Honey and Lemon Facial Mask

Happy Monday Guys, I know I have been on a bit on a skincare kick, so I apologize for the lack of diversity. On my blog I just like to share with my followers what I am into at the time being. I am saving up my cash to go spring shopping, so I will have a post sharing my new styles with you soon! I just finished my Philosophy quiz online that I promised myself I would do, even though I hatttttttte philosophy, but I did get a 100! Sorry for blabbing.Anyways, this is a honey and lemon facial mask that has been doing great things for my face. I haven't bought any new skincare products because I love the control I get from making my own. I want it to be known that any of my recipes I offer on my blog can be easily adjusted for your skin type. I have oily/combination skin that is sensitive..so a lot of the ingredients can be removed..lemon, lime, tomato, witch hazel..etc. any of those ingredients I use in my concoctions are all natural astrigents to be used for oil control..with that said...if you have normal to dry skin, perhaps you might want to skip these!!
Ingredients...

1 Tablespoon of Wild Harvest Organic Wildflower Honey ( Shaw's) You must used organic!! Processed honey won't have the same effect
Lemon Juice ( freshly squeezed from a half of a lemon)

Lemon Juice is an excellent natural toner which cleanses the pores. It also has natural bleaching properties..so it is excellent for smoothing out dark marks...such as acne scars...I would know!!
Honey is an excellent source of moisture to nourish the skin..no matter your skin type..It won't clog your pores..honey is a natural antispetic...it helps ease inflamed/ sore blemishes..
I put this mask on one of two ways, depending on my skin...sometimes I will put the lemon juice on first to my face..let sit for two minutes, and then apply honey. Another way is to mix the lemon juice onto the face and leave on for 15 minutes.
You will love the results!!!

Happy Monday everybody...hope it isn't too terrible.
