Since pack has been advised in many skin care directions. People will be out of place to explain how a face pack or a mask is used properly to get the maximum result. And that applies to kinds of packs and masks. The difference between a pack and a mask is that packs are normally a mixture of many ingredient, and also do not harden on the face so much as the mask. Whereas a mask can be made from one ingredient. Is applied in a thick layer, and hardens on the skin after drying both are equally effective, But generally older girls and women should use mask better results.
1 Tie your hair away from the face, and put a towel around your Neck to prevent the pack paste trickling down to your clothes.
2 Clean you face with good cleansing milk and wipe off with facial tissue.
3 How wash your face with ordinary water, and dab-dry it with a towel.
4 Apply the face cream all over the face and the Neck, and, if you have time, massage for 5 minutes. Then wipe off with a hot, wet towel and dab-dry your face a clean towel.
Your face is now ready for the pack. Apply the paste (which you have made in a clean, empty cream container or a small, clean cup). You should choose your pack after going through the beauty recipes, and find out which suits your skin as well as the climate in which you use it. Make sure that when you apply the pack you leave out the area around the eyes, lips and ears, as the pack will be of no use if applied there. Also remember to cover your neck (both in front and at the back). For the purpose of applying the pack, use either a bit of cotton-wool or a swab stick (which you can make one yourself)
It is better to lie down while the pack is drying. One should not talk, as any facial movement will stretch the skin. Besides, the pack will come off faster from around the month than the rest of the face, although this is the area which needs the pack most as pores, pimples or back heads from in this particular part of the face. So, for the best effect, lie down silently with your eyes closed. It is wonderful to relax at this time, and even doze off. It may take ten to fifteen minutes for the back to dry, depending on the types of pack you use and what the weather is like. Now remove the backs gently, keeping your eyes closed, so that pack does not get into your eyes. Then wipe off with a wet face towel in sideway directions. Do not use upward and straight movements to remove your pack. Wash your face well with plenty of water to remove every trace of pack. Dab-dry your face and Neck with a clean, soft towel. Now apply a few drops of rose water or skin tonic all over. It will be to your advantage if you do not use make up directly, for your skin with breathing freely, for some time. But if you have to go out, you could apply make-up soon after a pack.
