Very simple and effective lifting mask can be made by using agar and Marshmallow (Althaea officinalis) root extract.
Agar comes from Gracilaria or Gelidium algae and in a commercial form (E 406) is used in production of confectioneries and as jellying agent in food production.
Granulated agar has no smell and can be dissolved in boiling water. Solution becomes jelly in 40-50 °C. Marshmallow is beneficial in treating skin infections and when combined together with agar the very efficient lifting mask can be made. Occasional use of the mask has micro-massage effect but with the regular use the skin look is substantially improved and face contour is corrected.
