There are many ways to get the perfect DIY mask, but you need to make sure that you’re not overdoing it.

Let’s start things off with a lemon face-mask

Lemon and Yogurt are the perfect combinations when it comes to getting that great DIY feel. They combine together to create an active citric acid environment that cleans out a lot of the gunk on your face. Plus, it’s easy to make and takes hardly a few minutes to mix and apply.

How do you do it? It’s simple. Mix lemon juice, yogurt and squeeze fresh lemons in a bowl. Make sure that it’s got a consistent feel to it. Next, you need to apply the paste on your face and cover all areas that you need to. Leave it on for 5-6 minutes and you’re ready.
