Honey face mask for acne and acne scars is one of the simplest and effective ways to treat skin problems at home. Acne gives us not a physical discomfort only. It spoils our mood. Who likes to look in the mirror and see horrible acne on his own face?
How to use honey for acne
I have already written in details about the benefits of honey for skin care. Antibacterial and healing properties of this product are the main values in getting rid of acne. It prevents the infection spreading over the skin and promotes quick healing of acne scars.
I offer to add fresh lemon juice tea tree oil to the honey in order to enhance the effect. This aromatic oil is successfully using in facial masks.
Check out the allergies reaction if you have not used this oil before. To do that, smear a drop of oil on the bottom of the cheekbone and check in few minutes if irritation appears.
How to make a acne facial
- 1 Tbsp of honey
- 1/2 tsp of lemon juice
- 3-4 drops of tea tree oil
Use liquid honey. Heat up honey if it is crystallized or add some hot water.
Thoroughly clean the face. Do not use ordinary toilet soap. It dries the skin. Wash your face with special cosmetics or lotions.
Drip tea tree oil and lemon juice into the mixture and mix it.
Apply honey mask on your face without touching the hair and eyes.
Wait for 20 minutes while mask treats your skin. While you can listen to relaxing music, read a book or watch TV. But do not forget that the cosmetic procedure is not finished!
Remove the honey with room temperature water. Finish washing by splashing with cold water.
Do you feel freshness of the skin? The tea tree oil provides that feeling.
