1. Access Your Skin: Determine what the result you want after masking your face. Ask yourself a few questions below:
Do you want to hydrate your skin or to clear up oil?
Are you aiming to get rid of breakouts?
Are you looking for an anti-aging product?
Once you know what kind of mask you suits you best, you can find, or make, the right product.
2. Prepare Your Mask: It is fine to use either homemade mask or store-bought mask. If you plan to use a homemade mask, always gather all of your ingredients and follow the recipe. However, if you prefer a store-bought mask, read instructions and follow them. Keep all of these things in the refrigerator until you are ready to use them.
3. Get a Brush and a Washcloth: Face masks are best applied with a paintbrush (normally used for art making). Invest in a brush for your own good and make sure that you clean it when you are done. A washcloth is also needed.
4. Wash Your Face: Use warm water and your favorite facial cleanser, remove your makeup, dirt, and oil. Moisturizer should not be applied.
5. Exfoliate: It is a good idea to scrub your face before you apply your mask. Apply the product to wet skin, gently scrub, and rinse with warm water.
6. Open Your Pores: Take a washcloth and dip it in hot water (as hot as your face can bear) and cover it on your face until it cools off. Another option is to hold your face over a bowl of steaming water for 1-2 minutes.
7. Apply the Mask: Use a paintbrush to apply the mask evenly on your face. If you do not have a brush, make sure your hands are clean before applying the mask.
8. Remove the Mask: Use warm water and a washcloth to gently remove the mask
9. Follow with a Toner and Moisturizer: Apply toner to your face and neck because it shrinks your pores and locks in the benefits of your mask. At last, apply a bit of your favorite moisturizer.
