Best Homemade Masks to Make at Home
Updated: Feb 23, 2020
I personally love homemade mask because it not only saves you money but you know what you're putting on your face. Some ingredients found in mask can cause irritation and some dermatologist suggest not to use face mask unless you know exactly what ingredients are in the mask. When it comes to making masks at home there's things that are okay to put on your face and things you should not put on your face.
Some people think that it's okay to put pure lemon on their faces, but that's not the case. In fact it can cause more damage to your skin because it's too acidic. Lemon, lime and baking soda should not be used alone, it should always be mixed with another ingredient that is not as strong or acidic.
Turmeric is another ingredient to look out for. In my opinion it's better to add it to your tea or
food rather than applying it to your face because turmeric does stain the skin temporarily, but you don't want to take any chances, do you? Cinnamon is another spice that shouldn't go on your face, if you have used it before, you would know it burns your face, you may think it just feels like it's burning, but it's actually burning your skin and that can also damage your skin as well.
Below are 2 most common and safe homemade face mask recipes that doesn't harm your skin.
