This time of year, it’s easy to put our skin LAST — but winter is tough on the skin, so it’s important not to let your routine suffer.

That’s why it’s good to have a few “quick tricks” up your sleeve, like my Rejuvenating Honey Mask.

Here’s how it’s done:

*Apply a thin layer of honey to clean, dry skin.

*Leave your “mask” on for 10 minutes.

*Rinse the honey away with cool water and a soft cloth. (If it’s still tough to remove, use a drop of cleanser, then rinse clean.)

*Follow with a rich moisturizer to lock in hydration.

That’s it! No extra ingredients, no mixing, no fuss.

It might sound messy, but if you use a thin layer, it’ll actually be less messy than most DIY masks — and it’s well worth the results.

Why?

It’s hydrating (for all skin types!)

Honey is what Dr. Layke and I call a “sticky hydrator,” meaning it hydrates without oil. Whether you have dry, oily, or combination skin, it can help lock in essential moisture (which you definitely need during colder weather).

It’s prebiotic

Most women wear more makeup this time of year for parties and events — which can mean more clogged pores and breakouts. But honey feeds your skin’s “good bacteria” (so it crowds out the bad bacteria), leaving your complexion clear and balanced.

It’s exfoliating

A honey mask will stick to any flaky patches, and remove them when you wash it away. Skin is left smooth, soft, and clean-looking. (You can also use gentle “buffing” motions before you rinse — honey becomes granular as it dries, turning it into a gentle skin-polishing scrub.)

It’s tightening

Since honey is sticky, it gently “pulls” skin into a more youthful position as it dries. That makes it a great temporary fix for sagging skin before a big event (follow up with Lift + Firm Sculpting Cream for even better results!).

So there you have it — an easy, one-step facial that can help you stay one step ahead of skin-aging winter weather.

Let me know how you like it (and enjoy a spoonful while you’re at it… it’s a vitamin-packed way to get your sweet fix)!
