• Heavenly Honey and Orange Face Mask

    IMG_3547
    You might want to turn the brightness down on your phone because those oranges are BLINDING. I have tried turning down the contrast on it a bit, however we just have to embrace the pop of colour. I have a bit of a love hate relationship with skin care because in my head I love the idea of having perfectly clear skin, and I adore reading other bloggers skin care posts, however keeping a skin care routine takes a lot of time and effort. When I am climbing into bed at eleven o’clock at night, doing a thirty minute makeup removing and skin care routine is the last thing on my mind. AM I RIGHT OR AM I RIGHT?!
    Because of this I tend not to spend fortunes on any skin care products because I know I will probably never finish the bottle. I like using face masks because who doesn’t love a little pamper sesh and a girly night in, however my face can react with some of the cheap packet ones, so I have to spend a little more on face masks than I would like.
    This got me thinking, because I had seen DIY face masks on the Cosmopolitan Snapchat thing-a-ma-bob and from other bloggers, however I have been skeptical about them and whether mixing items your would normally eat would actually help your skin. So I tried this recipe out….
    What you need for this face mask:

    • 1 ½ Tablespoons of Orange Juice
    • 3 Tablespoons of Honey

    I actually did double this recipe and it was WAY TOO MUCH and in fact you could even half this recipe again and still have enough.

    It has a rather watery texture to it however it still works. Before you put it on, remove any excess makeup or dirt off your face and then apply it using a clean brush. Leave it on for 15-30 minutes and rinse off with a flannel and warm water.
    Even though it is a runny mask, it doesn’t drop off you face and ruin your clothes because the honey in it makes it sticky. I watched a bit of YouTube and then took it off. It made my face so smooth, like if I was using a ‘normal’ face mask. It is also incredibly cheap. You can get a pot of honey and a cartoon of orange juice for under £3 and imagine how many face masks you can make out of that!
    It doesn’t exfoliate your skin like some face masks can do, it is more a of reboosting and revitalising face mask which is softer on your skin. However you do still have to moisturizer after it because like any face mask, I could feel my skin going tight.
    Have you ever made a homemade face mask?
