Honey mask with royal jelly, an amazing anti-aging treatment
Face care: the benefits of honey
Bee nectar has many uses in our daily lives whether it be on bread or in our teas, but honey also has unsuspected anti-aging properties.
Indeed, the flavonoids (antioxidants) present in honey are known to help the body get rid of free radicals that pollute the body. But what many people don't know is that this also applies to the skin. Thus, honey applied as a mask removes harmful free radicals from the facial skin. In this way, it helps the cell tissue to regenerate and thus protects the skin from aging.
In addition, honey is rich in fructose, a substance that hydrates both the deep and superficial layers of the epidermis.
On the other hand, royal jelly is rich in amino acids that trigger the production of collagen, the material responsible for the skin's elasticity. Thus, a honey with royal jelly is the perfect asset to limit the signs of skin aging: sagging skin and wrinkles.

Pour 2 tablespoons of clay powder in a bowl.
While mixing with a wooden spoon, gently pour a little water into the powder.
Add water, stirring vigorously until the paste formed is not too liquid and the lumps have dissolved.
If you find that your paste is too liquid, you can add a little powder until you get the right texture.
Optional: if you wish to benefit from additional properties, you can add some floral water or a few drops ofessential oils in the preparation.
How to apply your clay mask?
When your mask is prepared, be careful to apply it directly, otherwise the preparation will dry in the bowl.
Apply the paste evenly to the face avoiding the eyes and mouth area.
Let it rest for 10 to 15 minutes.
Wet your face thoroughly to moisten the clay and then remove it with a washcloth.
