It is also not recommended to use this mask if there are areas burned, bruised, irritated or with deeper spots. This type of skin can cause a harmful reaction making it even worse. It cannot be applied to eyelids or lips, so if this happens, it will be necessary to wash the affected area with plenty of water immediately.
