Face Mask Application

facial_maskYour goal of acquiring attractive personality cannot be fulfilled without having healthy skin; and for healthy skin you must use face masks helping to ensure smooth and supple skin with weekly or bi-weekly application.  Facial masks are available in the market and can also be made at home. 

Both types of facial masks give you many benefits like removal of excessive oil, minimized pores, as well as moisturizing and nourishing the skin.  The reduction in blackheads and whiteheads is the extra benefit.  But, for the best results you should know the correct way to apply a face mask.

Tips on Correct Application of a Facial Mask.

First, tie your hair or secure it away from the face.  Use a headband or tie your hair with a band or ribbon.  This will keep away hair away from the facial mask, and also provide you comfortable access to every part of your face.  Cleanse your face and neck thoroughly before application of the mask.  Rinse your face and neck with lukewarm water and then dry it with a dry towel.

The face mask should be applied only on the clean and dry areas of face and neck.  It is always recommended that you use your fingers to apply the facial mask, not an applicator.  Start applying the mask from the forehead and with gentle hands spread the mask on your cheeks, nose and chin.  Avoid applying or touching your eyes and lips while doing this.

All mask packs come with printed directions about how long they should be kept on.  By and large a mask should be kept on until it completely sets on the skin.  It is recommended that on should sit calmly and not talk or change the facial expression.  Once it is set and dried on the skin, you should rinse your face and neck with warm water.

Use a soft towel to pat your face dry and end the procedure by applying moisturizer, hydrating cream, or tonic.
