FOR DRY SKIN: MANUKA HONEY MASK WITH YOGURT (OR VEGAN ALTERNATIVE)
Calling for only two ingredients, this mask is super easy to mix up. The Manuka Honey in this mask is soothing and hydrating, while the fatty acids found in yogurt (and avocado, if you are making the mask vegan) are moisturizing. The lactic acids in yogurt are also beneficial as they are known to help clear away dead skin cells and give your skin a clean, refreshed look.
1 teaspoon Wedderspoon Manuka Honey
1 teaspoon plain yogurt (or half an avocado)
Mix all ingredients and gently apply to face. Leave on for 20 minutes to an hour and then carefully wash away with a gentle face cleanser and warm water.
NORMAL SKIN: ONE INGREDIENT MANUKA HONEY MASK
DIY face mask recipes don't get any simpler than this! Manuka Honey alone is hydrating and will thoroughly cleanse your skin. It can also help balance your skin's pH level, reduce redness and sooth your skin, leaving you with an all-natural glow.
Wet your face and gently spread Wedderspoon Manuka Honey across your entire face (about one teaspoon should suffice). Let the Manuka Honey sit, untouched, on your skin for 20 minutes to an hour (perhaps take that bath while you wait!). When ready, gently wash the Manuka Honey off your face using a gentle face cleanser and warm water.
