Honey face


It is renowned that honey has strong antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, and it has been used as a treatment for wounds and other skin problems for thousands of years.
In fact, honey is one of the most common home remedies for acne and acne scars.  It's cheap and 100% natural.  It's also incredibly easy to use.  
Honey is very moisturising.  This makes the honey mask ideal for people with dry skin.  If you have oily or combination skin, you can add a few drops of lemon juice to your honey mask.  Lemon juice is also good for treating acne scars, (read Lemons for clear skin for more information) but unlike honey, it may dry your skin.  
A teaspoon of honey is enough to cover your entire face.  Apply a thin layer and keep the honey mask on for at least 30 minutes.  If you are patient enough, leave it on for one hour, for optimum results.  The mask will not harden or dry.  Wash the mask off with lukewarm water.  Pad your face dry with a towel and apply your moisturiser.


Tips:

  •  Avoid applying a thick layer to your face because the warmth of your skin will melt the honey making it drip all over your clothes.  
  • You can also use a drop of honey as a spot treatment on a pimple or acne scar.

Honey is a very popular ingredient, used in various DIY beauty recipes.  When used alone as a facial mask, honey makes  the perfect natural, homemade mask to use on days when you feel lazy and do not want to mix ingredients to make other homemade masks.  
Honey will leave your skin looking healthy and radiant!
