Natural Aloe & Honey Facemask
With the New Year quickly approaching many of us are starting to think of resolutions we can make to help shape the upcoming year into one that makes us feel our best. For most of us, these may include physical changes aimed at boosting our health. And with that in mind we have a quick, simple and best of all, natural face mask to help boost our confidence and skin health.
The Holidays have a way of wrecking the skin. Stress, cold and all of the delicious but not necessarily healthy food we consume can and will leave tell-tale signs on the skin. So if you have a few moments you can whip this together and pamper yourself for making it through another holiday season!
This mask calls for a 1:1 ratio of raw honey and pure aloe vera gel to be mixed together. The aloe, which packs a powerful punch of vitamins A & C as well as antioxidants, can be from a bottle ( as long as it is pure, no chemicals added) or it can be directly from the plant. Either method will give you gorgeous aloe vera gel. If you chose to take directly from the plant, make sure you hang the leaf with the cut-side down to allow all of the yellow colored liquid to drain before you harvest the gel.
It is also important to note that the honey will need to be raw, because in this state it is a natural anti-fungal and moisturizer. Using less expensive and processed honey just won’t deliver the same quality you are looking for and deserve!
Once you have these two powerful ingredients mixed simply apply to the external skin of the face and neck and leave on for approximately 20-25 minutes. Once the time has passed, wash off with warm water and voila, you have much happier and healthier face.
