The Simple Things In Life That Make You Glow…

Spring air feels fresh throughout your body. Why not give your skin a fresh makeover??? I noticed the sales girl in my office – her skin looked amazing. I literally said, “You look so good, what are you doing?”
Who would have thought this simple little recipe would make her skin glow. Read this DIY Honey & Lemon Face Mask below…

Lemon Honey Face Mask

Actress Kelly Kruger goes on the hunt for the face mask of all face masks: one that will lighten, tighten and brighten – and leaves the beauty counter empty handed. Yet, from her refrigerator, she concocts the perfect facial remedy. Feast your eyes – and your face – on this: a natural, homemade face mask that will soothe, smooth, heal and even out skin tone for under $7 dollars! And the genius of DIY beauty products is that they can be made with contents that you likely have in your kitchen.

Explains Kelly: “When I think of lemon and honey together, the first thing that comes to mind is a soothing tea for a sore throat. I never would have thought that these 2 ingredients would be the answer to all of my beauty prayers. I have really sensitive, acne-prone skin and I have spent thousands of dollars trying to find the right creams and serums to help with my problem. Until a really sweet lady at a Neiman Marcus counter (where I was yet again going to spend more money on stuff that probably wouldn’t work) gave me this amazing advice:

Honey is a natural antibacterial and anti-infammatory. It absorbs impurities from the pores and the skin. Ancient beauties used honey and milk on their skin regularly to keep their complexion looking young, radiant and smooth. You can use honey as a wash, toner or mask. And you can mix it with so many other ingredients depending on your needs (apples, pumpkin, papaya. yogurt). It’s quite versatile.

Lemon brightens and exfoliates. It’s great for acne prone skin, age and sun spots or uneven skin tone. It is also a natural source of vitamin C and rich in alpha hydroxy acids.

Here’s how to make the DIY Honey/ Lemon Mask:
Squeeze 1/2 a lemon (organic is always better) into a bowl, add 2 tbsp of honey (0rganic, raw, natural ). Mix it with a spoon until it’s a liquid consistency. Apply it all over a clean face avoiding eye area. *Also make sure that  your hair is pulled back away from your face as the mask is rather sticky!  Leave on for 15-20 min and rinse off. If you’re feeling really adventurous, try and sleep with it on.”
