The fact of the matter is, when it comes to your skin, different parts of your face may have different needs. For example, if you have dry skin, your forehead or chin could still get oily from time to time. Or, if you have oily skin, you could still experience dryness on your cheeks at one moment or another. So, when it comes to choosing a face mask, don’t limit yourself to using just one. It’s time to learn all about multi-masking, a skin care trend that involves applying different face masks to different areas of your face at the same time. Keep reading to find out how to try this super-fun skin care trend for yourself.
WHAT IS MULTI-MASKING?
Multi-masking entails using more than one face mask at the same time. The idea behind multi-masking is that instead of applying one face mask over the entirety of your face, you apply multiple face masks depending on what skin care concerns you may be dealing with in different areas. Look for multiple face masks that address each of your individual skin care concerns and apply them to those areas at the same time.
On oily areas, you may want to consider using a mattifying face mask, while on dry areas, you may want to consider using a hydrating face mask. Of course, those aren’t your only options. As long as you have a few face masks on hand, you can create a myriad of multi-masking combinations. This skin care trend sounds pretty cool, doesn’t it? We think so! Of course, you’ve got to find the right face masks for your skin. We have five recommendations for you, coming up next.
HOW DO YOU MULTI-MASK?
Now that you know what’s involved in multi-masking, it’s time to get to work! Choose from the following five face masks, all of which are formulated with three types of clay (kaolin, montmorillonite, and Moroccan lava), then go ahead and start applying your masks to try this trend.
L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Face Mask: Day after day, impurities, dirt, makeup, and excess oils can build up on the surface of your skin, leaving your complexion looking overly oily. This face mask, which is enhanced with eucalyptus leaf extract, can help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils and help reduce the appearance of excess shine. Immediately, skin looks less shiny.
L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Face Mask: Over time, harsh environmental facts, such as pollution and debris, can damage skin, leaving your complexion looking dull and tired. This face mask, which is enhanced with charcoal, can help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and pollution and reduce the appearance of dull skin. Immediately, skin looks brighter.
L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refining Face Mask: Day after day, dead skin cells can accumulate on the surface of your skin, leaving your skin feeling rough. This face mask, which is enhanced with red algae, can help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils, and exfoliate dead skin cells from skin’s surface. Immediately, skin texture appears refined and skin looks smoother.
L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clear & Comfort Face Mask: Over time, harsh cleansing can be drying and sensitizing, leaving skin feeling uncomfortable. As a result, skin needs cleansing that is effective yet gentle. This face mask, which is enhanced with seaweed, can help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils and gently cleansed stressed areas.
L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clarify & Smooth Face Mask: Daily wear and tear—makeup and improper care—can leave skin uneven with roughness and imperfections. Often times a facial cleanser isn’t enough to solve this problem. This face mask—which is formulated with yuzu lemon—helps to draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and pollution, shed rough, dead skin cells, clarify tone, and improve skin texture. Immediately after use, skin is left with a clean glow.
To multi-mask with the above face masks, apply your face masks of choice to different areas of your face, leave them on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse off with lukewarm water and pat dry. Use these face masks 2-3 times a week for best results. Want to turn multi-masking into more of an event? Why not try multi-masking with your BFFs on your next girls’ night in?
