THE BEST HONEY FACE MASKS FOR EVERY SKIN TYPE
It is well known that honey consists of enzymes, essential oils, amino acids, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
If you have any skin care ailments ranging from eczema to acne, honey can help heal them as well as minor wounds.
Do not use the mask if you are allergic to any of the ingredients.
1. HONEY FACE MASK FOR ACNE
– 3 teaspoons raw honey
– 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Mix honey and cinnamon together, and apply to your face. Leave the mask on for 10-30 minutes. The antibacterial properties of both honey and cinnamon are especially beneficial for acne-prone skin.
Because cinnamon is so powerful, I would recommend only using this mask once a week at most.
2. HONEY FACE MASK FOR DRY SKIN
– 1 teaspoon mashed avocado
– 1 teaspoon plain whole milk yogurt
– 1 teaspoon raw honey
Mix ingredients in a small bowl until smooth. Spread the mixture over your face and let it sit for 20-30 minutes before washing it off.
The fats in the avocado and whole milk yogurt are deeply moisturizing to the skin, while the lactic acid in the yogurt smooths your skin, refines pores, and stimulates collagen production.
You can use this mask several times a week if you’d like. It’s very gentle on this skin.
3. HONEY FACE MASK FOR SENSITIVE SKIN
– 2 teaspoons raw honey
– 1 teaspoon aloe vera gel
Stir the aloe and honey together and apply over your face. Leave it on for about 10-20 minutes.
Aloe soothes inflammation and calms your skin, perfect for those with sensitive, irritated skin. It’s well known for it’s sunburn-soothing benefits, but aloe vera can also provide support for rashes, blisters, dry skin, eczema, minor burns, and scrapes. It’s even claimed to speed healing and prevent scarring.
This mask is safe to use every day if you’d like.
4. HONEY FACE MASK FOR SCARS AND DARK SPOTS
– 2 teaspoons raw honey
– 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
Combine the lemon juice and honey, and apply the mixture to your face. Allow it to sit for 20-30 minutes. Lemon juice exfoliates your skin, brightens dark spots and fades scars.
How long will it take to notice a difference?
Your skin will feel smooth and soft right away, but it may take a few applications to notice a real difference in scars and spots. Over several weeks and months, you may see a striking difference in the appearance of your skin.
Lemon juice is a stronger ingredient, so depending on your skin time, you might want to limit the number of times you use this mask to 1-2 times per week.
