Olive Oil and Honey Face Mask

Olive oil is packed with health benefits, protecting you against heart disease and diabetes, and it is also highly beneficial for your skin. This secret skincare ingredient has been dated back to ancient Egypt – it was even said to be one of Cleopatra’s go-to’s. 

This Olive Oil & Honey Face Mask recipe can help you reap the positive effects that EVOO can provide, topically. Olive oil can be used as a moisturizer or mixed with other anti-inflammatory and anti-aging ingredients, such as honey. 

The antioxidants in olive oil can help to prevent premature aging as it enhances cell production. In addition, when you combine a hydrating ingredient, like EVOO, with a natural antibacterial ingredient like honey, you have got yourself a moisturizing mask that works wonders on various skin types.

When making this face mask at home, it is essential to use high-quality EVOO, as some low-grade oils have been filtered and mixed with other ingredients, which can harm your skin.
