Simple DIY Face Masks for Radiant Skin

Feel really sluggish. And/or we don't have the desire (or the funds) to go shopping for new face masks every week. In an ideal world, we'd all be given The Light Salon's BOOST LED Mask and be able to relax on the couch like Chrissy Teigen, but the universe has other ideas!

Also, picking the right mask for your skin type can be difficult (don't worry, we have a trick that will make it seem simple). When compared to a day at the spa, simply delving into the kitchen's stash of goodies feels like a budget-friendly hack. So, if you want to pamper your skin but can't leave the comfort of your own home, try these mask recipes from food and skincare experts. Girl, get ready for a gorgeous at-home glow that money can't buy!
