I’m one of those girls that other girls love to hate. Or at least my skin is. When I was a teenager, I never understood the agony of pimples, whiteheads, blackheads or other skin problems.
But when I grew older, one by one, they came. I don’t really wanna be as stressed about it but I researched on ways to prevent them. While there’s a lot of options to have it checked by a dermatologist, treatments and products that promise appealing quick fixes are so far beyond my beauty budget.
But you see, you don’t really need to spend a lot of money just to have a smooth and flawless skin. Availing different kinds of treatments and beauty products to make your skin look healthier and younger is very expensive, especially if your budget is only limited. Why spend thousands of pesos in conventional beauty enhancement regimen when you can pamper yourself with natural skin care treatments at the comfort of your home?

If you are one of my peeps who enjoy using natural concoctions as an alternative for expensive facial treatments and products, then homemade skin care is a perfect beauty option for you.

It is also actually fun doing this type of beauty regimen, especially if you try it with friends.
