Did you know mustard can make a fabulous facial mask? It will firm the skin, clean out those pores and leave the face feeling smooth. 35 and still alive with no wrinkles on this mustard face!  Before applying it, test a small amount on the inside of your elbow and wait a few minutes to make sure you don’t have a reaction.

There’s a good chance that I’m making  a “Blue Steel” face in that picture… Anyways… I had decent skin in high school but in my 20’s , I started developing cystic acne. I tried  EVERYTHING! I could’ve made a down payment on a house with everything I tried. After a dismal experience with Accutane, I started seeing an all-natural esthetician who put me on organic skincare and got me to start taking probiotics daily. A part of the skincare was using raw, organic honey as a mask each night for at least 10 minutes. Raw honey is a natural anti-bacterial which helps diminish acne. It also moisturizes so your skin isn’t peeling after. Some nights, I even slept with it on. The results were incredible.

Most of the products she recommended were too expensive to keep up with but the probiotics and the honey were easy to stick with. My acne has drastically calmed down over the past 3 years, since I started this. I started with plain raw honey but lately I’ve been using a brand called Really Raw Honey, which has a light exfoliant from the pollen. May seem odd, but if you struggle with acne like I did, you should try this!
