Map It Out: How to Properly Apply Multiple Masks to Your Face

It’s true that one complexion does not fit all. Everyone’s skin features its very own personality, with specific needs, individual concerns, and personal likes and dislikes. Because our skin is so unique, it is important that we each take a personalized approach when treating our skin to a pampering session of skincare tender love and care. *Enter Mask Mapping*


Instead of applying the same mask to your whole face, mask mapping allows you to apply multiple face masks to different areas for a customized treatment that checks all your skincare boxes. Mask Mapping is a wonderful way to cater to your complexion’s various skin types and concerns while streamlining your skin care routine so that it is both easy and efficient. Not to mention it is super simple!

To begin, use COSMEDIX easy “Mask Mapping Guide” below to help you analyze your skin and select the best face mask options for your complexion. Once you’ve chosen your different face mask options, apply them to the appropriate areas of the face with our Dual-Sided Silicone Mask Applicator. Now, put your customized face mask combo to work for 10-15 minutes, then remove with a damp cloth. Voila! It’s as easy as 1,2,3!
