4 Tips To Getting The Most Out Of Face Masks

For those of you that have been applying it wrongly.

Face masks are essential in every beauty routine. Whether homemade or store-bought, there are one of the the best things you can do to your skin. Just like every other product, there are some tips and tricks to getting the most out of the masks.

1. Paint brushes are your friend. 


For those of you that are used to applying every darn thing with your fingers - myself inclusive, you need to get yourself a small-sized paint brush to aid the application and total coverage of the mask. Plus you're not making things easier using your dirty fingers to apply it.

2. Apply masks after shower.

Yeah, we're all probably used to applying it before taking a shower. But, have you tried the other way round? After taking a shower, the steam from the warm water opens up your pores which makes it easier to receive all of the goodness from the mask.

3. Wash it out with lukewarm water.

Usually, after applying a mask, it is left to dry which of course, is stuck to our face. Using lukewarm water helps to gently lift and remove the masks without drying out or irritating the face.

4. Finish up with a toner.


We're might also be used to moisturizing right after washing off the mask. It is equally important to use a toner to lock in all of the goodies your skin might have absorbed from the mask to enable a deeper penetration. After which, you can now finish up with a moisturizer.
