Have you done a honey face mask? They are amazing.

I love the sweet aroma of honey, it has such a warm and cozy feeling. Honey is a natural moisturizer and it’s antibacterial properties will fight against skin irritations and blemishes. I use an unpasteurized raw honey for my face masks so my skin can soak up as many enzymes and nutrients as possible. It’s an easy, natural, and inexpensive way to get glowing skin, and it’s gentle enough to use on your face daily.

I have a jar of honey dedicated to face masks that I don’t use for consuming. I dip my fingers right into the jar and dab big globs onto my cheeks, forehead, and chin. Then I go back and gently smooth the honey evenly across my entire face, leaving a circle around my eyes and mouth. You can leave it on for as long as you like, or as long as you have to spare (5 minutes – 1 hour). I usually keep it on for 20-30 minutes. What can you do with honey on your face? Fix your breakfast, wash the dishes, floss your teeth, read a book. I like to have a cup of tea. If you have the time to dedicate to a face mask, then you should take full advantage of this time. Honey is very soothing, so let this be a meditative routine that you’ve taken the time to do for yourself.

This was definitely my stickiest photo shoot yet! I made such a mess taking these pictures but it was so much fun. I bought the little honey stick from a kitchen shop downtown for $2.00, definitely worth it. Even if I never actually use it again.

As always, thank you for reading. I hope you get a chance to put some honey on your face. And remember to thank the little honey bees who collected the pollen it took to make the honey. They’re so cute and they work so hard.
