HOW TO USE FACE MASK?
Prepare your face
Before you apply face mask on your face it needs to be thoroughly cleaned. First remove the makeup and dirt from the face with your face cleaner and a cotton pad. Then exfoliate the skin using scrub so that you can remove dead skin cells of it. It is also recommended to steam up your face for a few minutes so that you open the pores in order to improve the absorbing ability of the skin.
Apply the mask
The right way to apply the mask on your face is with help of soft brush or spatula. You need to apply it on the whole face in layer that is 2-3 mm thin. The mask needs to be spread on the face, neck and cleavage. Never apply face mask on the eye lids, nostrils and mouth. Never apply any kind of face mask on damaged skin. When you apply the mask you need to lay down and relax.

You need soft sponge or gauze soaked in clean water or tea. Make sure the sponge or gauze is clean. Pad the wet sponge on the face so that you soften the mask and then wipe it off the face carefully. Wipe from the center of the face outwards. Use cold water or tea to remove non oily masks, and you can remove all other masks with warm water or tea. Never reuse the sponge or gauze you clean the face mask with.
