It is advisable to prepare only the amount that we are going to need so that it is as fresh as possible and thus be able to take full advantage of the nutrients of the natural ingredients with which we are going to make the masks.

If we had a little left over, we could keep it in the fridge for just one more day, then we would prepare it fresh again.

It is advisable to apply exfoliating masks for normal or sensitive skin once a week, whereas for combination, oily and very oily skin we should apply them twice a week.
