The wonders of apricots

Looking youthful and beautiful is important to many women. We all invest in many cosmetic products that “promise” to keep us looking fresh and youthful. Unfortunately a vast majority of these products cause more harm than good. Many of them create dependency, therefore once you stop using them your skin will go back to that previous stage or its condition many times even worsens. In other cases significant results don’t even show, yet we spend a lot of time and money trying to find the miracle solution. After speaking with many renowned estheticians as well as doing some research, I have concluded that natural, home-made treatments are more beneficial towards your skin, as well as the results show faster.

As it is summer, I would like to share with you a recipe I have recently discovered: home-made apricot masks! These masks can be made and altered for your specific type of skin: normal, dry, oily, etc.

Let’s get started!
