National Mud Pack Day takes place on September 30, 2014. A mud pack is an application of mud to the skin of the face for cosmetic purposes. The perceived effects of a facial mask treatment include revitalizing, healing, or refreshing; and, may yield temporary or long-term benefits depending on environmental, dietary, and other skincare factors.
Masks are removed by either rinsing the face with water, wiping if off with a damp cloth, or peeling off of the face by hand. Duration for wearing a mask varies with the type of mask, and manufacturer's usage instructions. The time can range from a few minutes to overnight. Those with sensitive skin are advised to first test out the mask on a small portion of the skin, in order to check for any irritations. (With material from: Wikipedia)
