Enjoy a honey mask facial as part of your anti-aging skin care. Ideal for all skin types, this facial treatment utilizes raw honey to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve the radiance of your complexion. Raw honey masks help protect your skin from free radicals due to the high antioxidant level.

Facial masks are wonderful for deep cleaning in that they penetrate below the surface and draw out impurities. Honey masks are nourishing, moisturizing and gentle enough to not strip the skin of its natural protective oils.

Let the bees help you maintain a beautiful complexion. Wildflower and clover honey already have the beneficial attributes of these herbs within the honey itself.

Honey is a natural humectant which means it retains moisture and plumps up skin cells. It helps to rebuild the moisture level in the skin without making it oily. The high sugar, low protein content create an acidic environment with limited availability of water therefore bacteria cannot thrive.
When you wash the honey off your skin, a small amount remains in the pores. As a result, the sugars in the honey attract water from the air, which keeps your skin hydrated.

Raw honey has a different look than pasteurized commercial honey. It has not been heated or filtered therefore it looks a bit cloudy and has flecks of the activities of the hive, such as honeycomb bits and pollen. Having a high anti-oxidant level and being the natural enzymes have not been destroyed by heat, raw honey is a much healthier product.

Glucose oxidase is an enzyme that when combined with water produces hydrogen peroxide, a mild antiseptic. Honey also contains antioxidants and flavonoids that may function as antibacterial agents. It calms down troubled skin without irritation. These antiseptic properties help prevent the growth of microorganisms that cause blackheads.

Lavender has been called the 'mother of all essences'. It has a comforting and calming effect just by its smell. A very important property of lavender is that it stimulates the regeneration of damaged tissues. It adds its own vital force to ours and wounds, minor burns, and bruising tend to heal very quickly.

How to use:
Ideally, if you have clogged pores, you should begin this treatment with a facial steam to open up your pores which will enable the mask to penetrate more deeply. You do that by bringing about two cups of water to a boil and adding that to a bowl (add a tea bag if you'd like (black tea or chamomile is good). Be sure to have a clean, washed face. Then cover your head with a towel and lean over the bowl to trap the steam. Relax for about 10 minutes.
Dab away the moisture a bit and apply just a thin film of the honey mask over your face (you don't want it all drippy), avoid the eyes since the lavender essential oil can be strong. Again relax for about 30 minutes.
Wash off with warm water, dry and use a toner if you'd like to close the pores. Vinegar toners are great in that they balance the skin pH which help with breakouts. Then moisturize if you need.
Honey masks don't dry the skin like clay masks can so you can use it three or so times a week. You'll know if it's too often if your skin gets red and irritated from the potency of the essential oils.

Honey naturally crystallizes with time, which is normal, especially with raw honey which hasn't been heated and processed. You can then use as you would a sugar scrub, by applying a bit to finger tips or facial cloth and use gentle circular motions to cleanse. If you don't like the crystals, just microwave for a few seconds or gently heat in a warm water bath.

External use only.

Keep in mind:
The cause of acne is not the same for everyone. If your breakouts are brought on by bacteria, then the use of honey to combat those blemishes will in all likelihood help, but if your blemishes are triggered by medication or lousy lifestyle, then though the honey will soothe your complexion, it may not be able to get rid of it for good.

First time users:
Please do a patch test on a small area before using all over your face to observe any signs of an allergic reaction to honey.


Raw Honey and Lavender Facial Masque is available in a choice of a 1/2 oz., 1 oz., 2 oz., or a 4 oz. plastic jar


"Many masks claim to improve texture and heal blemishes, however, only some can follow through after the first two nights, let alone the first night! Seeing a mask with so few ingredients can leave people skeptical, because in today's beauty world, it seems the more ingredients a product has, the more the consumer believes the product will cure all their woes! Trust me when I say that this product soothes inflammation, hydrates skin, and is an excellent night-time spot-treatment. Your skin will thank you!"

"Shipment was quick,bonus, but this product is awesome! Put it on tonight, although very sticky (as honey is!) It was so easy to rinse off! Left my face feeling so soft and smooth. Definite reorder!!!"



********HONEY'S HEALING PROPERTIES********

The use of honey in wound care is regaining popularity as researchers learn exactly how raw honey can help with wound care. When applied to the skin, honey may serve as a barrier to moisture and keep skin from sticking to dressings. Cover the area with a piece of gauze and change the dressing with new honey every 12 hours.

Information below is gathered from the following two informative links. Learn about the studies and information gathered with the use of raw honey for wounds, burns and in the prevention of infection

Honey was a conventional therapy in fighting infection up until the early 20th century, at which time its use slowly vanished with the advent of penicillin. Topical use of honey has a long history. In fact, it is considered one of the oldest known wound dressings. Honey was used by the ancient Greek physician Dioscorides in 50 A.D. for sunburn and infected wounds. Honey’s healing properties are mentioned in the Bible, Koran, and Torah.

Now the use of honey in wound care is regaining popularity again, as researchers are determining exactly how honey can help fight serious skin infections.

When considering using honey for the treatment of wounds, it's extremely important to understand that there's a major difference between raw honey—and especially Manuka honey, which is in a class of its own—and the highly processed "Grade A" type honey you find in most grocery stores. The latter is more akin to high fructose corn syrup, which is more likely to increase infection, and should never be used to treat topical wounds! (It also will not offer you the same health benefits as raw honey when consumed.)

If you're considering using honey to treat a mild burn, sunburn, or small wound at home, make sure to use either Manuka or raw honey. Like the Manuka honey, high quality RAW honey will help draw fluid away from your wound and suppress the growth of microorganisms. Part of what gives raw honey its antibacterial properties is an enzyme called glucose oxidase, which the worker bees excrete into the nectar. This enzyme releases low levels of hydrogen peroxide when the honey makes contact with your wound. A chemical reaction between the honey and the tissue also makes your wound smell good. Heated honey will destroy this perishable enzyme which is why you want to only use raw honey for this application.
