Face Masks Application Tips
Your skin can change with the seasons. Skin that becomes oily in the hot summer months can become drier in winter and in central heating. So take your skin's quirks into account when choosing your mask.
- Cleanse your face before applying the chosen face mask. Afterwards, rinse with warm water and than apply moisturizer.
- Most face masks should be left on the skin for between 3 and 10 minutes. For the best results, read the instructions carefully.
- If you have combination skin, use two masks - one suitable for oily skin and one for dry skin. Just apply each one to the area that needs it.

The kind of the mask you want to use depends on your skin type.
For dry skin, try these -
- an egg yolk mixed with olive oil and warmed honey
- sour cream
- plain olive oil
For oily skin, try these -
dissolve a teaspoon of baking yeast in a small amount of warm milk, wait until foamy, then apply (best done in the bath tub)
puree flesh of a tomato and mix with some potato flour to make a paste
- cucumber (it will whiten your skin)
beaten egg whites with a few drops of lemon juice (great for getting rid of blackheads)
The best face mask I have ever made involved fresh pineapple, organic oats and acacia honey. Take 3 tablespoons of oats and blend in blender until a fine powder. Add in a tablespoon of honey and three big slices of pineapple chopped into small pieces. Blend until a fine paste. Apply with a mask brush and leave for fifteen minutes - it may cause blemishes to tingle slightly but this is okay. Rinse with warm water.
Take one ripe banana. Mash 1/4 of it until creamy. Spread all over your face and leave for 15-20 min. Rinse off with lukewarm water then a dash of cold water. This will maintain your natural glow.
