Masks are one of the ancient beautifying treatment. In old times, it was made from organic things such as Papaya, strawberry, milk, cream, oats, rose, lavender, calendula, herbs etc. The people in old times were healthier and more beautiful than us. It is not because there was no pollution in those days but they used natural stuff to enhance their beauty and eat healthy stuff.
