Multimasking: a beauty trend for a lovely complexion

How to combine face masks
Multimasking means applying different masks to different areas of your face. Your ‘T-zone‘ – cheeks and eye area – have different needs. NIVEA explains where each mask is ideally suited.

What is multimasking?

The skin on your face is not the same everywhere. It can be sometimes be drier on your cheeks, whereas the ‘T-zone‘ is often oily and shiny. The multimasking beauty trend brings balance back to your complexion. It gives each area of your face the type of care that it needs.

Multimasking to combat blemished and dry skin

With multimasking, you apply multiple masks at the same time, while ensuring that they do not overlap. Each mask moisturises just one specific area of your face.

Is it really necessary to use several masks?

The different parts of your face have quite different needs. For most people, the ‘T-zone‘ area is oilier and therefore more prone to impurities. By contrast, your cheeks become dry much easier. This imbalance is particularly noticeable in combination skin. A common feature of all skin types is that the skin near the eyes is particularly delicate and sensitive.

If you want to meet these different needs, you should use cleansing and moisturising products that harmonise with your individual skin type and each different part of your face.

This is the principle of multimasking. This beauty trend uses several masks at the same time. The reason for this is that not all face masks are meant to be used on your whole face. Instead, they are optimised for individual areas. By combining different masks, every area of your face receives the type of care it needs – promoting radiant and silky soft skin.
