By Kumutha

Between the rampant pollution, skin-drying air conditioner, not to mention, chemically formulated skin care products, are you really surprised your skin is frizzling out like a wilted flower? Your skin needs hydration, breathing space and intense rejuvenation, and what it needs is a herbal mask to refresh itself!

However, before we explore the herbal masks to refresh skin, there are a few things that you need to keep in mind.
