Sweet Benefits of Using Honey on Your Face
Believe it or not, this pantry staple makes for a great addition to your skincare routine.
Honey isn’t just for drizzling sweetness to better our taste, but also has countless benefits to improve our skin. Honey as a skincare product dates back to Ancient Egypt, and was greatly adored by Cleopatra whose beauty was renowned the world over. Proclaimed as a natural way to hydrate and heal the skin, celebrities such as Julia Roberts, Olivia Culpo, and Scarlett Johansson don’t miss a day without including honey in their skincare regimen. Here are three reasons why we’ve now added honey to our beauty arsenal, and why you should too!
Goodbye large pores!
Mixing honey and water makes a simple, natural and effective face wash. It can draw out even the most deep-seated dirt from pores while giving you a tighter and more hydrated complexion.
Spots don’t stand a chance.
Honey houses a slew of antibacterial and anti-fungal properties that quickly treat acne worries. With a cotton swab, apply honey onto your problem areas and let it sit for 10 minutes. You’ll notice a decrease in inflammation almost instantly.
Be a glow getter.
Adding baking soda to your honey will give you that granular consistency ideal for exfoliation or as a mask. It contains hydrogen peroxide, a lightening property that can help get rid of pesky marks and dullness, and makes skin glow in the most natural way.
Before you start with this honey-based skincare routine, though, be sure to use only pure, natural honey. It’s the only type of honey that contains potent and copious amounts of antioxidants, antiseptic, and antimicrobial properties that can give the skin flourishing results. A great and affordable choice is Capilano Pure Honey: It’s extracted by Australia’s best beekeepers to give you the finest taste—and the purest quality.
