DIY Face Masks for the Whole Family (Good for Gifts, too!)

DIY Face Masks for the Whole Family (Good for Gifts, too!) from North Carolina Lifestyle Blogger Adventures of Frugal Mom

Skincare should not only be a concern of the adults in the family. Experiencing skin issues in adulthood made us wish that we knew how to take care of our skin when we were kids. Sure, our parents and grandparents gave out tips, but we did not care, because it was no fun, and its value was not really promising at that time. Today, with our access to a lot of projects and resources to bond with our kids, why not tackle something different and explore skincare?

One of the probably easiest and most fun things to do that kids would appreciate is to make DIY masks. As a frugal mom, I make sure that I am frugal with not just money, but with time. Rather than spending up to $50 for a tub of scrubs and masks from Clarins, Skinfood, and Pixi, these masks are cheap and can be easily done within minutes. One great thing about these is these recipes only uses fruits and other ingredients that households already have, or are available in the nearest groceries. We can be sure that no harmful chemicals will be used in these masks, as we are making them ourselves. (Always be mindful, however, of your family’s allergies.).

But the best thing about these masks, for me personally, is it will help improve their curiosity and skills for science and math.
