3 Must Make Body Masks At Home
Face masks are widely used but how many of you use body masks? Different body masks serve different purposes but one common result is smooth and radiant skin. I have used coffee body mask and loved the results. These body masks have some granular particles that slough off any rough and dead skin. Your skin will become really silky even after a single body mask session.
Though you can get body masks at spas, they are cheaper at home. Take a little time to whip up a body mask and pamper yourself in the shower. You will use them again and again as you will get addicted to new found smoothness of your skin. Try these recipes to make body masks at home-
