Everyone wants a glowing and soft skin, without having to pay a fortune on expensive beauty products. Well that’s come to an end, because we have here a simple recipe for a homemade face mask, whose ingredients you probably have in your kitchen cupboard. The ingredients – baking soda, honey and extra – virgin olive oil – are really good for your complexion.
Both honey and olive oil have moisturizing properties that keep your skin smooth and soft. Olive oil penetrates deep into the skin, promoting elasticity, reducing blemishes and helping repair your skin.
Honey protects your skin from premature wrinkling and sun damage, fights off bacteria and tightens your skin pores. It also locks in moisture and hydrates your skin.
The baking soda reduces redness caused by boosts circulation and breakouts and works as a gentle exfoliating agent. It also helps treat pimples and acne by removing dead skin cells and excess oil.
Another advantage of this beauty mask is that it is suitable for all skin types. The ingredients are neither too greasy nor too drying.

Add 1 teaspoon of baking soda as well.

Your homemade face mask is ready now. How easy is that?
How to Use
First thing you need to do is wash your face and dry it off, leaving it slightly damp (when you apply the mask, the water will help minimize the greasy feeling).
Now, in a circular motion like a scrub spread your homemade face mask on your neck and face. Leave it on for about 10 minutes and then rinse it off with lukewarm water. If after the treatment, your skin feels oily, apply a moisturizer and toner.
Use this face mask about once a week to maintain a beautiful, soft, and glowing complexion.
