Don’t we all want flawless, radiant and glowing skin? I for one spend a lot of time and money trying to get my skin in good form! I was reading an article in the Independent the other day, and came across a staggering study…did you know that the average women spends around £100,000 on skincare and cosmetics in her lifetime!
The lengths we women will go though to look good. A few days later (as I sat on my sofa drinking my chamomile tea, out of my fave Starbucks mug) I had a moment of realisation. We don’t even know half the ingredients that go into the stuff we buy, and the other half is all natural ingredients that we can find in our cupboards at home!
Why do us women spend all this money on chemically altered cosmetics, trying to get radiant and glowing skin, when we can do it ourselves at home – using natural ingredients that costs less then your regular Starbucks coffee. On that note I have put together my top ‘tried and tested’ home made face masks that will give you radiant and glowing skin in no time. Enjoy!
