7 Ways to Enhance Beauty with Organic Honey

By Joe Success - 4:28 PM

Utilizing honey as a beauty product is an old tradition, it was used in every civilization in one way or another. People today have forgotten about the enormous beauty uses of honey. It has been replaced by costly commercial products which are less effective and – in most of cases – could jeopardize your beauty in the long run. That’s being said, we decided today to enlighten our lovely readers about the different beauty uses of honey.

1. Facial cleanser

Honey is good at dissolving makeup residue, especially when mixed with a gentle oil. Combine honey and jojoba OR coconut oil to create an easily spreadable texture. Rub it into your skin, avoiding eye area, to loosen makeup and unclog pores. Rinse with warm water.

2. Scar fader

Honey is said to lighten skin, and its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial compounds help to decrease the appearances of scars and increase healing and tissue regeneration. The hydrating properties of honey and coconut oil or olive oil will also help revive skin cells, while regular, gentle massaging will increase circulation to aid skin recovery and cell turnover.

3. Skin exfoliate

By adding sugar or coffee grounds to honey you can make a great body or face scrub. It is very easy to make, just combine 2 tablespoons of sugar/coffee to 2 tablespoons of honey. Rub the mix onto your skin using circular motion and rinse it with warm water. This simple steps will help get rid of the dead skin cells on your body.

4. Remove unwanted hair

Honey is also used to make DIY wax. Mix one tablespoon of raw honey with one teaspoon of lemon juice and three tablespoons of brown sugar. Boil the mixture until it turns brown, wait until it cools slightly and add a thin layer to the skin with a Popsicle stick.

5. Sunburn treatement

Honey restores hydration to the deepest layers of sun-exposed skin—and both honey and aloe vera contain powerful anti-inflammatories to calm burned skin and aid recovery.

6. Hair shine boosting

There are two options. 1) Combine a spoonful of honey with a quart of warm water. Rinse through hair after shampooing. Let it condition for an hour, then rinse. 2) Mix 1-1/2 tsp honey with 5 cups warm water. Rinse through hair and leave on. Dry and style as usual.

7. Skin lotion

If you’re feeling that dry winter skin coming on, mix a spoonful of honey with a teaspoon of olive oil and a squeeze of lemon juice (a natural skin brightener). Apply this lotion to dry areas and let sit for 20 minutes. Wipe off with a warm washcloth.
