When life gives you lemons..

….Make a face mask!

Taking care of your skin is important, we all know that by now. What a lot of us don’t know is how to do it on our own. How do you get radiant skin without relying on expensive products made by someone you don’t even know? Keep reading my friend, I shall show you the path to redemption (…wut?)

Homemade Lemon & Honey Face Mask

All you’ll need for this is a lemon, or lemon juice, & some honey!

Why lemon & honey? The honey will fight off evil bacteria & send your skin some antioxidant powers. The lemon has LOTS of vitamin C to brighten your face, plus exfoliates like no other.

The first step is to wash your face with a cleanser of your choice & some warm water to open those lovely pores.

In a small bowl, mix about a tablespoon of each ingredient. Exact measurements aren’t important- just make sure you have equal parts of each & enough to cover your face. Also, try to avoid getting lemon seeds in the bowl because they are very annoying to get out of such a shallow liquid..

*Put a small amount on your hand first to make sure this mixture won’t irritate your skin. Things could get pretty awkward if you find out you have an allergy this way..*

Apply a thin layer to your (dry) face. Avoid your eye area, or don’t, but things can get painful pretty quickly if you don’t..

(Yes, there are children in the bottom of my bowl… #squadgoals)

Let the mask dry & rinse it off after 10-15 minutes. Then apply your moisturizer of choice to keep your skin from getting thirsty.

Enjoy your fresh face!
