Homemade Facial Masks

The homemade facial masks in this chapter are all made with natural food-based products that not only have benefits for the body from within, but can also benefit the body from without. Since most of these recipes use fresh food sources it is recommended that you use these masks as you make them; however, when it comes to the necessity of performing a sensitivity test on your skin it is possible to make these masks and then keep them in the refrigerator for the required twenty-four hours that it will take to fully complete the sensitivity test. When storing these masks in the refrigerator it is recommended that you store them in an airtight container such as a recycled glass jar. As with all the recipes and chapters in this book it is important and necessary to once again stress the fact that if any irritation or sensitivity occurs through use of the products that these recipes make, use of the product must be discontinued immediately; furthermore, if there is any reaction to the product or any of its ingredients that does not clear up within three days of the initial reaction, it is strongly advised that you consult your doctor or dermatologist.
