Hi friends! Have you been following the latest beauty hashtag on Instagram? #Multimasking has been the current trend circulating social media and I am here for it! A few weeks ago I was browsing through my YouTube subscriptions and I saw Nicole Guerriero post a video about multi-masking so of course I did my research and prepared this post for you all 🙂
Generally, masking is typically a luxury practiced on the weekend or those lazy days where we are in our comfy clothes and indulging in unhealthy snacks and a good movie (or maybe that’s just me). But we mask for a deep clean at least a few times a month, right? We also mask to aim towards our problem areas like acne, redness, irritation, etc. Here is the ultimate quirk of mulit-masking: you can treat multiple skin issues at one time as oppose to treating them one at a time. Sounds pretty simple and easy, right? Multi-masking allows you to tackle your specific needs on your skin by using correct products accordingly. Common combinations of multi-masking include fighting acne, absorbing/unclogging dirt and oil, hydrating, and moisturizing the skin.
Facial clay masks are essential in my skincare routine because of my combination/oily skin, so I tend to purchase masks that are great for combating my T-zone and unclogging my pores. This time I used Freemans Feeling Beautiful Facial Masks in the Avocado & Oatmeal Mask for my T-zone and part of my cheeks and the Dead Sea Minerals Anti-Stress Mask for the other part of my cheeks and the sides/top of my face.
Here are some quick tips about multi-masking:
- Are you a beginner? Start off by using 2 masks at a time to decrease irritation. Overtime you can move up to 3 masks at a time, but proceed with caution. Try not to exceed over 3 masks at a time.
- Keep in mind that facial masks are intensive treatments. Make sure you are aware of your problem areas on your skin (ex. oily skin, breakouts, irritation) and that you are appropriately treating them.
- Do not overdo it! Masking is not an everyday necessity. Treat yourself to masking 1-3 times a month.
- Make sure multi-masking is for you. Do you have multiple problem areas on your skin? Dealing with eczema? Do you have overly sensitive skin? Weigh the pros and cons of multi-masking for you and create your decision.
