DIY (Do-It-Yourself) is the “in-thing” which is taking over the world at the moment. Many people find themselves watching various diy videos online just to avoid extra expenses. “Of course, why spend a thousand bucks when I’ve got all necessary ingredients in my kitchen?” is what we find ourselves saying these days.

Don’t get it wrong, DIY is really good and creative but there should be a limit to the practice especially when it’s got everything to do with your skin. Many people have tried certain DIYs for their skin treatment and it worked (lucky folks), some tried and there was no “result”, while others tried and everything just went WRONG!
