4 Simple Honey Face Masks for Every Skin Type

4 Simple Honey Face Masks for Every Skin Type

I love skincare you can eat, and the raw honey face mask tops my list of homemade beauty products. Raw honey was prized for its healing properties in ancient civilizations, and it makes an incredible mask for your skin all by itself. I use a raw honey mask several times a week, and I notice a definite improvement in the tone and softness of my skin. I love it even more for the fact that it’s totally edible and doesn’t expose my skin to the chemicals found in most beauty products.

While raw honey is lovely, you can also mix and match other food-based ingredients to tailor your mask to your unique skin type. Below are four recipes for honey face masks designed with specific skin types in mind:

1. Honey Face Mask for Acne-Prone Skin

  • 3 teaspoons raw honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix honey and cinnamon together, and apply to your face. Leave the mask on for 10-30 minutes. The antibacterial properties of both honey and cinnamon are especially beneficial for acne-prone skin. (Cinnamon can occasionally be irritating if your skin is really sensitive, so you might want to do a patch test on the back of your hand first.)

2. Honey Face Mask for Dry Skin

  • 1 teaspoon mashed avocado
  • 1 teaspoon plain whole milk yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon raw honey

Mix ingredients in a small bowl until smooth. Spread the mixture over your face and let it sit for 20-30 minutes before washing it off. The fats in the avocado and whole milk yogurt are deeply moisturizing to the skin, while the lactic acid in the yogurt smooths your skin, refines pores, and stimulates collagen production.

3. Honey Face Mask for Sensitive Skin

  • 2 teaspoons raw honey
  • 1 teaspoon aloe vera gel

Stir the aloe and honey together and apply over your face. Leave it on for about 10-20 minutes. Aloe soothes inflammation and calms your skin, perfect for those with sensitive, irritated skin.

4. Honey Face Mask for Scars and Dark Spots

  • 2 teaspoons raw honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

Combine the lemon juice and honey, and apply the mixture to your face. Allow it to sit for 20-30 minutes. Lemon juice exfoliates your skin, brightens dark spots and fades scars. Your skin will feel smooth and soft right away, but it may take a few applications to notice a real difference in scars and spots.

 

Question: What honey is best for a honey face mask?

Answer: Any real honey will do, but my personal favorite is raw, unfiltered honey because it retains more of its potent healing properties. I can actually tell the difference between the types of honey I’ve used for my honey mask. A high quality local raw honey made my skin glow in a way the others didn’t!
