I noticed that I got a good bit of feedback from my first D.I.Y post on how to make a lip scrub, so I thought that it would be a good idea to do another quick D.I.Y post for you, so if you’re looking to lighten, tighten and brighten your face, keep reading and you will soon find that this honey & lemon face mask is the answer to your beauty prayers!
What you need:
Raw honey & Organic lemon juice (just a fancy way of saying squeeze the juice out of real lemons rather than getting ready made lemon juice!)
Why raw honey?
Honey is a natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory so by using raw/organic honey in your face mask, you will benefit from all the nutrients that usually die due to excessive heat and pasteurization in non-organic honey.
It also absorbs impurities from the pores and the skin (No wonder ancient beauties used it with milk to keep their complexion looking young and radiant!)
And why would you ever want to put lemon on your face!!??
Lemon, lightens, tightens and brightens!!! Now to get more technical…. because of the lightening properties in lemon it is good for uneven skin tone. Not to mention that it’s good for exfoliating (important for any face mask!)
Now down to the nitty gritty…
Squeeze 1/2 a lemon into a bowl, add 2 tbsp of honey (organic/raw). Mix it with a spoon until it’s a liquid consistency. Apply it all over a clean face avoiding eye area.Leave on for 15-20 mins and rinse off. And it’s that simple!
