3 Simple Honey Face Masks

While raw honey is lovely, you can also mix and match other food-based ingredients to tailor your mask to your unique skin type. Below are three recipes for honey face masks designed with specific skin types in mind:

3 Simple Honey Face Masks

1. Honey Face Mask for Acne-Prone Skin

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

  •  teaspoons raw honey

Mix honey and cinnamon together, and apply to your face. Leave the mask on for 10-30 minutes. The antibacterial properties of both honey and cinnamon are especially beneficial for acne-prone skin. (Cinnamon can occasionally be irritating if your skin is really sensitive, so you might want to do a patch test on the back of your hand first.)

2. Honey Face Mask for Dry Skin

  • teaspoon mashed avocado

  •  teaspoon plain whole milk yogurt

  •  teaspoon raw honey

Mix ingredients in a small bowl until smooth. Spread the mixture over your face and let it sit for 20-30 minutes before washing it off. The fats in the avocado and whole milk yogurt are deeply moisturizing to the skin, while the lactic acid in the yogurt smooths your skin, refines pores, and stimulates collagen production.

3. Honey Face Mask for Sensitive Skin

  • teaspoon aloe vera gel

  •  teaspoons raw honey

Stir the aloe and honey together and apply over your face. Leave it on for about 10-20 minutes. Aloe soothes inflammation and calms your skin, perfect for those with sensitive, irritated skin.
