It's amazing how well homemade skincare can work! I've been an esthetician/makeup artist for 9 years and have found the best results are always from natural- no junk products! And it's way cheaper! :)
Thanks Krista! Not as much as I was in the past but 1-2 times a week... it's about all I can do at the moment! :) Blogging can be a lot of work!
There are lots of really awesome ones Jean! They are all Gluten Free and there will be a blemished skin one for sure!
Thanks Dena! xo
