I Just Can’t Get Enough of You, Honey
Many of you might be confused by this statement. “Why honey? I thought that was only something used to sweeten our biscuits and tea?”
Alas, there is much more to honey than being the natural and healthy substitute for refined sugar. Honey has been used on skin for centuries. It is speculated that Cleopatra used honey to wash her face, keeping it blemish free and glowing. Those bees know what they’re doing when they make that honey.
Benefits of Raw Honey
Balances Skin PH level
Full of Antioxidants and Nutrients
Honey is literally a one-stop-shop for all of your skin care needs! It keeps breakouts at bay, keeps skin supple and moisturized which prevents wrinkles, and with all of the antioxidants your skin will be so clean and healthy!
However! Like all things in life- quality is extremely important. Those bear shaped honey containers have been processed so there is nothing good left! The key is raw, unfiltered honey, preferably local. That honey hasn’t been heated, so none of the beneficial nutrients has been killed. The absolute best honey is Manuka honey, but it is quite expensive so raw honey will do just fine.
How To Wash Your Face With Honey:
1-2 Tsp of honey
Hot & cold Water
*optional* add in a drop of essential oil for added benefits
1. Dampen face with warm wash cloth
3. Massage honey onto face with fingers in small, circular motions.
4. Leave on for at least 30 seconds, but 10-15 minutes is best.
5. Run the washcloth under really hot water (but don’t burn yourself now.)
6. Then place over your face to kind of steam it for about thirty seconds or until the washcloth isn’t hot anymore.
Et viola! Adding honey into your skincare routine is super simple and has a ton of benefits- win win win all around.
