Multi-Masking is a newer trend that has emerged with which I am totally on board. It is a customized facial that you can do right at home and specially spot-treat your face. Essentially, you place a different mask on a different part of your face according to its specific needs at the time. Whether you are treating acne, dryness, oiliness, or are just looking for a calming mask for certain areas of your face, multi-masking will allow you to treat the areas with specificity.
A best-seller on Amazon.com, this Dead Sea Mud Mask does everything (except hydrate, you’ll need a separate mask for that). The mud mask is great at combating oil and helping fight breakouts, but I find that it also has a soothing effect because of the Dead Sea mud. It’s reasonably priced so give it a try! The only drawback is that it is a bit messy to rinse off. In addition to just plain water, I use facial towelettes to make sure that I get the mask completely off my face. Otherwise, this is definitely one of my favorites to use!
I use this clay mask somewhat sparingly because it’s a bit drying, but it’s great at combating acne. Sometimes, I tend to have breakouts around my chin area so I’ll use this clay mask to treat only my chin. Guess what? It works! And I don’t have to dry my whole face out doing it. This Deep Cleansing Mask by Kiss My Face is perfect for spot treating small spots of acne that annoyingly pop up on occasion.
This is the most soothing mask of them all because it is a hydrating mask. When I’m not multi-masking, I use this mask overnight and my skin is soft and supple when I wash it off in the morning. It’s fabulous! However, when I’m multi-masking, I like to use some on my cheeks because they tend to get a bit dry. I leave it on about 30 minutes or as long as I leave on the other masks and my cheeks become hydrated while other parts of my face are being treated with the other various masks.
