Chapter 1 | What is binge-masking
What Is Binge-Masking? The New Facial Mask Trend.
Maybe 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.
Chapter 2 | Rules of binge-masking
Here are some basic rules to stick to:
1. Only do it once a week
2. Do not use more than one face mask with chemical or physical exfoliants in it
3. Apply them in the right order
Endulge your skin with binge-masque

Binge-Masque Recipe for Deeply Clean & Minimized Pores
Ingredients: Katari Argil Green Clay (1 teaspoon), warm water (2 teaspoons)
Apply Argil Clay Mask for 5-15 min (rinse off completely when your skin feels tight). I usually explain it like this - "when you cannot smile, rinse it off". You will know...
Ingredients: Baking Soda, Apple Cider Vinegar, and Lemon Juice
How to mix: Use a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, and a teaspoon of lemon juice and pour enough baking soda powder to form a paste. Baking soda is my true love in terms of skin cleansers, balancing skin's pH level and gingerly removing dead skin cells and oil build-up.
Ingredients: Oatmeal, Nutmeg, and Garlic
Trust me, the scent of garlic is not as offensive as you think! Oatmeal is an amazing exfoliate and is even listed with the FDA as a natural treatment for many skin conditions. Nutmeg is a natural anti-inflammatory with antiseptic properties that will clean the crap out of your skin and as a known antiseptic, it will provide additional help cleansing. Don't even think about substituting another ingredient for garlic — this is going to be your jam for minimizing pores and in conjunction with the other ingredients, you'll be getting that deep cleanse you need for oil build-up.
And... always mix your ingredients in and with NEUTRAL accessories!
You do not want to alter pH of the masque and make it useless? Nope. So, do not use metal. Use wooden or glass accessories. This is why we made our beautiful accessories. Here is a little video to brag about them. But anything will do, as long as it is not metal. :)
