BEAUTY - Face Packs or Face Masks
 
Use of Face Packs or Face Masks is considered as third step of skin care routine and final step in Cleansing. Face Masks are an ideal way to remove dead cells on the surface of the epidermis. A good face mask should rejuvenate the skin by restoring the pH values, removing excessive oil content, dirt and providing a balancing effect to dry skin. Face Packs stimulate the blood circulation, energize the muscles, open the pores and maintain elasticity of the skin. Face packs and masks are prepared with same ingredients with little variation in quantity and density. Face packs are more porous and softer than the face masks.
 
 
Apply the Face packs by fingertips and spread gently over face and neck leaving the area around eyes and mouth. Place cotton pads soaked in cucumber or potato juice or in rose water and lie down till the face pack dries. Avoid talking or smiling and allow drying the pack, 10-15 minutes. Then wash the face with lukewarm water and apply a thin layer of moisturizer or a cold cream.

Masks are more effective after a steam facial.
