  6. It is advisable to alternate home remedies to complexly affect the epidermis and not to become addictive.
  7. If burning, redness, swelling occurs during procedures, immediately discontinue the healing process and wash your face with boiled cold water.
  8. To protect yourself from an allergic reaction to the skin, before applying masks, lotions should be applied a little product on the wrist. If there are no unpleasant manifestations within 15 to 20 minutes, the remedy can be used.
