We multitask every day. We fold clothes while we watch TV. We take notes in a meeting (or in class) while still listening to the speaker. We talk to our passengers in the car when we drive. So why not get the benefits of multiple face masks at once?!
The latest trend in face masks is to do something called multi-masking. Multi-masking is when you use more than one mask on our face at one time. You know, multitasking for your face! This comes in handy when you have combination skin where some areas of your face are oily and others are dry. Multi-masking also works great when you only need a mask in one area (e.g. for pores or a breakout). If you have sensitive skin you might not want to put that pore minimizing mask or a clarifying mask all over your face if you only need it for one area.
So I’m going to show you a couple different ways how I multi-mask and the products I like to use together!
But first, let me first just show you this amazing shirt from Target!! In love right now. So comfortable and inexpensive! Find it here!
Mud and Clay Multi-masking:
For this multi-mask, I used 3 different of masks on my face. Two of them were mud masks and the other one was a clay mask.
I first put the MURAD Blackhead and Pore Clearing Duo Step 1 on my nose. This is where my pores are the largest and I tend to get the most blackheads. This two-step treament (step 2 not shown) that helps reduce the formation of blackheads. It uses volanic mineral clay and shikakai extract to detoxify pores. I have a trial size and plan to buy the full size when I run out, but this little tube has lasted me a very long time!
Next I used the GLAMGLOW SUPERMUD Clearing Treatment on my forehead and chin. I was experiencing some breakouts on these areas and this mask is great for breakouts! This powerful, skin-clearing mud visibly draws out dirt and congestion. I used the e.l.f. foundation brush (similar) to apply the mask to my face. I really like applying it this way and the brush is super cheap!
The Last mask I used was the GLAMGLOW POWERMUD Dualcleanse Treatment. I applied this to my cheeks with the e.l.f. brush. I like this mask because it is a gentle, deep cleansing treatment that is supposed to remove buildup of dirt, oil and makeup.
You can see in this picture how the GLAMGLOW SUPERMUD is already starting to dry. The GLAMGLOW POWERMUD doesn’t dry down because it is a mud in oil treatment.
Another option is to use different types of sheet masks at once. I used these hydrating eye pads and a cellulose fiber mask for this multi-masking night!
My first step for this multimasking treatment was to apply the eye pads. These wilmaSCHUMANN Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads are great to just wake up the under eye area if you need an extra boost. They help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and puffiness. I received mine in a birchbox and I really liked these. Another option for eye pads that may be a little easier to get if you aren’t an online shopper is the skyn ICELAND Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels and you can find them at Ulta. These only need to stay on for 10 minutes and come in a pack of 8.
I then added the Dr.Jart+ Vital Hydra Solution Deep Hydrating Sheet Mask on top of the eye pads. This cellulose sheet mask deeply hydrates, replenishes, and protects skin’s own moisture.
Sheet masks are unlike any other type of mask. Once the sheet mask is removed, rub in any of the product that is left on the face. I also like to take some of the product left behind and rub it into my neck.
These were just 2 different options of multi-masking that I like to use. There are many different combinations that you can try and experiment with! Have fun with it and enjoy your pampering time. Let these masks do the multitasking while you relax and take in the benefits!!
Talk to you again soon!
