Rejuvenate and replenish your skin with nature's gift from bees.

Honey is a natural humectant, that moisturizes and leaves even tired skin incredibly smooth.

Masks are an important part of a skin care routine as they deep cleanse the skin and take away dead skin cells.

Remember to use a mask once a week and keep using them. It only takes a short amount of time each week to be on the right road for clean healthy looking skin.

When applying masks it is important to stay away from the eye area as the skin is very delicate and you do not need to put pressure on that skin and to avoid entering the eye. Use local and organic ingredients where possible.

Honey is fabulous for normal skin types. Place a cloth in warm water and apply to face and neck. Smear on honey, and leave for 15 to 30 minutes. Rinse off with warm water, then use cool water. Use once per week. This will leave your skin soft and glowing.

For dry skin types mix honey with oats, yogurt and ground almonds. Apply to face, leave for five minutes and wash with lukewarm water.

Mix together 1 tablespoon honey, 1 egg yolk, 1/2 teaspoon almond oil and 1 tablespoon yogurt. Honey stimulates and smoothes, egg and almond oil penetrate and moisturize, and yogurt refines and helps tighten pores. Apply to face, leave for five minutes and wash with lukewarm water.

The yoghurt gives the mask a creamy base and a source of lactic acid (AHA) which helps to exfoliate your skin. It also helps reduce bacteria on the skin.

Another variation is to mix together; 2 tablespoons organic honey, 2 tablespoons Sweet Almond oil, 5 drops essential oil of Rose and 1 drop Vitamin E oil. Massage onto clean face and neck with fingertips. Relax for 15 minutes, then rinse off with lukewarm water. Gently pat dry to reveal a fresh, soft complexion.

For oily skin, mix 1/2 cup fine oatmeal with enough honey to form a stiff paste, adding a little rose water if it is too stiff. Cleanse the face and apply the mask, leaving it on for about 30 minutes, then remove with warm water and a soft cloth. -ecobites
