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.

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.

Ideally you should begin this treatment with a facial steam to open up your pores which will enable the masque to penetrate more deeply. Apply a thin film onto your face and neck and relax for about 30 minutes. Wash off with warm water and observe how fine lines seem to vanish and your face appears more vibrant and supple.

A gentle masque such as this can be used two or three times a week.
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.

Raw Honey and Lavender Facial Masque comes in a 2 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!"



********HONEY'S HEALING PROPERTIES********
Honey was a conventional therapy in fighting infection up until the early 20th century.
The use of honey in wound and burn care is regaining popularity as researchers learn exactly how raw honey can help with healing. 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.
