Our skin is fragile, and it is essential to take the utmost care of our skin without exposing it to harmful toxins. But before you loosen your purse strings for those oh-so expensive products, it’s time to raid the kitchen and follow some home remedies.

If you want glowing skin, this milk and honey facemask is your best bet.

How To Make All Natural Milk And Honey Facemask At Home

Making the milk and honey facemask at home is super easy. The recipe is as easy as making instant noodles and I promise it gets ready in 2 minutes.

To make the milk and honey facemask, you only need 2 ingredients. The best part is that it can be customized according to your skin’s needs.

1. In a bowl, add 3 teaspoons of milk with ½ teaspoon of honey. Stir the two ingredients using a spoon.

2. Keep on stirring until the honey has dissolved in the milk completely. You want to end up with a cream-like consistency. Voila! Your all natural milk and honey facemask is ready.

You don’t need to refrigerate the mask. However, I suggest you use cold milk as it helps to depuff your under-eye area. Also, cold milk feels heavenly!

Once you’ve made the all-natural milk and honey facemask at home, dip a cotton pad/ball in this mixture and apply it evenly on your face. After applying it, let it absorb into your skin and once it is dry, apply another layer and let it sit for 10 mins.

Time To Rinse Baby!

Rinse your face after 10-15 minutes. Make sure to massage your skin nicely until you have gotten all the residual off.

I would not recommend using any facewash. You may use any mild cleanser if your skin feels sticky or oily. Always remember to wash your face with cold water as it slows down the ageing process. It also helps to tighten your pores and promotes blood circulation.

After washing your face, pat dry your face with a soft towel. Apply a toner followed by a gentle moisturizer. Time to treat yourself like the queen you are!
