People have used honey to help maintain healthy skin for thousands of years. This is not surprising as honey contains powerful antioxidants with antiseptic and antibacterial properties. You can read more about the wonderful uses of honey in my article 13 ways to use honey for your health.

Honey face masks are soothing for inflamed skin, antibacterial for acne breakouts and hydrating for dry or damaged skin. Honey can help treat minor acne by attacking the bacteria that cause the outbreaks while moisturizing the skin to aid rejuvenation. This is because honey also has a hygroscopic nature, which means when exposed to air, it naturally absorbs moisture in from the air, and thus helps keep the skin hydrated, fresh and prevents drying.

Here are some easy recipes for honey face masks:

Honey face mask for dry to normal skin

1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp of base oil such as jojoba, almond, olive, or avocado oil
1 mashed banana OR ½ mashed avocado

Mix well all the ingredients until you get a consistency of purée. Apply to your skin and leave on for 10-15 minutes and then rinse off.

Honey face mask to treat acne

1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp of base oil such as jojoba, almond, olive, or avocado oil
3 drops tea tree or lavender essential oils

Mix well all the ingredients and apply to your skin and leave on for at least 20 minutes before rinsing off.

1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp aloe vera juice or gel

Using honey, and not just for eating, is also one of the 70 habits featured in my e-book 70 Powerful Habits For A Great Health which will guide you how to take positive steps to improve your wellness and overall health.

Another great use for honey is to make golden honey which is a strong natural antibiotic that can be used for bacterial and viral infections, as an anti-inflammatory that eases seasonal allergies, and as a general immune booster:

  1. I use cinnamon, honey, nutmeg, and lemon juice as a mask every single night. It’s currently on as I type. It’s made my skin softer, lightened my acne scars, reduced redness, and is slowly but surely clearing up my acne. I’ve been using this for almost a week now and I’m very excited about it.
