Instead of buying a "one-size-fits-all" product, customize your face mask to meet your skin's current needs. Maybe you want to exfoliate your skin, or hydrate it, or minimize oil production. You can combine real foods together into a face mask that fights for your skin's "best self." And, best of all, I bet you have already have all (or almost all) of the ingredients in your kitchen!

Look through the following five face mask recipes and choose the one that fits what you are looking for.

Enjoy the glow!
