Who doesn’t love fresh, glowing, beautiful skin? Specially when you’re in your 20’s and 30’s you definitely want to take better care of your skin (of course 40’s and above included). While monthly facials are a thing, but not everyone can afford monthly salon services. So if you’re looking for ways to keep your skin soft, fresh and clean then this Homemade (& Natural) Lemon & Honey Face Mask is all you need.

This super easy, effective and affordable face mask made with only two ingredients is a perfect facial treatment at home. The ingredients that are likely to be in your kitchen at all times, can help soothe, heal and even out your skin tone. Isn’t that genius?

I have been experimenting with homemade face masks lately and that’s when I started these Natural Wonders series on the blog. I’ve used homemade Miracle face mask (read here) to combat acne and have absolutely loved the results. So when I was trying this one I was expecting equally good results right away, as this Lemon & Honey Face Mask uses Honey that is a natural antioxidant and antibacterial agent that absorbs impurities from the skin and Lemons are filled with AHA’s and BHA’s (alien terms alert!) Alpha hydroxy acids and Beta hydroxy acids which makes lemons a great natural exfoliate, rich in vitamin C that helps in skin brightening and exfoliation.
In one line, this face mask makes your skin look young, smooth, radiant, acne free, even toned and beautiful!
Here how to make this Natural Lemon & Honey Face Mask:
Things you’ll need 
  • 2 Tbsp Honey
  • 1/2 lemon
 Directions 
  • In a bowl squeeze lemon, add honey and mix with a spoon until it’s liquid in consistency
  • Clean your face and pat dry. keep your hair pulled back from your face as the mask will be sticky
  •  Apply the mask on your face avoiding the eye area
  • Let your skin soak all the natural wonders for 15-20 minutes
  •  Rinse off with cold water and gently pat dry your skin
  •  Apply your favorite moisturizer and enjoy beautiful glowing skin
I use this mask at night, once a week because I feel night time is actually the best time to make the skin breathe and when you wake up in the morning you’ve beautiful, smooth and clean skin.

Natural Wonders: Miracle Face Mask

Natural-Wonders-Miracle-Face-Mask-Tickle-those-Tastebuds

Summers are officially here and the weather is hot and sometimes humid too and the skin has to deal with all the kinds of weather changes. At times you have to deal with a lot of skin issues, because Hey! who doesn’t want a happy, fresh and glowing skin?

As for me, I have a really really sensitive skin, like Reeally Sensitive one so I cannot experiment much with it. Also I’m not much in favor of beauty creams or acne creams available so I prefer not to rely on those and use more of natural stuff. Normally in summers I try to keep my skin hydrated and clean throughout the day and night too.

In this post I’m sharing my Summer Treatment, on how I combat my skin issues using natural products and hope to get some useful tips from you as well.

One of my most favorite treatments when my skin gets all crazy is this mask which I call the Miracle Face Mask that includes honey, cinnamon powder and baking soda. Why I love it so much is that all the items are available in the pantry, its natural, inexpensive and really really effective! (Do I need to say more??).

Yes I do, I need to tell you more about it. Well, this mask has honey that is a natural antibacterial agent that helps to heal, moisturize and condition the skin. Baking soda exfoliates, unclogs pores and softens the skin and Cinnamon Powder is a natural astringent and anti fungal treatment. This mask can be used once or twice a week to reduce inflamed acne, reduce pores, fade away acne scars and clear the dead skin build up.

So this is how it works:

What you’ll need

  • 1 Tbsp Honey
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon Powder

Directions

  • In a small bowl mix all the ingredients together
  • Wash your face and pat dry
  • Apply the mask and leave on for 15 – 20 minutes
  • Wash mask off with water, until skin is completely clean
  • Pat Dry and apply your favorite moisturizer 

Once you rise off the mask your skin will immediately feel soft, smooth, clean and bright. You’ll definitely be pleased with the results just like I was. I apply this mask twice a week at night before going to bed and believe me my family noticed that my skin looked clear and bright and I could feel the softness and acne scars fading that’s why I call it my Miracle Face Mask.

If you have sensitive skin then, I will highly suggest testing out a patch on your skin (preferably inside of the elbow) before applying to whole face.

**If your skin starts to burn, remove the mask immediately.
