Let's face it sometimes getting your face mask to come together may be hard, especially if it is your first one. You will learn how to mix and apply your face mask like a pro! Take a deep breath, relax and enjoy the whole experience from beginning to end. Gather your supplies, light a few candles, turn on calming music and let us begin.
Supplies you will need:
- Small ceramic or glass bowl: Avoid using stainless steel or plastic.
- Bamboo Wooden Spoon
- Liquid of Choice:
- Warm Distilled Water
- Green Tea
- White Tea
- Aloe Vera
- Flower Hydrosol
- Your favorite MotherEarth Inc. Face Mask
- Clean Hands!
Scoop two spoonfuls of your powered face mask into your bowl.
Add equal parts of your liquid choice to the bowl. This is the fun part, creating face mask with new liquid choices if you want to of course! Try using more then one liquid option.
Stir with spoon until blended together. If the mask is too thick slowly add more liquid, stirring after each time. If the mask is too runny slowly add more powder face mask. You can create the consistency to your preferred texture.
You can use your fingertips; that is what I use, or a face mask brush. There is no right or wrong way.
Begin applying to your dirty face (washing before and after a face mask can cause dryness). Work in an upwards motion covering your entire face with an even layer avoiding your eyes and lips. Don't forget about your neck!
Allow your face mask to rest on your face for about 10-15 minutes or until almost dry. You don't have to lay down while it dries, yes I know that would be nice, but I also know reality! While it is drying, continue on with life, fold some laundry, do the dishes, change a diaper, go outside and scare your neighbors lol whatever you choose just have fun! You don't want to allow the mask to dry completely and become stiff and hard. IMPORTANT: Always dampen your clay face mask with a damp washcloth or face sponge before removing so that you do not cause accidental harm to your skin.
Once your face mask is removed continue your skin care routine. Use a face mask 1-2 times a week. Listen to your skin, if two times a week is causing dryness, just use once a week! You know your skin the best so always always take a moment to listen to it! Take a moment to admire your gorgeous skin and know you are now a pro at mixing and apply any face mask that is thrown your way!
