Beauty Dictionary: Multimasking
With new products, shades, tips, and tricks coming out every week, how are you supposed to keep up with all that's going on in the beauty world? We've got you covered. We've already broken down strobing, microdermabrasion, and photoaging. Up next, we're tackling multimasking.
The word: Multimasking
What it means: Using multiple facial masks, typically clay, gel, or cream, to target specific areas and concerns.
Also known as: Tailoring your facial mask routine to be completely customized to your needs.
What it does: Tackles everything from acne, lines, wrinkles, dryness—you name it. As long as there's a mask for it, you can utilize it in multimasking.
What it doesn't do: Work with sheet masks. Although you can use just about any face mask, it's best to stick to gels, creams, clay masks, or patches. Sheet masks don't work well with this process as the entire idea is to concentrate on specific areas and needs and a sheet mask will cover your entire face.
In office or at home?: You can absolutely try multimasking at home! In fact, it's a great way to utilize all of those half-used products you have sitting around. Some spas and salons do practice multimasking if you're in the mood for an expert's touch!
