The morning glow
Consuming Honey on a daily basis also helps you in getting that ‘beauty sleep’ which eventually leads to a better and glowing skin.
Let the skin breath
A layer of honey on the face unclogs pores. Put it on a damp skin in circular motion, leave it on for 30 minutes and then rinse gently with lukewarm water for a soft and radiant skin.
Swab, dip, dab, rock!
A swab of Honey is what you need to get rid of that stubborn acne. Dip cotton in Honey and dab it on the pimple. Additionally, to wake up with a fresh and de-stressed skin, apply a light amount of Honey on your face and leave it overnight.
Take down the makeup
Honey makes a great cleanser to dissolve makeup. Create a mixture of Honey and Coconut or Jojoba oil with tea tree or lavender oil and make it balmy enough so that it slides across the face. Throw in a pinch of turmeric, cinnamon or nutmeg to give the face an aromatic treatment.
A simple concoction made from Honey makes a great scrub. Use it once or twice in a week to exfoliate the skin from head-to-toe.
Bye-bye, dry and parched skin
When the chilly air of the winters is giving a hard time to your skin, Honey can soothe and moisturize. Add two cups of it to a running bath, soak for 15 minutes, your skin won’t be able to thank you enough.
The treasure filled with ‘liquid gold’ for a smooth, plum and beautiful skin is all yours!
