I love me some HONEY. Sometimes I just prefer to use natural ingredients on my skin because if you think about it ALOT of beauty products are made with natural ingredients but the difference is that it's processed AND PROCESSED. Honey has several benefits to our skin and hair. It's a basic ingredient for homemade face or hair masks. 

Honey is a sweet treat for hair & skin because it has the ability to absorb and retain moisture. Honey can be used to treat minor acne and sun burns. This golden syrup has helped me in so many ways its hard for me count. Its been a staple ingredient when it comes to skin and hair care. 

Below are my favourite recipes using honey: 

Honey & lemon face mask
1TSP Honey
1tsp of fresh lemon juice 

This recipe is awesome for people who suffer from hyperpigmentation or acne scarring. If you have sensitive skin I will not advice you to use lemon juice as the acidity level of the lemon might upset your skin. I apply the mixture on freshly cleansed skin. I leave the mixture on for 5-10mins then follow up with my regular toner and moisturiser.

Honey & milk
1cup fresh milk
1/2 cup honey

I’m sure alot you people are familiar with this ancient recipe. This is my go to recipe every time I have an eczema breakouts. The measurement above is for both face and body. After a good wash in the shower, I massage the mix all over my face & body and let it sit on my skin for 20mins before I rinse it off. You can listen to music or watch one of my tutorials while you wait for the magic to happen.

Honey, coconut oil, orange juice & brown sugar body scrub
1/2 cup honey
5 TSP of coconut oil
1/4 Orange juice
1/4 brown sugar

If your want to restore the glow back to your skin, a good body scrub will do the trick. If you don’t like sugar scrubs,sea salt is a perfect alternative.

Honey , coconut oil, argan oil & rhassoul clay
1/4 cup honey
7 TSP of coconut oil
5 TSP of argan oil
1/2 cup rhassoul clay

The measurement for the hair mask should be altered according to the length of your hair. I have collar bone length so this is just about the right amount to cover my hair. Apply to freshly washed,conditioned  and detangled hair. Apply in sections as this prevents the hair from tangling again, then cover with a plastic shower cap for as long as you like to keep your deep conditions in. Rinse and follow with your regular routine.

Remember I’m not a skin specialist or expert. Everyone’s skin is different so I advice you do more research and make sure you do an allergy test before hand.

Stay Pwetty
