A woman (or man) should never be too busy to take care of their facial skin. If someone were to ask you what are the top golden rules when taking care of your face, you'd have to answer that it's exfoliation, moisturizing and cleansing facials. What do these extremely important routines do? They uplift your face, giving it life and an overall clean look. You don't have to then fuss about oiliness, a rampant acne breakout or dry flaky spots.

It is crucial that you make these beauty-essential habits an ongoing routine, to help your skin stay young and feel refreshed every single time. What we'll cover here are honey and lemon facial masks, that use other ingredients to amplify their effects. Be sure to make full use of these easy to prepare recipes, that will have you admiring your face longer in the mirror.

Some of the Best Facial Mask Recipes

A lemon and honey face mask doesn't necessarily have to revolve around these two ingredients, where you can throw in some other skin enhancing add-ons to take it up a notch.

The Doctor Oz Special Lemon Brandy Face Mask

What You'll Require
  1. A cup of milk
  2. 1 tablespoon of brandy (any brand on hand)
  3. 2 teaspoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice
How to Prepare this

Let all your ingredients coalesce into one another within a bowl, until it takes on a nice smooth and even consistency. Using a broad ended paint brush, dab onto your face the contents of your bowl. Stay away from your eye patch area and rinse this face mask off after it dries up. Give it about 5 minutes to do its job when you apply it onto your face.

Spiced Up Lemon and Honey Face Mask

What You'll Require
  1. ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon powder
  2. 2 tablespoons of honey
  3. ¼ teaspoon of nutmeg
  4. 1 teaspoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice
How to Prepare this

First splash your face with water, and then pat it dry before you apply this facial mask. Mix together your different ingredients, by first warming up the honey slightly, before you include the other add-ons. Using your fingers, gently coat your face evenly with your concoction, until you have a nice layer of this caked upon your face. Leave this on for 15 minutes, before washing it off with lukewarm water. Pat your skin with a face towel that's been lightly soaked in cold water. Let your skin dry naturally after the previous step, and apply a moisturizer of your choice when you're done. You trap within your skin the effects of the facial mask when you perform this last step.
