Leave the mask to sit for 30 minutes, and then rinse it off with warm water. What you’ll get is a silky, well-nourished skin that looks healthy - and feels good to be in, too.

Honey also helps unclog blocked pores, so it will make a great home-made exfoliator. Prepare a paste with 2/3 honey and 1/3 baking soda (the latter will boost the exfoliating effects without causing skin irritation), then apply the mixture to the face, neck and other parts of your body in need of a quick dead cell removal regimen. Rub in the blend carefully, leave it on for about 10-15 minutes, rinse it out, and then enjoy a smooth, soft skin for weeks on end.
