Read on to know the quick and easy ways to make the most of facial masks…
Before trying out masks, we need to clear the skin surface by exfoliating. Get rid of those dead cells by applying gentle exfoliate.
💖 Wash face with warm water:
I said warm… not hot… wink Warm water will open the pores and you raise the skin’s temperature slightly. This causes blood vessels and pores to dilate in an effort to cool you down. Dermatologist suggest this because, space between the cells means there’s a greater surface area for absorption. This helps skin to absorb the product quickly.
💖 Use facial brush:
This is optional. I prefer applying using finger tips.
💖 Apply mask on Damp skin:
Damp skin acts like a sponge and it does quickly absorbs whatever comes its way. Hence, applying mask on damp skin results in a radiant skin.
💖 Leave it on your skin for good 10 minutes:
When I say good, it has to be reaaaallllly good. Do relax for this 10 minutes to calm down your skin.
💖 Wash the mask using cold water:
Cold water seal the pores. Thus locking the goodness in the skin.
