Probably, your never-ending quest for the most natural and simplest skincare treatment might end here? Honey is a perfect natural solution for many skin problems.

Many cosmetic brands offer beauty products with honey, including the most expensive honey in the world – manuka. However, homemade facial honey masks have the main advantage – no chemicals, they are 100% natural. You know exactly what your mask consists of, and you are sure of the freshness and quality of its ingredients. And at the same time, it costs you much less than a mask from the store!

But first, don’t forget about these two things:

  1. Honey you are going to use has to be raw, not pasteurized
  2. If you are allergic to honey, then sorry, honey facials masks are not for you. And even if you think that you are not, start with a patch test to make sure your skin wouldn’t have an allergic reaction; it’s always better to be safe. You can make this easy test: test the effect of honey on the skin by smearing the put a little bit of honey on the crook of the elbow or on the inner side of your wrist and wait 15 min. If there is no itching and redness, you can apply a mask of honey on your face.
