When you are whipping up a face mask recipe at home, take note of how your skin will react to each ingredient. Do not use any foods that give you an allergic reaction upon ingesting them, because chances are, your skin will not like those ingredients either. Do not be afraid to experiment with a face mask recipe; just take note of how each product will help your skin. Before trying a face mask recipe from a book or Web site, read the product list and look for any red flags.
Recipes should explain in detail what each product is, why it is used and what benefits it has for your skin. Skip any recipe that does not list this information to avoid any bad results.
