You Don’t Have to Be an Expert to Do Face Masks!

esthetics schoolFace masks and face packs are an inexpensive way to pamper yourself. Many people think they know the right way to apply a proper face mask treatment, but there are a few tips that can help you do it exactly like the pros.

Whether your face mask is store bought or homemade, they may seem pretty straightforward to apply. After you smooth the mask onto your face, you let it sit for a period of time and then rinse it off, but knowing a few tricks and tips can make all the difference in the world.

You should wear clothing items that your aren’t afraid to get a little messy, as facial masks can stain clothing fabrics. The bathroom is the ideal place to apply your face mask, since any mess left in there can be cleaned up relatively easy. You should also pull your hair back with a hair band to prevent messing it up.

Wash Your Face with a Cleanser

This is an important step, as you need to remove any dirt, makeup, and oils. Washing your face with warm water also helps to open up your pores.

Steam Your Face to Open Pores

You can do this by simply standing over a bowl of boiling hot water with a towel draped over your head so that your face catches the rising steam. You could also perform this task by applying a warm wash cloth directly to your face.

Apply Your Facial Mask

After you have emptied the contents of the mask into a large bowl, clean your hands and gently pat the mask onto your face. Keep the mask away from your lips and eyes and wash your hands again after applying the face mask.

Relax and Wait

A general rule of thumb is to leave the mask on for about 15 to 20 minutes. But your package should have a more definite timeline.

Remove the Facial Mask

Using warm water, remove the entire mask from your face and then switch to cold water so that you can pat your face and close your pores, sealing in the mask properly.

In no time, you can begin applying expert facial masks for a fraction of the price that local salons charge. Use these tips and you will have the best looking skin imaginable.
