Hope you liked them


  1. What are the benefits of the masks towards the skin ? just curious . glad there are "recipes" for face masks that don't include much to many steps and other ingredients .

    1. Well to begin with anything natural is better than the chemicals also in the long run they will keep your skin healthy and spotless.. Many of these ingredients are even used in saloon's these day's the difference is they rip you off with a fancy name. They give a natural glow to your skin ..

  2. Is it ok to do these right after each other? Like once you do the grape thing do the say yogurt one right after?

  3. I would suggest give some gap between if you are doing multiple of them to give your skin some time to absorb and then go for another. I do it in a gap of around 4 hours.
