15. Salt and honey facial scrub

Whilst this is theoretically not a face mask, but more of a facial scrub I am going to share it with you. If you leave it on your face for a few minutes it goes from a scrub to a facial mask.

The really cool thing about this facial scrub/mask is that you can make a fair amount of it at a time and share it as gifts with your friends and family. Whilst the two ingredients are so simple, please do not be fooled by its simplicity.  They both are really incredibly powerful skin enhances.

Honey is a natural healer and is loaded with antioxidants. It’s a fantastic moisturizer and skin soother, and these are just a few of its benefits. You can do a quick online search and be amazed by how fantastic it really is. Salt, on the other hand, is much an often ignore skin element. Have you ever noticed that when you have spent hours in the sea salt water your skin is never pruned or wrinkled?  That’s because salt actually helps your skin retain its moisture. Salt is loaded with magnesium which helps reduce water retention (like bloating or puffiness) in your body.

What you will need

  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup salt
  • For fragrance, you can add in a drop or four of essential oil

Add all the ingredients together and mix thoroughly. Apply evenly to your face and neck and gently massage in circular motions for about 5 minutes. Then leave for a further 5 minutes. Wash of thoroughly and dry your face.  Just have a look at how radiant your skin looks.
