Leave it to dry for at least 20 minutes before washing off with cold water. Using this mask at least three times a week will help to control acne formation and also minimize visible acne scars.
Honey is a great product for all types of skin. If you can manage to get hold of 100% organic honey, there is a lot you can give your skin in terms of replenishment and treatment. Take as much honey as required to generously apply all over your face. Do not dilute; instead use it as is. Let the product seep into the pores and do its work for at least 15 minutes. Wash off with water. Honey, however, has the nature to dry skin. Therefore, if your face feels dry post the application, use a moisturizer suitable for your skin type to seal in the moisture after washing your face.
