We have just gingerly stepped foot into the New Year and we have already found a beauty trend that we are totally behind. What is better than one face mask? Three! Not all the areas on your face behave similarly. Some may be dry, some oily and others problem prone. One face mask does not treat all these different issues.
When different areas of your skin have different requirements, you cannot stick to just the one face mask. You have to treat the different areas with a tailor-made face mask. This is where multimasking steps in.
What is multimasking?
Multimaksing is applying different masks to different parts of your face to target specific requirements. For example, T-zones tend to be oilier than the cheeks, and the under eye area is very delicate, so each of these require specific treatments.
How to go about it…
Yes, it involves investing in two or more face masks for the different areas on your face. But once you see the difference it makes to your skin, you will feel it’s worth it!
Multimask right after you take a shower. The hot steam will have opened up the pores and cleaned your skin, making it ready to absorb the goodness from the masks.
The T-zone is oilier and tends to be prone to blackheads and spots, so opt for a mask with salicylic acid or clay that will clear and mattify this zone.
The cheeks and the region around the mouth are dry, so opt for hydrating and moisturising masks infused with hyaluronic acid or collagen boosting, anti-ageing ingredients.
The area under your eye is very delicate, so you will need masks or patches that are specially formulated for this area. Retinol is a great ingredient for the under eye are as it helps reduce fine lines and renews cell turnover.
After you have left the masks on for about 15 minutes and taken selfies to post on Instagram, rinse it off completely and massage your face. This helps increase blood circulation and tightens the skin. Finish with a layer of moisturiser.
