Honey can completely change your appearance when it comes to beauty. It has been around for ages but it will always take the lead when it comes to beauty. This is because honey does have natural healing properties. Want to have a skin as beautiful as Ciara’s? Check out these steps:
Moisturising face mask
With its moisturising and soothing effects, raw honey can hydrate the skin, leaving it soft, radiant, and glowing. The sugars in the honey act as natural humectants and emollients that increase the water content and reduce dryness in the skin even after they have been washed off. Apply raw honey directly on the skin and leave it on for up to 20 minutes, then rinse and massage it off thoroughly with water.
This is another key reason to use honey in your routine. The enzymes in the honey work well as a gentle exfoliator, helping your complexion to be healthy and radiant. Your skin will glow.
Honey is a great wound healer. The antioxidants in honey nourish damaged skin, potentially helping the scar healing process. Plus, honey’s natural antiseptic properties help prevent infections and protects wounds—which can reduce scarring and cut down on healing time.
Acne spot treatment
Honey has an anti-inflammatory which can help reduce redness and swelling of pimples, and its antibacterial properties can help fight acne-causing bacteria. Also, because honey keeps the skin well-hydrated and balanced, it helps control the production of oil.
Up your relaxation goals and take a honey-infused soak. Honey’s hydrating powers will leave the skin silky soft. To do this, Mix two big tablespoons of raw honey into one cup of hot water until the honey is dissolved. Pour it into a tub of warm water to soak.
Honey is naturally a perfect conditioner because it’s a humectant and retains and attracts moisture, keeping your hair feeling smooth and healthy. Your strands will feel soft, nourished, and have plenty of life and bounce.
Everything that makes honey a great skin moisturiser makes it great for chapped lips, too. The hydrating benefits of enzymes, antioxidants, and minerals work well to moisturize lips.
