Whether you use it every day or just for specific recipes, honey is an ingredient we all probably have in our cupboards. But, are you taking advantage of all the benefits it can bring to your skin with a honey face mask?
According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, honey “exerts emollient, humectant, soothing, and hair conditioning effects, keeps the skin juvenile and retards wrinkle formation, regulates pH and prevents pathogen infections.” Basically meaning that it can help lock in moisture, keep your skin looking young and smooth and is also antibacterial!
You can mix honey into your face masks to reap all of these wonderful benefits, or you can use honey directly on your (freshly cleansed) skin alone for the ultimate honey face mask! Leave the honey on your face for about 20-30 minutes, and gently wash off with warm water.
