The Problem with DIY Facials

I love magazine articles that offer lists of DIY facials meant to save you money and have you looking your best. They always leave out the life-changing aftermaths. Well worth them, I assure you, but do these at home treatments always have to smell so bad?

Instances of mother/daughter time in my childhood home are plagued by malodorous memories. Bedtime bath nightmares of beer stinging my senses while she rinsed the shampoo out of my hair. The gag reflexes I experienced as she drowned my locks in mayonnaise, and worst of all, the nasal torture of egg whites  all over my face for at least half an hour at a time. 

At the time, I thought she was crazy. And even though, late into my twenties  I still can’t fathom the idea of eating mayonnaise or drinking beer, my hair shines beyond belief and I developed a careful consideration for  skin care – okay, it’s more of an obsession.

At biorepublic.com, we’re carrying on mother’s natural face mask traditions, without the stinky side effects. Green tea masks, cucumber masks, pomegranate masks and aloe vera masks that promise not to taint your appetite.
