High Heels and Training Wheels: DIY Honey Face Mask

DIY Honey Face Mask


My very first post ever was on the DIY Orange Juice Face Mask and I did that one first because it was my most recent discovery but this one is my absolute favorite.



I was reluctant to hop on the natural, DIY bandwagon at first because I figured if this stuff really works then there's money to be made there. Why aren't companies using these ingredients in their skin care products? But after spending mucho dollars on all those masks/cleansers in the store with no improvement in my skin I thought what the hell, right? I'm glad I did because this works better than anything!




Honey is antibacterial. It moisturizes and acts as a natural inflammatory, which reduces redness and swelling.




Cinnamon is great for exfoliation. It will slough off dead skin cells and clear pores while being extremely gentle.




Lemon juice is a great astringent and it fades dark marks. It also wards off oxidation; think like the browning of an apple. It does the same thing for your skin.







Uses: soothe, smooth, heal, even out skin tone AND help remove blackheads


1.) Mix 2 tbsp of honey with 1 tbsp of lemon juice and 1 tsp of cinnamon

2.) Apply to your face and rub in gentle circles

3.) Let the mask set for 20-30 minutes

4.) Wash it off with warm water while scrubbing in gentle circles (again)

5.) Finish with your favorite face lotion (I use good ole Coconut Oil)



I never cease to be amazed when I use this mask. My face is always brighter and softer and my dark spots fade a little more with each use. I make this mask in big batches because I use it so frequently (about once a week). If you choose to do this, just double/triple the amount of each ingredient (we're not baking a cake here, just eyeball it and you'll be fine). It is a really runny mask so don't think you've done it wrong. I'm telling you though, it is so worth it to check it out!


So have you tried it yet? Let me know how it worked out!
