Quick Tip Monday!!!
Honey is not only delicious on toast and in teas, but also great for the skin.
How To Use Raw Honey…
Honey as a daily face cleanser.
All you need is a quarter size amount of raw honey* (available at your local grocer). Simply massage it in an upward circular motion and then rinse off with warm or lukewarm water. You will notice immediately that your skin is baby soft and has a natural glow.
I, myself, no longer even need a moisturizer because my honey is now a two in one, which helps to save money!
Honey as a make-up remover.
Honey alone will not remove makeup, but Jessica listed a DIY honey facial wash which I’m excited about. Mixing your favorite natural plant oil (e.g., Coconut or Jojoba Oil) and spice (Cinnamon, Turmeric, or Nutmeg) for an aromatic treat, will loosen up your makeup AND moisturize the skin at the same time. Yay!
Honey as an exfoliate.
Add to baking soda and use as a mask by apply a thin layer to your face for 30min. It can also be added to bath water (2 cups) to soften your body, and/or to your favorite hair conditioner as a deep conditioner.
**Here’s the bottom line: I am encouraging you to surrender your normal facial cleansers and moisturizer’s because of all the synthetic chemicals (found in most) for honey which is much more beneficial for our delicate skin cells.
We may not be able to dodge every synthetic chemical we encounter, but we can most certainly lower the amount manufactured substances we expose our skin to.
Here’s to your health!
