Experts in the making of the recipe say Lime has a higher citric acid content than lemons. So, avoid using lemon as a substitute. Lime makes an excellent disinfectant and whitening agent for the skin, which comes in handy to lighten the dark spots left behind by the long gone pimples.
The instructions and ingredients to prepare the scrubbing mask include: First, pour about two tablespoons of room temperature raw honey in a clean and preferably disinfected small bowl or cup. Second, add one-half teaspoon of raw sugar and another half teaspoon of Dead Sea salt to the honey. Make sure both the sugar and salt are of small grains. Third, wash and grate the skin of the lime (lime zest). Add about one-eighth of a teaspoon of the lime zest and one-fourth of a teaspoon of the lime juice to the honey/sugar/salt mix. Fourth, mix with a spoon until all the ingredients are well incorporated.
Applying the skin care recipe: Find a comfortable place away from sunlight where to rest after the mask is used. Since Lime, like any other citrus, is photosynthetic, it will react with sunlight that could stain your skin. Allow some 25 to 30 minutes of free time for the natural chemicals to gel. Before facial application remove all makeup from your face by washing gently with water and mild natural soap and patting dry your face.
Apply the Honey/Sugar/Salt/Lime mask all over your face and neck with your fingers, avoiding the eyes in a circular motion for about three to five minutes, then, leave the cover on for about 15 to 20 minutes. After the time has passed, wet your fingers with warm water and massage gently in a circular motion removing the natural mixture off your face. Rinse and pat your skin dry after removing all the sweet mix.
Honey and Lime Scrubbing Mask for Acne-Prone Skin can be applied two to three times a week for acne prone skin and one to two times a week for normal, oily or dry skins. As a result, you will feel your skin to be clean, soft with any of the inflammation gone. One bad habit of women to avoid is sleeping with their make-up on most of the time.
