The Tutorial: How to Multi-Mask

By March 2, 2017

Oftentimes, there’s not a one step solution to solving your skin’s issues. For example, your T-zone can be oily, and your cheeks may be dry. So what do you do when you face the dilemma of wanting to use a mask to treat the oiler parts of your face and another to hydrate? You multi-mask! Here’s a step by step guide on how to multi-mask.

It’s actually not as crazy as it sounds. It’s a practice that Instagrammers and beauty editors alike are doing. As the name suggests, you just mix and match your masks as needed, depending on the issues in the areas you’re treating. Multi-masking involves simultaneously applying a variety of masks to different areas of the face to treat those unique concerns. Trust us: It’s a time-saver and a skin-reliever.

Plus, it’s really simple to do! Here’s how to multi-mask: First, pick what masks you want to apply by checking different areas of your skin to identify what unique treatments are needed. We’ve prepared four items for our multi-masking session to address various concerns around our eyes, cheeks, lips and T-zone.

First, the Missha Speedy Solution Brightening Eye Patch will go directly under the eyes. It’s made of cool and refreshing hydrogel, so these patches are perfect for keeping puffiness in check and hydrating the delicate under eye area. They also contain broccoli extract and hyaluronic acid, which will help to brighten. Alternatively, you can also use a wash-off mask designed to help hydrate the eye area.

The next area to treat is the T-zone. If you’re oiler in the T-zone, you can go with a clay-based mask that helps to draw out impurities and unclog the pores. But if you’re trying to get rid of those dreaded blackheads  on your nose that never seem to go away, you can combat them with the Goodal Deep Clean Pore Glacial Clay—a Kaolin clay based mask that’s formulated with fermented ingredients that will unclog pores and work to cool and tighten them.

Don’t forget your lips! Unfortunately, there aren’t many lip masks out there, but the Skinfood Pomegranate Collagen Mask is one that hits the target (it’s adorably shaped like lips). The mask contains ample amounts of pomegranate and collagen extract, and both help to intensely hydrate the skin. By infusing as much hydration into the lips as possible, it helps to soothe chapped lips and reduce any visible signs of aging.

Let’s move on to the cheeks and any other remaining areas of the face. With your fingertips, you can apply another mask all over the rest of your face. We like to use the RE:P Bio Fresh Mask With Real Vitality Herb. The mask is formulated with clay, which will pull out impurities, but unlike the Goodal mask, it’s not as intense. Instead, it contains real rose and jasmine flowers, which will work to brighten and hydrate the skin.

Remember though, your masks may have different wait times, so follow the directions for each (leaving a clay mask on for too long could end up doing more harm than good). Once you take everything off, take a look in the mirror. Hopefully, your skin is a more glow-y and looking happier!
