Face packs for winter
This morning when I woke up and went in front of the mirror to brush my teeth, I almost had a heart attack. My face was fine (not good but okay) the last time when I saw myself in the mirror. Today when I saw it, it was dry and I almost look like the witch from Hansel and Gretel (I have a long nose). Adding to my miseries, my husband said that I do not have to do any makeup today for Halloween for a witch today as I already look like one! Hurt from this statement, I immediately started surfing the net and scanning the magazines for some packs. I am writing this hub with a grape pack applied on my face. Hope this works before evening. I had thought that I will start applying home made packs when the winter has arrived but it seems that I should had started earlier.
These masks which are applied in winter are usually water based masks or hydrating masks. These masks help in retaining the moisture of the face lost in winter. There are many masks for hydrating skin the market but I decided to try some homemade packs. To read about other home made masks, please go through these hubs written by me previously.http://dipsmi.hubpages.com/hub/face-packs-for-glowing-skin, http://dipsmi.hubpages.com/hub/glowing-skin-at-less-cost, http://dipsmi.hubpages.com/hub/How-I-did-facial-at-home
