From hormonal breakouts and hyper-pigmentation to redness and inflammation, your clients rely on you to provide solutions to their skincare problems. Your job just got easier now that education experts and professional skin care therapists at Dermalogica have introduced a multi-masking approach that seems to work wonders. The idea is to treat different zones with different masques. Let’s say you’re looking to treat aging skin that’s also sensitive. According to Annet King, Director of Global Education at The International Dermal Institute and Dermalogica, you might want to use their Skin Hydrating Masque on zones 5, 7, 9 and 12 to soothe redness and inflammation, while applying Power Recovery Masque to zones 1, 2, 3, 11, 13 and 14 to address fine lines and uneven pigmentation.
Here, King shares some of her favorite problem-solving combos with us.
1. Hormonal Breakouts and Pigmentation Apply Sebum Clearing Masque to zones 11-13 to treat hormonally-induced breakouts with salicylic acid. Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque on zones 1, 2, 3, 5, 7 and 9 will brighten skin with a blend of vitamins A, C and E.
2. Dehydration and Aging Skin The Skin Hydrating Masque, which contains cucumber and hyaluronic acid, will replenish typically dehydrated zones such as 5-14. Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque can be applied to zones 1-3 to plump up fine lines and address visible signs of aging.
3. Breakouts and Sensitivity Gentle Cream Exfoliant applied to breakout-prone zones 5, 7 and 9 will slough away dead skin cells, while Skin Hydrating Masque ensures proper hydration when covering the remaining zones.
4. Oily and Dehydrated Skin Apply Skin Refining Masque, formulated with kaolin and bentonite clays to absorb excess oil, on zones 1-3, 7 and 12. Moisturize the surrounding zones with Skin Hydrating Masque.
5. Teen Skin with Breakouts and Sensitivity Apply Breakout Clearing Cooling Masque on zones 5 and 9 and reduce irritation over the rest of the face with calming Skin Hydrating Masque.
