Honey Mask & Scrub

An exfoliating honey mask and scrub with the gentle power of baking soda.

Author Sarah UmmYusuf


  • 1 tsp raw honey (look for "unpasteurized" on the label
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda (aka sodium bicarbonate)


  1. Start with a dry face. Put honey and baking soda in your palm and rub palms together for a few seconds to warm up the honey and work in the baking soda.

  2. Gently apply the honey mixture to your face, and massage it in with circular motions for about a minute.

  3. If you want to use it as a mask, just leave it on for 15-20 minutes.

  4. Rinse your face a few times with warm water, or wipe off gently with a warm, wet wash cloth. You'll be surprised how easily it comes off!

  5. Since baking soda is alkaline, you may want to tone your face afterwards with some diluted raw apple cider vinegar to restore your skins pH level.
