Facial Mask Recipes: The Honey Skin Cure
by Dr. Renee Lea-Currie
I too was plagued with super sensitive skin and adult acne until I tried a very simple inexpensive recipe. Try this:
1. Wet your hands and then apply honey to your face. Feel free to massage it in if you wish
2. Leave it on for 5-10 minutes.
3. Rinse with water. NOTE: I don’t like the smell of honey so I use water and unscented pure glycerin soap like Dr Bronner’s to rinse. $2 sample bottles of the liquid version can easily be found at Target stores.
4. If you still feel dry, use a dab of olive oil and massage in while your face is still wet.
This simple cheap regimen has “cured” my acne, dry skin, enormous skin pores and lightened old scars! It was hard to find a regimen that works on African-American brown skin, but this one does. Every 1-2 months, I do a simple body honey treatment the same way for all over softness. The ingredients are simple, affordable and available most everywhere.
- As a research scientist, I am familiar with many of the chemical names in many products. Oddly enough, many of the same chemicals in cosmetics would have to be classified as hazardous and disposed of in special manner if they were in my lab at any concentration or amount! Scary.
- As a scientist, I also share with the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and conduct local Natural beauty recipe workshops and shopping tours; this is how I found Robin’s blog a few months ago. I have been very pleased as it seems like we are of the same mind to share information about HOW TO be beautiful and safe. Keep searching and checking out blogs and website to find the information you seek.
