Face masks perfectly supplement our everyday skincare routines and can help to combat particular, unexpected issues and flare ups.
What’s better, face masks can be used in combination on particular areas to target specific issues and calm the skin for an even, clear complexion. Known as ‘multi-masking’, this technique involves applying multiple face masks at once to combat various skin issues at one time.
As most of us do not have normal skin all over our faces, it makes sense to treat each area with targeted treatments.
To help you make sense of the trend, we have created multi-masking maths and devised three different masking combinations for three different complexions. Whether you have traditional combination skin which is both oily and dry, sensitive break-out prone skin or a dry and dull visage, we have the perfect mask combination for you.
Oily + dry combination skin
Those with combination skin often find they are oily in some areas, most commonly on the forehead, down the nose and on the chin, and dry on other areas such as their cheeks. Using a purifying, clay-based mask on the oily areas and a hydrating mask on dry patches can help to balance the skin and restore even tone and texture.
- On your T-Zone – Apply a detoxifying mask such as the Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask on any oily areas. Apply a generous layer on your forehead, down your nose and on your chin and leave other areas bare.
- On dry areas – Bobbi Brown Skin Nourish Mask. Follow up your clay mask with a hydrating formula on your cheeks and any other slightly dry patches of skin. The is enriched with emollients and botanical oils to soothe the skin and restore moisture.
- Underneath the eyes – Eye masks such as the Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Hydra-Gel Eye Masks can help to hydrate the delicate skin underneath your eyes to perk up the overall appearance of your complexion. Ultra-hydrating and calming, they work to revlitalise the skin and brighten your eyes for a fresh, wide-awake finish.about:newtab
