If you are a fan of the “multimasking”, Akane makes your dream come true. For those who don’t know what that is, the principle is simple. Instead of using one single mask, you apply one for each different part of your face. One on your forehead, one for your cheeks, one for your nose, etc…
You will find three masks: one against redness and irritation, another black one that purifies and unclogs and the last one, the white one, that exfoliates the skin. If you have very dry skin, the brand recommends using the “Bed and Breakfast” nourishing care oil (made with organic muesli…).
