Why Use Homemade Facials?

Homemade recipes using natural ingredients from your own kitchen contain antioxidants, vitamins, enzymes, and minerals that you'll never find in store bought facials.

Remember to leave the facial mixture on your face for a least 5-10 for best results.

Some of these recipes can be a little runny - so wrap a towel around your neck and make sure to wear an old t-shirt.

In fact, this would be a good time to sit back, put your feet up, and let your complexion soak in the nutrients.
