It seems like every couple of months, I’m learning about a new beauty trend. While not every trend may not be “new” or deserving of your time and attention, this one is definitely one worth checking out.
Once upon a time, people wore masks to treat very straightforward skin care concerns. A person can be extremely dry looking to soak up all the moisture and hydration they can, or super oily to the point where they are looking for a treatment to absorb as much as oil as possible. Most women fall somewhere in the middle and have a combination skin is some way meaning that our faces are not entirely oily or entirely dry. For example, I get oily in my T-zone (nose and forehead mostly) and can get dry in other areas. Because most masks out there only treat one thing at a time (dryness, acne, oil) – multimasking is the answer.
Essentially, what multimasking does is treat each part of your skin according to that area’s needs allowing you to get a more effective treatment. Because no one’s issues are exactly the same, you can essentially give yourself a customized facial.
You don’t have to use a million masks at once to make this technique work. You may only need two. It’s best to figure out your problem areas and work from there.
Here are some of my favourite masks and I use each depending on my needs.
Lumiere de Vie Volcanic Exfoliating Mask
Lumière de Vie Volcanic Exfoliating Mask is formulated to detoxify, enhance skin’s glow, and dramatically improve tone and radiance. I use this mask 1-2 times a week when my feel like I need a little boost in terms of radiance and smoothness. This is a great 2-in-1 mask in that it draws impurities out of the skin and also has some texture that allows you exfoliate, getting rid of dead skin.
This is great for oily areas in that it has kaolin and bentonite clays.
Skintelligence Facial Firming Masque
The Skintelligence Facial Firming Masque promotes circulation and improved skin texture, and can help to temporarily reduce the visual effects of aging, stress and the environment. With this firming mask, you get a deep clean to remove extra oil and dirt from the pores while the natural ingredients, such as aloe leaf extract and lavender oil, help to soothe any irritated skin.
SEPHORA COLLECTION Eye Mask
The SEPHORA COLLECTION Eye Masks are one of my favourite treatments as these are an inexpensive and efficient way to treat the very delicate eye area. There are different variations in the line designed to target specific concerns, infused with a different active ingredient to replenish skin’s nutrients, provide a boost of vitamins, and achieve a brighter, more revitalized eye look. My favourite is the Green Tea – super refreshing!
