Supple Skin From H2T: DIY Body Masks For Skin That Glows

Don’t just focus on your face, the rest of your body needs some TLC through skincare too. It’s pretty common to skimp on body care products and steps on a daily basis.

When you make it a point to tend to your skin needs from head to toe, that’s when the real magic happens. Sure, body moisturisers, scrubs, and shower gels are essential to body care routines, but it’s also a great idea to take it up a notch with body masks.
