Why Honey Facial Masks Are Great for Your Skin

Honey is one of those quite rare foods that are very versatile in their use and function. Honey facial masks involve the use of this special ingredient. Honey is not only a delicious food additive, it is also used in the healthcare and beauty sectors for its many health benefits.

This one-of-a-kind food possesses special antioxidant and antiseptic properties. It is also very cleansing in nature. It offers amazing benefits to the health of the human body.

The honey facial mask is very potent and extensively used in the beauty and cosmetics industry all over the world for its special and unique properties. Honey has powerful healing properties which refresh and heal the body’s cells and tissues. When used on facial skin, it cleanses and softens, leaving it fresh and attractive. Honey is also rich in many essential vitamins and minerals, including the B vitamins, and is a good water absorbent; all these are qualities that make honey so superb for the skin.

The homemade honey facial mask uses honey in a variety of mixture combinations. Based on the type of skin one would like to use the honey facial mask for, whether oily, dry, combination, sensitive, or normal skin, one can mix the honey with a variety of other easily available ingredients. These include sour cream, olive oil, fruits, oatmeal, and eggs.

Here are some of the most well-known and effective honey facial recipes:

Honey can be used on its own: first rinse the face with warm water to open up the facial pores. Next apply a generous layer of honey, massage into the skin, and leave for about 20 - 30 minutes. Rinse off with warm water at first, then with cool water to re-close the facial skin pores.

This recipe works best when used consistently, at least two times every week.

Equal amounts of honey and ground oatmeal can also be mixed to form a paste and applied as above. This recipe is excellent for all skin types.

Honey can be warmed (using a water bath) and mixed with one egg yolk and some olive oil and applied to the face. This recipe works best for dry skin.

Warmed honey can again be mixed with many other fruits and herbs and used as a face mask. Aloe vera, papaya, apple, banana, carrot, grapes, and strawberry are just some of the many ingredients that you can add to a honey facial to give a potent, healthy, and refreshing therapy to your skin. The absorptive properties of honey make it particularly effective as a skin moisturizer and it leaves the skin soft, and absolutely radiant. It is very important to know, though, that it is the consistent use of the honey facial mask that will produce real and lasting results for your skin.

Considering the little monetary cost to create healthy, natural facial recipes that your skin will love when compared with the other chemical-laden, high brand, expensive products out there, it really is no surprise that more and more people each day are turning to creating their own customized skin care and beauty treatments at home.

By doing this, they can control the type of nutrition they feed their skin, something which is very important as the skin is the largest organ of the body. They will certainly avoid harsh chemicals in their skin care products and the problems they create, and they will not be including substances that provoke allergic and other unwelcome reactions. You too can do the same today. Get access to these proven effective homemade skin care therapies today!
