Multi-tasking with multi-masking! Now try saying that fast 5 times.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with multi-masking it is when you use 2-3 (maybe even 4) different type of face masks to target specific concerns you have with your skin. Now I don’t do this every time I apply a face mask but I do do it at least once a week or when I feel like my skin needs some extra TLC.
Below is a helpful guide for your skin type and what masks are great to target that oily forehead, dark under eyes, blah skin or dry patchy cheeks oh and can’t forget those pores!
Women with normal skin have a lot more options when it comes to masks. To enhance your complexion use an exfoliating mask for any areas that may be congested (t-zone) and then add a brightening/ radiance boosting mask to your cheeks. You can also add under eye patches to help de-puff tired eyes.
Not only does your skin need a boost of moisture but you also want to target the dull complexion and signs of premature aging that dry skin can cause. Add a hydrating or radiance mask to your nose, cheeks and chin. For your forehead and perimeter of your face use an anti-aging mask and a hydrating gel/ sheet mask for under your eyes.
You want something that detoxifies and purifies your clogged pores. A peel off mask on your nose can help clear out blackheads and excess oil. A charcoal/ mud mask can be used on the rest of your face or only concentrating on areas where you have are having a breakout. Let’s not forget about the eyes and use something that is toning and revitalizing.
You got the best er or worst of both worlds and multimasking will have you covered! Along your t-zone try a charcoal mask to draw out any impurities. For the rest of your face use a hydrating mask and firming eye mask.
Now, remember this is only a guide to give you an idea of what you may want to target for your specific areas of concern. I have added a video by Beauty Guru and YouTube sensation Nicole Guerriero (she’s definitely one of my fave YouTubers!) who will go into more detail of multimasking.
Now get masking!
P.S. If you are trying a new mask remember to spot test a patch on your skin first.
