The face skin should be plentifully plastered with a special separation cream, so that the dried mask can easily be removed. According to the instructions it is required to dilute the silicone (it is necessary to purchase a two-component material on a platinum base, which is harmless to the skin) and apply a thin, comfortable brush to the face. It is extremely cautious to act near the mouth, nose, eyes (they must be closed!) And eyebrows (they should also be covered). Leave the mass to solidify. After drying, the mask is uniformly superimposed divided into pieces (sliced, torn - unimportant) bandage, on top of which it is required to apply gypsum, diluted to the consistency of sour cream. Leave it to freeze for about half an hour. Then carefully take off the mold.
