Everyone has a different skin type and various concerns they want to address when it comes to skincare. There are broadly 3 skin types: Dry, oily and combination.

People with dry skin are always on the look-out for ultra moisturizing and hydrating products. Meanwhile, oily skin is more acne prone so people with oily skin hunt for non-comedogenic, light products.

Combination skin is all of these concerns combined. Therefore, it is important to take special care of combination skin to avoid aggravating one skin concern while trying to treat another.

What is multi-masking? 

Multi-masking is a skincare hack that involves using different products suitable to different areas of the face simultaneously. There are hundreds of face masks available in the market. While some treat acne, others help you de-tan. One may use such a variety to their advantage and reap benefits of multiple masks, each treating a particular skin concern. This helps save time, effort and irritation caused due to using the wrong products.

  • Apply the face masks simultaneously
  • Leave on for 20 mins and rinse off with room temperature water
  •  Multi-masking can be done 1-2 times a week to treat any and all skin concerns.
