How to successfully multi-mask for great skin.
What is multi-masking?
It's actually pretty straightforward stuff! Just use several different masks at the same time to help target specific zones. For example, you could use one mask for a dry skin area, another for treating pores, etc.… whatever you feel, you need and exactly where it counts. Who says you have to apply the same mask everywhere?
Stay in control
A weekly deep pampering treatment can help keep strict control of skin issues ensuring they don't get out of hand, think of it as a weekly boot-camp for your skin!
Masks are also great for indulging yourself once or twice a week, (if you have time) and allowing for some quality ‘me’ time or mindfulness and a well-earned rest for a few precious moments.
Hive inspired ingredients
Manuka Doctor facial masks all contain New Zealand Manuka Honey, amazing for improving skin elasticity and moisturisation. Combined with Purified Bee Venom to encourage naturally occurring cell regeneration and act as a natural alternative to antibiotic therapy for acne, our formulations are also blended with powerful botanical ingredients to give you everyday skin confidence and visible results.
Multi-mask suggestions for common skin issues
For Combination Skin
Try Cleanse & Hydrate Combination
ApiClear Purifying Mask – great for deep cleansing (T-zone)
ApiNourish Rejuvenating Mask –for deep hydration and cell regeneration (other areas including neck, decolletage)
Tip – exfoliate first with the ApiNourish Polishing Facial Exfoliator or the ApiClear Purifying Facial Scrub so that the masks can sink right in.
For Oily & Clogged Skin
Try Deep Cleanse Bootcamp
ApiClear Purifying Peel – targets those blemishes & blackheads (on side/bridge of nose and chin)
ApiClear Purifying Mask - remove excess oil & impurities from the skin (on other areas)
Tips – tie hair out of the way first and avoid getting the peel onto your eyebrows. Remove any remaining traces of peel with cotton wool pad and toner. No need to exfoliate first with this combination, the Purifying Peel will do that for you, just use a facial cleanser to remove any make-up.
For Dehydrated Skin
Try Nourish and Protect
ApiNourish Rejuvenating Mask – restore skin with intense moisture and reduce the look of fine lines & wrinkles. Nurtures natural cell regeneration & renews damaged skin cells (on cheeks, forehead, neck/decolletage)
24K Gold & Manuka Honey Peel – Great for anti-aging and restoring a tired, lacklustre complexion (t-zone)
For Fine Lines/Wrinkles & Pigmentation or Dull Complexion
Try Firm & Brighten Double Attack
ApiRefine Illusionist Rapid Lift Mask – lifts and plumps skin while minimising pores & brightening (cheeks, forehead, neck)
ApiRefine 24K Gold & Manuka Honey Peel - for tired, dull looking complexions, visibly boosts radiance (nose, chin)
Tip - Why not apply a cool tea-bag or slice of cucumber on your eyes for a quick treatment for puffy and tired looking eyes? Finish by using the ApiNourish Age-Defying Eye Cream or ApiClear Revitalising Eye Gel.
