- Test a tiny area of your face with a dab of honey. Some people have allergic reactions to honey. You do not want your entire face covered with honey only to find out you have an allergy to it. Place a small amount of honey on the jawline and let it sit for a couple of minutes. If you do not notice any sort of reaction, you can continue.
Warm the honey between your hands to thin it out. Allowing the honey to warm first will let it transfer to your face easier.
- Rub the honey into the skin of the face in a thin layer.
- Wait at least 15 minutes. This will allow the honey to work into the pores and put it’s antibacterial and anti-inflammatory powers to work. You can opt to leave the honey mask on even longer if you wish; the heat of your skin will prevent the honey from drying out.
- Rinse off the mask with warm water. Avoid rubbing the face; instead, splash the face with water. For even better results, rinse your face during a warm shower.
