The year 2020 has got all of us stuck at home, and what’s the one thing we miss the most? It’s our pamper sessions at the salon. Having your face massaged and hair washed by the salon lady and those little chit-chat hours are moments of relaxation and also a break from the stressful life. But who says you can’t pamper your skin care at home?
In fact, the best home remedies are those that are made at home naturally and organically. DIY-ing with skincare is probably the most fun (and healthy) part of quarantining. And yes, you can achieve the salon effect (or even better) care from this. So, take some time out from your busy schedule and give time to unwind with these super cool home-remedies to add to your routine:

If you want to stick to the basics, then look onto this face mask for a rejuvenating experience. Opt for this face mask if you are too tired of the acne flaring up on your skin. Aloe vera gel is basically an all-rounder which wins all prizes for skin-related problems and is going to let your skin stay hydrated at all times.
