Lotions, containing natural juices, infusions and decoctions, clean, whiten and nourish skin like any creams or masks. But what is the special feature of lotions? Thanking their liquid consistence, lotions work faster and get into skin easier.
Homemade lotions are easy to make. You can make them a little at a time or prepare for future use. Why should we make them in autumn? Nature presents us her lavish gifts and we should use them in time.
