It's really essential to take care of our skin nowadays as we're so exposed to high levels of air toxins in our daily activities which cause premature ageing.
Of course, we always want to look good and have a younger looking skin. But buying lots of skin care products can be costly and inefficient. Ideally, these skin care products such as facial creams, moisturizers and facial scrubs would help fight aging and reduce wrinkles. However, there are some studies proving the most common ingredients added to commercialised beauty or skin care products can damage your skin rather than rejuvenating it to look younger than your actual age.
This could be risky for your skin if you are continuously using these types of beauty products. But there is good news. I will share with you some recipes that can be done easily in your very own home and you'll be amazed with the results.
