This is my afterwork beauty routine 1-3 times a week. My good friend travels to Japan often and I always request face masks, makeup removing wipes, lotion -- essentially anything beauty related. I find Japanese beauty regimes and products work well for me. A lot of their products contain whitening properties which I love. No, it is not because I prefer my skin be white like Sammy Sosa and them but because whitening is a much more efficient way to obtain even tones on your face.
After 15 minutes, I remove the mask and use the same mask to work in the gel residue. The key? Your neck counts as your face! Wash it when you wash your face, wipe some gel on your neck before and after completing the mask routine.
