For anyone that knows me or reads my blog, they know I'm a die-hard DIYer, especially when it comes to beauty. DIY masks, DIY hair products, and everything else under the sun! And why shouldn't I be? Instead of spending my hard earned cash on on unnecessarily expensive products that are laden with all kinds of chemicals and stuff I can't even pronounce, I'd rather make my own stuff where I know what the ingredients are and I won't be spending more than a couple of bucks! So here are my all-time favorite 4 skin-saving masks you can make at home. The beauty of this? You most likely already have ALL of this stuff in your fridge or pantry!
