I am a big fan of facials for taking care of my skin. But, it’s hard to get myself to a spa regularly. So I try to include some simple DIY beauty tricks in my routine. Recently, I had an indulgent spa date with my creative blogger friend Erin from Color Me Styled. It was a fun afternoon where we tried out a couple easy homemade DIY facial recipes. I picked one of my all-time favorite one: homemade honey and lemon face mask. The super simple face mask has just two ingredients: Honey and Lemon. It does wonders for my skin leaving it feeling fresh, clean, and moisturized. Lemons are filled with good stuff which removes dead skin cells and help clear up the skin, while honey is a natural antioxidant and antibacterial.What you’ll need:
1 tbsp. Honey
Spoon Mix one tablespoon of honey and half a squeezed lemon in to a bowl. Apply all over your face, avoiding the eye area.
Now, let your skin soak up all this goodness for 15-30 minutes (depending on how sensitive your skin is). I usually like to catch up on my magazine reading and just relax while the mask works it’s magic.Ofcourse it’s always a great idea to take some mask-on selfies with a fun gf. Wash away with warm water, finishing with one splash of cold water to close your pores. Pat gently with a towel to dry and follow up with your favorite moisturizer. And tada, you have a happy-feeling face. 🙂Erin picked out a nourishing Egg white and lemon mask. Check out her blog for more details. There is a bonus DIY scrub recipe in her post.
