How to Make the Honey Mask
This honey mask is very easy to make and you will only need a few ingredients. Not only will it feel great on your skin, it will also smell really good. Try not to lick it off you face!
You will need:
- wash cloth
- head band or hair tie
Before you start, make sure you pull your hair back so that it doesn’t get all sticky with honey. Then you can wash your face as you normally would and pat it dry. Do not apply any toner or moisturizer just yet. Get some honey on your finger tips and massage it all over the face until it is covered with a fine layer of honey. Should some of it get on your lips, lick it off! There is no reason why this recipe shouldn’t be good for the skin and yummy for the tummy. Once you are sure you have covered every last bit of skin, sit back and relax while the honey does its work. You will need to let it stay for 20 minutes at the very least so grab your favorite book or tune on to your favorite show while you wait. After your 20 minutes are up, pour warm water on a bowl and use this to rinse your face. You might be worried that the honey will take forever to come off but the warm water will make sure it rinses of easily enough. Once every bit of honey is gone, pat your skin dry and moisturize as you normally would.
This mask is really easy to make and is basically fool-proof. However, it is a good idea to visit your doctor and ask him what he thinks of the honey mask for acne before you give it a go. After all, this mask may work wonders but nothing is more wonderful that sage advice given by a skin care expert. Besides, your doctor may just prevent you from making a big mistake that will just make your acne and your acne scars worse instead of better.
