Benefits of Honey for DIY Face Masks

Honey has so many different facial cleansing powers.

It speeds up your skin healing process and reduces inflammation so that way if you have any blemishes or eczema, honey can help.

It’s so effective at speeding up the healing process, that it is used in many clinical settings.

Since it is so effective in the healing process, it can help fade acne scars and dark spots.

Honey is a natural exfoliator.

When you apply it to your face it removes the dull, dry, skin cells, and reveals the new youthful, glowing, ones underneath.

This helps you to have brighter skin.

But you can’t apply just any old type of honey to your face.

To make the perfect DIY honey face mask, there are a couple of types of honey that are best to use on your skin.

Which Honey Is Best For DIY Honey Face Masks?

With all of this hype about using honey on your face to help your skin look its best, you are probably so excited and ready to get started, right?

But just wait a second before you do!

Because you cannot just use any old honey on your beautiful face.

You only deserve the best,c so you want to make sure the honey has the most benefits.

So what kind of honey should you buy?

Well, there are two types that I recommend and one that I buy faithfully.

The two types are manuka honey and raw, organic, unfiltered, honey.

Manuka Honey

Manuka honey has many scientific studies behind it that show it is amazing for skin.

It is checked for its potency by experts so you can always make sure that you have the best.

It has superior antimicrobial properties and contains hydrogen peroxide.

This makes it a very strong antibacterial agent, so it is very effective against viral infections.

But because it is stronger, it is a bit pricier than the other recommendation I have.

The other type of honey that I recommend is raw, organic, unfiltered, honey.

Raw Unfiltered Honey

Raw honey can be collected from many different plants and places, which makes it less expensive

It has many effective, healing, and antimicrobial properties.

It is not as powerful as manuka but it is still very effective, and perfect for your face.

If you can’t tell, I recommend using raw honey so you can still get the amazing cleansing properties from honey and save a few dollars too.

So now that you know which honey to buy, let’s get into the 13 different DIY Honey face mask.
