Hey guys! This week I decided to try a honey and lemon DIY face mask.
First gather your materials:
- A warm wet rag
- A TBSP measuring spoon
- Something to stir with (I used a silicone mask brush)
- A knife
- A lemon
- A small bowl
- Raw honey
Cut the lemon in half. I usually roll it on a hard surface first, as I find it’s easier to squeeze. Squeeze of one tablespoon of juice into small container.
Add two tablespoons of honey and mix well.
Before the mask
At this point I thought it would be thicker, and had planned on applying it with my silicone mask brush, but I ended up applying it with a cotton ball.
Then wait for thirty minutes.
While it’s dried
Remove with a warm damp cloth.
So let’s talk about the ingredients.
The vitamin C in the lemon juice can help with brightening. It contains alpha hydroxy acids which help exfoliate away dead skin cells.
Honey is naturally antibacterial. So it works well for acne prone skin. It’s also full of antioxidants which help fight free radicals, and also help with the aging process. Honey is also a great moisturizer and skin soothed. It’s also a great ingredient to use before an extraction, since it helps open up the pores.
Overall, I really enjoyed this mask, and will probably use it again in the future.
