Honey and milk are both excellent products for your skin to hydrate and fight signs of aging! Follow the recipe below to create a custom anti-aging milk and honey face mask. And if you want extra benefits, we suggest adding some oats to exfoliate dead skin and leaving it looking brilliantly smooth.
This recipe can benefit your skin in many ways. Milk contains lactic acid, which helps to exfoliate the skin and remove impurities. Honey is a natural ingredient that tightens and firms the skin giving you a more youthful appearance with its anti-inflammatory properties.
Yogurt also contains lactic acid, assisting in exfoliating and smoothing the skin to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Oats are an ingredient that helps calm, soothe, and moisturize the skin.
They are also high in beta-glucan, a great all-natural anti-aging ingredient that encourages the production of individual cells that plump and smooth skin to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles visibly. This mask will leave you feeling fantastic with beautiful, younger-looking skin.
1/2 Cup Milk
1/2 Teaspoon Honey (We recommend using Vermont Soap’s Organic Honey Face Mask with lavender oil)
Directions: Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix until thoroughly combined. Grab a dollop of the mask and apply it to a clean face. You can also use a fan brush to apply. Let sit for up to 15 minutes, rinse with tepid water. Follow up with a moisturizer for extra hydration. For best results, use 1-3 times a week.
Variations: For added benefits, try one of these variations.
Egg- Adding a raw egg to your mask will increase the tightening benefits. (Raw egg may not be an appropriate addition for some people. Do not use eggs in your treatment if you are uncomfortable with them being raw.)
Mashed Banana- Bananas are a great source of Vitamin C. They are also rich in moisture and can help hydrate the skin.
Essential Oils- Adding essential oils to your mask provides extra benefits plus gives it the soothing scents of aromatherapy. Oils like lavender and chamomile are great for the skin; they are calming, help with skin imperfections like acne, wrinkles, and psoriasis, and help remove toxins.
Lemon- Lemon is an ingredient used in skincare to reduce the appearance of large pores. Adding lemon to your mask will shrink pores and help remove surface impurities.
Coconut Oil- Used for its hydration, coconut oil is a prevalent ingredient in homemade skincare. Including a bit of coconut oil in your mask will give your skin a dose of ultra-hydration, leaving your skin feeling super soft.
