DIY: Honey Face Mask

 
Face Mask Recipies

When you’re trying to save all that money and put it towards paying off debt, you don’t have time to relax let alone treat yo’self! But, I just want to remind you how important it is to take care of your body and relax – even during this super debt saving mode you may be in. Today’s blog post is about. I’ve written a couple of posts on how to relax and a couple other ways you can relax, so check that out too!

I’ve created several different masks for each face type. So, use whatever mask best resembles you right now! Each of these items you should have around the house, that’s why you’ll see honey come up so often. Not only is it in every household, but it’s also really beneficial for your skin!

Honey is naturally antibacterial, so it’s great for acne treatment and prevention. If you’re noticing wrinkles, (not like it’s a bad thing – my stance on the subject is that you earned each one of those wrinkles and you should be proud of them. Same goes for gray hair) honey is full of antioxidants and can slow down the effects of aging. It’s also extremely moisturizing and soothing so it gives your face a natural glow!

So, as you can see there’s a reason why I choose to include honey in each of the recipes. They’re also all natural and environmentally friendly – because that’s what I’m all about!

With all these recipes, mix all the ingredients together and apply generously to your face. Wait about 10-15 minutes for it to dry and then gently wash off the mask and bask in your new wonderful smooth skin!

If you have Acne:

3 Tablespoons honey
1 Teaspoon nutmeg

Blackheads:

3 Tablespoons honey
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon

Large Pores:

2 Tablespoons honey
1 egg white

Wrinkles:

3 Tablespoons honey
1 Tablespoon ground up oatmeal

Dry Skin:

2 Tablespoons honey
1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil

Oily Skin:

3 Tablespoons honey
1 Tablespoon aloe vera

Scarred Skin:

3 Tablespoons honey
1 Teaspoon lemon juice (be careful around the eyes on this one!)

Please note: If you tend to have sensitive skin try out the mask before you put it on your whole face. Using the inside of your wrist will help determine if you’ll have an allergic reaction to the mask.

There you go! A mask for every skin type that’s environmentally friendly, all natural, and great for your skin. Let me know how your skin feels after using it in the comments below!
