Something naturally sweet #apothecary #beauty

Something a little different today. I have started experimenting with natural beauty apothecary. Last night I tried a honey baking soda mask. I have very sensitive skin and so far I’ve had no reaction. It did make my skin softer.

Exfoliating Honey Mask & Scrub

Ingredients

1 teaspoon raw honey 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Instructions

Start with a dry face. Put honey and baking soda in your palm and rub palms together for a few seconds to warm up the honey and work in the baking soda. Gently apply the honey mixture to your face, and massage it in for a minute or so. If you want to use it as a mask, just leave it on for 5-10 minutes. Rinse your face a few times with warm water, or wipe off gently with a warm, wet wash cloth. You’ll be surprised how easily it comes off!Since baking soda is alkaline, you may want to tone your face afterwards with some raw apple cider vinegar to restore your skins pH level.

What Are The Benefits?

Honey has natural anti-bacterial properties and has been used for centuries as an effective skin treatment.
Baking soda is a gentle exfoliant and helps remove dead skin cells without causing too much irritation.
