How to Apply a Facial Mask


Facial masks are very important if you want clean, toned and smooth face skin. You can choose from a wide variety of masks, which can be found in the supermarket or prepare your own – this is up to you. However, what`s important to know is how to apply it properly.

Every girl does that at least once a year – no matter if she needs it or just our of curiosity to try a new product. These are 6 steps, which will make the procedure, easier, quicker and more effective. Follow them and you won`t regret it.

1. Mind the mess

We recommend to wear old clothes, as sometimes spots are difficult to wash. Prepare a towel handy, too. In order to make less mess, simply apply the mask at the bathroom.

2.Start with a clean face

Your skin should be clean if you want to have an effect. That`s why it is recommended to wash your face, using a cleanser before applying the mask. It will remove any dirt of oil. Wash, using warm water to open the pores. This way, you`ll enjoy all the benefits a mask could bring!

3.Open pores

Sometimes, just washing your face with warm water is not enough, that`s why we recommend using steam . You need to boil some water and pour it in a bowl. Then bend over the bowl and cover your head with a towel. Stay like this for about 5 minutes. Another great way to open the pores is to put a cloth soaked in warm water directly onto your face. Both ways are a good base for a facial mask.

4.Apply the mask

Finally the time has come. First – wash your hands, always apply facial mask with clean hands. Gently take a small amount of the mask and apply it onto the face, avoiding the lips and the eye area (unless otherwise stated). Don`t rub too intensely, cover the whole face, using as much scrub as necessary.

5. Wait patiently

In order for the mask to take an effect … wait patiently, following the directions, written on the package. We know you are impatient to see the result as soon as possible, but that`s not the right approach in this case. So, wait patiently – check your e-mail, call a friend, read a book, or simply look through the other articles on this website.

6.Wash off

Usually after 15-20 minutes, you`ll need to remove the mask. Wash it off, using warm water. Make sure everything is removed and then rinse with cold water to close the pores. You may notice there is a difference … enjoy it!

As you can see properly applying facial mask is neither difficult, nor time consuming. It is great for your skin and it seems you should do it regularly!
