3 Best Face Mask Combinations For Every Skin Type

Face masks are a great way to treat our skin to an at-home facial and to target specific skin concerns. But, what’s a girl to do when her T-zone is oily, her cheeks are dry, her eyes are half awake, and her chin is anything but clarified? Multi-mask, duh! Multi-masking is one of our favorite ways to customize our skin care routines and with The Body Shop’s new line of Superfood Masks, this trendy skin care technique just got that much better and convenient. Ahead, we share three of the best face mask combinations to try, inspired by Beauty Recipes from Nature, The Body Shop’s latest collection of face masks.

Combination #1: Oily T-Zone, Dull Skin Tone, Dry Chin

Oily, Acne-Prone T-Zone: If your T-zone is oily or acne-prone, reach for a mask formulated with clay or charcoal to help give that area a good cleanse. These ingredients are known to help attract and lift impurities from the skin’s surface, thereby decongesting clogged pores and getting rid of excess oils. Try: Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask

Dull Cheeks: If the skin on your cheeks appears to be dull, layer on a clarifying, polishing mask that can help to brighten the appearance of your complexion, reveal a radiant-looking tone, and kick lackluster tones to the curb. Try: Chinese Ginseng & Rice Clarifying Polishing Mask

Dry Chin: When it comes to taking care of the dry skin on your chin, look for a mask that can replenish moisture and hydration, helping to plump the appearance of your skin. Try: British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask 

Combination #2: Dehydrated T-Zone and Tired-Looking Skin

Dry T-Zone & Chin: If your T-zone and chin are feeling a little dry and dehydrated, reach for a nourishing mask that has a hydrating formula to help to restore moisture. Try: Ethiopian Honey Deep Nourishing Mask

Fatigued Complexion: Whether it’s lack of sleep or one too many glasses of wine the night before, our skin can say a lot about our energy levels. Layer on an energizing mask that can help revive tired-looking skin, leaving it looking and feeling more radiant. Try: Amazonian Acai Energizing Mask 

Combination #3: Dull T-Zone, Congested Skin on Chin and Cheeks

Dull T-Zone: Is your T-zone looking a bit dull? Brighten it up with an exfoliating, purifying mask to remove dead skin cell buildup and reveal a brighter, more youthful-looking complexion. Just don’t forget to moisturize afterwards!  Try: Chinese Ginseng & Rice Clarifying Polishing Mask

Congested Complexion: Clogged pores can strike anywhere on the face and using a charcoal mask can help to detoxify them, leaving you with a clarified, clean complexion. Try: Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask.
