    Yummy recipes – I love using and recommending honey in my recipes especially UMF active honey as it’s super powerful as a healing, antimicrobial and moisturising ingredient.

    I like to use the honey and lemon. I cut a lemon in half and add raw, unfiltered honey on it then rub across face. I love the sensation, the scent, the taste, and the results! Works as a nice skin brightener.

    I have really bad skin, and I love doing a plain raw honey mask! It cleans my pores, reduces inflamed acne, and leaves my skin feeling softer than before!

      A little cinnamon oil can be used with the coconut oil, but I would only use a drop or two in a small jar of coconut oil–more than that can burn the skin.

    Don’t make the mistake of applying itt on unaffected acne skin because it can drry out your skin.
    in 1582 when Antonio de Espejo reported onn tthe richness of the region and
    the disfovery of mines in what is today central Arizona.
    Before you go to sleep, aoply it on afeas with acne.

    I tried making it myself but it got messy. So I looked up some honey masks online and this was the cheapest I could find. Can’t beat 4oz for $15. And theirs have some good ingredients added to it. I went ahead and got a couple. Check it out: http://www.razorbumpcream.com/product/organic-honey-face-masque-4oz/

    Which E.O. would you suggest to mix with the honey as an anti-aging for “mature” and mixed (oily, dry and normal) skin?

    I would like to find something that help the skin to go back to a firmer state… it just started to become a bit… euh… slack… at certain area.

    Suggestions… please :) ???

      Avocado or yogurt are both soothing and moisturizing. Anything with vitamin C (like orange juice) is good for firming the skin.

    I’ve been using an ancient Asian masks for a few days now and my skin feels great! The recipe for a huge bowl is: 1 spoon of pure termeric powder (yellow-brownish spice), two spoons of pure honey, two spoons of all natural yogurt ( any will do), 2 spoons of brown rice powder, half of a lemon, and you could add 1 egg white but the egg white isn’t in the original recipe.

    Is it necessary to follow with a moisturizer after rinsing off the honey mask? I use Neutrogena Healthy Skin moisturizer.

    I love using honey. But I do avoid cinnamon as it burns. Otherwise I love all the other masks.

    I’ve been doing honey face masks every night, and my acne-prone skin is now clear and bright! I can’t rave enough about honey face masks!!! I first rub a lemon on my face, and then cover with raw honey.. I keep it on for as long as I can in the evening before bed – then take it off with warm water and moisturize. It’s divine!

    How often should I use the mask? Is it bad for irritated skin to use more thank a couple times a week?

      The plain honey mask can be used daily because it’s so gentle. But the cinnamon or lemon juice should be limited to 1-2 times a week at most.

    Have been suffering from pimples for the past years .. Let me say up to 15 years back and still disturbing me seriously up till now …. I got raw honey and mixed it with lime juice and apply it on my face still no success .. So am thinking maybe the honey I purshased is off law quality. I actually got the honey from all this villagers that sell honey alone the road , the honey usually inside a bottle and its unfiltered. Should I get honey from supermarket or the honey is okay because I believe is raw …

    Or someone should suggest the best home remedy to treat pimples and dark spot .. Thanks

      If it’s local honey, it’s probably good! Try the other face mask recipes and you might find one that works for your skin.

    This past week I’ve kept a mixture of honey and cinnamon in my bathroom to use as a face wash. Its cleared my skin quite well but I still had a few blemishes. So…this morning I decided to blend all of my favourite masks and it worked AMAZINGLY WELL! There’s lots leftover so I’ve put it into a baby food jar to keep in the fridge.

    Here’s the mix:
    * 2 tbsp Organic Honey
    * 1 tbsp Cinnamon
    * 1 tsp Lemon Juice (freshly squeezed)

    1. Apply to face in a thin layer so that it doesn’t drip

    * 1 tbsp coffee grinds

    2. Apply with fingertip that still has honey mixture on it over the mask covering completely

    3. Let sit for 30 minutes

    4. Wipe off with towel soaked in warm water

    5. Pat dry

    I use pure raw organic honey, lemon juice and sugar as a facial scrub/mask and it has made my skin feel amazing!! I noticed a difference in how my skin felt and looked thr first time I used it.

    My Routine:

    Mix:
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/2 cup raw organic honey
    3-4 drops of pure lemon juice

    Apply to face scrub for about 2-3 mins. Then let sit as a mask for about 5-10 mins. Then rinse with warm water. I then moisturize with Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel.

    I absolutely love this regimen!!!????

    That’s because the job of cinnamon is to clean your skin from underneath, it brings out all the bacteria and your skin will get much more acne at the beginning because it is getting rid of everything underneath but after that your skin will look great–it works similar to Proactive, it cleans everything underneath ad maintains that cleanliness
