7 Ways Honey Can Make Your Beauty Routine Sweeter

Not only is honey delicious, but it also is a beauty miracle-worker. Honey is antibacterial, moisturizing, clarifying, AND full of antioxidants. It’s time for you to sweeten up your beauty regimen with some raw honey.

1. Zap zits with a honey spot treatment

Instead of using your drying OTC pimple cream, dab a small amount of honey on your acne. Honey’s antibacterial and anti-fungal properties will help you achieve acne-free skin. The anti-inflammatory properties will also help to calm irritation and redness to reveal even skin.

2. Create your own hair conditioner

The antioxidants and enzymes in honey will give your hair shine without weighing it down. Mix one part raw honey with two parts coconut oil and then apply throughly to damp hair. Let the conditioner penetrate the hair shaft for 20 minutes before rinsing well to unveil soft and shiny hair.

3. Give your shampoo an extra kick

Adding honey to your shampoo will help to strengthen hair follicles for healthy growth because of the humectant properties of honey that help to regulate and retain moisture.

4. Make a DIY honey face and body exfoliator

Mix two parts honey with one part Arm & Hammer Baking soda to create a gentle exfoliating scrub. The baking soda acts as the exfoliator while the honey will soothe irritation as well as smooth the skin.

5. Make DIY facial honey mask

Cover your face with a thin layer of raw honey to unclog pores as well as to moisturize your skin. Apply the honey in a circular motion on damp skin. Leave the honey on for at least 30 minutes before gently rinsing it off with warm water.

6. Fight aging

Honey is a rich source of flavonoids and antioxidants that neutralizes the cell damage that’s caused by stress and free radicals.

7. Reduce the appearance of scars

Reduce scars from your face, body, and lips with a honey and olive/coconut oil mixture. Mix two parts honey with two parts olive oil/coconut oil and then apply the blend to the areas you want to treat. Massage the mixture into the treatment area for 3 minutes before laying a hot washcloth onto your skin. Once the washcloth has cooled, wipe off any excess oil. Continue this regiment regularly to expedite the fading process.
