Sweet Sweet Honey for your face!

Honey from bees, unprocessed fine honey. Who would have thought that this miraculous product from bees can be used directly on your face? Actually it has been a long kept secret. It may seem weird putting honey directly on your face but think again, most soaps and beauty products actually have honey as one of their ingredients. So better yet just put it directly on face yes? YES. That's what I have been doing for the past 2 months.

I just get pure honey, put some on my fingers and then spread it all over my face and leave it on like a mask for about 20 mins (or more if you want!) then rinse with water. What I noticed was my face was well moisturized, and my pimples disappeared (because of its anti-microbial properties). Here's a little list on the benefits of honey and what you can do with honey for your body.

Information taken from: http://www.knowledgebase-script.com/demo/article-388.html

  • "Honey has anti-microbial properties and is known to treat minor irritations and sun burns.
  • It is a good substance that should be used in moisturizers, creams and other beauty products as honey has the ability to retain water.
  • One teaspoon of honey poured in a mug of water and if used for the last rinse will bring a shine to the hair. It will work wonders and make your hair soft and silky.
  • It works well with alpha hydroxy acids - it helps soothe the skin against an abrasive treatment.
  • Apply equal parts of honey and milk and leave for twenty minutes, you will notice a glow on your skin.
  • Honey fights against any kind of skin damage and ageing as it has antioxidant properties.
  • It also helps to fight against the damage caused by sun's UV rays.
  • Honey is one of the easiest foods to digest.
  • Honey is used in many cough syrups because its smooth, thick texture soothes throats.
  • As a result of honey's unique ability to readily absorb air, it is often used as a moistening agent in baking.
  • Honey comes in all types of colors and flavors. The color and flavor of honey depends on the how old the honey is and the kind of flower that the nectar was extracted from."

I really love the effect of honey to my face. Honey really is a wonder product. As we speak, my face has honey sitting on it, and I suggest you do the same. You will see your skin improve after a few applications. Honey won't just sweeten you food it can also help in improving your skin! :)

Toodles! :)
