Muti masking tips and common mistakes to avoid when using face masks. How to get the most benefit from face masks and what kind of products to use…….
One of the recent popular trends is to multi-mask. Many people like me need different masks for different parts of their face. Today I’m talking about common mistakes to avoid when multi-masking.
Always clean your skin throughly before applying face mask to see the full benefit and avoid any irritation.
- Applying all masks at the same time
Pay close attention to instructions for each mask. Different masks require different times so don’t apply them all at once. First, apply the one that needs more time. Apply other masks with enough delay so you can rinse/wipe them altogether. Otherwise it would be hard to clean one mask without disturbing others.
- Not applying on your neck
That’s one of the most common mistakes that many do. Apply your mask on your neck too. Especially when you’re using moisturizing mask. Since the neck is one of the first areas that shows aging signs it would be wise to give it as much attention as your face.
Although we all have one or two favorite brands I believe in trying different brands when it comes to face mask. I generally use The BodyShop face masks. For clay face mask I prefer Glam Glow and for removing black heads I only use Jorgobé peel off mask (read the review here). Don’t be afraid to try out different brands, you never know what you might find.
- Not using proper products afterwards
Depending on what kind of mask you’re using your skin needs different types of products afterward. Make sure that you know exactly how your face mask works and what kind of treatment will benefit your skin more after using it.

I change my skin care routine almost every season to protect my skin. One of the most important factors is to choose a right moisturizer according to the weather. A few months back when I was about to buy a new moisturizer/ day cream I decided to give the Lancôme Hydra Zen anti stress moisturizing cream a try since Hydra Zen Beauty Essence is one of my favorite( read my review on the Hydra Zen Beauty Essence here).
During last four months I use the cream every morning on my face and neck. It makes me fall in love with my skin again. I don’t see any redness that used to appear on my skin after spending a few hours outside in the cold.
Although Hydra Zen moisturizing cream has rather a rich consistency it does not feel heavy on skin. It makes my skin soft and keep it moisturized all day without making it oily. The surprising part is that the cream has the same affect on the t-zone (which is oily) as the rest of my face. Having a combination skin type make it really hard to find a good moisturizer like that. So there is no surprise that I love this one so much that I’ve already purchased the second one.
The only down point I can think of is that the Lancôme anti stress cream is not perfume-free so there is a chance that those who are really sensitive to smell won’t like it. I personally don’t have any problem with the scent since it’s really pleasant and makes me feel even more fresh. You can check out the cream here and the beauty essence here.
