Honey facial mask- μέλι 

To make one application you’ll need:1 tablespoon honey (pure, organic type like the kind I sell)  

1 teaspoon salt

Few drops of olive oil

Mix everything together until the mask looks similar to caramel. Apply gently over clean, wet skin in a circular motion, making sure to avoid eye area. Leave on for about 15 minutes, then rinse. Follow up with your favorite moisturizer. 

Why does this stuff work so well? Honey is known as a humectant. This means that it attracts moisture, so your skin benefits by extra hydration. Also, it is naturally antibacterial. And, of course, salt has been used for centuries as a healing agent. It tightens, preserves and acts as an exfoliant, removing those stubborn dead skin cells, allowing new and healthy skin to emerge. A honey facial benefits your entire being, because if you have a nice glowing, healthy skin that radiates, you will have more self-confidence and poise, which contributes to good health.
