At our last #SpaWeekGossip tweet chat, we had a lively discussion about incorporating masks into our beauty routines. As a maskaholic of sorts, I was shocked that many women don’t take the time. Not only is masking good for your skin (it dries up acne, can moisturize and chase away fine lines) it’s essential for getting a few minutes of me time that we all need and deserve.
But what was really exciting was the loads of women who tweeted about their own beauty mask recipes – either handed down from their family or self-created. So I thought you would enjoy trying these in your own beauty test kitchen. Have fun! And if you feel like more at home beauty masks see our Pumpkin Masks article.
PS: Be sure to check out these tweeters who love spa as much as we do.
