What Is Binge-Masking? The New Facial Mask Trend

Binge MaskingMaybe you’ve heard of binge-masking or maybe we have you totally confused. Binge and mask? Do those words really go together? The answer is a resounding yes! If you’ve been asking what is binge-masking and how do I do it, then you’ve come to the right place. We’re going to lead you through the latest trend in facial masks and give you the knowledge do it at home.

So what is binge-masking exactly? It is the leisurely process of applying two to three face masks, one right after the other, and rinsing them off entirely before applying the next mask. This is an easy way to give your skin a higher concentration of beneficial ingredients and tackle multiple concerns in one go. The concept is simple, but you don’t just do it willy-nilly.
