Now, steam your face for 15 minutes
When your time is up, dab your face dry with a towel and apply the masque immediately to your face and neck...never neglect your neck

You want to apply the masque in circular motions in various directions, making sure that you get the product into each pore and line in your skin
Now wait 15-20 minutes while the masque dries and hardens

*This is also a great time to apply cucumbers to your eyes to eliminate tired eyes
Now, take a small towel and get it wet with hot water. Being to wash off the masque this way, rubbing somewhat hard to make sure you get it all off
After it's all been washed away, disgard the towel and change the water to cold and instantly splash your face with cold water a few times! Pat dry with towel

Now, some frequently asked questions...
Why Purchase a Facial Steamer?
Steam helps to loosen the cellular cement that binds too many dead skin cells to the surface of skin. The steam also softens blackhead plugs so they will easily and gently release from the follicular opening. The buildup of sebum inside the follicle can then flow naturally.
Why are those two Masques recommended?
Mint julep masque is the original natural home treatment developed by a dermatologist that helps dry up acne pimples, rinse away blackheads and shrink enlarged pores. Simply apply mint julep masque to your clean face and neck. Within minutes it firms and hardens, drawing out impurities from your pores. After the masque is removed, your skin will feel clean, refreshed and smooth
Mud pack masque is the original old-fashioned, time-tested earth facial treatment with imported natural English clay that works wonders for your skin. It's not only an effective pore cleanser, but also helps tighten loose, sagging skin on your face and neck and relaxes tired facial muscles to soften lines and wrinkles. It helps you look your best and your complexion will have a clearer, smoother, more youthful looking appearance.
What is Rosewater and how will it help my skin?
Rose water is a byproduct of steam distillation, the process that's used to isolate the plant's essential oil. Some of your beauty products probably contain rose water, but you might want to consider adding a bottle of this ingredient in its pure form to your bathroom inventory, too.
One of the main benefits of rose water is that it acts as an anti-inflammatory, soothing irritated skin. Some people also use roses as a rich source of antioxidants, which can help strengthen skin cells and regenerate skin tissue. These properties, proponents believe, make rose water particularly beneficial to people with sensitive skin.
