Benefits of Honey Face Mask
If you are looking for a simple but effective facial pack, try a honey face mask! Though honey is the main ingredient in this facial process, you will require three more ingredients (Milk, Sugar, and Yogurt) to make the facial more efficient.
Total Required Ingredients
- 3 Tbsps. raw honey
- 2 Tbsps. raw milk
- 1 Tbsp. sugar
- 1 Tbsp. yogurt
Benefits of Honey in Skin Care:
Pure Honey is naturally enriched with antioxidants that fight wrinkles and delays the aging process of the skin. To prepare the honey face pack, you are recommended to apply pure honey otherwise it may not bring the expected result.
Benefits of Milk and Yogurt in Skin Care:
Both dairy milk and Yogurt are commendable sources of lactic acid, which is also known as ‘Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA)’ ingredient. The magic of lactic acid not only assists in the removal of dead skin cells but also stimulates the growth of new cells on your skin. This is why Lactic Acid is widely applied in modern skincare products, especially anti-aging face cleansers.
Benefits of Sugar in Skin Care:
Sugar can penetrate the skin cells leaving rejuvenated glowing skin. What is the secret? Sugar is full of Glycolic Acid, which is able to hydrate the skin-cells by absorbing moisture from the surrounding environment. Furthermore, it can preserve the moisture inside the cells of your skin.

Then, apply the combination upon your face and neck area by a clean makeup brush or just fingers. Scrub in a gentle way for about 3 to 4 minutes. Don’t harsh; otherwise the granular property of sugar can hurt your face. Then wash your face again.
