If you’ve been on the hunt for the perfect face mask that will brighten and tighten your skin, then stop because I can show you how to concoct your own mask that will soothe, heal, and even out your skin tone with items you likely have in your kitchen.
Lemons have healing and toning properties (i.e. AHA, BHA) that can help clear up acne, blackheads, and discoloration. Honey is a natural antioxidant and has antibacterial properties. This brightening and tightening duo will tighten your pores and exfoliate the skin to bring out a radiant and glowing complexion.
