Whenever you apply a mask on your face, you have to moisturize it right after taking the mask off. These masks are very effective, if you don’t see results on your first application, do not panic, apply the mask three to four times a week and you will see the desired results. It is important to remember that it may take one month for you to completely get rid of all the facial hair, so don’t give up on these masks if you don’t see results right away. This procedure takes time, and if you only do it in one week and quit, that facial hair will return. Even when you get rid of facial hair I recommend to keep using these masks at least once in two weeks so you can eliminate any chance of facial hair growing again.
