Hope you all are having great weekend. Today am back with another post and this post is a DIY. Recently my skin started to remain dull and lifeless despite of following strict skin care regime. Then I changed my skin care routine with my DIY products and trust me girls, now my skin is feeling better and it is healing from the acne. Initially I don’t believe in DIY masks and skin care stuffs. Later with usage I started believing in DIY product over store bought one. First I used to run after store bought products if my skin breaks out or if my skin gets out of control. But now a days am towards DIY products whenever my skin is troublesome. OK I revamp my blabbering here, lets move to the DIY recipe.
This papaya mask consists of fruits which is extremely beneficial for dry skin. This face mask can be used by all skin types just by slightly altering the ingredient. If you suffer from dry and lifeless skin then do try this for sure.
