Raw Honey Face Mask

Raw honey is liquid that honeybees produce from the concentrated nectar of flowers. The honey is collected straight from the extractor; unheated, unpasteurized, unprocessed. This is perhaps one of the most important characteristics and health benefits of the final product, as it preserves all the natural vitamins, enzymes, phytonutrients and other nutritional elements. 

These health benefits are not for when it is eaten but East Brissy Bees Raw Honey can be used as a face mask. Honey promotes anti-aging as it is full of anti-oxidants and when using it as a face mask the honey opens up pores while providing a natural moisturizer as well. 

  • Apply a layer of honey to a damp face, being sure to avoid contact with eyes. 
  • Leave for 15-20 minutes
  • Wash off with a damp cloth
