TREND ALERT: SAY HELLO TO THE MAGIC OF MULTIMASKING
Most of us have combination skin. Sometimes it can feel like a battle between finding the perfect blend of products that anti-age but don’t leave us too dry, and delivery hydration and radiance but don’t make us too oily. Enter the completely brilliant new trend of multimasking. Because the different areas of our face present different skincare challenges, it makes perfect sense to treat these areas using different products.
“pores are larger in the T-Zone and it generally tends to be a bit oiler than the rest of the face thanks to the higher amount of oil glands”
T-ZONE Our T-Zone is the portion of the face made up of the forehead, nose, chin and area circling the mouth. Shockingly…it got this name because it forms a T on the face. For most people, the pores are larger in the T-Zone and it generally tends to be a bit oiler than the rest of the face thanks to a higher amount of oil glands positioned there.
The T-Zone needs a greater amount of exfoliation and deep pore treatments than the rest of the face. Depending on your skin type, you’ll want to use either a deep pore cleansing mask, an exfoliating masque, or an acne mask in this area. We love our AGELESS total resurfacing masque from ImageSkincare or PureExpert Balancing Mask from Germaine, which delivers dual-exfoliation technologies to gently buff away dead skin cells and impurities while rejuvenating skin.
C H E E K S Our Cheeks can present a host of various skincare issues. For some, the cheeks tend to be much drier than the rest of the skin. For others, acne tends to plague this area, particularly along the jawline. Some people experience pigmentation (or brown spots) on the cheeks due to overexposure to the sun and UV damage.
Choose a mask that works for your particular skin issue. Have more than one issue in the same area? No problem. We love layering products underneath our masks for the ultimate one-two punch of powerful prevention and protection. To lighten, tighten and brighten the cheeks, try layering ImageSkincares’ ILUMA intense brightening serum beneath a blend of our ILUMA brightening exfoliating powder and our AGELESS total resurfacing masque for a special kick. Or perhaps you prefer Germaine’ Hydracure Hydrating mask for that extra moisture (tip- you can even sleep in this moisture mask to rehydrate and plump your skin twice a week).
U N D E R E Y E A R E A The delicate Under Eye Area is often forgotten during masking treatments. Don’t miss out on an opportunity to pamper your peepers! Common issues found in this zone are dehydration, ne lines and wrinkles, puf ness and dark circles. Most people will need a serious dose of hydration beneath the eyes, so we recommend layering in this area with a hydrating product like our ImageSkincares’ VITAL C hydrating eye recovery gel. For dark circles, try layering our ORMEDIC balancing eye lift gel with our ORMEDIC balancing gel masque. One of my all time favourites, is the Germaine TimeExpert Rides Eye Patches with a thin layer of my TimeExpert Rides Day Eye cream underneath for relaxing my expression lines under my eyes and giving them an instant plump and glow.
FOREHEAD The Forehead is another area that may need a little extra TLC. Though generally considered part of the T-Zone, the forehead can present another set of skin issues entirely. For some, this area is a major source of concern due to ne lines, wrinkles and pigmentation. Before you run to your stylist to request a fancy new set of bangs, give multimasking a try. You’ll be surprised how far a little retinol and a lot of hydration can go. For this zone we love layering our AGELESS total retinol-a crème beneath the MAX stem cell masque and/or our AGELESS total resurfacing masque.

HOW TO LAYER
- (black) T-Zone and chin areas need the most exfoliation due to larger pores and higher amounts of oil glands.
- (white) Take tender care of under eye areas with gentle, hydrating masks.
- (aqua) Cheeks are versatile and vary by individual. Ask your aesthetician which mask addresses your speci c skin concern.
- (orange) The décolleté area is often forgotten and tends to be one of the rst places to show the signs of aging. Skin in that area is very fine and sensitive so go for a gentle yet anti-aging mask such as ImageSkincares’ the MAX stem cell masque.
