8 Best DIY Raw Honey Face Masks
Mixed with natural ingredients, raw honey makes for an effective and inexpensive beauty treatment. Applying honey regularly on your skin can give you results beyond your imagination and can go a long way in giving you healthy, younger-looking and glowing skin. Whatever your skin type is, there’s a DIY honey face mask perfect for it.
For using honey as a pore cleanser, mix 1 teaspoon raw Organic Forest Honey with 2 teaspoons jojoba oil or coconut oil. Apply to clean, dry skin, and massage gently in a circular motion, avoiding your eye area. Rinse with cold water. Organic forest honey is a valuable raw honey variety due to the wide range of herbs, botanicals and tree nectars it contains. Highly acclaimed for its medical qualities to cleanse the body and boost the immune system and soothe the skin.
Mix 2 teaspoons Raw Rapeseed Honey with 1 teaspoon baking soda. Splash your skin with water, and then gently rub the mixture on your face in a circular motion. Rinse well. Rapeseed honey crystallises quickly, helps exfoliate the skin by gently removing the dead skin cells, also aiding skin regeneration and leaves the face with a brighter complexion.
Rub 1 tablespoon Ginger Infused Raw Honey onto your face in circular motions. Leave on for 15 minutes, rinse off with warm water. In a few minutes, you will see the results. Ginger has strong anti-inflammatory properties, and with honey, it can boost the healing process of stubborn acne.
Moisturising dry skin
Mix 2 tablespoons Raw Sunflower Honey with 1/4 mashed avocado in a small bowl. Stir in 2 tablespoons finely ground almonds. Spread over the face and neck, and after 15–20 minutes, rinse with warm water. Sunflower honey helps retain moisture; it’s high in Vitamin E, A, C and D. Together
with avocado, they are the perfect hydrating ingredients for dry skin. Ground almonds gently exfoliate, and their good fats leave your skin feeling super soft.
Honey face mask for oily skin
Mix 1 teaspoon Raw Wildflower Honey and the juice of ½ lemon. Apply it all over your face and leave it on for 10–15 minutes. Wash with warm water. Repeat twice or three times a week for the best result.
Lemon removes the dead skin cells from the skin, while honey moisturises it.
Honey face mask for sensitive skin
Combine 1 teaspoon matcha powder, 1 tablespoon Raw Lavender Honey and 1 teaspoon jojoba oil (or almond oil) in a small bowl and mix well. Apply this to the face and leave it for 15 minutes before washing it off with warm water. Both green tea (matcha) and raw honey are potent antioxidants that help repair damaged skin. Lavender has a lovely calming effect and Raw Acacia Honey is known for its anti-inflammatory properties.
Honey mask to even out skin tone and reduce discolouration
Mix 1 teaspoon lemon juice, 1 tablespoon natural yoghurt and 1 tablespoon Turmeric Infused Raw Honey in a small bowl. Apply a thin layer over your entire face and neck. Rest for 20 minutes and rinse with warm water. Repeat once a week. Results will take a minimum of 2 months.
Turmeric is well known to reduce the appearance of fine lines and dark spots; honey adds a slight bleaching effect while lemon juice and natural yoghurt gently exfoliates to get rid of dead skin, encouraging new cell growth.
