Over the past couple of years, we have become quite wise with our skincare. No more mistakes of using advertised products not keeping your skin type/condition in mind. The era of making DIY (do it yourself) also seems like history now. Ask any dermatologists, all of them are strictly against rubbing those highly acidic lemons directly on our faces. Share with me in the comments below, what stunts you used to perform on your skin in the name of DIY skincare in past.
