Face care, Skincare, Trends -

Multimasking is a fun technique to get a perfect complexion. You’ve probably seen some pictures on social media of girls or celebrities with coloured masks all over their faces, but… Do you know what it’s all about? Keep reading this blog to find out all about this beauty trend!

What is multimasking?

Multimasking is a beauty technique that consists of using 2 or more facial masks on different areas of the face instead of one, which is how it is normally done.

Multimasking has its origins in Korean cosmetics and what it advocates is that each area of our facial skin does not have the same needs, the skin in the T-zone is not the same as the skin on the sides of the face. That is why different facial masks are combined and applied on the face, this seems to be more personalised and effective.

Let’s see how this K-beauty (Korean beauty) trend works!

How does multimasking work?

Honestly, there are no rules to multimasking. The only thing you need to know is what type of skin you have and the needs of each part of your face.

There are countless beauty face masks on the market, so it is important to analyse your skin well to know what each area needs. To perform the multimasking technique you will have to divide your skin into groups or areas according to their conditions (dehydration, excess sebum, areas that need firming, etc).

Types of face masks

All kinds of beauty face masks are used in the multi-masking technique. Here is a list of some of them:

Purifying or cleansing masks

They reduce and control sebum production and deeply cleanse the pores. It is ideal for oily skin but whatever your skin type, this mask is perfect to apply on the T-zone (forehead, nose and chin) when you feel that your skin is dirty, full of impurities, dilated pores, shine, blackheads, pimples or acne. One of the most famous face masks of the moment of this type is the activated charcoal face mask.

Our ice effect detox face mask is perfect for use on these types of areas, although you can also use it as an antioxidant, revitalising and firming mask, and as it contains olive oil, it does not dry out like conventional mud masks.

Nourishing or moisturising face masks

If your skin ever feels tight, this is the ideal face mask! It doesn’t matter if you have oily skin, there are also oily skins with dehydration, you can use it as well! If you need hydration and softness on your face and you have dry, normal or combination skin, this is the face mask for you! This is ideal for the cheek area, upper forehead and the area around the eyes, where you have dull skin.

Brightening or revitalising masks

These types of beauty masks make the face look healthy and rested, they bring back the light to your face. These types of masks are also known as smoothing face masks. If you also want to combat uneven tone and texture you can use an exfoliating mask.

Antioxidant masks

Here we could include detox masks that open the pores and eliminate impurities and pollution. They also help to mattify the skin and refine pores.

Firming masks

This type of facial mask improves the elasticity and firmness of the skin, they are called “flash effect” masks. Your skin will look younger, it is ideal for mature skin looking to refine wrinkles or expression lines, either in the contour of the mouth or corner of the lips, between the eyebrows or cheeks.

Soothing masks

These are ideal to apply to sensitive areas such as the forehead or upper cheekbone.

Almost all of these face masks use different types of clay. Below, we explain the function of each of these pure clays:

  • White clay, eliminates impurities
  • Pink clay, for the most sensitive areas
  • Green clay, to purify the skin.
  • Black clay, anti-inflammatory, absorbent, healing, decongestant and soothing.
  • Red clay, to soothe the skin
  • Combination of white and yellow clay, refreshes and moisturises the skin.

There are some that not only contain clays, but also face masks with vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, shea butter and antioxidants. You can do your multi-masking session one to three times a week depending on your skin type. Use this technique after facial cleansing with a good face cleansing gel and before applying face serum and face moisturiser.

Benefits of multimasking

The benefits of multimasking include the following:

  • It offers personalised skin care.
  • Saves time on beauty treatments, you will be your own beautician.
  • It allows you to enjoy a home spa day or a professional treatment at home.

By the way, don’t forget to protect the most delicate areas of your face! Use eye cream and apply lip scrub and lip balm to your lips while doing this treatment.

To use multimasking you can use homemade face masks, branded face masks or a combination of both. Introduce multimasking into your beauty routine, just select the best masks for multimasking and apply them on the right areas to get good results on your skin, revitalise, purify, calm, moisturise, nourish and renew your skin with a cocktail of face masks!
