Lavender and Honey Face Mask for Combination Skin

Do you have oily skin that is prone to breakouts and dry skin at the same time? Hello combination skin, one of the most difficult skin types when working for an even skin tone and a glowing complexion. Skin that is dry and has pimples may be difficult to manage, but not if you use the right skin care ingredients. Using natural, raw honey and pure lavender essential oil, you can make the ultimate face mask for combination skin.

Honey is one of the best homemade face mask ingredients. It has natural anti-bacterial properties, which makes it excellent for preventing breakouts. You may think of honey simply as a source of sticky sweetness, but this golden goo is actually a rich source of nutrients for the skin, with amino acids and antioxidants. Anti-bacterial and nourishing, honey is an ideal ingredient for natural skin care for acne, but it also has another attribute that makes it perfect for dry skin. Honey is one of nature's humectants. It encourages the skin to retain moisture, promoting soft, supple skin.

Add lavender to your honey face mask and you get double the benefits for treating acne and dry skin. Lavender helps to fight bacteria and it reduces inflammation, a winning combination for pimples. The calming properties of lavender are gentle enough for managing acne with dry and sensitive skin.

To make a homemade lavender and honey face mask for combination skin you will need:
  • 2 tablespoons of raw honey
  • 1 teaspoon of hot water
  • 3 drops of lavender essential oil

Add the hot water to the honey to make it more pliable. Add the lavender oil and stir together. Spread the face mask over your skin with fingertips. Rinse well after at least ten minutes. You may want to use a warm wet wash cloth to clear away any sticky residue. Pat dry and apply a light moisturizer on your intensely clean and softened skin.
