Lemon and honey face mask is a tried and tested recipe with promising results. Lemons are filled with AHA’s and BHA’s that even out skin tone, while honey has natural antioxidant and antibacterial properties used for skin treatment dating back to ancient Greek and Egyptian times.
This is an instant recipe, so before squeezing any lemons, steam your face first. Pour boiling hot water in a bowl and hover your face above it to let the steam open up your pores. Now let's make our all-natural beauty mask. Mix 1 tbsp of organic raw honey with half a lemon squeezed into a bowl ... and our mask is ready! It is really that simple.
Gently apply the mixture all over your face, rubbing with the tip of your fingers in a circular motion. Avoid getting it in the eyes, nostrils, mouth and ears. Let it sit on the skin for 15 to 20 minutes so the solution absorbs properly. Rinse with warm water first, and then a couple of cold water splashes at the end to close the pores. Pat face dry and let your skin breathe for a few hours by avoiding makeup, especially foundation. Lemon and Honey face mask can be applied daily, and works best when squeezed fresh with every use.
