Happy Skincare Saturday!

Today we’re talking about one of our skin care favorites – raw honey!

The use of honey in skin care dates back thousands of years. The natural enzymes in honey are extremely beneficial to the skin. Honey has been known to naturally heal a myriad of skin conditions such as acne scarring, eczema, and psoriasis.

Keep in mind that not all honey is created equal. Manuka Honey 16+ is excellent for skin care, but it is an investment. When selecting a Manuka Honey, the higher the antibacterial grade the better.  If that’s not an option look for raw, pure, unheated, unpasteurized, and unfiltered honey.

Lemon is great for brightening up your skin! Over time it can help with sun spots and acne scarring.

We love pairing them together for an easy 2-ingredient facial mask! (For all skin types!)

Honey + Lemon Facial Mask

Use a small (tiny!) mason jar and simply mix it together.


  • 1/2 a lemon
  • 2 tbsp raw honey


  1. Squeeze 1/2 a lemon into a bowl.
  2. Add 2 tbsp raw honey.
  3. Stir to combine all ingredients.
  4. Apply to face and leave on for 15-20 minutes.
  5. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.

(As with ALL skincare products, SPOT TEST this mixture on an inconspicuous area, like the inside of your arm, and WAIT 24 HOURS to ensure your skin does not react!)
