Although they are natural ingredients and that we find in the supermarket, it is always good to do skin tests to avoid irritation and obviously avoid ingredients to which you are allergic.
Then avoid applying the DIY masks too close to the eye contour and, if you use lemon , remember not to expose yourself to the sunand to apply a sunscreen cream, because the citric acid contained inside could stain the face, being photosensitizing.
Before making a mask, remember to open the pores well with a warm cloth and make a light scrub , also made at home with honey and white sugar, thinner and less aggressive. This will prepare the skin for the application of the mask.
Always remove it with warm water and then proceed with a complete skincare routine to enhance its benefits. Repeat the application at least once a week, also alternating the various types to obtain different results.
