8 Easy DIY Face Masks

Yesterday, I shared with you 4 Essential Recipes for Problem Hair. Today, I’m sharing a few of my favorite DIY Face Masks that are sure to keep your complexion well nourished and promote a youthful radiance. Like any new skin treatment, results are not always immediate. It may take several applications and regular use to see lasting results.

FACIAL TREATMENTS:

When it comes to skin restoration, rejuvenation and moisture, there are two key ingredients to keep in mind – avocado and papaya. The avocado is a hydration miracle and great for sensitive skin. The papaya is a super fruit wonder (aka miracle worker) that works to naturally exfoliate. It’s rich in alpha-hydroxy acids, beta-carotene and Vitamin C for firmer, more elastic and younger-looking skin. Most of the facial treatments below contain these ingredients.
