Long lasting treatments? There are a lot of treatments available on the market which are considered quick fixes. They don’t have a permanent or lasting effect and although they make a little bit of difference at first, soon your skin goes back to its original state. Think about the face mask you bought and tried once. Your skin might have had a quick ‘perk up’ but it most likely went back to feeling how it was maybe days or even hours later. The...
