You already target different areas of your face: eye cream, lip balm, moisturizer... the list goes on. But did you know that the same idea can be applied to masking? Multimasking is the concept of applying more than one mask to different areas of the face at the same time, to target the different needs of each part of the face.

Targeting and treating specific areas maximizes the skincare benefits, since not all areas of your face are created equal! For example: the eye area is more delicate, the nose has more pores and the t-zone is infamous for being oily compared to the rest of the face.

Multimasking is not only great for skin, but it’s a great way to treat all of your different skin concerns without dedicating hours of your time layering, removing and reapplying different products. And you know we’re all about multitasking at Wander Beauty!

Have you been thinking about multimasking but don’t know where to begin? Here’s everything you need to know about the different regions of your face, and how to treat them.

Under Eyes

The under eye area is known to be more delicate and in need of extra hydration to keep fine lines and wrinkles at bay. Signs of stress, lack of sleep and even dehydration are the first to appear here, which means that it’s all about choosing a brightening and hydrating targeted mask for this delicate area.

That’s why we love Baggage Claim Gold Eye Masks for maximum impact. The secret to these magical masks? It’s all in the three layers: The gold foil prevents evaporation, the middle elastic layer adheres to skin and the third cellulose fiber effectively delivers key ingredients like hyaluronic acid to intensely hydrate and plump the delicate eye area. Using an eye mask (rather than a cream mask) means no unnecessary tugging and preserving skin’s elasticity.

T-Zone/Nose

Ever wonder why this part of your face gets greasy while the rest of your face remains calm? That’s because more oil glands are found in the t-zone (forehead, nose, and chin) which contribute to excess sebum production. This area of your face may feel more congested than the rest, so you’ll need to pay it more attention. Control shine and balance this area with a clay mask. The clay will absorb excess oil and draw out impurities… the same ones that lead to acne and blackheads! After the application of most clay masks, you will feel it dry and your skin will tighten. This is totally normal as the clay is absorbing all the gunk from your pores. Sit back and rinse off with warm water once clay is dry. 

Want an even more targeted treatment? Apply a peel off mask, like Lift Off Peel Off Mask, and target the t-zone (or entire face) for instant de-clogging of pores!

Dry Spots

Pesky dry patches can be accentuated whenever makeup is applied over it, so it’s super important to treat them for smoother looking skin. Dry skin cells also have a habit of clogging pores! Use hydrating masks with oils to help penetrate the upper layers of skin for long-lasting moisture.
