So there’s this thing called multimasking – in which you put different masks on different parts of your face in order to tackle different skin concerns. Like other beauty bloggers out there I have tried this and, in all honesty, it’s not my favourite thing to do. So I’ve recently come up with a way to multi-mask the way I want. I basically block one afternoon out a week for myself and during that time use three different face masks to tackle the concerns I have for my skin type. These masks have quickly become my favourites and after putting them on my instagram story last week I had some of you asking about them and how I use them so today I am going to share that with you. I like to spend my Sunday afternoons chilling out watching YouTube videos or Netflix so what better time to treat your skin?
Also, I thought I’d put here my skin is combination. It’s fairly dehydrated however my t-zone gets quite oily as the day goes on and I tend to get quite a bit of congestion around my nose. Enough of that, on with the skincare.
1: Sand and Sky detoxifying and brightening Pink Clay Mask
I have spoken about this product so many times on my blog so I don’t think I need to say much more about it. I have just finished my first tub of this after having it for about 4 months which I think is pretty good going. I am obsessed! I love to watch clay masks as they dry because they actually feel like they’re doing something to my skin. After using this product my skin looks and feels a lot less congested and having to wait 20-30 minutes for this to dry means I have to chill for a little bit and those of you who know me know I struggle to stay still for long so this gives me the little pick up that I need at the end of the week.
2. The Ordinary AHA and BHA Peeling Solution
I have had this product for a while now but haven’t been that religious in using it. That was until recently when I realised it would be a great product to add to my multi-masking routine. This product is a 10-minute exfoliating mask containing both AHA and BHA acids. Together they are bottled up to use as a resurfacing peel for your face but shouldn’t be left on the skin for more than 10 minutes due to the high concentrate of acids in the product. When I first got this I was quite scared, I mean, it looks like a bottle of blood and when it’s on your face, it looks like you’re either covered in blood, having a severe allergic reaction or have fallen asleep in the sun without SPF! This stuff is good though. After using it my skin feels really soft as it has removed all those dead skin cells without being abrasive and I look less tired. I love this stuff and once I use it more regularly I can imagine my skin will just keep on improving. Side note, this product does tingle when I first put it on my face and isn’t recommended for sensitive skin so please use this with caution, I once used it when my skin was peeling after going away and I had to wash it off straight away. Listen to your skin with this once, a little tingle is fine but if its burning wash it off!!
3. Lixir Vitamin C Paste
Last but not least, I want to talk about the newest mask in my ever growing skincare collection – the Lixir Vitamin C Paste. This stuff does exactly what it says on the bottle – its a paste containing vitamin C. This is described as a quick morning mask but let’s be real here, I know my morning skincare routine is pretty extensive but I know what I’m doing and can do it all when I’m running late. If I got into the routine enough I’m sure I could add this in there but for now I’m leaving it as the last mask I like to do on my Sunday afternoon. This way I can leave the stuff on longer (about 15 minutes) and let it work its magic. My skin feels a lot plumper after using this, and brighter. Towards the end of the week my skin tends to look tired and dull and this is the little pick-me-up that it needs. And once this is done I’ve spent about an hour relaxing and spending some time on myself, who doesn’t need that from time to time?
Have you used any of these products? If so tell me what you think.
