Keeping a healthy and glowing skin doesn't mean spending exorbitant amounts for a variety of skin care products, which may or may not work for you. Unfortunately, finding a product that matches your skin can be a hit or miss — either a toner dries out your skin, a moisturizer makes you oily, or a facial wash results in breakouts.
It can be very wasteful in the long run, don't you think? Good thing, essential oils works as skin care products too. Using different oils, you can create your wash, toner, and moisturizer.
Check out our awesome recipe for an overnight facial moisturizer.
