In my ongoing search for natural beauty products I ran across a fantastic face mask recipe that only requires a lemon and honey. Could it really be this simple? Who knew that these 2 simple ingredients that you probably have lying around your house could be so beneficial for your skin?
I sure didn't.
And I have recently learned that drinking lemon water is great for detoxification. (I try to do this every morning when I first get up.)
What I didn't know was that when you put lemon and honey together, you get a very powerful mask with many benefits, including:
- Brightening your skin
- Tightening your skin
- Fading acne scars
- Treating trouble skin
- Minimizing Pores
- Calming Redness and evening out skin tone
Before you begin, make sure you have raw, unfiltered, preferably organic honey or Manuka Honey and an organic lemon.
Lemon Honey Face Mask
Mix ingredients until it becomes a liquid consistently. Apply on a freshly cleansed face. Leave on for 20 minutes or longer. Sometimes I leave on for up to an hour.
Rinse with warm water and apply moisturizer of choice. Right now I am using Jojoba Oil to moisturize.
You can make more at a time if you like, but I usually just mix up enough for one mask.
So that's it. Couldn't get much simpler. 🙂
If you try this mask out, I would love to hear your results! Please share by leaving a comment below!
