You may have heard of multi-masking before, putting multiple masks on the face simultaneously in different areas to target specific skin concerns. This method works great for combination skin types because you can address the dry and oily parts of your skin at the same time. However, that version of multi-masking isn't what I'm referring to, I'm talking about applying multiple masks back to back. Winter weather and the frequent rise and dramatic drops in temperatures we have been having lately wreak havoc on your skin, combined with day to day stress, hormones, and the fact that every second of the day your skin is aging, multiple conditions start to appear on the face as a whole. This new skincare trend helps to address all of your skin issues in the same day and help you achieve more radiant, fresh, and youthful skin. Set aside a weekend morning or a chunk of your evening before bed and your skin will become so glowy and refreshed that not even winter can bring you back to a dark and flaky place. Cleanse your skin first and let's get started!
Brighten: Exfoliating your dead flaking skin is key to achieving a healthier looking complexion. If you have a lot of dry patches, simply moisturizing them will only be a temporary fix, you need to rid yourself of the problem rather than covering it up. Shed that layer of dead skin cells with an exfoliating mask, I love the GlamGlow Flashmud Brightening Treatment. This mask works wonders battling dull skin and leaving you with a brighter complexion, but we still have more skin concerns to address.
Tighten: Aging skin is a huge concern and it's something you want to tackle head on as early as possible. They say after 25 your skin begins to lose elasticity at a more rapid rate than in your teens and early 20's. Yikes. I love masks that are made to plump up your skin, fill fine lines, and help boost collagen. Also tightening your pores is a must to help avoid breakouts and have a more youthful appearance overall. A great option for tightening and firming is the GlamGlow Gravitymud Firming Treatment, it's also super fun to apply and peel off when dry!
Hydrate: Lastly, nothing makes skin appear old and tired more than dryness. After you've exfoliated and firmed your skin, you'll need to replenish the moisture and leave your face looking quenched and phenomenal. A convenient option for restoring hydration is a sheet mask. One of my favorites is the Dr. Jart+ Water Replenishment Cotton Sheet Mask. You can even refrigerate these masks for a cooling an refreshing experience, and the cold temperature also helps boost absorption into your skin.
Brightening, tightening, and hydrating are only a few options you can target with multi-masking. Throw in a detoxifying or clearing mask, under eye masks, anything you feel your skin needs, and by the end of your regimen you will have a younger and healthier look.
