The concept of face masks has been fairly rudimentary and linear for years. The diversification of beauty products over the years coupled with a better understanding of different needs of different areas of the skin has given birth to a new beauty trend that is all the rage right now – multi-masking. We decode this new beauty hack for you, with a detailed rundown on how to customise your own multi-mask layers:
If you are an Instagram regular, you’d probably have come across beauty bloggers and influencers using different masks on different skin regions. That’s exactly what multi-masking is about. The concept originates from the understanding that different portions of the skin have different needs. And a single mask cannot address them all. So, you apply more than one mask on your face at the same time.
Creating Your Own Multi-Mask Routine
There is no cap on the number of masks you can use and the way to layer them. You can use different masks for different skin areas. Or repeat the layers of two or three masks in different portions. It all boils down to your individual skin requirements. Be that as it may, we have put together a few multi-mask layering techniques to help you get started:
For Combination Skin
If you have a combination skin with dry cheeks and an oily T-zone or vice-versa, you can use a mattifying face mask like the L’Oreal Paris Eucalyptus Pure Clay Mask Purify & Mattify on the oily regions and a hydrating formula like the Aroma Magic Hydrating Seaweed Face Pack on the dry ones.
Multiple Skin Concerns
If you are grappling with multiple skin concerns, dry under-eye skin, acne-prone cheeks, blemishes on the nose and a tanned forehead, for instance, you need four different masks for it. Apply a layer of Jovees Anti Tanpack Clarifying Face Pack on the forehead, Biotique Bio Myristica Spot Correcting Anti-Acne Face Pack on the cheeks, Swiss Image Absolute Hydration Mask on the under-eye region and Anatomicals Anti Blemish Face Mask on the nose to address all your skin concerns at once.
Alter Your Routine
Addressing the changing requirements of the skin is the prime objective here and that’s why you should change the masks as per the changing requirements on your skin. For example, if are prone to acne breakout around your menstrual cycle, you can throw in a quick fix formula like the Dermal Shop Hyaluronic Acid Collagen Essence Silver Foil Face Mask to rein in the hormonal breakouts. Or add a lip mask like the MaskerAide Tell Me ‘Pout It Hydrating Lip Mask during the winter to prevent cracked and chapped lips.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to multi-masking. Just understand what your skin needs and you’ll be able to nail this beauty trend like a pro.
