There are so many beauty products available in the market that claim to give us flawless skin but only sometimes do we find products that really work for us. I personally used to try a lot of commercial products for my skin care and hair care but from the past one year I have tried to switch to a more natural skin care/hair care regime and I am so glad to see the results. Products available in the market are so expensive and half of the times they do not work for us so it is a waste of money and the side effects of using chemically loaded products wreck havoc on our skin. I am using natural skin care products that I make with the ingredients available in the kitchen so I can customize them according to my skin needs. They are easy to make and they light on the pocket too and the most important part is that they work like magic on my skin.
