Mask Mixology.


Masks are one of my favourite skincare products for tackling any problem areas I may have, whether that be dryness or blemishes, there's a mask for everything! But who says we have to stick to just one? Lately I've been mixing and matching my masks to give my skin all the help it needs. My favourite way to do this is to apply a moisturising mask to dryer areas and a more clarifying clay mask to my pores or blemishes, speeding the processes up and getting more than one overall benefit. This may make you look even crazier than if you were to have just one mask on your face, but it's worth it right?...


I thought I would mention a few masks I love, along with how I like to apply them, so you can get a better grasp of this mixology business. The Super Facialist Rose Hydrate Mask and the Origins Drink Up Intense are my go-tos when it comes to nourishing and hydrating the skin. The only difference is the Origins one you can leave on overnight and the former you only leave on for 10 minutes or so. I'm not the biggest rose scent fan, however Super Facialist mask isn't too bad and the formula definitely makes up for that. It's a thick white cream which I apply to any dryer areas of my skin, this tends to be my forehead and around my mouth and chin, and the vitamin E and marshmallow extract really help to plump and replenish the skin, leaving it healthier and more radiant. With this one I will pop on a charcoal mask such as the Origins Clear Improvement Mask simultaneously down my t zone to help minimise pores. As both these masks are to be left on for 5-10 minutes they're perfect to use together.

The Origins Drink Up Intense Mask is an overnight mask to intensely hydrate the skin and improve nourishment by the morning. With this one, I love to apply the LUSH Mask of Magnanimity beforehand, again to my t zone and on any blemishes, rinse it and go in with a layer of the Origins mask. This ensures that if you have dry skin, like me, using a clarifying mask won't dry your skin out as you're adding a layer of moisture on afterwards. On the skin, the LUSH mask feels a lot more clarifying, thanks to the mint, than the Origins Charcoal Mask, so it one is great to tackle any pesky spots.

This is definitely a technique I love doing and my skin loves it too, like I said, why settle for just one? Let me know if you've tried this and your favourite mask combinations down below as I would love to get your recommendations!
