As the New Year approached, new beauty and make up techniques are on the rise. In the last years we see more often individual training programs and diets, and when it comes to beauty its also about personalisation. When choosing a face mask we think about our skin type, whether we have dry, oily, or combination skin, in order to pick the right product for us. Beauty experts discovered this season an even better way to do our beauty routine – multi-masking!
What is multi-masking?
Multi-masking is when you apply specific masks to different parts of your face at once, in order to target different skin concerns. That is because different areas of your face don’t have the same characteristics and therefore need to be treated in a different manner. While multi-masking is now a hot trend on social media with #multimasking, estheticians have been performing this skincare trick for years. Recently, I tried this technique myself and I am really happy with it – it gives a customised treatment for every different face area. I use a differed mask for my T-zone, cheeks and forehead, eye area, and lips. If you have combination skin, this technique is perfect for you as well!
How do I apply it?
- Start of with washing your face
- Cleanse your face from any dirt and remove any leftover make up
- Exfoliate (optional)
I recommend gently exfoliating your face to get rid of any dead skin, so that the ingredients of the masks will penetrate the skin more effectively.
For the T-zone we need a product that will clear out the pores as it gets more oily than the other face areas. I like putting on the Lush Fresh Face Mask Don’t Look at me. The ground rice, murumuru butter, zingy lemon, and tofu clean up and soften the skin.
For areas that tend to get dry like the cheeks, I like the Avene Soothing Moisture Mask. It provides this dehydrated area intensive soothing care.
The eye area, where the skin is very sensitive, special care is needed. To visibly reduce the dark circles, puffiness, and any traces of fatigue I use the Sephora Eye Masks. The brand offers a variety of choices for this type of masks. I mostly use the green tea mask “Relaxing and Refreshing” for a wide-awake look.
In the winter lips get dryer and need extra hydration apart from the lip balm. I recommend the Bite Beauty Smashed Agave Lip Mask. Apart from healing and softening the lips, it gives a nice colour as well!
