Face masks are a great way to help your skin out and give it a real boost from the same cleansing routine day in and day out. But if you’re like me and you don’t spend the money or maybe even don’t the time to go to a spa and spend up to £100 getting your face massaged, misted and slathered with all sorts of lotions and potions then making your own DIY face mask at home is an easy way to add in this skin boosting rescue.
My favourite one to do is a lemon and honey mask. Lemons are great for getting rid of bacteria and acne, brightening the complexion and exfoliating your skin. Honey is absolutely amazing for your skin and that’s for every skin type. If you’ve never tried this before you’ll be amazed how great your skin feels after using honey. Honey is a natural humectant which means it’s mega moisturising, but it also opens up your pores so allows the moisture to penetrate deep into your skin. It reduces acne and acne scars and can even reduce signs of ageing. But make sure you have ‘real’ honey. The liquid squeezey honey is very processed and has little to no benefits left. Natural, raw, set honey are the kinds you want to use. Here’s my easy three step guide to glowing skin.
1. Slice a lemon in half and rub gently all over a clean face and neck.
2. Take a teaspoon of honey in your fingers and rub all over face and neck and leave on for 30 minutes.
3. Wash off with warm water and apply a light layer of moisturiser.
This can be done weekly to eliminate acne, improve moisture, reduce large pores and brighten complexion. It should leave your skin feeling absolutely baby soft with a lovely glowing complexion. I was startled at the results and it really is easy peasy lemon squeezy!
