Honey and Lemon Face Mask
If I’m at home making my own face mask, I will always add lemon to it, as lemon has many benefits for the skin. A lemon face mask can brighten, soothe and tighten the skin. Lemons are high in Vitamin C and vitamin C has many beneficial properties for the skin. It’s a powerful antioxidant that fights against free radicals. Free radicals break down the skins collagen resulting in wrinkles and sagging skin. Vitamin C is known to hydrate, improve skin texture and reduce signs of aging. Vitamin C will not only brighten your complexion, it can also help heal sun damaged skin.
Honey also has many beneficial properties for the skin. It helps to balance the bacteria on your skin, making it great to tackle acne. Honey contains vitamins and minerals that are good for your skin, it also hydrates the skin and makes it glow.
I like to add a couple of drops of almond oil, as almond oil is also amazing for the skin. It has many benefits including balancing the complexion, hydration, and it’s anti-aging.
Below is my favourite face mask using lemon, honey and almond oil. If you haven’t got almond oil you can just use lemon and honey.
