MULTI-MASKING: 4 TIPS TO HIGHLIGHT YOUR FABULOUS FEATURES
Multi-masking is a skin care trend that’s blowing up on social media, where beauty aficionadas are posting selfies wearing all manner of masks painted in different stripes across their faces. And it’s an approach that makes practical sense: Since most of us don’t have “normal” skin on our faces from forehead to chin, multi-masking can be a great way to target all of your skin concerns at once, in one fell swoop. Below, we’ve mapped out a mini guide to help you plan out your mask needs:
For The T-Zone.
On the forehead, nose and chin, you may experience oiliness, congestion and blackheads to varying degrees. Look for masks that are clay or charcoal-based, like Biotherm's Skin Best Wonder Mud, to help purify and draw out oil and impurities. On the nose, where blackheads can spread like wildfire, try a pore strip to help clear out the pores.
Under The Eyes.
The delicate skin under the eyes requires special care, and most all-over facial masks may be too harsh or rich for this area. Look for retinol-based or firming and hydrating eye patches to help treat fine lines and refresh tired skin.
On The Cheeks.
Generally more dry than the rest of the face, the cheeks can benefit from hydrating and plumping masks dosed with ingredients like hyaluronic acid, plant oils and vitamin E to help bring back a dewy glow.
Word to the wise: Be sure to plan your masking ritual on a day when you’re not exfoliating, especially if you’re using clay or charcoal-based masks. Spreading out your treatments over the week can help avoid skin irritation in the long run.
