Treat Your Skin to 4 Homemade Honey Face Masks

Hydration is key to healthy skin, and honey is a natural humectant, meaning it locks moisture into the skin. The following 4 homemade honey face masks can be applied weekly to meet your skin’s changing needs. In addition to honey, fresh ingredients like avocado nourish skin, while other ingredients like cream and yogurt provide lactic acid to speed up exfoliation.

1. COCOA AND CREAM MASK

Alpha hydroxy acids rapidly exfoliate the skin, revealing fresh, new skin cells while evening out skin tone. There are a lot of products containing AHAs out there today, but natural AHA masks also can be easily created at home with a few fresh ingredients like apples, citrus and dairy.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tablespoon organic sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon honey

DIRECTIONS

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and apply to face and neck until mask dries. Rinse with warm water to remove.

2. ANTI-AGING FLAXSEED + HONEY MASK

Flaxseeds are both high in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory, and when combined with honey’s antibacterial properties, this mask is perfect for fighting acne or a deep exfoliation.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 teaspoons flaxseeds
  • 3 teaspoons organic, plain yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon honey

DIRECTIONS

Soak flaxseeds in hot water. Wait a few minutes for the seeds to absorb the water and become more gel-like in consistency. Add yogurt and honey and mix well. Apply a thin layer to face and neck and leave on for 10 to 15 minutes. This is a great hydration mask – apply and leave on while you take a bath. Simply rinse off the mask when your bath is done.

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon raw honey

DIRECTIONS

Mix ingredients together and apply to face. Let it dry for 15 to 20 minutes, then rinse with warm water.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tablespoon avocado, mashed
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • ½ teaspoon heavy cream

Directions:

Mix avocado, honey and heavy cream until smooth. Apply the mask to face and neck and leave for 10 minutes before rinsing with warm water.
