Most of us impulsively spend thousands of rupees every year getting ourselves beautified at the neighbouring salon. The need to go to an expensive salon is negated if you have the right ingredients at home.
Homemade facial masks are much better and are more natural on the skin. Different skin types can benefit from facial masks made of simple ingredients like glycerine, honey and avocado. Here are some of the top facial masks, which you can whip up right within the comfort of your home.
