You’ve probably heard that honey is good for you but we bet you didn’t know all the ways it could be used in your skin, hair, and beauty care routines! Honey is an incredibly multipurpose substance and whether you’re eating a spoonful in the morning with your breakfast or applying a layer on to your face you’re bound to see an improvement in your physical experience. Here are just some of the things you can do with honey!
1) Fight off acne
Honey contains many properties that are beneficial for fighting off acne. You can use your honey as an anti-acne cleanser by applying a thin layer to your face. Focus especially on areas that are more affected by acne. After 10 – 15 minutes wash off the honey thoroughly with warm water. Use this method around 3 – 4 times a week and you’ll quickly see an improvement in your skin!
2) A Treatment for Scars
Going along with the first use, honey will not only reduce the appearance of acne, it will reduce the appearance of scars as well. Use honey for any scars you may have anywhere on your body. Apply for at least 15 minutes and wash off. Honey has natural bleaching properties which will reduce any discoloration that’s present.
3) A Hair mask/conditioner
Honey has many properties that make it an incredible moisturizer. Not only will honey work wonders on your skin, it’s amazing for your hair as well. It will make your hair softer and shinier. Mix one tablespoon of honey with two tablespoons of olive oil. Apply thoroughly to your hair and leave it in for 20 – 30 minutes. Rinse it out with water. You don’t need to apply a shampoo or conditioner because the honey will take the place of both!
4) Dark Circles
Honey is a miracle product when it comes to dark circles around your eyes. Apply one tablespoon of money mixed with a bit of almond or lavender oil on the circles around your eyes for 10-15 minutes and rinse off with water afterwards. Use this method twice a week and you will begin to see your dark circles fade.
