Yes I’m a person that loves face masks. They just make your skin feel fresh and clean and plus its good for your skin, especially diy face masks. I have been making my own face masks for a while now and love-making them and apply it to my face and scaring my son (it’s so fun and he loves it.) 

The other reason why I love diy face mask it that you can buy all the ingredients from the supermarket and take home and make them in the comfort and privacy of your own home.

I’m going to be sharing 6 different face masks that I’ve tried and loved, they are for all skin types, so go and grab a cuppa and enjoy.

  5. I am definitely going to try this. Well except for the strawberry mask because strawberries are not easy to come by in this part of the world. Lately, I’ve been doing cinnamon face mask and it feels great.
    Thank you for sharing this.
    Cheers.
