Try a Honey Face Mask

If you are looking for the perfect at home facial, then look no further. As there are some fantastic natural products that will work wonders for your skin, lying around in your kitchen already.

 

Honey is the star of the show!. It is wonderful for the skin as it contains anti-inflammatory properties, is naturally antibacterial and deeply nourishes the skin by calming and moisturising. Try using a ‘raw’ honey to maximise results.

Honey can be used to wash your face, as part of a scrub or as a luxurious face mask. See below 3 different honey face masks for your skin type.

 

Honey Face Mask for Acne Prone Skin

  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

Honey Face Mask for Dry Skin

  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ¼ avocado, mashed
  • 1 tablespoon ground almonds

Honey Face Mask for Sensitive Skin

  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon matcha powder (green tea leaves)
  • 1 teaspoon sweet almond or jojoba oil

Once you’ve decided on your preferred mask combine all ingredients together and mix well. Start with clean skin and before applying the mask, lay a warm face cloth on your face to open up those pores. Apply the mask and leave on for 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water to remove the mask and then rinse again with cold water or a toner to close the pores. Now use a good facial oil to lock in all the moisture.

Important – Please be aware that allergic reactions are possible, especially if you already have allergies to bees or pollen. We recommend always doing a patch test first, apply a small amount on your neck and let sit for a few minutes, and then remove to see how your skin will react before going on to the rest of your face.
