Face Masks

How to use a Mask

Masks are fun to use and can help clean pores, absorb oils, and give the skin a radiant glow.

  1. Wash your face. Always wash face in upward, circular motions. Always do to your neck whatever you do to your face. After washing face, remove residue with a wet cloth and splash thirteen times. Masks work best when they’re applied to clean, dry skin.
  2. Follow directions.  Don’t keep a mask on longer than suggested.  Not keeping it on long enough will be a waste of money and time.
  3. Rinse your face thoroughly with warm water after removing your mask.
  4. Follow up with your favorite toner or freshener, and then apply your moisturizer or night treatment.

Choosing a face mask:

Those of you with a normal skin, can go for a mask, once a week. For oily skin, two to three times a week is a great way to keep oil and breakouts at bay. If you have dry skin, a hydrating mask once a week can really help, but keep the deep cleansing varieties for once-a-month treatments.

Preparation & Application:

Mash the avocado very thoroughly with a fork, then stir in the remaining ingredients.  Apply quite thickly to the face and leave on for at least 10 minutes.  Wipe off with a dry muslin cloth, then rinse the cloth in warm water to remove the rest of the mask.

After such a rich mask, it is a good idea to refresh your skin with a toner, such as a rosewater toner.
