Multi-masking is one of the latest skincare trends that people are buzzing about for various reasons. The reality is that masking works to detoxify the skin, that’s all. In simple terms, multi-masking allows you to put different masks on your face to help treat different needs; whether that may be puffy eye bags, oily foreheads or dry cheeks.
Masking won’t help moisturize the skin as most brands suggest. If anything, only leave on products can help to revive the skin’s moisture levels. Besides, the naturalness of a product doesn’t necessarily imply that it’s ‘good’ for the health of your skin. Essential oils in skincare products cause allergies to the majority. It’s vital to buy a product because the ingredients listed are potent in tackling your concerns as opposed to buying a brand.
Thank heavens for Glamqueen, Sharon Mundia. She also happens to have a combination skin, always struggling with whether to cater to the oily or dry element when deciding on a mask. The idea of spot-treating is quite frankly, genius!
She starts with L’Oréal Pure Clay Purifying & Mattifying Face Mask focusing on her t-zone, nose and chin area which are the parts of the face that get the oiliest. This mask contains eucalyptus which is especially great for anti-inflammatory use. It’s great for clogged pores and it has a very refreshing, cooling effect on the skin.
The cheeks can often get dry; L’Oréal Pure Clay Glow Mask is perfect for dry cheeks. This mask contains red algae extract which is known to brighten skin so you can put it on your upper lip where you get some hyperpigmentation. The mask has a lovely scent and has finely milled apricot seeds which is ideal if you’d like to slightly exfoliate your skin when rinsing off.
