While some trends appear extreme or far-fetched, others actually make a lot of sense, like multimasking. Here’s an overview of this effective strategy for a peaches-and-cream complexion, and some allies to help you achieve it.
WHAT IS MULTIMASKING?
The term "multimasking" pretty much says it all, since this technique consists of applying several masks to your face at the same time. There’s a wide variety of masks available that target different issues, but instead of applying a single mask to your entire face in the traditional way, this technique targets each area according to your specific needs by choosing the right care product. When multimasking, you apply all the selected masks at the same time.
For example: apply a purifying clay or charcoal mask to the nose and forehead, a moisturizing mask to the neck, and smoothing or anti-dark circle patches under the eyes.
THE ADVANTAGES OF MULTIMASKING
There are several reasons to try this trend that’s been hugely popular on Instagram for some time now:
- All skin is different and requires very specific care: multimasking lets you customize the care you apply to your skin.
- Multimasking allows you to save time, since you apply your masks simultaneously, rather than one after the other.
- This technique enables you to optimize the condition of your skin, since you avoid exposing it to care it doesn’t necessarily need. (For example, you avoid applying a purifying mask to a more sensitive skin area on your face that doesn’t require this type of care.)
