Honey is a versatile ingredient in skin care face masks, because it has antibacterial properties, and its sticky nature makes it ideal for sticking to your skin.
Here are a few honey face mask recipes, depending your skin’s unique needs:
Honey Face Mask for Dry Skin
Mix 1 teaspoon of mashed avocado, 1 teaspoon of plain whole milk yogurt, and 1 teaspoon of raw honey. Spread the mix onto your face and let it sit for 20-30 minutes. This skin treatment is ideal for dry skin because it is full of fat from the avocado and yogurt.
Honey Face Mask for Sensitive Skin
Mix 2 teaspoons of raw honey with 1 teaspoon of aloe vera gel and let it sit on your face for 10-20 minutes. Anyone who’s used aloe vera after getting sunburned knows that it is wonderful for cooling and soothing inflammation, and it works the same way here to make your skin feel smooth and calm.
