels super soft and soothed. It's also great for calming sore or sunburned skin.

Where: Apply to dehydrated areas, such as your forehead and cheeks.

Face lift

Skin type:
 Dull or ageing

Try: Face Lift Brightening Tightening Mask

Why: Electric daisy extract helps tighten skin and minimise fine lines, while turmeric and clay promote a brighter, more youthful-looking complexion.

Where: Target areas that are prone to ageing - think your neck, forehead and eye area.



Our range of freshly made, 100% natural masks, each of which target a particular skin concern, are perfect for mask mapping! Whether your skin craves moisture, longs to be brighter, or is in need of a blemish-banishing remedy, we've got you covered.

Should You Apply Face Mask Before Or After Shower?

Next time you go to apply a face mask, pop for a shower before. The steam and water work wonders to open up your pores, making a shower the perfect preparation and ensuring a deep cleanse.


TOP TIPS for face masks:

- Store masks in the fridge to help them last longer. They'll also feel refreshingly cool on your skin

- Apply sparingly, gradually build up layers until you have an even coverage

- Use once a week for the most effective results

- Finish with a spritz of Vitamin Toner to lock in all the benefits of the mask
