Rules for the preparation and use of natural masks
The first and foremost rule is that if you make masks from fruits, berries or vegetables, then you should wash them thoroughly before use. Even if during the recipe you are offered to remove the skin.
When preparing natural masks, it is not advised to use metal elements (bowls, whisks, etc.). The best material in this case is wood. You can also use ceramic or glass.
Before applying the mask, the skin must be prepared. Thorough cleaning is essential. It is advisable to carry out steaming. In this case, the pores will open, and the penetration of all beneficial substances into the deeper layers of the skin will be facilitated.
The mask is applied to the surface of the skin exclusively along the massage lines, from top to bottom. For application, it is better to use soft natural brushes, and not your own fingers. But masks should not be applied to the area around the eyes and mouth, because. in these areas the skin is very thin and sensitive. It is better to use nourishing creams or green tea lotions.
After applying the mask, it is recommended to lie down and lie down. Resting will enhance the effect of the mask.
Wash off natural masks gently, without stretching the skin. Use the water temperature indicated in the recipe. And after rinsing, it is not recommended to use any kind of cosmetics for 1.5-2 hours.
It should always be remembered that natural ingredients are always more active than those used in ready-made masks. This means that any natural masks must first be tested on a small area of \u200b\u200bthe skin and follow the reaction of the skin.
And allergy sufferers should not ignore their symptoms. If you are allergic to any element of the mask, then you should not use it. Nature gives us a lot of everything, which means you can always find an equivalent replacement for an inappropriate component.
Take advantage of nature’s gifts and let your skin shine!
