We all have those weeks where our skin just won’t get under control. It’s either dry skin, acne, dark spots, black heads..the list goes on. Frankly, it’s inevitable. We are all going to suffer from a breakout or two but that doesn’t mean that it’s untreatable! Most skin care issues can be treated right in the comfort of our own kitchen. In fact, you can treat a handful of skincare issues with only honey and epsom salt (you may have to leave the kitchen for the epsom salt).
Simply said, Honey and Epsom Salt have amazing benefits for skin. What benefits, you ask?:
- Antimicrobial (helps destroy the nasty bacteria on your skin)
- Great for fighting aging (wrinkles/dark spots!) and skin damage
- Reduces infection/inflammation
- Soothes irritated/acneic skin
Oh, and Epsom Salt?…
- Flushes toxins from skin
- Exfoliates dead skin
- Removes black heads
- Cleanses skin
- Treats acne
So, are you ready to make a wonderful healing mask your skin? For the male readers, this mask isn’t just for the ladies! It will work wonders on your skin, as well!
- 2 TBSP Honey
- 2 TBSP Epsom Salt
Mix the honey and epsom salt until well combined. Feel free to add more or less honey or epsom salt. (Both ingredients are super gentle on your skin!). Gently apply the mixture to your face and allow to sit for 30+ minutes. Be prepared for dripping honey! (Keep a towel handy!). Rinse and apply your favorite moisturizer.
Peace, Love & Coconuts!
