People are always on the lookout for the latest things that will slow down their aging process and maintain their young looks for as long as they can. But why bother buying expensive creams or serums when you have nature’s treasure that you can benefit from? Here are 5 anti-aging DIY masks that you can make easily at home:
Bright as light mask
- Organic yogurt (1 tbsp)
- Freshly squeezed lemon juice (1tsp)
- Sandalwood powder (1 tbsp)
This is a super easy mask that is great for people with dull or skin or uneven skin tones. Simply mix all the ingredients together to form a paste and apply evenly all over your face.
