Benefits of Lime and Honey Face Mask
Lime and honey face mask will make your skin softer. And one good thing about this mask is you don’t need to wait for a long time. Effects of this mask are visible from the first application. Lime will clean your pores. Also, lime will remove all that excess oil on your face. This is good in many ways. Less oil means less acne and blackheads. And we all know how much trouble acne and blackheads can cause. Like many other, I used to have acne problem. But with these amazing homemade masks, I no longer need to worry about any acne.
In addition to these benefits, honey will even your skin tone and moisturise your skin. If you have acne scar from the past, honey can help reducing these scars. Lime will also support this process. So, in case of acne scars, lime and honey are the perfect duo.

Commercial products on the market are full of harmful chemicals. And we do not even know what those chemicals means. So, in one of my shopping trips, I ended up by reading all the labels.

How to Use Lime and Honey Face Mask?
Before using this mask, you need to clean your face. Wash your face with your regular cleanser. Or if your face is clean, you can use water for washing. Then, apply your lime and honey face mask as a thin layer. You need to wait between 15 to 20 minutes. Or you can wait until the lime juice is entirely dry. After that, wash you face with warm water. Apply your regular moisturiser for hydrate your skin.
I always recommend preparing your DIY cosmetics for single use. In this case, I also recommend single use lime and honey mask. You can use this mask twice a week. If you have sensitive or dry skin, once a week might be more than enough. Since it is super easy to prepare this mask, you don’t need to prepare plenty of mask.
When you are using lime in your recipes, it is important to use this mask at night. Like lemon, some components of lime can interact with sunlight. This will cause brown sunspots. And it is really hard to fight against these sunspots. But if you use this amazing lime and honey face mask at night, you will not experience any problem.
