Sometimes the things you find in the kitchen tend to be better than the goo you get in bottles. If it isn’t already obvious, I’m pro natural remedies as opposed to slapping something on my skin that has so many ingredients, most I have no clue what they really are.
One major benefit of using natural ingredients is that there is no side effects (unless you are allergic to it) but natural remedies take a long time for visible results to be seen. However, the results are long lasting.
“Raw, unheated, organic honey has antibacterial properties that speed the healing of infections and wounds, including acne. It also contains antioxidants, which neutralize free radicals to promote healthy skin”.
It also helps with :-
- Acne: Honey is naturally antibacterial, so it’s great for acne treatment and prevention.
- Aging: Full of antioxidants, it is great for slowing down aging.
- Complexion boost: It is extremely moisturizing and soothing, so it helps create a glow.
- Pores: Honey is clarifying because it opens up pores making them easy to unclog.
Some of my favourite recipes are
Honey Almond Scrub - Mix equal parts of ground almonds and honey. This helps in removing all the dead cells and softening your skin.
Honey Exfoliator – Mix two parts honey and one part baking soda. This helps in gently exfoliating your face and body.
Honey Facial Cleanser – Mix honey with either coconut or jojoba oil. This helps in removing make up and unclogging your pores.
