What is Multi-Masking? And should you be doing it? Multi-masking is quite useful and practical. It simply means applying more than one facial mask to your face at the same time. Sometimes it is possible to have a mixture of two or more skin types. By applying two or more face mask it allows you to deal with multiple skin issues that you may be dealing with. Skin care isn’t a one size fits all remedy today. There are so many facial masks available to identify and treat various skin concerns.

And this is because of diet change, climate change, change of the seasons and physical changes to your body.
