Background of the Study
John Keats says that, “a thing of beauty is a joy forever.” Human, in nature, is vain in all aspects, especially in the physical component. We try different things and means in order to maintain, enhance and preserve beauty.
Nowadays, people value physical beauty more than attitudes, character, and even education. For they have different perspectives regarding the importance of it. For some, they consider it as an edge among others. To some, it is an asset that lifts up their self-confidence and self-value. While for others, it is their means of living.
There are two ways to improve oneself: first, through the natural means and the other through artificial ways. According to Dumlao (2008), she stated that facials here in the Philippines are not done in the dermatologists’ clinics rather in the beauty salons. For the latter sprouted like bushes often offer affordable skin and facial treatment services.
Moreover, Dr. Grace Beltran, a dermatologist at St. Luke's Hospital, encourages Filipinos to go to a dermatologist for their needs, just to make sure they are really getting their money's worth and are not exposing themselves to unnecessary risks for facials can also lead to life-threatening conditions like meningitis if not done properly.
Although through surgeries, one could easily enhance your beauty, but it is very risky in terms of our health. But through using natural method, it is practical, less-risky and natural. Thus, these are the reasons why I came up with this study.

Definition of Terms
For clarity and better understanding of this study, the following terms were conceptually and operationally defined: Gelatin --is a translucent, colorless, brittle (when dry), flavorless solid substance, derived from the collagen inside animals' skin and bones. It is commonly used as a gelling agent in food, pharmaceuticals, photography, and cosmetic manufacturing (Wikipedia, 2011). In this study, “gelatin” referred to the substance being studied.
Facial Mask, is a creamy paste (or gel) applied to the entire, already-cleansed face. It often contains minerals, vitamins, essential oils, and/or fruit extracts (e.g., cactus, cucumber, etc.)(Wikipedia, 2011).
In this study, “facial mask” referred to the paste applied on the face that is being studied.
