Tips to remember:

1.    Before applying the mask on your face, dab it on a part of your arm or leg to ensure that your skin does not react adversely to the ingredients.

2.    Brew a small cup of chamomile or fennel tea. Dip cotton wool pads into it and cover your eyes with them as you wait for the mask to dry.

3.    You must keep in mind that homemade facial masks do not contain preservatives. Therefore, it is recommended that you use up the whole of your anti-aging mask and make a fresh pack the next time you intend to use it.


For best results: Apply each mask thrice a week.
