Following strobing and baking, there appears to be a new beauty technique called “multi-masking” currently taking social media by storm. Multi-masking is a new trend that allows you to tailor a suitable facemask for your skin by combining different gels, scrubs, and creams on various areas of the face with the goal of achieving a flawless complexion. Indeed, why would you apply a charcoal mask specific for blackheads when they only appear on your t-zone? Our skin type differs across the face, so ultimately, using the same mask on the whole face isn’t efficient.
There are a few points to note in order to multi-mask efficiently. Firstly, make sure you use masks that require the same amount of sitting time on the face. Also, opt for masks that require the same removal methods. French beauty house Caudalie is one step ahead. Caudalie launched four masks that invite you to mix and match to create your own custom mask treatment.
T-Zone: An oily t-zone is a breeding ground for blackheads, whiteheads, and clogged pores. This area of the face requires a charcoal mask, or a product with salicylic acid. The Instant Detox Mask (US $39; AED/SAR 143) contains pink clay to clear out pores for a deep clean, while the papaya enzymes leave the skin instantly brighter. The Purifying Mask (US $39; AED/SAR 143) is made with two different white clays to absorb impurities and minimize pores.
Cheeks and lateral planes: This area of the face usually bears the brunt of sun damage, and shows the quickest signs of aging. Masks with vitamin C, peptides, and anti-aging properties are best. The Glycolic Peel (US $39; AED/SAR 143) contains papaya enzymes and glycolic acid that work together to lighten, brighten, and give you a radiant complexion.
Under Eye: The under eye area is the most sensitive and requires moisture to avoid wrinkling. The Moisturizing Mask (US $39; AED/SAR 143) was formulated with grape seed oil and hyaluronic acid, to nourish, moisturize, and prevent signs of aging.
