Treating your skin to a face mask is nice, but do you know what’s twice (or more) as nice? Pampering your complexion with multiple masks. Multi-masking is the much-loved technique of applying different face masks on different parts of your face, to address a variety of skin concerns, at the same time. For example, you may find that your T-zone (which includes your forehead, nose, and chin) is oilier than the rest of your face, while the skin around your nose might be drier than other areas, and your cheeks might look rough or dull. Since you now know why it could be a good idea to multi-mask, here are the seven best times to actually do it. There’s one for every day of the week!
Multi-Masking Moment #1: Monday Meltdown
The more delightful your weekend, the harder it is to return to school or work. After a long first day back, it’s no surprise if you’re stressed about the week ahead. So, indulge in a multi-masking session to offer your skin something almost as enjoyable as the weekend.
Multi-Masking Moment #2: Tuesday Night TV and Masks
While you’re kicking back with your feet up and watching your favorite Tuesday television show, smooth on a few face masks. Your guilty pleasure TV won’t seem quite so guilty when you make the most of that time—by masking.
Multi-Masking Moment #3: Wednesday Night Pick-Me-Up
You’ve made it to the middle of the work week, but you might need a little something to help you survive until the weekend. Give your skin a mid-week pick-me-up by applying a range of face masks.
Multi-Masking Moment #4: Thursday Wind Down
When Friday feels so close, yet so far, it’s time to multi-mask. You’ve almost finished out your week successfully, but maybe your skin hasn’t fared quite as well. Give your skin some extra TLC by multi-masking.
Multi-Masking Moment #5: Friday Night Prep
Getting ready for a night out already requires a beautifying routine, and that isn’t complete without the use of a couple of masks. Don’t break out your heat tools or makeup bag just yet. Before starting on your Friday night transformation, coat your complexion in your favorite masks.
Multi-Masking Moment #6: Saturday Slumber Party
Slumber parties aren’t just a thing of the past. Invite your BFFs over for a night in, and while you’re sharing gossip and sipping on frozen cocktails, spread face masks onto your skin.
Multi-Masking Moment #7: Sunday Night Detox
The “Sunday Scaries” are a very real thing, and they’ll be that much worse if your skin isn’t ready to take on a new week. While you’re prepping meals and packing your bag, multi-mask to remove impurities, dirt, and pollution from the surface of your skin. Your mini skin care detox will have you ready to take on the week in no time.
