Year after year, we see masks in every form topping your list of skincare favorites. We aren’t complaining — they are our favorites too. Nothing compares to the joy of slathering your face with a hydrating mask while binge-watching your favorite Netflix show and a glass of wine in hand. And if the recent Insta beauty craze is anything to go by, using several masks in one go aka Multimasking.
Enter: Nykaa’s Clay It Cool masks. From those stubborn blackheads on your T-Zone to tough-to-get-rid-of dark spots on your forehead, this masking range will attend to all your skin problems. To top it off, their masks can be identified by different colors to make multimasking a breeze.
Before you multimask…
While multimasking sounds like a dream come true, there are some rules you need to follow.
- Before picking a mask, make sure you analyze your skin first. Dry, flaky skin doesn't always imply a hydrating mask. In fact, an exfoliating mask would be the perfect pick in this scenario to get rid of dead skin cells.
- It goes without saying, don't apply masks before washing your face first. Cleansing will remove any debris that might be clogging those pores.
- Make sure you don't over mask. Multimasking often can lead to irritated skin. An ideal choice would be to mask once every week. Of course, you need to consider skin sensitivity first.
For The Radiant Glow
Multimask with: White & Yellow
As millennials, dull skin definitely tops our list of skin concerns. The pollution is no friend of our skin either. No wonder brightening masks were a rage in 2019. So, if you are relying on just one mask to do the job, sorry to break it to you, it’s not gonna happen. Say hello to your multitasking warriors: Perfect Glow and Spot Corrector. While the former boasts of Amla, Cocoa Powder and Kojic Acid, the latter combines Turmeric, Goji Berry Fruit Extract and Morus Alba Root Extract. Gently exfoliate your T-Zone with the white mask and apply the yellow one on your forehead and cheeks. Rinse it off after 10 to 15 minutes to get the glow.
Multimask with: Black & Green
With smog taking over our country, one state at a time, your skin needs more protection than ever. ‘Coz all the dust, dirt and impurities don’t just stay on the top layer. They penetrate deep into the skin and refuse to come out. And no, scrubbing for hours at a stretch isn’t the solution either. You need effective multi-taskers (in this case, maskers!) from the get-go. With Charcoal and Cucumber as their main ingredients, Pore Perfect and Daily Detox will be the perfect pair from this range. Use the black one on your T-Zone area to unclog pores and really pull out the gunk and the green one on your forehead and cheeks to make your skin smoother and firmer.
For Oil Control
Multimask with: Blue & Lilac
If you have oily skin, I want to break free (from acne) is probably your anthem. We are pretty sure masks are among your favorite beauty buys already. Let's give it to them — they do a pretty good job at controlling the excess oil buildup. But, you know what is even better? Multimasking! Why use one when two can do a better job, especially Anti-Acne and Sebum Control clay masks. Salicylic Acid’s anti-inflammatory properties will calm down the breakouts and we all trust Tea Tree Oil's power to combat acne.
Multimask with: Pink & Yellow
If you're in your mid-20s, you have already started stressing about those fine lines around your eyes. Don't worry, we are all in the same boat. This is why we as editors emphasize on following a trusted anti-ageing skincare regime from the early 20s. So, get your hands on the Ageless Beauty mask from this range. You might not even need to multimask with this pink bottle of goodness because it oozes of effective anti-ageing soothers like Green Tea Leaf Extract, Gingko Biloba Leaf Extract and Gotu Kola Extract. But you can always double up the anti-ageing effect by pairing it with the Spot Corrector. Its active ingredient, Turmeric, will give you the clear skin you deserve.
