Homemade or store-bought face masks are an easy, inexpensive way to invigorate and pamper your skin. Here are some tips to help you get the most out of your mask.
Step 1. If you are using a homemade mask, try to prepare a new batch each time you are about to pamper yourself
Step 2. If you are using a commercially available mask, have all the necessary tools with you; face mask applicator or wide brush
And, keep cotton pads and a towel with them.
Step 3. Cut two very thin slices of cucumber or potato to rest your eyes
Step 4. Store all of these items in the refrigerator to cool down by the time you are ready to use them
Step 5. At the same time, thoroughly cleanse your face
Step 6. Use a scrub if necessary
It removes dead skin cells and helps the mask work better.
Step 7. Steam your face for 2 minutes to open the pores
Alternatively, take a towel and dip it in hot water (as hot as your face can handle) and cover your face with it until it cools.
Step 8. Take a face mask applicator or a wide brush and use them to apply the mask
If you do not have such tools, make sure your hands are clean before applying the mask. Wash them if necessary and dry them completely before applying the mask.
Step 9. After applying the mask, place the cucumber or potato slices over your eyes and relax until the time indicated on the mask package or until it dries
Turn off the light. This will relax you better.
Step 10. After the specified waiting time, wipe the mask with a damp towel or cotton swab
In the case of clay masks, it is always best to rinse off the mask before it starts to harden. Try not to let it dry completely on your face.
Step 11. Then apply toner and moisturizer
- Rinse with cool water (not too cold) after removing the mask. It helps to close the pores and improve blood circulation, which will give the face a pinkish complexion.
- Add essential oils to the mask for better skin nourishment.
- Follow the procedure for applying a face mask after manicure to keep your nails clean anyway, if you use your hands, not tools.
