Facial peel

We suggest using peel-off face masks as a quick fix. These are generally present in the form of a gel or paste-like substance that clings on to the skin and dries when applied. Unlike face masks that you need to wash off, these masks are intended to be peeled away from the skin. While pulling it from the skin, the mask helps to extricate impurities and grime particles from the skin’s surface. Although ingredients like glue and charcoal powder have gained fame for its use in commercial peel-off masks, it is crucial to use a natural alternative so as to prevent stripping away the natural oil from the skin. And much to your respite, you can easily use agar-agar powder as a safer alternative in these homemade facial peels.

Without wasting much time, let's embark on this journey of enhancing your beauty and improving your skin health just before the new year sets in. With a plethora of natural ingredients right in your kitchen, you can easily mix and match and make a peel-off mask suitable to your skin type.
