How to Use a Peel-Off Mask
Just like the right ingredients are important in peel-off masks, using the mask in the correct manner is key to getting the expected results.
- Cleanse your face with an astringent or rose water, then rinse it with cool water.
- Steam your face for 5 minutes to help open the pores, then gently pat dry the skin with a soft towel.
- Apply a thick layer of the homemade mask evenly across your face, but be careful to avoid your mouth, eyes and eyebrows.
- Allow the mask to dry for 20 to 30 minutes.
- Once the mask is dry, start peeling it off in layers. Always peel it off against the direction of your hair growth.
- Wash your face with warm water to remove the remaining mask.
- Finally, rinse your face with cold water to close the opened pores.
- Pat dry your face and apply a light moisturizer.
- Before using a peel-off mask, it is recommended to tie back your hair so it doesn’t get stuck in the mask.
- Always apply the mask using a brush. Using your fingers will be too messy.
- After applying the mask, avoid talking or moving your head. Try to sit still and watch television or read a book.
- Do not rub your skin while removing the mask, if it doesn’t come off in one layer. Just keeping peeling off the layers.
- Do not use peel-off masks daily. Use them only once or twice a week.
