Rules of sea buckthorn masks
- The action of masks from "Siberian pineapple" can be slightly weakened to reduce the risk of allergic reactions and skin coloring. To do this, it is enough to freeze the berries.
- Before mixing the mask, the frozen berries are doused with boiling water. It is interesting that in the sea-buckthorn there is no enzyme that destroys vitamin C. Therefore, the flesh of the berries can be safely steamed with hot water.

- Before the procedure, the face is cleaned and steamed.
