Masking is one of my favourite down-time activities because it’s relaxing but also comes with a lot of benefits for your skin. After years of using face masks though I’ve realized that in order to get the full benefits there are a few things you should do instead of just slapping on the mask! These tricks enhance the effects on your skin and make masking worth your while.
- Exfoliate before applying the mask. Getting rid of dead skin cells that may be clogging your pores helps the mask to penetrate the skin deeper.
- Follow the time suggestion on the instructions. Taking off your mask prematurely will prevent it from doing its full job and leaving it on for too long will dry out the skin.
- Multi-mask your face. One of the latest trends in the beauty industry is using more than one mask at the same time but on different parts of the face. Doing this helps you target the different skin concerns you may have like oiliness, dryness or sensitivity. Below are a couple of brands that carry multi-masking kits!
