OG Pooshies know—three masks are better than one. Kourt introduced the team to multi-masking (AKA using several different masks in a day) back in the early days of Poosh, and it’s one of our favorite tips we’ve ever gotten from her.
While we’ve noted this in multiple posts over the years, we recently realized we’ve never actually given multi-masking the stand-alone post that it deserves.
So today, we’re doing just that. Here’s a quick guide to multi-masking:
Multi-masking is, as you can probably guess, using more than one mask. Kourt does this as part of her self-care-Sunday wellness routine, detailed here, and typically uses three different masks. There are two main ways to do it—both allow us to customize our routine and target multiple issues.
1. Do several masks back to back. To be clear, this means applying one mask all over the face, letting it sit for the recommended amount of time, rinsing it off, and following with a different mask.
Tip: Before getting started, we recommend gently exfoliating to help clear away any buildup that could block the masks from penetrating your skin. Or, use an exfoliating mask as the first mask in your lineup.
2. Apply different masks to specific regions of the face at the same time. This way is great when we don’t have time to do each mask on its own or if different areas of our face need more targeted treatment.
Tip: We’ve found that this works especially well when we’re dealing with breakouts. We can spot treat areas prone to flare-ups with a deep-pore, cleansing mask and then use a gentler, hydrating mask on the rest of our face.
