Raw Honey DIY Face Mask

Beauty / Sexy Mama / August 7, 2017

People ask me what my secrets are for healthy, youthful skin and the first thing I tell them is “Go buy some raw honey.”  Usually they look at me with a confused expression on their face. “Is that really your best secret?”  Absolutely! Let me tell you why.

About 10 years ago, I was searching through the internet for a natural skin remedy to fight lines and wrinkles when I came across a post about the benefits of raw honey. Raw honey is chock full of skin loving anti-oxidants as well as anti-bacterial properties. Not only helping to open pores, it also fights acne, is very moisturizing and combats the signs of aging. Raw honey is great for those with sensitive skin.

DIY Raw Honey Mask

Here’s the best way, from years of experience, to use raw honey. On clean dry skin, spread an even amount on your face. Use as much as you like but not so much that it drips, keeping clear of the eyes! Allow the honey to stay on your face for 30 minutes. Relax in the bath, read a book, do some aromatherapy. C’mon, you need some you time! Rinse with warm water and that’s it! I recommenced using a moisturizer or face serum after. Do this 1 to 2 times a week and you should see a noticeable difference in 30 days or so.  If you really want to add a little punch, mix in some ground organic cinnamon before applying.  The ground cinnamon helps bring blood to the skin’s surface, boosting the effects.

These days you can find raw honey almost anywhere. I get mine right from the bee keeper but if you can’t find one nearby then I also recommend Manuka honey. Simply look for wild, raw, unprocessed honey at your local organic or farmers market.
