How to Use Refining Mask How to Use Refining Mask

Overview

Refining masks shrink large pores, tightening and toning your skin to a healthy glow. You may purchase pre-made masks, make your own from a pre-mixed powder, or create your own deep-pore cleansing mask with household ingredients like yeast and lemon juice.

Apply most facial masks no more than twice weekly, especially if they contain drying agents like salicylic acid or sulfur. If you have sensitive skin, start with a five-minute application time, then slowly increase to the maximum for that product, usually 10 to 15 minutes.

Step 1

Clean your face with your favorite cleanser, then rinse. Although some refining masks may be labeled as cleansing masks, or even double as a facial cleanser when washed off immediately instead of left on your face, your skin should be clear before applying any mask treatment.

Step 2

Squeeze a small amount of the mask onto your fingers if it’s from a tube, or dip your fingers into the mask if it’s from a small jar. Start with a dime- to quarter-sized amount and add more, if necessary, to cover your face.

Step 3

Smooth the mask onto your face with circular motions. You can apply the mask only to areas you feel need the mask’s toning effects, or you can cover your entire face from hairline to chin. Don’t apply the mask around your eyes.

Step 4

Leave the mask in place for five to 15 minutes, then rinse away with warm water. Use a damp washcloth to remove any remaining traces of the mask.
