Should Honey be Added to Your Beauty Routine?

Honey can typically be found in most people’s kitchen cupboards to add some natural sweetness to their favorite foods and beverages.  But today, honey is making a big impact in the beauty world with skincare and hair product lines based on the healing benefits of the sweet nectar of bees.  The good news is you don’t have to go out and spend a lot of money on any of those products; honey in its raw form can really put some “buzz” into your beauty routine.

Treats Acne

Because honey is a natural antibacterial, it is perfect for the treatment and prevention of acne.  Next time you get a pesky zit, try applying a small amount of Propolis from Pevonia to the area. This honey-based product helps kill bacteria. Put it on your zit at night, and wake up to less-stressed skin in the morning!

Conditions Your Nails

For the weeks you can’t make it to the salon to get the perfect shiny manicure, try mixing a teaspoon of raw honey with a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and applying it to your nails and cuticles.  After 10 minutes, rinse off with water.  Honey makes your nails stronger while softening your cuticles. 

Fights the Signs of Aging

Antioxidants are well-known for slowing down the aging process, and honey is packed with natural antioxidants.  Making honey part of your healthy diet can help keep the free radicals at bay.  You can also apply a thin layer of Wild Naturals Manuka Honey Cream. Besides helping to soften wrinkles, it restores the pH of your skin and makes it super soft.

No More Embarrassing Bumps

We all get those annoying bumps around our bikini line every now and then from shaving.  Honey is a great way to soothe irritated skin.  Gently apply a small amount of raw honey as needed immediately after shaving.  Leave it on the affected areas for 10-15 minutes before rinsing off.

These are just some of the many incredible benefits raw honey is capable of providing your skin.  If you are looking for inexpensive, natural beauty solutions that you can do yourself at home, give raw honey a try!  

Love,

Gen
