Honey contains superior antibacterial, probiotic healing properties and is super nourishing and hydrating. If you have any skincare ailments from eczema to acne, honey can heal them as well as minor wounds. You can easily make a face mask with honey at home, and remember, honey has many beauty advantages too, along with deep cleansing and moisturizing your skin naturally.
Here are some of the beauty advantages by using honey:
For dry skin you can use honey and coconut oil by using 1 tbsp of honey and 1 tbsp of coconut oil. For oily skin you can use honey and aloe vera (equal parts), with a pinch of tumeric and leave on for 20 minutes. For scars and dark spots use honey and lemon juice, equal parts and apply to the dark spots or scars, leaving on 30 minutes or overnight. For blackheads apply a tsp of cinnamon to 2 tbsp of honey and leave on for 10-15 minutes for clear skin. You can also reduce the appearance of pores by applying 1 egg and a tbsp of raw organic honey, leaving it on for 20-30 min. To brighten skin, use 4 tsp of honey and 1/2 c of yogurt and make a thick paste. Let dry on skin and after 30 min. rinse with cold water. To improve the look of wrinkles and fine lines use equal parts honey and oatmeal mixed together and apply past to face and leave it on for 15-20 minutes and rinse. This mask will give your face a hydrated look. For smooth skin, mix 1 tbsp of baking soda, 1 tbsp of olive oil and 1 tbsp of honey. Apply to face and body and leave on for 5 min. This scrub will leave your skin feeling super soft!
