If you have been keeping up with my current beauty regimen, then you know that I am down to the last of my Fresh Rose Face Mask. Instead of using the last of it (insert monkey covering mouth emoji) I went straight to my kitchen cabinet for some good ol’ honey. I was introduced to the “honey mask” a few years back by a dear roommate. He was walking around with what appeared to be a clear mask on his face, which I later learned was honey. After he told me the benefits of honey for the skin I was eager to get my own honey mask on.

Fast forward between then and about a month ago, I had only used the honey mask less than a handful of times. Now that I am down to the last of my Fresh Rose Face Mask and in between facial appointments, this honey mask has been a true face saver! (the glow is for real)
The Benefits of a Honey Mask:
- Honey’s antibacterial properties are great for acne prone skin and can be used as spot treatment for unexpected company aka zits
- Honey is full of antioxidants making it a perfect catalyst for anti-aging
- Honey boots natural complexion
- Honey hydrates skin
The best part is that honey is very inexpensive compared to the leading face mask products on the market today. I recommend purchasing honey that is raw and unfiltered, and if possible, local. You can also maximize the benefits of honey by combining it with other natural ingredients for concentrated treatments.
Step 1: Cleanse your face then exfoliate with organic coconut oil and raw brown sugar mixture to remove dead skin cells.
Step 2: Apply 1-2 tablespoon of honey (along with any other natural ingredient) to the skin.
Step 3: Keep the honey mask on for about 20 minutes then remove with a warm cloth. Proceed to apply your daily moisturizer.
Let’s be honest…
Honey is messy and sticky. If you’re not about that life there are products you can purchase such as Farmacy Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask or Fresh Creme Ancienne Ultimate Nourishing Honey Mask, that are honey-based so you can still reap the amazing benefits of honey. These products are also perfect for on the go application.
