Though not entirely new to us, the exhausting Korean 10-step skincare routine is still gaining fresh fans daily. And then, there are those on the other side of the fence — the loyalists of the minimalist cleanse-tone-moisturise regimen. Earlier this year, yet another Korean technique called the seven-skin method found popularity...yep, if you’re a true blue beauty junkie, you’ll find no lack of new skincare tricks to add to your routine.
What are beauty insiders into at the moment? Double-masking. Taking inspiration from existing cleansing and hydrating trends that basically require users to do steps twice or use two products simultaneously, this masking routine is fast gaining traction.
Let’s break it down, shall we?
There are two techniques when it comes to double-masking. The first: Using two masks, one after the other, for maximum benefits. The second: Using two or more different masks simultaneously — different formulas for separate parts of your face.
We’d like to bring your attention to the latter, a method that makes total sense to us because different parts of your face have different needs, especially if you have combination skin. If you have an oily T-zone and dry cheeks, slathering a mask formulated for greasy skin on your entire face is going to dry your cheeks out even further.
To ensure your skin is getting what it needs, mix and match your masks for a doubly effective masking routine. There are a whole bunch of combinations you can explore. Use a brightening mask on your cheeks and an anti-aging mask on your forehead and laugh lines, or use a clay mask on blemished zones and a moisturising one on the rest of your face. Targeted treatments for maximum benefits, that’s the way to go.
