Masks have always been a big part of my beauty routine. I couldn’t even tell you the number of masks I’ve tried over the years – all I know is that they’re perfect for when my skin needs to detox or is ready for a pick me up. They’re relaxing, gratifying and help to bring the spa home for those times when I just need to chill.
Lately, I’ve been really into the multi-masking trend. What’s that? Using 2 or more different facial masks on different areas of the face to target the skin’s different needs. Sure, there are times when one mask takes care of the needs of your entire face, but there are definitely others where different parts of your face have needs that that a one-size-fits-all mask can’t hit. Combination skin, for example, doesn’t necessarily require the same care for all areas; an oily t-zone and dehydrated cheeks, for obvious reasons, require different attention.
Multi-masking helps to take care of the problem that arises when the different areas of your face require different care. By specifically targeting the needs of certain areas with masks that were designed for these, you’re giving your face exactly what it needs. The best part? You can do all of this at the same time – take a look at the face charts that Vichy created below for a few examples of how you can use multi-masking to your advantage to get the results that you need.
Lately, I’ve been using three Vichy facial masks for my multi-masking needs:
- The Vichy Quenching Mineral Mask, a gel mask that helps to restore much needed moisture to dry skin
- The Vichy Pore-Purifying Mask, which contains Kaolin and Betonite for the removal of impurities
- The Vichy Double-Peeling Mask, which exfoliates and brightens with fruit acids and vitamin C
What’s been working for me? The all-in-one skin refresher has been perfect for my skin as of late. The summer weather has been playing around with my skin a little, leaving my T-zone shinier and oilier than normal, and with my work hours I’ve definitely noticed some dullness. I’ve been using the Pore-Purifying Mask on my T-zone to help fight back against small breakouts and to tighten the skin in that area (see ya never, shine). I also apply this around the sides of the mouth – you can definitely play around with where you use the masks based on what your skin needs!
I also use the Double-Peeling Mask on my forehead to exfoliate and brighten this skin, and the Quenching Mineral Mask on my cheeks as they tend to be a little more on the dry side. Again, take a look at your skin and what it needs and use that as a guide when deciding which type of face mask to use on the different areas.
What kind of masks would you use on your face?
