    Theses are lovely ways recipes. as the author of Natural homemade Skin Care Recipes I make lots of recipes like these, most people don’t know what and how many oils and other ingredients are loaded with essential fatty acids that help nutrients penetrate skin so they can repair nourish and hydrate skin. They can even stimulate cell and collagen promotion.

    Can these “recipes” be stored in jars for future use, or do they go bad right away?


  8. Vanessa @ Green Global Travel — June 6, 2014 @ 2:53 pm (#)

    Thanks for compiling this list of natural mask recipes! I’ve tried one with avocado before, and that made my face feel super soft. These always end up being way better than the ones in the store that dry your skin out!
