As far back as I can remember, skincare has been very important to me, and since my skin has always been very sensitive I have been making my own homemade skin masks using all natural ingredients for years. In the past, it occured to me that many of my breakouts were occuring due to the face wash, moisturizers or other skin care products I was using that were claiming to make my skin better.
The very first all natural food item I ever tried on my skin was raw oats to wash my face with and I noticed the biggest difference in my complexion. Since then, I have been making my own cleansers and masks, using items I have on hand in my fridge and pantry. If you too have sensitive skin or you just want to treat your skin to an all natural mask, keep scrolling for 5 Homemade Face Masks You Can Make With Items You Already Have.
