What is a Facial Mask?

 

  • A facial mask improves and brightens the skin.

  • A facial mask gets rid of acne and wrinkles.

 

What is Household Gelatin?

 

According to Madehow.com, “Gelatin is a protein substance derived from collagen, a natural protein present in the tendons, ligaments, and tissues of mammals”. It comes in the form of sheets, granules, or powder.  It can be used in facial masks to make them peel off and act as sort of an adhesive.

 

What to do Before Applying your DIY Facemask

 

Always wash and cleanse your face before you apply your DIY at home facial mask so as for it to be effective. Cleansing your face daily helps moisturizes your skin and make it clear away from impurities. Do not forget to drink plenty of water daily so as to moisturize and soften your skin.

 

How to Cleanse your Skin

 

Use a cleanser of your choice to wash your face. I recommend Mary Kay Time Wise 3-In-1 Cleanser (normal/dry) which you can buy online at Amazon.com for $20.

 

My second best preference is MACMineralize Charged Water Cleanser which costs about $26.00. You can get it online at Amazon.com as well.

 

I also recommend Regenerist Luminous Brightening Cream Cleanser and costs about $9.00 online. Get it online at Amazon.com.

 

After cleansing rinse with luke warm water and dry with a dry facial cloth.Once you have cleansed your face and dried it, go on ahead and apply your DIY mask.
