Quick DIY, Honey Tea Tree Oil Mask & Find Out If You're a Giveaway Winner for Mally & Lancome Makeup
I'm the only one in my immediate family who has very sensitive acne prone skin. My siblings have always had flawless skin. I was never that lucky. To this day I don't remember ever seeing a zit on my brother's face. Growing up, I broke out like crazy with zits, and those horrid hyperpigmentation marks, and even now as an adult I still suffer from occasional breakouts. I told you girls that I worked at the Vitamin Shoppe as a teen, with an Italian woman who was 60 and looked 35-40. While I was there, she (like my abuela) taught me how to make many anti-aging Do It Yourself masks, and she also taught me how to make a very simple yet effective mask for keeping those zits away and hydrating the skin. Even now, I still make this mask. I made it last night because I felt a huge zit coming on my chin (don't you hate those?). This morning the ziti is gone.
All you'll need are two ingredients.
Honey, and tea tree oil.

Honey-I use honey for so many things. My hair, my skin, and I ingest a teaspoon internally every day. Honey is a natural antiseptic and contains antibacterial properties. It's also an amazing skin and hair moisturizer that has been used forever! Put some coconut oil and honey on your hair and call me in the morning. You'll find yourself with soft beautiful hair. Apply on your skin, for some seriously hydrated skin. FYI, i refrigerate my honey.
Tea tree oil is also a natural antiseptic and will kill your acne bacteria, but it's super drying to the skin. If you ever get one of those cystic acne zits, apply some tea tree oil on it and it will go away a lot faster. If you have sensitive skin make sure you dilute it with water before applying directly to skin.
Ok, let's get started on this mask which is so super quick and easy.
I use 1/2 a tablespoon and put it in a plastic container
I then use about eight drops of tea tree oil. I've been doing this mask for a long time so eight drops may be a lot for you. Maybe you want to try four drops.
After you're done mix this together. If you want to take it a step further you can throw in some Apple Cider Vinegar, but that may be way too strong for your skin. So don't do it until you get used to this mask first:
Now apply on your face. That's me last night. Don't I look sexy?
I leave this on for 30 minutes while I clean, or blog. Then it comes off. My skin is super soft after, and any zit that was thinking of coming is gone.
I love this mask because it's so multipurpose. It's great for anti-aging, keeping your skin hydrated and works wonders on zits.
