      Thomas, typically a face mask is applied once a week. Some are applied up to, but no more than, twice a week. It depends on what kind of mask you use and on your skin condition. Hope this helps! :)

      I will love to mix the Egg white and avocado face mask. But I want to know how often I should use it. Also is the mixture for just one day?

    Avocado most certainly hydrates and moisturizes dry skin. I use natural ant-ageing creams and serums by mama nature of london. They contain avocado oil and they are all the rage in Beverly Hills at the moment. They are hand made in London and I have not came across better anti-wrinkle creams.

    My face broke out into a rash that lasted several weeks. At one point it even turned purple.
    I would not try these masks. They are evil.

      Do you mind stating which mask you used? Maybe you’re simply allergic to one of the products you used and thus the rash. These are all natural products, so that’s the only thing that would have caused a rash.

      cleaners do both. And no mattre how much we try to clean our face and pvreent gunk, it’ll come back do you have an oily face? Just asking. If you do it’s good to use an astringent. It’s really strong, but it works.
