Great Skin Care In A Hurry
You don’t always have time to spend an hour or more giving yourself a skin treatment, but that shouldn’t stop you. These masks can all be used for a facial that takes a grand total of fifteen minutes from start to finish.
The How To Part
First, cleanse your face, neck and decollete. Use a skin-type appropriate scrub. Rinse.
Soak a towel in comfortably hot water and apply to your skin for one minute timed.
Next prepare and apply any of the masks listed below – they all stay on for just 5 to 10 minutes.
Rinse again and apply your usual toner, serum and moisturizer.
Note – Some of these facials require either time in the refrigerator or sitting time. Read each facial recipe through first and if your time is very limited stay with the ones that require the shortest amount of time to make.
