“A farmer looks as good as his/ her crops”, I always say and many think it’s my favorite joke. Imagine all day long in the heat tending your crops, then who will have time to tend your skin. It’s a busy season for us all; farmer or not, who will have time to go around to look for a good and affordable face cleanser, scrub or exfoliator?
Oh my God! Everyone deserves a bit of pampering and with just half a lemon and 2 teaspoons of honey you will be in your own spa. Say you don’t have the honey, brown sugar will work equally well. All you do is squeeze lemon juice and add your honey. You mix them well until a thick sticky paste is formed and apply to your face for ten minutes. Steam your face with warm water until the lemon/honey mask melts off. Rinse your face thoroughly and trust me the feeling will be amazing.
- Lemon has ideal cleansing properties essential in fighting off bacteria that may cause rashes or pimples. It achieves a clean look on any skin type making it an ideal facial cleanser.
- It kills bacteria which causes pimples thus may help reduce breakouts.
- Anti-inflammatory properties- when applied to the skin, honey helps reduce the activity of inflammation compounds thus lessen skin redness and irritation.
- Honey contains natural enzymes that help remove dead cells thus a natural exfoliator for your skin.
What if what? With lemon and honey there are no ifs. Probably you will have to be careful not to apply the paste onto your eyes and even if such a mistake happens all you will have to do is thoroughly wash your eyes with fresh running water. Also avoid applying the mask when you have open scars on your skin.
Happy flawless farmer!!! 😄💁
