As the name suggests, it involves applying more than one type of mask to your face, usually simultaneously and on different parts of your face. Multimaskers recommend using several different treatments at the same time to get a customized skin remedy (which is exactly what an esthetician does during your facial).
As ridiculous as it may look, it's a trend that's practical and yields major complexion benefits, when done correctly. In fact, the patch-work approach is so intuitive I can't believe we weren't using this technique from the get-go. After all, puffy eyes and an oily T-Zone call for completely different active ingredients—it really begs the question of whether or not one mask can really do it all? hmm also now we have an excuse to buy multiple masks (yay!).
It may not be as quick as a sheet mask, and you need to have a big roster of masks on hand....my poor bank account! But, for beauty devotees willing to shell out *and* carve out a little extra time in their regimen, I say go for it! And to ensure you've got the right active ingredients in your repertoire, Marie Claire created a graphic that breaks it down based on Dr. Nazarian's key ingredients and where to apply them.
Eyes: "Retinol helps diminish fine wrinkles and helps to thicken the delicate skin around the eyes. Masks specifically indicated for this area are better tolerated than using masks made for thicker-skinned areas."
Cheeks and Lateral Planes: "Masks with Vitamin C, peptides, and anti-aging properties are best for area that show most sun damage. These ingredients help remove sun spots, and fight the early signs of sun-damage: loss of elasticity in the skin, and fine line formation." Marie-Claire
Apparently Boscia, has a #multimasking kit (you can find it at Sephora) that you can use but I would recommend trying to find the skincare masks/creams that work best for you and use that in your multi-masking technique. Also, watch our for any allergic reactions as you are applying multiple products on your face at one time.
Here's a video from blogger, Nicole Guerriero on #multi-masking and the products she uses....Glamglow and Boscia is a very popular brand!
