Face-Masquing: What’s the buzz about?
Social networks are buzzing with the latest trend in skin care– multi-masking. It’s time-saving, great for skin health and dermatologist (and Dermalogica!) approved. But what is it?
Multi-Masquing or Facemasquing as it’s known at Dermalogica combines multiple masques in one application, for example apply a clay based masque to combat oily skin in the t-zone and a hydrating masque to give you back your glow over the rest of the zones. Allowing you to combat multiple concerns and zones in the same amount of time, why fight just anti-ageing when you can fight anti-ageing, breakouts and pigmentation all at the same time! It’s a small revolution in your skincare regime!
Although masques are an overlooked element in most people’s skin routines they should be an essential, great for travelling and in between treatments to give your skin they pick-me-up it sometimes needs. When you blanket your skin in a masque you are allowing it time to absorb all the powerful ingredients contained within the masque itself, giving your skin some me-time.
Gone are the cucumber days
Gone are the days where we would have to soak in the bath patiently applying one masque one month and a different one the next, all the time hoping for results but not really seeing any. The modern savvy skin care user now uses multiple masks in one application allowing her skin to glean maximum benefits, she applies masques not monthly but weekly to get maximise ingredient penetration and results and she doesn’t sit in the bath waiting the masques to get to work. She irons, cooks, cleans and works (maybe even catches a long-haul flight!) this means just because you have a masque on doesn’t mean your legs stop working. I personally take my masque time whilst watching TV, I apply the masque before the show starts, leave it to absorb during the show and then remove it during the adverts. Skin care routine done!
