  1. Great suggestions, I love putting natural on my face and there is nothing better than making your own face mask for getting rid of wrinkles.

  2. I like the methods above. Lemon juice is all safe it can be used at any condition. My skin is too sensitive and dry and I use lemon juice on my face, honestly I can feel my skin smooth, glowing and fresh all the time. Lemon is a wonderful skincare remedy.

    Thanks

    1. Yes, you can use your own moisturizer. But we recommend using natural moisturizers like coconut oil, shea butter or cocoa butter.

    1. We usually recommend using fresh lemon juice as it is more effective. If fresh lemon juice is not available then you can try bottled ones.

  3. I recommend peanut butter for bad skin problems and acne. Rub it on problem areas, and leave overnite. Wash with cool water in the morning. It’s the best !
