Honey is a natural product that is excellent for use in skincare. It attracts the dirt from skin pores and dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. It is also known to hydrate and condition the skin, and that’s why its a good ingredient to add in skin and body care products.
A quick an easy exfoliating honey face mask can be whipped up in just a few minutes with ingredients found in your kitchen using the recipe below:
3 Tablespoons honey
1 Tablespoon coarse oatmeal
1 Tablespoon whole milk
Mix all the ingredients above in a bowl with a spoon and THAT’S IT!
How to use: Wash your face with an appropriate cleanser and towel dry. Plaster your face with the honey mask and let sit for 10-15 minutes. Exfoliate for 1 minute using a circular motion, and then wash off. Apply a nourishing moisturizer.
Honey: Cleanses, hydrates and softens the skin.
Oatmeal: Exfoliates and gets rid of dead skin cells with the honey to reveal brighter looking skin.
Whole milk: It soothes and moisturizes the skin because it is a natural emollient. It also nourishes the skin because it is rich in vitamins and minerals.
You can mix it up a little by adding cocoa powder which is rich in antioxidants and is great for keeping the skin looking young. This is the idea behind our
