Honey, The Savior For Our Skin

Is there any one who doesn’t want flawless skin? I know that I can’t find any.😂😂 It’s true that trying to get that picture perfect skin is a series of never-ending battles against acne, dark circles, pigmentation, pale, lifeless skin, blackheads — oh, the list can go on. If you don’t take proper care of your skin regularly, this battle will never end. But, I’m not telling you to buy expensive products or to visit a salon for skin treatment by making a big hole in your purse. Rather, I suggest you some easy home remedies using natural ingredients from your kitchen shelf.

Why we should use Honey on our skin:

Honey is a skin saver with its antibacterial properties and being the natural source of antioxidants. Here are the benefits of honey:

  • Acne: With its antibacterial properties, honey treats acne and also prevents them attack your skin.

  • Aging: Being a natural antioxidant, honey slows down the aging process.

  • Complexion booster: Honey moisturizes skin and acts on any spots and pigmentation.

*Pores: As a clarifying agent honey opens up pores to unclog them easily.

How to use Honey effectively on the skin:

Here, I’m going to tell you different uses of honey for different skin types.

1. Honey As A Mask:

Take one teaspoon of honey and spread evenly on your clean face and leave it for at least 15 minutes. Rinse off with lukewarm water.

This mask will give you a well hydrated and moisturized face. Actually being a humectant honey draws the moisture from the air into our skin and locks it into the skin giving a long lasting hydrating effect. This mask treats acne and acne scar or other skin concerns too and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. It’s suitable for every skin type. If you use it before bed you can see a better result.

2. Honey Mask mixed with Milk and Sandalwood Powder:

This is a great face pack for detanning and drawing out impurities and pollutants from your skin.

Ingredients:

* 1 teaspoon of honey.

  • 1 teaspoon of milk ( the oily skin gals use curd instead of milk).

  • 1 teaspoon of sandalwood powder.

Mix all the ingredients to form a smooth paste, apply the pack on face and neck and leave it for 20 minutes ( oily and sensitive skin gals keep the paste only for 10-12 minutes). Rinse off with water.

3. Honey and Coconut Oil face pack:

Honey is known as fairness agent to lighten skin. It also helps diminish scars, cell regeneration and mixed with coconut oil help revive skin cells and improve the skin texture, giving you a healthier and smoother skin.

Ingredients:

  1. One teaspoon of honey.

  2. One teaspoon of coconut oil or olive oil or grapeseed oil.

Mix both the ingredients and apply on the face and neck, leave it for 15 minutes. Massage for 2 minutes and wash off with warm water. You can use the mask daily to get the glowing and flawless skin. Suitable for all skin types, especially for dry, matured skin.

 

Other uses of Honey:

  1. Honey is a good moisturizer for cuticles. Rub honey on cuticle on each nail, leave for 5 minutes and rinse off. You will get a soft and pink nail. If you wish can add lemon juice to it.

  2. Honey acts as a good hair conditioner. Mix honey with coconut oil and apply thoroughly on scalp and hair, leave for half an hour and rinse off with a mild herbal shampoo to get a lustrous and silky smooth and soft hair. This mask works magically on frizzy hair too. But those who have the oily scalp, don’t use on the scalp, rather I recommend you to apply on hair strands only.

Now the question comes in your mind, that’s what kind of Honey you will buy and from where. I use slimmer honey from the brand VLCC. You can get it from any local store or from Nykaa

Also, you can buy raw honey from Qtrove.

So, my friends let’s start this ritual from today to get that picture perfect skin. If you have any suggestion for using honey in some different way, please comment here, so that all of us can use and get benefitted.

Thanks for reading.
