As all women out there, I totally love beauty spas. These are a beautiful and magical place where we can relax and enjoy amazing treatments. However, as they are quite expensive, sometimes we need to resort to homemade treatments. And in the case of acne problems, this is not easy. Thus, I tried many homemade version of effective face masks until I managed to find the perfect one. Thus, if you are on a budget, fight off acne problems with this DIY honey and vitamin C face mask. It will totally be worth your time.
Personally, I love how my face skin feels after using this homemade mask. Because the skin is naturally very slightly acidic, it needs specific natural ingredients to get optimal skin health and elasticity. I already love using Vitamin C on my skin as a serum but decided to combine Vitamin C with another great ingredient as honey. Moreover, this recipe also contains organic brown sugar for a gentle scrub. Lastly, the tiny drop of lavender oil will go a long way in smoothing the skin and reduce acne prone inflammation.
Hence, here are the ingredients you will need to prepare this natural DIY honey and vitamin C face mask:
– 1 teaspoon raw manuka honey or organic honey
– 1/2 teaspoon organic brown sugar
– 1/2 teaspoon vitamin C powder for longer shelf life
– 1-2 drops of high-quality lavender essential oil
– apple cider vinegar for rinsing
Thus, all you have to do is mix all the ingredients together. You can use this firstly as a gentle rub, massaging your face in a circular motion for about 2 minutes. However, do not rush to rinse it off, let it sit for another 5 minutes on your face to get all the benefits. Then, rinse it off with lukewarm water, using a washcloth.
Now, for the last stage of this treatment, you can also rinse your face again with apple cider vinegar. This is, of course, an optional step but personally, I find it to be very refreshing. Then, simply rinse everything with water for how much you need.
