Of course, ageing is something that cannot be stopped. It's a natural process that we all have to go through as time passes by. But it is possible to delay the early signs of ageing like wrinkles, dark spots and fine lines.
A wide range of antiageing products are available in the market these days in the form of lotions, creams, etc. But these are infused with chemicals that will further damage the skin. Therefore going natural is the best thing to do.
In this article, we'll see some of the best masks that you can try using raw honey. Honey possesses antioxidants and antibacterial properties that will help in treating wrinkles and fine lines and rejuvenate the skin.
Honey And Lemon Scrub
Vitamin C contained in lemon helps in treating dark spots effectively. Also applying lemon topically would aid in shrinking of the large pores and improving the elasticity of the skin.
- 1tbsp raw honey
- ½ sliced lemon
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- ½ cup granulated sugar
How to do
In a clean bowl, add raw honey. Squeeze in a few drops of lemon juice into it. Later add olive oil and granulated sugar and mix all the ingredients well. Apply this on cleansed face and gently scrub it in a circular motion. Later rinse it off using normal water. You can also apply some moisturiser after washing it off since the lemon can make your skin dry if you already have a dry skin.
Honey, Yogurt And Avocado Face Mask
Lactic acid in yogurt helps in removing the dead skin cells from the skin. Avocado, on the other hand, helps in brightening the skin as well as improving the elasticity of the skin.
- 1 tsp honey
- ½ ripe avocado
- 1 tsp plain yogurt
How to do
Take a ripe avocado and mash it using a spoon to make a smooth paste. Add plain and unflavoured yogurt into the avocado paste. Finally, add some raw honey and combine all the ingredients well. Apply this mixture evenly on your face and leave it on your face for about 30 minutes before rinsing it off in cold water.
Honey And Papaya Face Mask
Papaya contains enzymes that help in reducing the age spots and makes the skin look much younger.
- 2 tbsp honey
- ½ ripe papaya
How to do
Peel off the skin of the papaya and cut it into small pieces. Either blend it in a blender or mash it to make a smooth paste. Add the raw honey into the mashed papaya and mix the ingredients well. Apply this on your face and let it stay for about 20-30 minutes. After 30 minutes you can wash it off with normal water. You can do this once in a week.
