Weekend Project: Make Your Own Honey And Lemon Face Mask (It's Great For Neutralizing Redness!)
June 16, 2017
If you’re familiar with any of my DIY posts, then you know that I love lemon. I drink lemon water all day every day and since I always have lemons laying around, I’ve found plenty of other good uses for them. One of my faves? My honey and lemon face mask!
Honey has been part of women’s beauty routines for centuries and for good reason: it is a fab natural ingredient. It is an anti-inflammatory, so it is perfect for the redness in my complexion and if you have any acne scarring this will be your saving grace. Plus, the silky texture keeps my skin soft and smooth and it’ll do the same for yours.
As for lemon, it is a natural source of vitamin C which also produces collagen in the skin (hello brighter skin, bye-bye wrinkles!).
When you pair this face mask up with regularly consumption of this lemon-infused detox water (my favorite), you’re basically setting yourself up for gorgeous skin.
So without further ado, here’s how to whip up the super easy honey lemon face mask that you all need to try:
You’ll need a ton of lemon juice, so squeeze 1/2 of a lemon into a bowl and mix this with 2 tablespoons of honey until it becomes liquid in consistency. Once you have your magic mask ready to go, just get that all over your face. This might get a little sticky so be sure you’re in the kitchen, bathroom, or somewhere you don’t mind the mess. Now just chill out for about 20 minutes while you let it transform your skin. Then rinse off with warm water. All done; hello gorgeous!
