Multi-Masking |


Meet ‘multi-masking’, the latest skincare trend sweeping social media. It involves using a combination of face masks at once to target specific areas of your face thereby creating bespoke, facial-mimicking results at home. 

Like so many skincare movements, it originated in the Far East with the Japanese brand Boscia, and has quickly developed a loyal following of beauty lovers, who showcase their ‘paint-by-numbers’ treatments on Instagram with the hashtag #multimasking.

Far from a gimmick, multi-masking actually makes perfect sense for those of us with combination complexions, requiring multiple treatments at once. While Boscia’s products aren’t available in the UK, it’s oh-so-easy to tap into the trend by choosing a careful mix of masks for your skin.

Try a pore-minimising and deep cleansing formula on your oily T-zone to help banish blackheads and spots (we rate REN’s Detox option), teamed with a line-banishing blend around the delicate eye area (look to targeted masks such as Shisheido’s WrinkleResist offering) and finish things off with a hydrating and glow-boosting treatment on your cheeks.

Ideal for those short on time, this may just be the most effective complexion-restoring technique we’ve heard of in ages.
