Multimasking is a trend I’ve spotted over on Instagram in the past month and it really is such an easy way to get a quick DIY facial at home. It’s all about using several different treatments at the same time to get a individualised skin remedy. Whether you’ve got some serious dry patches, spots or sensitivities you can create your own line up making it easy to treat different problems all at once.
So how do you do this multimasking method? It really is quite easy! First you need to identify what skin concerns you’re currently seeing on your face and dig out (or buy!) a few different masks to help that particular problem. Below I’ve listed a few of the skin concerns I currently have, and are pretty common at this time of year, along with products that I’ve been road-testing and are worth checking out.
Skin concern: dry patches
At this time of year my skin has a little freak out and dry patches pop up around the outer portion of my face, forehead and around my eyebrows (weird!). The best treatments I find that help are an exfoliating mask followed up a hydrating one. For exfoliation I’ve been really loving the new Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque because it does help buff all that dryness away without being super intense and leaving the skin sore. I apply this during my multi-mask session followed by the Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Masque (cannot recommend enough) which I apply all over and leave overnight. Another great exfoliating mask that is a little more intense is the REN Glycolactic Radiance Mask.

Skin concern: breakouts and blackheads
Generally I find that the nose, around my mouth and chin are where I tend to find the bulk of blackhead and spots. A really deep cleansing, clay-based mask will help detoxify those areas. I have been using the Dermalogica Charcoal Rescue Mask pretty religiously the past few months because it does offer an exfoliating element when removing, that helps with any dry patches I may have, and it’s not overly harsh or difficult to buff off the skin like other clay masks can be. A more affordable option would be the Sanctuary Spa 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask and a really heavy duty once-a-week option I LOVE comes from Borghese with their Fango Active Mud for Face & Body as well.

Skin concern: sensitive spots
The area I like to keep the above masks away from is the eye area because it’s so delicate and sensitive. Instead I prefer to opt for something that is designed for the eye area. I really love the Sisley Paris Eye Contour Mask for depuffing and moisturising the area but be warned because it is quite pricey. If that’s a little out of your budget the Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energising Eye Masks are a great option or even just applying a really thick layer of your current eye cream will act as a great treatment.
