There’s a new trend in the beauty world called “multi-masking”. Most of us are busy and always trying to perfect the art of multi tasking, right? Well, are beauty routine is no exception. Multi-masking is actually one of those concepts where you wonder why you didn’t think of it sooner? Multi-masking is where you treat different issues of your skin with different masks depending on what that area of your skin needs. No-brainer right?! It’s truly a healthier way to mask because 99% of us have multiple skin issues. As we age it is very common to be dry in some areas and oilier in others. Eventually the oily places will probably catch up to the dry places but in the meantime, multi-masking is the answer.
Well, maybe I’m slow to the party but I’ve been doing this for only a few weeks and it’s changed the way I mask! I’m a big fan of clay masks like THIS one. The problem is, clay can be drying and my cheeks and around my eyes certainly don’t need any drying but my chin and nose do. This is where hydrating and anti-aging masks can come into play.
There are no rules in multi masking. The only thing you need to know is what each section of your skin needs. Use as many masks as you want or only use two! It’s whatever works best for your unique skin issues. I have included a list of homemade masks as well as masks I’ve tried and like from skin care companies.

So there you have it, a rather straight forward post that really makes sense. I think this technique helps us pay close attention to the needs of our skin. This is so important because we are our skins only advocate. Feed your skin just as you would feed your body. The skin you’re in is the only skin you’re gonna get so it’s truly worth while to nourish what you got!
Well this is indeed, interesting! I love your pictures! So playful and fun =) I personally have very normal, balanced skin so I don’t think I would do this except for fun,but it sure looks like an interesting idea! I add a humectant to bentonite or Kaolin clay masks, such as raw honey or glycerine, just about a 1/2 tsp and I don’t have any issues with dryness. The mask still dries but it doesn’t dry hard and cracked, which I think is another great trick, don’t let it dry to that point! When I wash it off, I get very smooth, plump skin. I just use Apple Cider Vinegar, bentonite, and honey!
Ashlynn-Thanks! I haven’t used honey with my clay so I will try that! I’ve used aloe and still get way too dry but I always end up leaving the mask on for too long-I think that’s the key!
I would love if you could post a recipe for probiotic face products!
Raya-I actually have that on my future posts list! Stay tuned! Keep the suggestions coming!
