Using Honey on Skin

Honey is sweet, but there is another reason to love honey!  It is a natural skin product that has many advantages.  The antibacterial properties and antioxidants can produce a glowing result.  Clearing out the bacteria from pores can reduce acne.   Providing the skin with a boost of antioxidants can reduce cell damage and slow the appearance of aging.  Honey is more than just a sweet treat!

Here are 5 ways to use honey on your skin:

1. Mask – Apply raw honey to damp skin using a circular motion.  Leave on for 30 minutes and rinse with warm water.  You will be left with soft, glowing skin.

2. Spot Treatment – Treat a blemish overnight with a dab of honey to help it heal faster.

3. Cleanser – Honey, mixed with your favorite plant oil, can make a makeup-dissolving cleanser that will leave your skin moisturized and vibrant.

4. Exfoliate – Combine two parts honey with one part baking soda for a soothing, exfoliating mixture.  Cleans your skin, head to toe, as a soothing body scrub.

5. Bath – Treat yourself to a warm bath with honey.  Start with 2 cups honey and soak for 15 minutes.  Add a cup of baking soda to exfoliate, and then rinse.  You will feel like new!
