Multi Masking

We all have different skin types and skin conditions which makes sense to use different products for each area of our skin that we want to improve—and multi-masking accomplishes that. Multi-masking is the latest beauty trend to take over social media. Think of multi-masking as creating a custom treatment for the skin troubles unique to each part of your face. Instead of using one mask that may address only one issue, you’re putting different masks with different purposes on the areas where they’re needed most, all at the same time.

Sometimes it feels like we are in a constant battle with our skin—trying a million products to make sure it’s glowing but not oily, acne-free but not dry, hydrated but not sweaty.

A face mask is an integral part of a regular skin care regimen. Whether you’re looking to fill out fine lines, rehydrate parched skin or detox congested pores, face masks are the secret weapon that takes your results to a new level.

One mask is never enough. You have to layer your products for the best results and address all your different facial skin needs at once. This is the new Instagram skin care craze called #Multimasking

As the name suggests, it’s essentially using different types of masks that are tailored specifically for your needs. The results look like a cross between classic contouring and tribal war paint.

It is actually a common practice in Korea. For Koreans, masks are less of a rescue product to slap on misbehaving skin and more of a habitual and integrated part of skin-care maintenance. “You don’t put on a face mask because your skin is acting up; you put on a face mask because you want to keep it looking good.” If there’s one thing that the Koreans are proud of, it must be their beautiful skin. They have such flawless skin and for a good reason!

So applying just one mask all over doesn’t really cut it.

Think of multi-masking as a customized facial and the best part of doing multi-masking is the more mask you use the better the selfie to up your IG game!

These are just some of the clay masks I’m currently using; you can also mix other clay masks depending on your skin needs. Just be sure to strictly follow instructions on how to use the products. Always remember that skincare products are created differently and there are instructions on how to use them for a reason. So make sure to always follow them and when in doubt ask the brand where you got the product or feel free to send me a message on my social media channels.
