For the uninitiated, Multi-masking is the technique of using different masks on different areas of the face simultaneously. The choice of mask depends on the specific need of the area. The practice is said to have originated in South Korea.

So what does it mean exactly ? Some of us have combination skin (an oily T zone with the rest of the face being normal/ dry) and what might work for our T – zone may be too drying for our cheeks. Multi-masking essentially means assessing the specific requirements of each part of our face and using masks accordingly. So we can use a deep pore cleansing / clay mask on the T zone which tends to be more oily and a hydrating mask on the rest of our face.

Even if you don’t have combination skin there are some masks that are too harsh for the under eye area. Sheet masks also shouldn’t be placed here but this area does need some TLC ; so we can apply a soothing eye mask to just this area and a different mask on the forehead, chin and cheeks. Whether we use 2, 3 or even 4 different masks at the same time is totally up to us (and the type of skin we have).

Why should you try it ? Customizing skincare yields more effective results. When we multi-mask there is targeted action for each zone of our face and we’re combating multiple issues simultaneously. For example, by using a clay mask on the T-zone we’re mattifying the area and by using an eye mask we’re hydrating the sensitive skin there. Also, applying different masks in one go saves time and frankly is a boon for those with combination skin.
