Do you know just how good honey is for your skin? If you have raw, unpasteurized honey in your cupboard then you have all you need for a nourishing at-home facial treatment. Amazing for all skin types, honey has several qualities that make it wonderful for the skin, and its totally edible to boot!
Honey is naturally anti-bacterial and anti-fungal, making it good for acne prone skin. It's also a humectant and draws moisture from the air making it moisturizing for dry skin. It's also chock full of antioxidants which provides anti-aging benefits. Sounds pretty good? Give it a try, we know you'll love it.
You can use pure honey and apply a thin layer to the skin, leave it on for fifteen minutes and then wash off with warm water. If you have long hair make sure you tie it back to keep it out of the sticky stuff, and don't apply too thick or it will drip from your chin as it warms to your body temperature. Breathe deeply and relax while the honey does its magic.
If your skin is exceptionally dry you can add a tbsp of mashed avocado to the honey. And if your skin is more blemish prone try adding a 1/4 tsp of cinnamon to the mixture.
Either way you'll notice the softening and nourishing effects immediately. Honey may become your favourite beauty product!
