The Magic of Multimasking

What masks to use where and why

We all love a good facial mask. They’re a great way to wind down and relax with a quick fifteen minutes of “you” time. This year, masks have evolved in many ways, including fun sheet masks with awesome built-in selfie opportunities and multimasking, the practice of applying multiple masks at the same time to different parts of your face in order to maximize your skin care payoff. It’s common practice to layer your products for the best results when it comes to makeup, so why not make the most of it and multimask? Here are some tips for what mask to put where, depending on your deepest mask desires:
 
Problem: Dry Skin
Solution: Moisturizing Mask
How it Helps: An oil based mask will help when your skin is dry. If your forehead or the apples of your cheeks could use some extra attention, a thick cream mask will hydrate your skin without clogging your pores. To maintain even more moisture, wipe the excess mask off with a towel instead of rinsing.
 
Problem: Dark Under-Eye Circles
Solution: Under-Eye Sheet Mask
How it Helps: A sheet mask will help minimize dark circles and puffiness under your eyes. Put your under-eye sheets in the fridge to really intensify the cooling effect.
 
Problem: Irritated Skin
Solution: Soothing/Calming Mask
How it Helps: Apply a soothing or calming mask to any areas that have been red or irritated. Look for a mask with ingredients like oatmeal and aloe that will bring your skin relief.

Problem: Anti-Aging
Solution: Brightening
How it Helps: If you’re looking for a mask that will give your skin a youth-boost, start with a mask that has exfoliating acids and brightening vitamins. Algae is a key ingredient in some brightening masks as well. Your cheeks and your chin are two good places to focus when it comes to anti-aging. For firmer skin, try a mask with a clay based formula.
 
Problem: Breakouts
Solution: Detoxifying
How it Helps: Apply a thick layer of charcoal mask to your breakout problem areas. Charcoal masks clear pores of dirt and impurities, so your next pimple never makes it to the surface. Clay masks can also be beneficial for breakouts, like the JAFRA Mud Mask. It has vitamin E and antioxidants that remove excess oils and dead skin cells. The JAFRA Clear Complexion Clarifying Mask is another great option.
