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.
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.
