How to Use Face Masks?

- Remove make-up
- Cleanse 
- Apply mask
- Leave on
- Rinse off
- Apply moisturiser 


How often?:

It would depend on the type of masks, but I would say once a week (always read instructions and go by the directions advised)

Expert Tips: 

- Exfoliate prior to applying masks, as it can help your mask penetrate better (not exfoliating masks - AHA's or Retinol based)
- Put it in the fridge for a few hours before applying, especially sheet masks 
- With some hydrating masks  it is nice to leave on over night and wash it off in the morning
