No, this doesn’t involve playing dress-up (again), but it does mean accomplishing a few goals at once—a motherhood specialty. Multimasking is a technique that mimics what an aesthetician would do during a facial, with the goal of customizing your own skin-care remedy. You can do it in your bathroom (once the kids are asleep) in one of two ways.

1. Apply multiple masks at once to different areas of your face to tackle specific concerns. For example, use a clay formula for your oily forehead and a moisturizing mask for your dry chin, along with a blackhead treatment for your nose.

2. If you have the time, use a series of masks in succession—start with a clay mask to clean out pores, follow with a moisturizing one to rehydrate skin and finish with cooling eye pads.
