DIY: SKINCARE MASKS FOR THE 3 MOST COMMON SKINCARE CONCERNS

Oh, face masks, let us count the ways we love thee: 1. in sheet form, 2. in splash form, 3. in clay form, and now we're adding 4. in DIY form, because, let's be honest—we're sometimes lazy. Really lazy. And/or we don't have the desire (or the money) to run to the store every week for new face masks. In a perfect world, we would all be given The Light Salon's BOOST LED Mask and just chill on the couch in bliss like Chrissy Teigen, but the universe has other plans for us!
Also, choosing a mask for your skin type can be a trip (don't worry, we have a hack for you that will make it seem like a breeze). By comparison, the idea of just delving into the stash of goodies in the kitchen makes this budget-friendly hack feels like a day at the spa. So when you want to give your skin some TLC, but can't bring yourself to leave the vicinity of your humble abode, try these mask recipes that come courtesy of food and skincare experts. Get ready for a beautiful at-home glow money can't buy, girl!
