DIY Honey Face Mask
Hola Tanneritos! (I'm currently watching Full House with my little lady, I don't normally greet people that way; but don't act like you didn't know what that was from!) So today I'm going to give you the run down on my honey mask. My very first post ever was on the DIY Orange Juice Face Mask and I did that one first because it was my most recent discovery but this one is my favorite.
I was reluctant to hop on the natural, DIY bandwagon at first because I figured if this stuff really works then there's money to be made there. Why aren't companies using these ingredients in their skin care products? But after trying all those masks/cleansers in the store with no improvement in my skin I thought what the hell, right? I'm glad I did because this works better than anything!
Honey is antibacterial. It moisturizes and acts as a natural inflammatory, which reduces redness and swelling. The cinnamon is great for exfoliation and the lemon juice is a great astringent and it fades dark marks. I mean come on! Does it get any better than that? Ingredients are cheap, instructions are simple:
Uses: soothe, smooth, heal, even out skin tone AND help remove blackheads
1.) Mix 2 tbsp of honey with a tbsp of lemon juice and a tsp of cinnamon
2.) Apply to your face and rub in gentle circles
3.) Let the mask set for 20-30 minutes
4.) Wash it off with warm water while scrubbing in gentle circles (again)
5.) Finish with your facial lotion (I use good ole Coconut Oil)
Thumbs up for sticky faces!
I never cease to be amazed when I use this mask. My face is always brighter and softer and my dark spots fade a little more with each use. I make this mask in big batches because I use it so frequently (about once a week). If you choose to do this, just double/triple the amount of each ingredient (we're not baking a cake here, just eyeball it and you'll be fine). It is a really runny mask so don't think you've done it wrong. I'm telling you though, it is so worth it to check it out!
