Multi-Masking


Those of you who know me or follow me online will know that I'm very much of the school of thought of 'why have one pair of shoes when you can have five, ten, twenty, thirty pairs...'  I willingly apply this ethos to all areas of my life, so why take only one face mask into the bathroom alternate nights when you could take three or four or, five!?
This intstagram born beauty phenomenon of #multimasking is, all of sudden, taking the world by storm: possibly due to the practicality of the trendIt's genuinely useful and totally doable, it's not something that requires any expert knowledge or tact and it's pretty much guaranteed to give you the results you want as you tailor make your own mask-routine to suit the 'moment' your skin is having.
It's a an approach I've been utilising for years, an old school friend of mine used to work for Lush and we'd frequently play around with her (heavily discounted) face masks on weekends. It just made total sense not to put the mask promising 'black-head removal' on areas that didn't require such a service. 
Generally people (myself included) suffer from an oilier T-zone, which is prone to congestion's and blockages (all endearing beauty terms :/) so ideally you want to use a product containing salicylic acid in these troublesome areas in order to mattify and clear. Foreheads often need more hydration and products which boost collagen such and help with re-hydration and nourishment work best in this area. Look for masks which contain hydraluronic acid and any anti-ageging properties for the best results. 
So far, that's three products, three masks and three key zones. Totally manageable. If you're not one for fuss leave it there and stick to your trusty trouble-free three favourites. However, if you're looking to be a little more adventurous think about the delicate skin around your eyes, something that targets lightly targets lines, rehydrates and contains Vitamin C - like a retinol. If you want to go all out work a mask into your routine which contains super-absorbent Zinc Oxide and Sulfer to really work on troublesome, spot prone areas like your chin.
I personally alternate between the following approach, leisurely applying:
. the heavenly Glam Glow SuperMud Mask to my T-Zone. A celeb favourite, this mask is worth every penny working magnetically to draw dirt from pores with Activated-X Charcoal to leave skin super smooth.
. Pai's BioRegenerate Rapid Radiance Mask, £30, to my cheeks to restore and replenish lacklustre skin 
. Origins' Out of Trouble 10 Minute Mask, £23, to my chin as a rapid response to whatever horrors that may be coming though. Eliminate these at the root cause with super Salicylic acids! 
. GlamGlow's PowerMud, £50, either to my forehead or allover. This mud-to-oil mask detoxifies renewing the skin and leaving super smooth results!..


Do you multi-mask? If so, let me know which products you use in your mix up into your weekly routine.
