Apart from a moisturiser, toner and good micellar water, masks – moisturising and nourishing – also play an important role in face care. You shouldn’t pick ready-made products which are full of chemicals. Do a beautifying mask yourself at home.
You must prepare your skin before you start making your home mask. Use a face toner which effectively cleanses the skin and restores proper pH. Tie your hair back and put on a soft band.
