The three ingredients her homemade face mask requires are as follows: organic oatmeal, manuka honey, and egg white. That’s it. “Mix manuka honey with organic oatmeal and egg white. Mix it all together and put it on your face for a few minutes, and it’s amazing. But it’s got to be manuka honey, not regular honey. And it’s got to be organic oatmeal,” she explained.
So why these three specific ingredients? Let’s start with manuka honey, which is lauded by many as an antibacterial powerhouse. “Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, manuka honey can heal congested and inflamed skin,” explained Tyler Porteous, vice president of marketing and business development at Bare Republic, an eco-active skincare line. “It can oxygenate pores to draw out bacteria, helping to improve acne-prone areas over time. Its anti-inflammatory properties also help reduce redness.”
It’s also insanely moisturizing, which explains why Beckham swears by it for plumping up her complexion. “Honey, particularly manuka honey, is incredibly moisturizing, allowing your skin to stay hydrated without clogging pores. It’s also been shown to offer antioxidant properties to bind up and neutralize free radicals,” Porteous said. We don’t know about you, but to us, that sounds pretty incredible.
