Why I don't promote Facial Masks

I've been known to say I am not a fan of facial masks. It's not that I don't see their benefits, it's just I see more benefit in what one does daily with their skin rather than weekly. It's true when I say "it really matters what you put on your skin each day". Don't skimp on your cleanser as I can bet you it's not removed well enough which means some of it stays on your skin. So it best be good. A little tid bit, use a cotton pad dampened with water to remove your make-up and clean your skin. If the cotton is not pure white, then your skin is not cleansed yet.

But I can be reformed. The last two weeks have been stressful and I have made it a point to take a spa bath at home and put on a face mask. It does feel nice to have a mask on that smells great. As an esthetician I get it that after it dries it's over. But for that 10 minutes of tightening I feel revived. Aaahhh!

Home Recipe. Mix a tablespoon of plain yogurt, a 1/2 teaspoon of honey and add a squeeze of cucumber (you want the juice of the cucumber). This is nourishing and good for dehydrated and sensitive skin.


  1. Facial mask is the result of better treatment. It make well and effective changes of good work. It create excellence glamor.

  2. Good point and I agree. Just driving the point that more important than the weekly mask is what you do everyday.
