There are three types of skin types; oily, dry and normal skin type. If you are the dry face type, you will want to look for homemade face masks that will help you deal with the dryness. On the other hand, if you have oily skin look for ingredients that help you reduce the oil content in the skin.
There are many facemasks available in beauty stores, but the best face masks are the ones made at home using natural ingredients. Depending on the type of your face, there are many types of face masks to choose from. Before choosing any ingredients for your mask, the first thing is to determine your skin type.
