Welcome back to the blog for Liv Northgate! Our previous post covered self-care basics that can benefit everyone in our Gilbert, AZ apartment community. Today we wanted to expand on that by sharing the uses and benefits of honey in face masks. Try these suggestions based on your skin type to improve your complexion!

One Ingredient Face Mask (For All Skin Types)

All you will need is a spoonful of raw honey for this simple, skin improving face mask. Make sure skin is clean and free of any makeup and apply a spoonful of raw honey spread out evenly over your entire face and leave it on for 20 minutes to dry. Then rinse the dried honey off your face. Repeat two-three times a week for best results. Because honey is gentle on the skin, even those with sensitive skin can benefit from its cleansing and purifying effects. 

Apple Honey Mask (For Normal Skin)

You will need a cored and sliced apple and two tablespoons of honey for this mask. Place the apple pieces in a food processor to chop them up. Add the honey and refrigerate the mixture for 10 minutes. Pat the cooled mixture onto your face, tapping until the honey feels tacky. Wear the mask for 30 minutes and then rinse off. 

Avocado & Honey Mask (For Dry Skin)

Make this face mask with two tablespoons of avocado flesh, two tablespoons of honey, and one egg yolk. This hydrating mask also has anti-aging benefits and a lightening effect. Place all the ingredients in a blender or mash and mix them together by hand in a bowl. Use your fingers to spread the mask evenly over your face and neck and leave it on for at least 30 minutes before rinsing off. 

Almond Yogurt Honey Mask (For Tired Skin)

Mix together six ounces of plain yogurt, ¼ ounce of finely crushed almonds, two teaspoons of honey, and two teaspoons of wheat germ oil until a smooth paste forms. Apply the mixture to your skin and keep on for 20 minutes. 

Honey-Papaya Mask (For Oily Skin)

Combine ⅓ cup of cocoa powder, three teaspoons of heavy cream, ⅓ cup of ripe papaya, ¼ cup of honey, and three teaspoons of oatmeal powder. Apply the mixture to your face and wear for 10 mins. Wash the mask off with warm water. This anti-aging mask helps to heal, nourish, draw out impurities, and balance the pH level of your skin. Using this mask will also improve the radiance and softness of your skin.
