When you want to address a skin concern, chances are that that particular concern isn’t across all of your face. You might have blemishes on your chin, redness on your nose and areas of dryness on your cheeks. This is where the art of multi-masking comes in.
You use a range of different products in both your skincare and makeup routines, so when it comes to using a face mask, it really isn’t a case of one size fits all. You need to use a range of different masks to target different concerns and give your complexion the care it needs.
Multi-Masking your Way to a Gorgeous Complexion
It’s a super easy process, but multi-masking will give you incredible results. By understanding what your complexion needs at any given time, you will ensure you are feeding it with the exact nutrients it needs to stay healthy.
Assess your Skin’s Needs
Before you even begin buying new products or deciding what face masks you want to use, make sure you understand your skin’s needs. Over time this can change, so having a wardrobe of hydrating, purifying, brightening and lifting masks will ensure that you can switch up where you put each one.
Start with your T-Zone
Start by choosing a face mask to use down the bridge of your nose, on your chin and between your brows. These areas are referred to as the T-Zone, and are generally the oiliest areas on anyone’s complexion. Blackheads tend to form on the nose, and hormonal breakouts are concentrated on the forehead and chin.
Choose purifying masks that contain active ingredients like Charcoal, Salicylic Acid and Clay, as these tend to mattify the complexion, absorbing oil and drawing out impurities to treat blemishes. They also tend to have antiseptic properties too to help battle breakouts before they even erupt.
