Get Your Self Care On: 3 Mask Recipe's to Try
Can I just say, I'm loving this whole "Self-Care" trend? I'm all for taking a day to pamper, slather on a few masks and exfoliate from head to toe — it's so incredibly important to have that "me" time. (if you can fit it into your schedule, of course)
If you find yourself at home with a few hours to spare, toss on a robe, draw yourself a bath, and try mixing up one of these DIY masks. They're incredibly simple to put together, and are easy on the wallet, too.
