Honey and Lemon Mask – DIY Organic Mask Recipe to Try Today

Want clear, glowing skin? Look no further than your kitchen, for you probably already have these simple skincare ingredients on hand to make a honey and lemon mask. Because how frustrating is it to find the perfect mask recipe, only to then have to wait until you have time to run around town, on the hunt for obscure and difficult-to-find ingredients?

No need for the hassle with this beauty must-have, as it uses just honey and lemon juice for a perfect facial mask.

It’s absolutely safe, budget-friendly, and will leave your skin refreshed and rejuvenated!

Honey and Lemon Mask – How does it work?

For starters, lemon contains alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), which help to remove dead skin cells. And honey is full of antioxidants as a natural antibiotic agent that fights free radical damage.

Other benefits of the honey and lemon mask are it hydrates skin, clears acne, works as a gentle cleansing agent, dries out pimples, reduces redness and instantly soothes irritation, brightens skin, reduces dryness and even flaking, evens out skin tone (due to sun damage or blemishes) and helps reduce scarring.

Before you start:

A quick note: some skin may be sensitive to lemon juice, so it’s recommended to test a bit on another area of your body, such as inside your elbow, before you cover your face. Wait a few minutes to see if your skin reacts to the juice.

 

Ok, I’m ready for glowing skin.

– Pour boiling hot water into a bowl, and stand above the water to allow the steam to rise to your face. Note: this step is optional, but will serve to open your pores (as well as feel amazing).

– Mix 1 tbsp of organic honey with the juice from half a lemon.

– Apply the mask, covering your face and neck but avoiding the area near your eyes.

– Wait 20 minutes, and then wash off with warm water, followed by cold water.

– The cold water is also optional, but will help close your pores.

– Pat dry.

And that’s it! So simple.

 

Another quick recommendation: because skin can be extra sensitive to the sun after coming into contact with lemon juice, make sure you follow normal sun exposure safety protocols (i.e., wear a hat and sunblock if you go outside afterward).

This mask can be used every day! Or as often as you like. You will probably see a glow right away, but if you apply it often you will really notice a difference over time.

Afterward, you can either leave your skin fresh, or moisturize using one of the all-natural hydration options found here.
