Guess what guys, I am 31 years old. Though I may look younger (I tell everyone I’m 25) I owe it all to weekly mask rituals I took up when I turned 30. For most women healthy skin is important, for me it’s vital. As a beauty blogger I receive tons of samples, some I love and some that don’t work for my skin type. But, as of late I have been going au naturale and making my very own skincare products at home. Creating natural and homemade face mask recipes was easy, all I had to do was look in my refrigerator and cupboard. Below you will find five simple DIY recipes you can have fun making. You can even eat them!
