A facial mask creates a cocoon for the entire face, neck, decollete, and sometimes the eyes. The soft easily spreadable paste should be applied totally covering all skin, creating an occlusive barrier that prevents any exchange between the skin and air. This will create a "suffocation" effect whereby the nerve endings in the skin tissue send a message to the brain that says "help." The brain responds by directing the lymphatic system to send excess blood serum to the skin. This serum contains lymph fluid and white blood cells (lymphocytes). As the lymph makes its way to the surface, it picks up excess moisture within the tissue and carries it up to the surface as well. At the same time, the eccrine gland is stimulated to excrete the extra waste products that have accumulated to fight off the "invading" mask. That is why we say that "masking activates the body’s own self cleansing mechanism" and detoxifies the skin. Nutrients are absorbed and carried deeper into the epidermal tissues due to the increased circulation. Especially if organic raw fruits and vegetables are pureed and blended into the masks.
This is the ideal time to apply a treatment serum, under the mask, that will be forced deeper into the skin with the action of the mask. Revitalizes and refreshes tired looking skin...especially suited just before special occasions as a 'beauty flash' treatment.
