Face masks are awesome: You slather one on, relax for 20 minutes (the perfect amount of time to watch an ep of your favorite comedy), and then wash it all off to reveal a looks-like-I-just-got-back-from-the-spa glow. Ahhh. But sometimes, a single face mask isn’t enough to suit all of your needs. And that’s especially true if you have combination skin. When you’re oily in some areas and dry in others, one product may not fit all your skin’s needs. Enter multi-masking, the art of using multiple masks at once to address various complexion concerns. Here’s what you need to know about this uber-popular trend and how to try it to help care for combination skin.
Real talk: Combination skin is tricky. Most combination skin types experience oiliness in the T-zone area (the central part of your face, including your forehead, nose, and chin). That’s because your skin’s oil-producing glands are more highly concentrated there. This can make your T-zone look shinier than the rest of your face. Fun. But that’s not all! If you have combination skin, you may notice that your nose and chin appear rough or dull, thanks to a buildup of dead skin cells on those parts of your face. And on top of that, your cheeks and the skin around your eyes could be drier than the rest of your face if you have combination skin, since these areas generally have less oil-producing glands than your T-zone. Which leads us to…
Multi-masking is exactly what it sounds like: The technique entails applying different face masks to different areas of your face—at the same time—to target specific skin concerns. Hence why it’s worth trying if you’re someone with combination skin. For example, you may want to apply a mattifying clay face mask to the oilier parts of your face, a hydrating clay face mask to the drier areas, and a refining clay face mask to any rough parts. This makes a whole lot more sense than applying one face mask all over if you’ve got combination skin, right? And regardless of your skin type, you should pay attention to your neck and chest, too. Since the skin on this part of your body is prone to wrinkles, consider using a hydrating clay face mask here as part of your multi-masking routine.
Want to give multi-masking a go? It’s easier than ever! Mix and match the following face masks according to your needs:
Skin concerns: rough skin and clogged pores
How it works: Formulated with pure clays and volcanic rock to help exfoliate dead skin on skin’s surface, lift away dirt, and oil from clogged pores. The end result is a polished, smooth looking complexion. After you’re done, your skin texture can appear refined and pores look minimized in their appearance. Just be sure to follow up with moisturizer as exfoliation can be drying.
Apply it to: any areas of skin that you experience a buildup of dead skin cells
Skin concern: dull, tired skin
How it works: The formula with pure clays and charcoal acts like a magnet to unclog pores, drawing out impurities like dirt, oil, and pollution from skin’s surface. The creamy, non-drying formula can help leave your skin looking noticeably brighter and feeling clean and velvety-smooth. Your complexion can also look more even.
Apply it to: any areas of skin where you are bothered by clogged pores
Skin concern: clogged pores
How it works: The formula with pure clays and eucalyptus helps to remove dirt and oil and unclog pores. The mask helps to mattify the appearance of the skin, making it look less shiny, too. It also reduces excess oil on skin’s surface and makes pores look tightened and less visible—all without over-drying.
Apply it to: any areas of skin where you experience excess oil and shine
For each face mask, apply an even layer onto dry skin, leave on for 10 to 15 minutes, then rinse off with water. (Just remember: Avoid your eye and lip area—they’re delicate!) For best results, use three times a week. Now that’s how you treat combination skin right.
