Multi Masking: The Hot New Trend Your Complexion is Craving
Mix and Mask
Mud masks, hydrating masks, rejuvenating masks, blemish-clearing masks. . . with all the types of skin treatments out there, it's easy to get overwhelmed.
It can be even more frustrating when you can't find the type of facial mask that you feel would be best for your skin. Let's face it - most people have skin that needs different remedies for different areas, and no one mask can cover all those aspects.
So what do you do when faced with the dilemma of pairing a mask facial to combination skin? The solution is easier than you think, and far more effective than settling for a less-than-perfect match!
Mix Up Your Face Masks
Multi Masking is a hot new skin trend that is sweeping Instagram, and the beauty world, as it solves the problem of all-too-generic skin masks. You're an individual, which means your skin has unique traits that will be completely different from the skin characteristics of the person next to you. There is no cookie-cutter solution where skin is involved!
The best way to give your complexion the care it needs without spending your week doing one mask after the other (because who has time for that?) is to apply different masks to different portions of your face to treat each area's needs. Simple, right? Another multi masking method consists of layering masks one on top of the other to get the benefits of both. You get two masks in one!
The Simple Art of Multi Masking
You can multi-mask to target your different problem areas by applying various masks to each part of your face. For instance, if you have an oily T-zone (forehead and nose) but your under-eye areas tend to dry out easily, apply a Hydration Cream Mask under your eyes and a Purifying Mud Mask to the rest of your face to get a full facial mask that's perfectly tailored to your complexion. Allow the mask to sit for several minutes, then rinse with warm water and follow with a moisturizer.
If you want to experiment with layering, first think of what you'd like the primary goal of your facial to be. Perhaps you want to revitalize and brighten your skin primarily, but your secondary goal is to nourish your skin with Dead Sea minerals. Your regimen should then consist of first applying an Extreme Radiance Lifting Mask, letting it soak into your skin for a few minutes, and then following it with a Natural Dead Sea Body Mud mask. Massage the masks into your skin, then allow them to sit for several minutes before rinsing. To get even better results from your mask, you can place a hot, damp towel over your face before you rinse to allow the steam to open your pores for deeper cleansing.
AHAVA Love Tip: You can also use a combination of these methods to get an even more in-depth treatment. For an all-over facial for ultimate rejuvenation, first apply a Facial Renewal Peel to your entire face. Then, target your oily areas with Purifying Mud Mask, dabbing it right over your first layer. Touch up your dry spots with a Hydration Cream Mask, such as near your jawline, under your eyes, near your mouth or anywhere else you tend to experience dryness. Let it set for 10 minutes, then rinse.
Dead Sea masks are fantastic for multi masking, as numerous Dead Sea mud benefits make it versatile and extremely effective. Its mineral-rich compounds are known for their hydrating and nourishing effects. This means that when you pair a Dead Sea mud mask with other masks, you'll get the maximum impact for your skin.
Don't let combination skin get you down. With multi masking, you're free to create your own unique facial treatment to heal all of your problem spots at once. Multi-masks help you to transform your skin into the complexion you've always dreamed of!
