Multi-tasking with Masques!

Posted by GlyMed Plus Education Team on

We’ve all been there – a breakout on our chin followed by excessive oil in the t-zone and cheeks as dry as the Atacama Desert. Our skin just can’t seem to make up its mind on what skin type it’s going to be this week. Dealing with break outs is hard enough - let alone facing all of these conditions at the same time. How are you supposed to treat ALL of these conditions? The answer - MULTI-TASKING WITH MASQUES!

Not only is multi-tasking with masques an effective way to treat a variety of skin conditions - it also can be a lot of fun! Masque mapping has been used by estheticians for many years dating back to ancient Egyptian times when Romans like Cleopatra would use masks made of aloe vera, milk and honey on their face and body.

So how do you multi-task with masques? Easy! Apply different masques to areas of the face depending on how the skin is acting and what it needs. GlyMed Plus has a masque for every skin condition and skin type. Each masque can be mixed and matched to truly customize the treatment your client needs.
