Here are our tips & tricks...

Article heading image for 'Multi-Masking' Is The Next Beauty Trend But Is It Actually Functional? An Investigation!

It looks like it's about time we all upped the ante on our skincare regimes and honestly, how did we all not realise this hack sooner?!

Anyone who knows the term, multi-masking will know what's up, but what fools like us, who have just been slathering the same product all over our faces for the last 20 odd years, haven’t realised, is that you can actually strategically use different beauty masks for different sections of your face depending on what your skin actually needs!

Mind. Blown. 

Nutritionist Madeline Calfas confirmed that multi-masking is very beneficial and allows for the differences in our skin to be addressed individually and says, "For example, It’s not uncommon for people to have an oily T-zone, but dry cheeks and chin. You would want to use a mask designed to help regulate oil production on an oily T-zone, but the same mask could create a problem over dry cheeks."

After giving it some solid thought and realising this might be the key to the ultimate glowy flawless skin, we can't help but think it sounds too good to be true. 

So we've contacted the skincare gods from ACEOLOGY and La Mav to give us the lowdown on the dos and don'ts of the ultimate guide to multi-masking! 

Top 3 Do’s Of Masking:

  1. Always properly cleanse your face before applying a treatment mask.
  2. Use a mask at least once a week.
  3. Focus on ingredients and use the right mask for your specific skin concern.

Top 3 Don’ts Of Masking:

  1. Don’t mix or layer two masks with different active ingredients.
  2. Don’t wash your face after using a sheet mask, instead, let your skin soak all the goodness of bioactive ingredients.
  3. Don’t forget to apply the mask to the neck and decolletage as these areas age fast
