Sure, we’d love it if there were a single product that could treat our flaky T-zone, oily cheeks and dark under-eye circles in one fell swoop…but complexions, man. They’re complicated. Enter multi-masking, the ultra-luxurious beauty trend that’s taking over Instagram--and our Friday nights.
What it is: The trick to multi-masking is to use not just one, but a variety of products simultaneously and on different areas of your face to spot treat your complexion’s needs.
Where it came from: The trend was first introduced by the Japanese skin-care brand Boscia via its Multi-Masking Medley, a collection of four peel-off masks designed to mattify, purify, brighten and calm skin all at the same time.
How to DIY it: Raid your bathroom beauty supply and pull out all your favorite masks: A hydrating option (like this one) for your flaky T-zone; a pore-clearing mask (like this one) for your oily cheeks; a soothing one (like this one) for your puffy eyes. Then apply each product simultaneously to the correct areas on your face.
That’s it? Yep, just be sure to mind the directions and timing to avoid irritation--or choose masks that can sit on your skin for the same amount of time.
Why we love it: You can feel like you’re at the spa while you’re really on the couch watching Ballers.
