There are many people who have escaped acne using honey, while others have found that it helps to blur the scars left by it. Before using it on your face, make sure your hair is pulled back tight! If you have makeup on your face, you should clean it first.
Then, take one tablespoon of honey and rub it on. Let the honey act for 10-30 minutes (if you let in longer, it will be even more effective). Finally, rinse your face with warm water and dry the skin with a dry towel.
For an effective exfoliating treatment, mix one tablespoon of honey with 2 tablespoons of finely grounded almonds and half a teaspoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Gently massage the face using circular movements, for a minute, then rinse thoroughly with warm water.
Face mask with honey and turmeric
Turmeric has been used for centuries for cosmetic purposes due to its antiseptic properties, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. The honey and turmeric mask is recommended especially if you have dry skin, leaving your skin moisturized, glowing and radiant. You just have to mix a teaspoon of honey with the same amount of turmeric powder and 2 tablespoons of flour (preferably white rye). Mix the ingredients well until you get an orange paste, which you apply on your face. Leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse with warm water to remove the mask.
This balm will nourish your lips to perfection – you can put in little containers and thus you can offer it as gifts to your close friends. To make it, you need 3 tablespoons of grated wax and five teaspoons of coconut oil. Put these ingredients in a small pot and melt them over low heat for 20 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add ½ teaspoon of vitamin E oil and a teaspoon of honey, stirring well to avoid lumps forming. Once you have obtained a homogeneous paste, pour the balm into a container and let it cool down (about 3 hours) before using it.
If you want to moisturize your entire body, you can use a simple scrub: Mix 125 g of honey and 125 grams of sugar, then gently rub the mixture on the skin, preferably while you’re in the shower, and finally rinse thoroughly.
Honey is an excellent ingredient for hair care, as well. Combine it with extra virgin olive oil – 3 teaspoons each – to make a moisturizing mask for your dull and dry hair. Apply the mask on the entire length of hair, as well as on the scalp, then cover your head with a shower cap and let it act for 30 minutes. Wash your hair with shampoo, as you usually do, and rinse it thoroughly with warm water. Use this mask once or twice a week.
