I have been wondering when the best time to apply a facial mask would be. I am sure many of you wonder the same thing and a search of the internet shows people are clearly divided.
Some people think you should apply a mask before you clean your face and others believe you should apply the mask after you clean.
Those in the Mask First-Wash Second camp say you should apply the mask first because then your cleansing routine will wash off all traces of the mask.
Those in the Wash First- Mask Second camp say you should apply the mask to clean skin so it can have the full effect.
I personally believe in Wash First-Mask Second because I agree that the mask needs to sit on your clean skin to give the most benefit.
Personally I am currently using the Freeman Pineapple enzyme mask which is also a mild exfoliator. I wash my face with my cleanser first and then when the skin is nice and clean I will apply the mask in a circular motion.
I then let it sit for about 7 minutes so it can dry a little...then moisten my fingers and resume the circular scrubbing motion before washing off.
How do you apply your mask?
