A face mask has been our go-to after a long, stressful day at the office for years. But did you know there are lots of good reasons for using more than one? Multi-masking involves treating areas of the face with masks designed to deal with specific skin concerns. Confused about what should go where? Here’s the lowdown…

1. Targeting oily skin

It’s midday. You’ve reached for your desk mirror to be met with a T-zone so oily your colleagues can probably see their reflection in it. If you’re prone to excess oiliness on your forehead, nose and chin, apply a mattifying mask to these areas.

2. Targeting blackheads and clogged pores

3. Targeting unevenness

If you’ve noticed a build-up of blackheads and pesky under-the-skin spots, charcoal is your new best mate. It draws out dirt and impurities, so apply a charcoal mask to clogged pores (commonly found on the nose) for a proper deep-cleanse.
