As the beauty business is getting big, many still would want to try some home remedies. The reason for this is not only cheaper, but it is also safer because it surely will be no harmful chemicals involved.
One of the most popular ingredients is honey. It is said to be healthy and have a lot of benefits when eaten, but it is not only that. It is also good for the skin and hair, and that is why honey is added to some products.
But nothing beats a home-made one, because you would know it is all-natural. Face masks are one of the easiest things you can make, and there are a lot of varieties in different issues.
Finding the Best Honey
First things first. You should need to find the best honey. The best honey you will use are those that are raw and unfiltered. Some store-bought is not really pure, so it will be better to find something locally that you will really know it is raw.
You can use honey as is which means you do not need anything mixed in it. With just one teaspoon, spread it all over your face and then leave it for about an hour. After that, rinse it with lukewarm water, and you already have something for your acne.
But there are other solutions. Other household items can be mixed in with the honey to have more substantial results. Here are some easy recipes you can try:
1. For Acne
Aside from pure honey, you can add in a half teaspoon of cinnamon. Cinnamon is antibacterial and is great for acne. The problem is that it might be irritating to those who have sensitive skin, so it will not be for all. Add to that cinnamon is a powerful ingredient, so it is not recommended to use daily.
2. For Dry Skin
For dry skin, honey is combined with avocado. With one teaspoon of honey and one teaspoon of mashed avocado, mixed them together in a small bowl with one teaspoon of whole milk yogurt until it is smooth. And then after that, spread it over your face and let it sit for half an hour.
3. For Sensitive Skin
You will need an aloe vera gel. With one teaspoon of it, mixed in two teaspoons of honey then apply it to your face and leave it for about 10 to 20 minutes.
4. For Oily Skin
Clay masks are good for absorbing oil. There are a variety of products available in stores, but you can definitely do it on your own. You would need one teaspoon of either Bentonite clay or Moroccan red clay. Then mix it in a non-active bowl with one teaspoon of honey and one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar. Apply it on your face then after 15 minutes, rinse it with warm water then after that, with cold water.
5. For Spots
If you are having spots or even scars all over your face, there is a simple solution for that. You will just need two teaspoons of honey and half a teaspoon of lemon juice combined. Then have it in your face for half an hour then rinse. Just a reminder that lemon juice is a strong substance, so you may want to limit its use.
