Towards the end of 2012 my skin was in a fairly bad place. I was sunburnt, uneven and developing a splattering of pimples. Using my normal face washes did absolutely nothing to my skin and exfoliators felt like gravel. I had come across this recipe a while back and just decided to go for it.
Honey is and a must-have in the kitchen, apart from it being a healthy sweetener, a little honey in warm milk before bed will help you sleep like a baby. Using it in a facewash was a little daunting because it is just so sticky, but I’ve since mastered it.
I use baking powder AND Honey because I prefer a light exfoliation. if your skin is sensitive add baking powder once or twice a week only.
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon honey (Raw or Manuka Honey suggested, I use normal honey)
Mix the above in your palm and spread over face. You can leave it on for a few minutes before washing it off. The honey rinses off really easily and your skin will feel great.
I’ve been using this since mid-December and my skin looks and feels amazing. I might start using it once a day instead of twice and use my standard face wash. During this time I have not been masking my face mostly because I felt my skin didn’t need it.
