It’s been a trend among beauty bloggers for a few months now, so I decided to try out layering face masks a few days ago to see what all the hype was about.
Quite often I find I’m allergic to face masks, so when I find ones that my skin doesn’t react to I find it hard to choose which one to use. But now I don’t have to! Skin isn’t all the same on your face, like I’ve said recently I’ve been getting dry patches on my usually oily skin but still having the oily skin in other areas. Some areas may need brightening, some areas may have enlarged pores that need dealing with, and some areas may need super hydration. This is where layering face masks is a really good idea.
I went for 3 face masks when I tried this out – Along Came Betty’s Pure Pores detox face mask for my cheeks and by my nose where my pores are enlarged, Yes To Cucumber’s Calming face mask on the outer parts of my face and jaw line, and Lush’s Mask of Magnaminty on my nose, forehead and chin.
The trick is to pick masks that will do different things for the different problems on your face. I find the minty mask helps with breakouts, which I had on those areas. The Along Came Betty’s mask helps reduce appearance of pores, which I have a problem with on my cheeks. I just used the calming mask on the rest of my face so that I didn’t irritate my skin.
I have to say, it did make a huge difference compared to when I usually do a face mask. My face was over all brighter, pores were tighter, and dry patches were gone. Layering face masks has revolutionised the at-home-facial. Give it a go and let me know how it went!
