Double masking might be the end of all your skin woes!

Ever since the Korean skincare routine gained traction, doing two steps twice and using two products simultaneously has become quite the trend.

Double-masking refers to two different types of methods.

Method 1: Applying one mask, washing it off and then applying the second mask.

Method 2: Applying two different masks simultaneously on different parts of the face.

Double masking might be the end of all your skin woes.

Let’s talk about each method in detail.

Method 1: You apply one mask, wash it off and then apply the second mask. The idea is to apply two different masks, each serving a different purpose. For example, you can slather on a mud mask for problem areas and to draw out impurities from the skin. Then rinse it off and apply a cooling mask or a lightweight moisturizing mask to calm and moisturize the skin.

Always pick layering mask combinations carefully. There is no point in applying a mud mask followed by a peel mask, or applying an acne mask followed by a heavy moisturizing mask. Either you will unnecessarily agitate the skin or negate the benefits of the first mask with the second.

Method 2: Applying two masks simultaneously, each on different parts of the face seems like a more effective remedy for combination skin types. If you have an oily T-zone but dry cheeks, applying only one type of mask onto the entire face might create issues in some areas. For example, a mud mask will work wonders for your T-zone but the dry cheeks are going to hate it.

So, for a balanced approach, you can try applying a mud mask to the oily parts and a moisturizing mask to the dry parts of your face. You will gain twice the benefits in one face mask sitting.
