How to Make Great and Easy Homemade Honey Face Masks

People have used honey to help maintain healthy skin for thousands of years. This is not surprising as honey contains powerful antioxidants with antiseptic and antibacterial properties.

Honey face masks are soothing for inflamed skin, antibacterial for acne breakouts and hydrating for dry or damaged skin. Honey can help treat minor acne by attacking the bacteria that cause the outbreaks while moisturizing the skin to aid rejuvenation. This is because honey also has a hygroscopic nature, which means when exposed to air, it naturally absorbs moisture in from the air, and thus helps keep the skin hydrated, fresh and prevents drying.
