Why on earth would someone use homemade facial masks you ask? I can think of so many reasons it would take me days to list them all but I will just stick to the basics for now. A homemade facial mask is just that, a mask you put on your face with some purpose in mind that you make yourself, in your home, usually from ingredients you already have in your home. There are masks that do everything from clearing your skin to make you look years younger and everything in between.
I personally started using homemade facial masks last year because for whatever reason, I now have problems with acne. I had tried many over-the-counter face washes, acne treatments, and more. I have tried oil control products and none of them worked. In reality, the problem only seemed to increase. So I was low on money, tired of throwing money away on products that didn’t work and started looking on the internet for alternatives.
I found masks, peels, washes, and other remedies that I had never heard of. A year later, they are still the best way I have found to control acne and I have found so many other benefits that I would not stop using them for anything.
A mask I use as a peel uses non-flavored pectin and milk. That’s it! It really does what it says. I use it as a blackhead remover, and it leaves my skin extremely soft and clear afterward.
