Gorgeous Skin At Home!

Hi everyone! If there's such a thing as "beauty secret" this would be mine - although I don't have beauty "secrets" from you guys :) THIS face mask however contains honey which is so beneficial for the skin. It also has three other skin loving ingredients which make this face mask / scrub so great for the skin! I've been doing this face mask about once a week and my skin is feeling so smooth, clear and soft. It's great for all skin types, but I'd especially recommend this for people dealing with breakouts, dark marks and scarring. Honey just by itself is also really good! Been doing pure honey masks for years, it always leaves my skin with a nice glow. This face mask will get rid of dead skin cells, remove impurities and brighten the skin.

I hope you guys enjoy this video and find it helpful. Summary of ingredients & benefits of each one are below!


The ingredients needed from your kitchen!

Ingredients
- 1 lemon
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 tbsp olive oil 

Benefits:
Lemon
- Natural source of Vitamin C, which boosts collagen production, evens out skin tone, lightens dark spots and brightens the skin
- It contains a mild form of Alpha Hydroxy Acid, great for exfoliation
- Its a natural astringent which tightens pores

Sugar
- Natural exfoliator 
- Contains glycolic acid which exfoliates to remove dead skin cells and evens out skin tone 

Honey
- Antibacterial properties remove and prevent impurities 
- Natural humectant keeps skin hydrated
- Natural source of anti-oxidants, which helps prevent aging skin

Olive Oil 
- Very high in vitamin E which soothes and calms 
- Naturally moisturizes the skin

  8. Hi Annie do you still use the PMD device.? And how often should I do a mask a week ? Should I do the honey mask and a clay mask once a week and also use the PMD or is that over doing it? Help I don't know what would be best.

  11. I'm definitely going to try this ! just one little tip, if you put in the olive oil before the honey, the honey won't stick onto your spoon :)

  12. Hi Annie!

    Quick tip: Use a ceramic or wooden spoon for honey. Metal spoons are said to anni­hi­late its attributes.


    Also, don’t put honey in your tea when it’s hot! It will lose all its nutrients.

  30. How often can we use the" Gorgeous skin "?

    ReplyDelete
  31. This really makes a difference especially that olive oil. Olive oil is the best that has been known so far for skin in terms of oils. The mask seems quite a hit since it is going to deliver the required texture of skin.

  32. I still come back to this video when I need a reminder. I love this mask and I love Annie!
