Anti-Aging Honey Mask

This sweet and sticky facial treatment is a quick way to soften and hydrate rough skin. All-natural honey has been used for its beautifying properties since antiquity and is a key component in a wide range of commercially manufactured haircare and skincare products. Honey is a natural humectant and contains potent antioxidants. So, not only does it attract and retain moisture, it helps fight skin-killing free radicals. Honey is also antimicrobal, which means that it inhibits the growth of bacteria. Therefore, it`s safe and non-drying option for sensitive and acne-prone skin.

How To: Use plain, non-flavored honey at room temperature. Apply a thick amount to your skin (including neck and upper décolleté). Avoid eyebrows and hairline. Relax for 10 to 20 minutes. Remove honey with a warm washcloth.
