Show yourself some serious self love with this DIY honey + thyme face mask to help heal your skin, reduce blemishes and refresh your complexion for the new week!

Now don’t get us wrong: We love heading to the spas and salons for an indulgent facial treatment just as much as the next beauty lover – but when nature has given us all the best ingredients to make our own, it would be crazy not to take advantage, right?

The saying goes ‘What you put on your body is just as important as what you put in it’, and at Filmore HQ we love experimenting with homemade beauty treatments that are super low budget, totally natural and leave us feeling gorgeous and glowy from the inside out!

Thyme is known to be an antibacterial herb and adds a beautiful scent to the mask – whilst honey is the ultimate soother for when it comes to inflammation and redness. The addition of aloe vera gel makes this 3 ingredient mask the perfect skin pep up for when you need it most!

Makes 1 mask:

1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves

1/2 tsp honey

1/2 tsp aloe vera

Method:

Grind the thyme leaves using a pestle and mortar before mixing in a small pot with the honey and aloe. Apply generously to the skin and leave to set for 15 minutes. Be sure to take this time to totally relax – and have a cup of your favourite herbal by the side whilst you wait! Simply wash off with a hot muslin cloth and splash your face with cold water afterwards, to close the pores. That’s it!

Enjoy your pamper, Filmorites! X
