One of the advantages of using a date mask is that it does not have many side effects and that it is herbal, because this water-soluble vitamin B12 is used in many moisturizing, healing and restorative creams and lotions. But due to its chemical formulation, the use of these types of creams and lotions has many side effects.
Now that we have talked about the effect of dates on the skin, we want to explain to you how to prepare a date mask.
How to make a date mask and the necessary ingredients
Half a cup of milk
Two tablespoons of raw honey
A tablespoon of semolina
Steps to prepare a date mask
1- First remove the date kernels from inside it
2- Clean the inside of the date completely so that it is free of dust
3- Boil the milk for 5 minutes

5- Then put the created mixture in a blender for 5 seconds or crush it completely in a container.
6- Add a spoonful of honey and a spoonful of semolina to it and mix again until it becomes an almost soft texture.
With its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, honey heals wounds and removes pimples and prevents infection. This will control and reduce facial acne. The semolina used in this mixture is a suitable option for hydration and increasing the elasticity of the skin due to the presence of various vitamins needed by the body, including magnesium and vitamin B12. You can even use semolina flour as a scrub. This flour has a granular texture and deeply cleans the skin pores.
7- Now you can leave the mask on your face and neck for 20 to 30 minutes.
8- After the mask dries, rub your skin with wet hands in a circular motion for 5 minutes.
9- Then wash your face with water and dry it.
Now you can see the effect of dates on your skin.
