The best facial masks can be made at home by utilizing the ingredients in your kitchen. When you apply facial masks, you want to go from the outside in with your hands in circular motions. That way, you won’t be stretching out your skin, because if you start from your nose outward, you will be stretching out your skin. You could also use a facial brush. Apply a face mask about once a week or 2-4 times a week. It really depends on what mask you are using and your skin. You should leave your home made mask for 10-15 minutes. To get it off, I would recommend splashing your face with some warm water. Then take a steaming or cooled wash cloth and wash your face. Below are different kinds of facial masks for various skin types.
