The recipe we’ll give you today is made of ingredients that fight bacteria, calm the skin and make it super soft. Make sure you use fresh, organic garlic and if you can’t find that, then opt for jarred minced garlic which you can find practically anywhere.

- 2-3 garlic cloves (or minced garlic)
Peel the garlic cloves and put the garlic in a blender or a food processor. Pulse until it is lightly chopped. Add the honey and the olive oil and pulse until everything is mixed well. If needed, you can add a little extra honey or oil. Put the mixture in the fridge and let it stay there overnight.
Peel garlic cloves.
How To Use It
Wash your face thoroughly and make sure it is free of make-up and clean.
Apple the fast with your fingers using circular motions. Don’t press too hard against the skin, especially if you used raw honey.
Leave the mask on for 15-20 minutes and not a minute longer. If left on for too long, garlic can burn the skin as it is a powerful antioxidant.
Wash off the mask with warm water and apply moisturizer for additional hydration.
