There are soooo many facial cleansing products and brands out there that I never know what to choose. Most facial products contain ingredients like: synthetic colors, fragrances, sulfates, and a bunch of other chemicals that I have no idea about.
With such sensitive skin, I look for products with the most natural ingredients. The downfall of this however, is the cost. Organic, all-natural products can get pricey. My recent obsession with face masks has got me thinking…and experimenting in my kitchen.
Something I love about making my own face masks is being able to mix the correct ingredients for my skin troubles. It doesn’t hurt to know exactly what is in it either!
