Using honey in a mask can have many nourishing benefits and will really make your skin glow, especially if you manage to not lick it off!
In winter our skin can look grey and lack its luminosity, give it lots of TLC and use as many natural ingredients as you can.
- Pick up a Manuka honeypot, which is 100% pure and possesses a high MGO rating – the higher the MGO rating; the better the health benefits. We recommend Australian Manuka Honey from Real Health, prices start at £23.99.
- You can also take this a step further by mixing the Manuka with half a teaspoon of cinnamon and half a teaspoon of rosewater to give the mask that extra zest. Cinnamon has powerful anti-microbial properties, whilst rose water will help clear pores and tone skin.
- Dampen the skin with water in order to make the application of the mask easier.
- Apply evenly over the whole face avoiding eyes and lips. One tablespoon of honey should be enough to spread on the whole of your face.
- Relax for 15-20 minutes, letting the anti-bacterial effect take place and allowing the mask to dry.
- Finally, remove with warm water or a damp flannel.
