Multi-masking has become the biggest pamper must-do. But what exactly does it do for your skin?

Have you heard of that Instagram craze, multi masking? It’s exactly what it sounds like – using more than one mask at a time!

The idea is to use more than one mask at a time to treat different areas on your face with the specific mask-type that it needs. This is because most of us have combination skin types and most masks mainly tackle one skin problem (dryness, acne, excess oil, etc) at a time.

Want to know more? Read on to embark on this mask-nificent adventure!

Layer One: The T-Zone

T-zone Masks
Start off with a deep cleansing mask for your T-zone. The T-zone is usually the face’s most oily surface; the excess oil clogs up your pores and causes acne. Look for clay or tea tree oil masks that help absorb all the excess oil while giving your skin the nutrients it needs. If you’re not sure what type of mask to use for your T-zone or other areas, check out our guide to the different types of masks here.

Layer Two: Cheeks

Targeted Cheek Mud Mask
The idea is to get a mask that focuses on hydrating, plumping, and tightening your cheek area, like a sheet or gel mask. However, if your acne problem area happens to be your cheeks, use a clay or mud mask.

Layer Three: Chin



Now that your face is almost covered, focus on the area that is given the least attention – the chin. Check to see what your chin area needs are – is it oily or dry, or do you have open pores? If you find it to be dry, use a hydrating mask which will restore your moisture levels, making your skin look soft and dewy. Certain chin masks have the added bonus of slimming or firming effects. Try Etude House, Tony Moly, and Jurlique for these firming masks.

Layer Four: Eye Area

Multi-masking For Eyes
Invest in an instant oxygen foaming mask and apply it below the eye area. You can also use it to cover the areas on your face that haven’t been masked. Its an instant pick-me-up as it’s a self-activating mask that brightens and hydrates your skin, making you look fresher and brighter – everything you want for your eyes!
