Winter is always a good time to indulge in that pure and rich taste of honey. But did you know that the benefits of honey go far beyond satisfying winter cravings? Add honey to your shopping list and treat yourself with these simple and natural honey beauty treatments.
Take a Dip!
We all enjoy a soothing bath at the end of a long day, especially during the colder months. Next time you indulge in a lovely soak, be sure to add a quarter cup of honey and your skin will have a gorgeous glow as it works wonders for your circulation.
Add Some Shine
If you just can’t seem to add life to your hair, and you have tried practically all available commercial hair treatments, try this: shampoo your hair as usual and then apply a mixture of one teaspoon of honey, a squeeze of fresh lemon, and some warm water throughout your hair. Leave for 10 minutes and rinse.
The Perfect Beauty Mask
Mix together two tablespoons of honey with two teaspoons of milk or cream. Smooth it on to your face and leave in place for about 10 minutes; then rinse. Your face will glow beautifully!
To Fight Blemishes
If you have oily or blemished skin, try warming a small amount of honey and massaging it on to your skin. Leave on for 5 minutes and then rinse off with warm water. Your skin will clear up quicker than usual.
Mix It Up!
A mask of grated apple and honey can add super luster to your dull complexion while the combo of mashed avocado, 2 tablespoons of honey, and one egg yolk can add fantastic moisture. Apply either mask to your face, leave on for about 20 minutes, and then rinse off.
