You know what they say, a tablespoon of honey a day, keeps the allergies away. But what else is honey used for? Honey has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties which helps calm the skin and promote tissue rejuvenation. Well, I’ve got some great tips of how to incorporate honey into your daily/weekly beauty routine.
First up is my personal favorite, face masks. I make sure to take time to refresh and rejuvenate my skin with a face mask weekly. Honey has been a go to again and again. (Along with my deep sea mud mask!)
Honey Face Mask
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of lemon juice/squeezed lemon
1 tablespoon of raw honey
Another one of my faves, is a good body/face scrub. So this Honey and Sugar scrub is perfect to get rid of dull, dry skin and give you polished, radiant skin. You can use this scrub on your legs before you shave (exfoliated skin gives a smoother shave!) or use it as a face scrub once a week.
Honey & Sugar Scrub
I cup of raw honey
1 cup of sugar (you can do more or less, depending on the consistency you like best.)
Add 1-2 drops of essential oil (this step is optional, but I like to add a few drops of lavender oil to my scrub.)
And during the winter when your lips are super chapped, try this lip scrub.
Honey Coconut Lip Scrub
1 tablespoon of sugar
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
a few drops of honey
