* I call the time we have to enjoy our home-made masks  – facial meditation. There are a lot of variations of basic meditation. One of them suggests sitting or lying down doing nothing, but being aware of our breathing. Just sit or lie still with your mask on inhaling slowly through your nose, then exhaling through your mouth. Enjoy taking care of yourself, enjoy your facial meditation time.
