1. Lemon and Turmeric mask

Both lemon and turmeric are often used for their natural ability to give brightness and life to tired and dull skin. Turmeric can help reduce redness, treat active spots and reduce scarring and hyper-pigmentation. The pH level of the lemon juice will also help breakouts.

  • 1 tablespoon Manuka honey
  • squeeze of fresh Lemon juice

2. Avocado face mask

Olive oil is known for its nourishing properties. This mask will hydrate the skin, leaving it soft and supple. Avocado makes the mask perfect for sensitive skin. This is because avocados can help reduce redness and inflammation.

You will need:

  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp avocado
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

3. Banana and Honey mask

Honey, especially manuka honey, is great for healing acne and reducing scarring, fighting bacterial infection and helping skin to retain moisture.

  • 1 tablespoon of honey

4. Calming cinnamon and honey mask

Its not just honey that is known for its ability to reduce redness and inflammation. Cinnamon is also a winning contender. To make the honey easier to work with, heating it up in a microwave for a few seconds will help.
