Honey Masks!

My girlfriend Christi got me hooked on this last year. Yes at first I was like “no way!! Sticky food on my face!.” But once I tried it I became a devout honey masker!

Honey is a great moisturizer, leaving your skin smooth as a baby’s booty! The hydroxyl acids also help to naturally exfoliate the skin, cleaning surface dirt from the pours. Furthermore the antibacterial properties of honey help fight any current infections on the skin (this is also great for healing any cuts on other areas of the body).

Be sure to purchase raw unprocessed honey (should be whiter in color than normal honey). The best is Manuka Honey, but is a little pricey. I usually just hit up Trader Joes or whole foods for one of their store brands and it does the job!

I usually just apply a light layer of the honey to my face and allow it to sit for approximately 20minutes then rinse with warm water. You can also get fancy and add some ground almonds (for a greater exfoliate) to the honey and apply it that way.

And guys this works great for you as well!
