    Why masks are not included here? Masks helped my skin a lot after a terrible breakout last summer. I love mixing turmeric powder and honey and put them on my face for 15 mins.

    Be careful with using any products on your face. Don’t forget to do a patch test. I bought a toner that was too strong for me, and it destroyed my face.
