FACIAL MASK DESCRIPTION
The skin is by far the largest organ of the human body. It is extremely sensitive to external factors, such as ultraviolet radiation, dirt and cold weather, as well as to emotional influences like stress. All these conditions have adverse effect on skin. The good news is that most problems can be prevented by proper maintenance and care. The skin produces millions of new cells a day, regenerating itself completely within 30-40 days, depending on the person's age. Around the age of 35, however, the skin's natural rejuvenating processes begin to slow considerably. At this time, the skin can greatly benefit from a facial mask.
There are two basic types of masks: relaxing and stimulating. Relaxing masks moisturize the skin and refresh the complexion; stimulating masks promote blood flow and smooth and firm the skin.
Facial masks are more than just silly tricks that women try to get their beauty rest. They are an important part of skin care. It is recommended that you use a facial mask at least once a week. While it is not necessary to go overboard and wear one every night, a weekly facial mask session cannot only help your skin receive moisture, but it can also ease skin disorders. Facial masks can be soothing or energizing, and the actions and rituals often involved with applying a facial mask can be an effective stress reliever.
A facial mask is generally defined as a substance that is applied to the face, much like smearing on cream. It is thick, and often resembles clay. Many masks make use of clay or gel as a base, as these will stay in place when applied, and they are generally harmless to most skin types (although gel is used most for sensitive skin, as heavy clay irritate it). Masks are meant to cover the entire face and then remain in place for a few minutes before washing off. The materials in most masks are safe to be washed down the sink.
Most facial masks include both deep cleaning and moisturizing agents in the mask. This allows the pores in the face to be cleansed deeply, getting rid of oily build up and trapped dirt. This can help reduce or even prevent acne. Additionally, many masks help slough off dead skin. The dead top skin is dull and luster-less. When it is gently removed, the mask brings the top layer of dead skin cells off with it. This leaves younger, healthier cells exposed as the face's surface. This means tighter skin and a more brilliant complexion. It can also reduce the look of fine lines and small wrinkles to carry out a regular facial mask.
Another reason that facial masks are so popular involves the soothing and relaxing motions associated with applying a facial mask. If you decide to have one applied in for relaxation as well as the benefits it has for the skin on the face, then you can have a very enjoyable experience. In spas, these masks are applied with special techniques and often include a massage. You can give your own face a gentle massage just prior to applying the mask, and if you are systematic about it, you can apply the mask in a way that is singularly soothing. All masks should be applied to a freshly cleaned face, rinsed with warm water. This opens the pores and allows the mask to do its thing. Warm water is very calming and soothing, and many people find this part of the application to be one of the more enjoyable stages.
QUICK DIETARY TIPS FOR HEALTHY SKIN
When it comes to eating for beauty, the rule is: the fresher, the better. Avoid processed foods whenever possible. The fresher your foods, the more nutrient packed. Keep that in mind when planning and preparing meals. Buy what you need for a few days, not an entire week. Eat plenty of raw fresh fruits and vegetables. Cook things healthfully, eat from all food groups and vary your diet.
Fresh vegetables, are preferable to canned or frozen. Raw produce has a greater concentration of vitamins and minerals. Do not over-cook your food, if you need to cook it. All vegetables are beneficial. So, if canned is all you have then it will have to do. But remember to hit the market tomorrow. Green leafy vegetables are high in Beta Carotene which is essential for healthy hair, eyes and skin. Sprouts prevent wrinkles and age spots.
Fresh fruit are great for you any time of day. Sweeten up your breakfast, indulge in a fruity mid-day snack, have a healthy dessert. Cantaloupe is high in Vitamin A and Vitamin C, which promotes healing and controls oil on skin and scalp. Tomatoes are packed with Vitamin A (wrinkle and pimple fighter) and Beta Carotene. Citrus fruits provide great doses of Vitamin C. Again, fresh is best.
Proteins are building blocks. Turkey, chicken, fish, eggs, lean beef and soy all provide Protein and B Vitamins which support hair and nail health, and youthful skin. Prepared healthfully, they will satisfy your appetite and your form. Fish, like salmon and sardines, are full of protein and Omega-3 which promotes glowing skin.
Drink quality water. Lots of water. It purifies you all the way down to your cells, and speeds the regeneration of damaged tissue.
When you eat good foods, you are nurturing your body. When you are nurtured, you feel good. When you feel good, you smile. When you smile, you look good. So eat and enjoy your way to a healthier, happier, prettier you.

THE PROPER APPLICATION
Treat yourself to a facial mask once or twice a week. Apply a stimulating mask before going out or a relaxing mask at bedtime, and leave it on for 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the mask recipe used. Always use fresh ingredients. You can prepare the mask on demand or in advance and keep it refrigerated.
Before applying a mask, cleanse the skin with a facial toner that contains Lemon Balm or Witch Hazel.
Begin by covering the chin area with the mask in a circular motion then move up to the cheeks and forehead. Apply it to the nose next, moving outward toward the cheeks until it covers the face. Always leave space around the mouth, eyes and eyebrows. Lastly, spread it on the throat, moving from bottom to top. This is calming and stimulating at the same time. Let the mask sit on your face for 15 to 20 minutes (although some are meant to be worn all night). Many women like to lie down and relax. The effect can be enhanced by the addition of candles or incense and some soothing music. Finally, when it is time to rinse the mask, do so in cold water (or as directed with a particular recipe). This will help close the pores, protecting them against dirt and oil, and also energize your face.
Follow up with Facial Rinsing Lotions or Fresh Facial Creams.
FACIAL MASK INGREDIENTS
Many people enjoy making their own facial masks from common household products like Bananas (for wrinkles), Avocados, and Honey (antibacterial). Butter can also be used as a remedy for dry skin. Other masks can be created using different types of Clays, and different essential oils can be used for different skin types. Fruit purees also have different effects and Yogurt and Milk can soften the skin. Oatmeal is extremely soothing, and most sensitive skin types can use masks of this sort. Adding Rose Petal powder can enhance your fragrance without the need for perfume, while citrus fruit peel powder acts as an astringent.
STRAWBERRIES STIMULATE THE SKIN
Strawberries are an invaluable addition to a stimulating facial mask. They are rich in Vitamin C, which perks up tired skin, giving it a fresh, healthy look. They also contain Sulfur, which has cleansing and anti-inflammatory properties that help to remove impurities from the skin's surface and reduce redness and swelling. Strawberries gently refresh and exfoliate the skin via natural fruit acids and enzymes, producing a radiant complexion.
HONEY RELAXES THE SKIN
Because of its antibacterial action, Honey is often used in cosmetics, helping to disinfect and heal minor blemishes. Rich in natural sugars, enzymes and acids, honey is effective against inflamed and swollen skin, renewing it and promoting healing. It can also freshen dry, stressed and sensitive skin.
WHOLE-WHEAT FLOUR PROTECTS AND RENEWS SKIN
Fresh whole Wheat flour contains Vitamin E, an antioxidant that binds environmental toxins, promotes cell respiration, stimulates the production of anti-inflammatory compounds and slows the aging process of the skin. It has also been suggested that the vitamin may help to lower the risk of skin cancer. It is not surprising, then, that many suntan lotions and after-sun products contain Vitamin E. Facial masks containing flour made from whole wheat can likewise help to protect and renew the skin. Whole wheat flour, which contains extra fiber, may provide additional exfoliating benefits, sloughing off dead skin cells.
Beat one Egg white until it is frothy. Spread it all over your face. Wait until it dries. Rinse it off. It makes your face feel very clean and "tight" after this application.
The best homemade facial mask is a raw Egg yolk. Just apply the raw yolk to your face and neck for 30 minutes and rinse with cool water. Egg yolks are high in vitamin A. The mask is very effective in healing blemishes.
The cheapest and best facial mask is Oatmeal processed to a powder in the blender and either skim milk or if you are trying to fade spots lemon juice. Really works well for dry skin.
MATCHING MASK TO YOUR SKIN TYPE
For trouble-prone skin, mix oatmeal with water to form a paste. For normal to oily skin, use an egg white. For dry skin, use an egg yolk.
In all cases, spread mixture on face and allow to dry. Rinse thoroughly with cool water.
For oily skin, witch hazel makes an inexpensive toner.
For dry skin, you may want to add moisturizer while skin is still damp.
MORE FACIAL MASK CHOICES
The kind of the mask you want to use depends on your skin type.
For dry skin, try:
For oily skin:
- 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).
- Carrots (but do not use this one more than about every other week because it can over-dry your skin). This one will make you look tanned.
General refreshing masks:
- Grapes (just cut a berry in half and rub lightly).
- Strawberries (test behind your ear first, because many people are allergic to strawberries used this way even though they can eat them just fine)
- Honey and Ricotta Cheese.
- Many fruits and vegetables can also be used to good effect. Anything acidic (lemon, strawberries, etc) will tend to whiten and refresh your skin, but you need to be careful if your skin is dry.
In general, do not apply masks more often than about twice a week, and try to vary the ingredients.
SKIN TESTING FOR ALLERGIC RESPONSE
It is a good idea to test the mask first. Apply a small amount behind your ear, wait 20 minutes, then wash off. Then wait 24 hours. If the skin behind your ear is normal, then go ahead and use the mask. If you have any allergy sensitivities to any of the ingredients in your mask, do not use it.
EXTRA TIP - Try to use soft or distilled water when preparing facial masks. Hard water contains high concentrations of minerals and other substances that may provoke an allergic reaction. If you use tap water, boiling or filtering it is also a good idea.
