Be a Multi-Masking Pro

September 18, 2015

How many of us have skin that behaves consistently all over the face? None of us. The skin that beautifully covers the landscape of your face varies a lot in thickness, how much it moves throughout the day to accommodate your expression, and how much oil is naturally produced. Enter the brilliance of multi-masking.

No one knows your skin better than you do. To get the full benefit of multi-masking, you need to be aware of how the different areas on your face behave. You may differ from the usual combination, in which case use your own discretion, but the majority tends to break down into three or four main areas:

T-Zone The area that most commonly produces more oil is called your T-zone . This territory spans across the forehead, down the nose, and often includes the chin. The T-zone will most benefit from a mask with a purifying action which will draw our impurities, dissolve blackheads, and have some astringency capabilities to control blemishes. This is why our Deep-Cleansing Mask contains Tea Tree, Kaolin Clay, and Rosemary.

Around The Eyes The under eye area and outside corners of the eyes is the area where our skin is the thinnest and shows the first signs of aging. This area needs hydration and ingredients with anti-aging and restorative benefits. Our Restorative Mask utilizes Coconut Oil, Spirulina and Ginseng to provide the right kind of nourishment for this territory which displays wear and tear the quickest.

The Cheeks The cheeks are most often our driest area, especially during the winter as we are exposed to dry air, cold temperatures, and wind. Use our Hydrating Mask on the cheeks to draw moisture from the air into your skin and to replenish the skin's natural moisture barrier. We've included Aloe Vera for its ability to deeply hydrating, and Honey which is a natural humectant.

Sensitive Skin If you've got patches of skin that are more prone to redness or irritation, this is the perfect place for our Calming Mask which uses two of the most therapeutic and soothing ingredients known to man (Lavender and Oat) to soothe, hydrate and nourish.

You'll enjoy your temporary 'paint-by-number' look, and you'll smell like a garden while you multi-mask. But best of all you'll appreciate the ability to be more prescriptive with your skin care when you catch a glance of your glowing complexion the next time you walk by a reflective surface.
