Even skin labels like oily, dry and normal don’t always apply to everyone. Some people have very dry patchy skin with an oily T-zone. Others experience occasional hormonal skin changes that transform their once glowing skin into one big oil slick. So, how are you expected to keep your skin balance, while still being able to target problem zones? Here are some of the best natural DIY face masks and treatments to help you get your glow back.
