2. Description of Related Art

Men and women are constantly looking for the latest and greatest in skin care and skin rejuvenation. The current market offers creams, lotions, injectables, pills and serums all offering to rewind the hands of time and give a user fresher younger looking skin. Along with the wide range of application methods are an even larger variety of ingredients. Everything from seaweed to placentas are offered as the key ingredient to these various facial treatments. While many of the products do help a person look and feel younger, people are always researching and looking to create the most perfect skin regimen.

Some problems with the current skin treatments, besides not working, are that they may be greasy, thin or difficult to use. Most people do not enjoy spending large amounts of time with creams on their face, keeping them away from enjoying their daily lives. With the busy lifestyles of many individuals, waiting for a facial mask to take effect and them be removed is considered an inconvenience. Also, there are very few products which can be worn easily under makeup without leaving the face feeling greasy or prohibiting proper makeup application. Most leave-on treatments do not allow the person to both treat their skin and wear makeup at the same time.

It would be desirable to have a facial treatment which can be absorbed into the facial skin while providing skin rejuvenation and refreshment. It would also be beneficial to have a facial treatment which may put on before applying makeup and it will not cause the makeup to smear or come off.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The present relates to an absorbent face mask to cover and hide any skin imperfections a person has on their face. The mask is put on the face and absorbed to serve as a primer before the person applies their makeup. The absorbent mask prevents the makeup from getting into the lines and creases on the surface of the wearer's skin, while simultaneously providing a beneficial skin treatment.

The absorbent face mask comprises a forehead cover, a chin cover, a set of cheek covers, a pair of eye holes, a set of nostril holes, a mouth hole; and a plurality of ingredients wherein the plurality of ingredients hold together to create the absorbent face mask which is absorbed into an outer layer of skin of a wearer as a primer before the wearer applies a layer of makeup.
