For example the remedies made with lemon or green apple are perfect for oily or mixed skin, while the dry or wrinkled will be better off with avocado.
Before using any of your concoctions run a simple allergy test: apply the ready mask on a piece of skin which is not really visible. This way you will discover which ingredients are fine for you without getting blotchy patches or skin rush on your face. Best place to test is the inside of the forearm, just above the wrists or behind your ear.
