4 Types of Honey Masks to Try at Home

Honey masks are not only amazing for your skin but also all natural! Here are four different types of honey masks to try with different skin types :

1- Honey face mask for acne-prone skin

•3 teaspoons raw honey

•1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon

Mix honey and cinnamon together, and apply to your face. Leave the mask on for 10-30 minutes. The antibacterial properties of both honey and cinnamon are especially beneficial for acne-prone skin.

2- Honey face mask for dry skin

•1 teaspoon mashed avocado

•1 teaspoon plain whole milk yogurt

•1 teaspoon honey

Mix ingredients in a small bowl until smooth. Spread the mixture over your face and let it sit for 20-30 minutes before washing it off. The fats in the avocado and whole milk yogurt are deeply moisturizing to the skin, while the lactic acid in the yogurt smooths your skin, refines pores, and stimulates collagen production.

3- Honey mask for sensitive skin

•2 teaspoon of raw honey

•1 teaspoon aloe Vera gel

Stir the aloe and honey together and apply over your face. Leave it on for about 10-20 minutes. Aloe soothes inflammation and calms your skin, perfect for those with sensitive, irritated skin.

4- Honey mask for scars and dark spots

•2 teaspoon of raw honey

•1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

Combine the lemon juice and honey, and apply the mixture to your face. Allow it to sit for 20-30 minutes. Lemon juice exfoliates your skin, brightens dark spots and fades scars. Your skin will feel smooth and soft right away, but it may take a few applications to notice a real difference in scars and spots.

4 Benefits from Lymphatic Massage

I have recently just learned to do the lymphatic massage. Not only did I learn how to give the massage, but I also learned how it works and how beneficial it is for the body. Lymphatic massage helps to remove the waste and detoxifies the body.

Lymphatic massage also helps with:

1) healing after surgery which regenerates the tissue to reduce scarring at surgical incision sites.

2) breast feeding because the lymph drainage massage can help to reduce the swelling of engorgement and ameliorate plugged ducts. Fixing these two problems can reduce soreness in the breasts and nipples, ultimately leading to better breastfeeding.

3) improved immune system. They state that lymph drainage massages can improve the function of the immune system and increase the production of antibodies that fight off infections. Lymph drainage massages can also reduce inflammation in the body that causes diseases such as arthritis.

4) relaxation- Lymph drainage massages can be especially relaxing because they can reduce pain levels in the body.

So not only our the benefits great for you but it also feels good!

Benefits of Drinking Lemon Water

Glasses with Lemon Water

I love lemon water! I love it not only for its taste but also for its benefits. Most people don’t really know how great lemon water is for you.

Lemons are packed with nutrients such as vitamin C, B-complex vitamins, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, and fiber. It’s interesting to realize that they contain more potassium than apples or grapes!

Some of the benefits of lemon water are:

  • gives your immune system a boost with the vitamin C
  • excellent potassium for your heart’s health
  • aids digestion
  • cleans your system by flushing out the toxins
  • helps freshen your breath with citric acid
  • keeps your skin blemish free with antioxidants
  • helps you lose weight because of the pectin fiber in the lemon
  • reduces inflammation
  • gives you an energy boost
  • helps to cut out caffeine
  • helps fight viral infections

Not only are the benefits of lemon water endless, but it’s one of the most substantial yet simple changes you can make for your health.

High Frequency

High Frequency Machine

High Frequency Machine

I have recently been using the high frequency machine on my face and have become obsessed. The results I’m getting are fantastic! My skin has improved drastically from just a couple of treatments. I can see the breakouts on my face disappearing and my fine lines getting smoother and less visible.

The high frequency machine is used to help:

  • stubborn acne
  • shrink enlarged pores
  • reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and cellulite
  • decongest puffy eyes
  • fade dark eye circles
  • rejuvenate the condition of the scalp for improved hair growth

High frequency is considered an essential skin rejuvenating treatment in the skin care industry. It stimulates cell renewal and assists with improved skin care product penetration and absorption by gently warming the tissues of the skin.

High frequency facial machines work in conjunction with high frequency electrodes which are made of clear tempered glass. The electrodes come in a variety different shapes and sizes to facilitate the treatment of various contours of the face and body. A mild low level alternating electrical current is generated by the high frequency machine which then passes through the attached glass electrode upon contact with the skin. The electrical current ignites the gas inside the electrode and healing electrical light energy is produced. When mixed with the air outside of the electrode, the electrical current creates and infuses the skin with purifying and rejuvenating oxygen molecules and a therapeutic zapping or tingling sensation is experienced.

The benefits are amazing and I would highly suggest getting a high frequency facial.
