In which skin conditions does the honey mask have the best effect?
Unpleasant pimples aren't just about puberty. In some people, they also appear in later stages of their lives. Acne in adulthood can be a result of stress and nervous tension or prolonged illness that has led to a decrease in the body's immunity. Acne can be an indicator of hormonal imbalance. Through it, the body can signal an internal problem. It is not necessary to have acne just on the face. In some people, it also affects the skin on the back.

Honey ingredients can overall enhance the appearance, give a fresh and healthy complexion to the skin.
Dry skin and wrinkles
Honey has a soothing and moisturizing effect and keeps the skin well hydrated, which significantly slows down the aging process and the appearance of new wrinkles. In dry skin, the risk of early aging and the appearance of wrinkles is higher than that of oily and combination skin. Therefore, the frequent application of a honey mask (at least once a week) is able to significantly enhance the protection of the skin and thus remain protected from external harmful effects for a long time. Applying a honey mask several times a week can lead to a permanent reduction in dryness. The honey mask is especially useful during the stages of the year when the skin of the face feels dry under the influence of the climate, such as in winter.

Preferably, when preparing a face mask, raw raw honey is used. The honey sold in jars in supermarkets was subjected to too much processing, which largely took away from the effect of the ingredients. Therefore, look for raw untreated honey, especially when used for beauty purposes, because it has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties.
