How to do: multimasking?
Multimasking – you may have already heard of it – if you have an Instagram account and follow a beauty blogger then you almost definitely have – but what exactly is it that is making women everywhere apply what looks like tribal paint to their face in the search for clearer, more radiant skin?
What Is Multimasking?
Simply put, it is a great way to effectively target different areas of the face that have different skincare needs by applying specific individual face masks to those separate areas.
How to Multimask
In order to multimask effectively, you need to know what certain areas of the face need to make them healthier and appear more radiant.
T-zone: Using a face mask with salicylic acid in it for your t-zone is recommended as it helps to dissolve the pore-clogging substances and tackle whiteheads and blackheads.
Eyes: Retinol is great for battling wrinkles and thickening the delicate skin around your eyes, so keep an eye out for this ingredient when choosing a beauty mask for your eye area.
Cheeks: Vitamin C is the one to watch out for when choosing a face mask for your cheeks because of its super anti-ageing properties, something which is vital for an area of the face that is the most prone to skin damage from the sun.
Face masks for different skin types
As well as keeping in mind the different skincare needs of the various areas of the face, your skin type is another important factor to consider when choosing a face mask.
Oily/acne-prone skin: Honey is brilliant for acne-prone skin. Not only does it have antiseptic and antibacterial properties, it is a natural anti-inflammatory, and will therefore help reduce the inflamed redness of acne. Turmeric and green tea should also be looked out for as they have similar benefits in addition to being great antioxidants.
Dry skin: Hydrating ingredients such as yoghurt, cucumber, and avocado can be great for livening up dry skin. Yoghurt with high levels of live cultures in particular is beneficial for rejuvenating the skin.
Sensitive skin: Face masks containing oatmeal can be surprisingly good for sensitive skin. Oats contain polysaccharides that are brilliant at preventing and combating dry, flaky skin.
