In honor of Valentine’s Day today I wanted to talk about one beauty treatment that I do that you can also do today to really treat yourself…multi-masking. What is it, you ask? Well, it’s quite simply when you mix several face masks and treat specific areas of your face based on what the mask does. Aside from the visual being super Insta-friendly, you end up with perfectly treated skin…and what’s better than glowing, hydrated skin, am I right?
Step one: Identify the areas of your face you want to treat and how.
For me, I have sensitive cheeks that are prone to redness and irritation (thanks to mild rosacea) so I like to use a really hydrating mask (with typically no active ingredients) in that area. My nose is where I tend to get a little clogging and blackheads, so in that area I’ll use a more intense exfoliator. And, lastly, for my chin and forehead I want to brighten and smooth so I’ll use a brightening mask in those areas. Like I said, it really depends on your own skin so map it out and then pull your face masks based on those needs.
Step two: Apply your masks.
The order here doesn’t really matter as long as you don’t have a mask that’s super runny. I start with the JAFRA Mud Mask – a new masking favorite of mine. The Mud Mask feels instantly cooling and hydrating on the skin literally the second you apply it and it’s comprised of dead sea mineral mud, clays, vitamin E and antioxidants that all help to unclog pores, impurities and dead skin cells, but in the gentlest way possible so, like I said, it’s perfect for anyone with sensitive skin.
Second I apply JAFRA ROYAL Revitalize Volcanic Micro Polish Mask to my nose to get rid of those annoying little blackheads! This micro-exfoliating mask gently polishes away dull skin, but with out stripping the skin of its natural moisture. The brand’s Royal Jelly RJx increases the power of the natural royal jelly in this mask and helps with skin cell rejuvenation. And the part that visibly gets rid of my blackheads? The volcanic granules and papaya extract. Both ingredients buff the skin and remove toxins so that you’re left with a glowing, smooth face. You can absolutely use this mask on other parts of your face as well but I personally love it on my nose/t-zone since that’s where I need the most exfoliation.
Lastly, I apply the JAFRA ROYAL Luna Bright Brightening White Clay Mask. This mineral-packed mask is specifically formulated to address dullness and discoloration, which is why I love using it on my forehead and chin! It draws out dirt and grime, while also absorbing excess oil and removing surface build up leaving soft, even and refreshed skin.
Step three: Remember to moisturize.
After leaving your masks on for about 20-30 minutes, wash off with warm water and remember to moisturize! Even when you use a super hydrating mask like the Mud Mask, it’s still super important to replenish any moisture lost with your favorite every day moisturizer.
Step four: Remember to not overdo it.
Multi-masking is super fun, duh, but remember not to overdo it. You should only multi-mask one time a week max or your skin might start acting up and you could start getting breakouts and sensitivity.
