Why honey? Tips and tricks on how to use honey in your daily skincare routine.
Honey is natures perfect moisturizer. Naturally anti-bacterial, it provides moisture to the skin along with so many other benefits. Did you know it never spoils? Honey is naturally acidic with a Ph of 3.5-4 and low in moisture, making it an inhospitable environment for bacteria. When Honey is directly applied onto the skin it can help heal cuts, reduce scarring and treat acne. Honey is also a natural humectant which means it draws moisture to your skin.
Here's how you can use Honey in your daily routine:
-Use it as a mask for 20 minutes once to twice a week. Leave the honey on your skin for at least 10 minutes then rinse off with warm water.
-Use as a blemish treatment. Dab on spots or acne and leave on for 10-15 minutes. Rinse with warm water.
-For soft skin, use Honey as your body wash!
**Side Note** If using Honey as your body wash be sure to rinse off immediately after so the acidity of the Honey doesn't stay on your skin too long and create discoloration. Honey contains trace amounts of hydrogen peroxide. This might give it mild lightening properties, which is particularly helpful when it comes to resolving pesky post-acne marks and hyperpigmentation.
-Use as a daily hair mask by applying some honey to your damp hair then rinsing off after 30 minutes!
BONUS TIP: If your hair is very long, use Honey as a pre-shampoo leave in treatment to restore hydration and shine!
Honey has so many uses and we can't say enough wonderful things about it. Honey has been used for hundreds of years, and we believe everyone should be adding this wonderful moisturizer to their skincare routine.
