    Is Sesame seed oil ok to use instead of almond oil when making the pickpea face mask?

  2. I’m assuming long grain rice is best to use, however is one type better, such as organic, or natural. Can you suggest brands?

  3. Wow,I just tried the Okra Face Mask and my face feels wonderful.! AND yes I can see a difference in fine lines after one time. Now how often can I use this safely ? Don’t want to overdo a good thing.
