Face masks have been used for centuries to treat and heal various ailments. There are many different types of face masks that people use on their faces. Some of the most popular are the mud mask, wooden face mask, banana peel mask, tomato mask and the peel and stick plasterboard face mask. All of these can be purchased from health and beauty stores as well as online.
Before using any type of face mask it is very important to read the instructions on the bottle. These will help to avoid any problems with sensitive skin or allergic reactions. Most of these face masks are made from natural ingredients which are safe to use. However, if you have any pre-existing skin issues it is always a good idea to get a doctor’s opinion before attempting to use any type of product to treat your condition. Also remember to keep any medication that you are currently taking for any other medications or illnesses.
Mud masks are made by mixing clay and mud together. This mixture can then be poured onto the face to slough off dead skin cells which helps to reduce wrinkles and makes the skin appear younger and smoother. This type of mask should not be worn too long because it can cause dryness of the skin.
A wooden mask can be used to reduce redness and swelling associated with acne. A thick layer of this mask needs to be applied to the face and left for thirty minutes. After the time is up a piece of cheesecloth should be pressed across the top of the mask to remove it. A cheesecloth soaked in witch hazel can also be used to clean the mask off.
Banana peels are often used to exfoliate the face. It is best to use a cotton pad instead of a tissue to wipe away excess oil as the peel will irritate the skin. A small amount of milk should be applied to the peel prior to its application. The milk will help to soften the peel and will prevent the skin from drying out during the exfoliation process. After the peel has been applied and allowed to dry, a sheet mask should be used to moisturize the skin.
A deep cleansing mask can be used after the peel. This type of mask should contain clay extracts to remove dead skin cells and to clean pores. Aloe vera can also be used to promote the healing of the skin. The effect of these masks can be achieved by leaving the mask on the face for around fifteen minutes and then washing it off with warm water.
