DIY: Face Masks out of Food

by Crystal Canela

Sanitary Tip: Apply each face mask with a synthetic brush rather than using your hands. Your hands contain oils and bacteria that can clog your pores and initiate irritating acne, black heads and breakouts.

*Soak a small towel in hot water and apply it on your face for 5 minutes to open up your pores to release trapped dirt and oils. *
