Masks are like a hug for your face. The can both draw impurities out and push valuable nutrients in. Plus, I think they are fun, especially when you make them from kitchen supplies. Acne, redness, dark spots, dry skin, large pores, and dull skin will all benefit from the masks below! I love DIY Skin Masks, so many different kinds to choose from!
- Before you apply a mask, wet a small wash cloth in hot water and place it over your face for a minute to open up your pores.
- Apply mask and remove with another warm wash cloth, gently.
- Splash you face with a bit of cold water to close your pores once they have received the nourishing mask. Seal all of that goodness in.
