Honey Face Massage
Personally, I’d like to order a whole body honey massage–but in a pinch an invigorating honey face mask will do just fine. Honey is a great humectant and deeply hydrates the skin, coupled with a gentle massage leaves skin deeply soft with a lovely glow. Many people report an added boost of pleasure from honey’s sweet smell and the warm sticky feel of rubbing it on the skin.
This treatment is appropriate for all skin types; and work especially well for dry, dehydrated, sunburned, windburned, or mature skin. You’ll need 2 teaspoons of raw honey–and remember that honey will get runny when it warms up to your body temperature, so plan accordingly.
Apply honey in a thin layer on your face and neck. Lay down or recline and rest. After letting honey to sit for 15 minutes, pat your skin with your fingertips for about 5 minutes. Rinse using a warm, damp washcloth.
