DIY Honey Face Mask

There are countless skincare routines on the internet, but how do you decide, which mask or scrub is right for your face? We're all trying to achieve that perfect, glowing complexion without putting too many chemicals or unknown ingredients on our skin. That's why we turn to Raw Honey.

Real, raw, unprocessed honey is a key ingredient in many cosmetic products because it offers amazing benefits to the body, like antibacterial elements that treat acne, skin-saving antioxidants that slow down aging, and anti-inflammatory properties that speed up cell healing for blemishes or eczema. 

Raw honey is also a natural exfoliator, which means applying it to your face takes off dry, dull skin - especially when the honey has started to crystallize. Those rough sugar crystals will act as an all natural scrub and clarify pores. Adding bee pollen into the honey will add an additional exfoliating property, while also allowing the many vitamins and minerals in the pollen to seep into your skin.

Whether you're looking for a DIY solution to your skincare routine to cut out all of the unnecessary ingredients, or looking for a powerful skin treatment to help regain your glow - Raw Honey will do the trick!


Not sure which honey is best for your routine?

Washington Buckwheat contains higher levels of iron and zinc than other honey, which aid in blood flow and anti-inflammation.

Oregon Meadowfoam contains large pollen particles, which create large sugar crystals in the raw honey. These larger sugar crystals will add to the exfoliating benefits.
