Hello everyone and thank you for joining me once again here on the blog!
Now, I love face masks but I also love knowing what exactly is going directly on my face so I just make my own face masks. This one is a longtime favorite and I try to do it at least once a week because it’s both cleansing and hydrating. And this is how you can make it yourself as well!
- 1 tea-spoon raw honey
- 1 tea-spoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 tea-spoon rose-water
- 2 tea spoons clay or as much as it takes for the mask to have a creamy consistency
Honey: It’s antibacterial and it has probiotic properties, so it will reduce breakouts and prevent new acne. It also helps the skin to heal faster; it balances oily skin and it moisturizes dry skin.
Lemon juice: It contains Vitamin C, so it helps with fading scars and age spots. It can heal acne, exfoliate the skin, brightens it and tones it.
Rose water: It helps maintain the skin’s pH balance, controls excess oil and it has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce the redness of irritated skin. Rose water hydrates and revitalizes the skin, it can heal scars and it’s full of antioxidants. They strengthen the skin cells and regenerate it.
Clay: It heals and regenerates the skin tissue; it draws out toxins and treats acne. It also unclogs and shrinks the pores; it prevents black heads and evens out the skin tone.
How to make it: Just mix everything in a bowl until you get a smooth consistency that you can apply on your skin. Wet your face and apply the mask with an old makeup brush or with your fingers. Wait for 10-15 minutes and wash your face. You can now apply your usual moisturizer. When you apply the mask avoid the eye and mouth area. Use the face mask 1-2 times a week.
And that’s it. It’s easy to do and the benefits are endless! This face mask made a huge change in the way my skin looks and that’s why I try making it as often as possible. I honestly haven’t used any other face mask in years! I hope you enjoyed the post and thank you for reading! Until next time!
