Multi-masking

Written by  

Multi-masking is the latest beauty trend sweeping the social media landscape. Clients are starting to question why one mask would solve all of the diverse problems of the face. As a result, they are using different masks on different parts of their face. The theory behind this concept is that multiple masks can address all of the facial issues much better than just one.

For example, someone with breakouts on their forehead and nose might use a mask with salicylic acid for their T-zone. If they experience dryness near their cheeks, they might use a moisturizing mask for that area of their face. They could then use a different mask for their eye area. This trend is becoming so popular that companies are actually creating multi-masking sets that contain small samples of different masks.
Despite the popularity of this latest skin care movement, dermatologists are warning people to take caution before multi-masking. The main concern is that clients are using these masks without knowing exactly what the ingredients are. Dr. Rachel Nazarian of Schweiger Dermatology Group, told Marie Claire magazine, “My only concern is the more products you place on your face, the higher the chance of having an allergic reaction.” Furthermore, clients should be diligent about mask times, as different masks will need to be removed at different times.
As multi-masking gains traction, skin care professionals should remind clients to be aware of the ingredients, possible allergic reactions, and mask times. Clients should also be reminded that the best way to address combination skin is to see a professional for expert, tailor-made recommendations.
