Beauty Expert’s Guide to Multi-Masking

Multi-masking seems to be an ever-growing trend in the beauty world, with beauty addicts across the globe praising the use of numerous masks on different parts of the face to achieve better skin. Interesting as it looks on social media, multi-masking can be both useful and effective, especially as very few of us have consistently ‘normal’ skin all over our face. It’s often the case that our T-zone tends to be oilier and more prone to breakouts, whereas our cheeks can lack hydration, and as result, need a much-needed collagen boost! We then of course need to pay attention to our eyes. Not only does this area have the most delicate skin, it’s often the area that shows the first signs of ageing. So, rather than opting for the weekly indulgent mask, you may want to incorporate multiple products that target the many different skin concerns.

The T-Zone

As Pharmacist Hira explains, the t-zone is often the area that contains the highest amount of oil glands, so it’s really important to keep this area fresh, clean and mattified. We recommend opting for a purifying mask to help cleanse and purify the pores, revealing a shiny-free surface to your skin.

Try: Ren Calrimatte Invisible Pores Detox Mask! Formulated for combination, oily or problem-prone skin, this detoxifying clay mask will dramatically reduce the appearance of enlarged pores by drawing out impurities and eliminating blackheads.

The Eyes

As the skin area around your eye has the thinnest layer of skin on your entire body, it’s often the most sensitive and delicate area of the face.  Retinol is the key ingredient to look out for when smoothing and hydrating this area, as retinol not only helps to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, it also helps to thicken the delicate skin around the eyes.

Try: Ole Henriksen Ultimate Lift Eye Gel! Containing an unique blend of peptides and botanicals, this refreshing eye gel soothes and de-puffs eyes in an instant. Once applied, the gel provides an instant tightening effects and a reduction in crow’s feet, while the cucumber and hyaluronic acid provides long-lasting moisture.

The Cheeks

When it comes to cheeks, it’s usually radiant skin that we’re all lusting after. Many of us also suffer from dark and dry spots around this area, so it’s good to use a mask which has been formulated to energise the cheek area.  As dehydration can occur at any time, it’s really important to look for something super hydrating.

Try: NUXE Crème Fraiche Mask. Containing a whole host of wonderful ingredients, this mask is the ultimate emergency treatment for your skin. Leaving your skin noticeably smoother and clearer, it’s the perfect TLC for your skin.
