What is the best way to preserve homemade beauty products: masks, creams, scrubs?
For all the at home remedies I make I keep them sealed in air-tight jars. Anything which is perishable should by kept in the refrigerator. All other items should be stored in a cool, dark place. For items such as masks, creams, etc. consider making only small amounts on a weekly or bi-weekly basis in order to be sure that they don't spoil.
Puncture a vitamin E gel pill with a straight pin and add to your product. Depending on the amount of product you may need two or three.
