How to Do an At Home Facial Mask

When you’re following a DIY face mask recipe, there are a few key tips you need to consider.

  • If you have sensitive skin, the American Academy of Dermatology suggests testing a small amount of any new product on your forearm to make sure it doesn’t irritate your skin.
  • Avoid using any ingredients that may cause an allergic reaction.
  • Be gentle when applying an exfoliating scrub.
