It's no secret that honey contains a plethora of amazing properties. It contains anti-inflammatory properties that can help keep infections at bay and it also contains moisturising properties that can work wonders for not just your skin but even your hair. Most people even tend to consume honey on a daily basis due to these fabulous properties. Did you know that it can also work rather well for your skin and hair? That's right, honey also has beauty benefits. Here are some you probably didn't know about.
Can work as an exfoliator - Honey sticks to your skin and helps unclog your pores once it is scrubbed off. Mix a spoonful of honey with 1/2 tbsp of oats to make a scrub. Apply the scrub to your face and gently massage your skin for a few minutes. Let the mixture sit on your face for another 5-10 minutes and then rinse it off.
Can help remove hair - Since we can't really step out to go wax our skin, why not just do it at home with the help of some honey? Mix half a cup of honey with 1 cup granulated sugar and 1 tbsp lemon juice and heat the mixture until everything is mixed properly. Once it cools down a little, start applying it and wax away.
Can condition your hair - Since honey has moisturising properties, it can also help condition your hair from deep within if you use it as a hair mask. Mix some honey with your hair mask if you have any (or use honey by itself) and apply it to your hair. Leave it on for 30 minutes and then rinse it off with water.
Well, now that you know just how beneficial honey actually is, we say you start incorporating it into your beauty regime as soon as possible. You'll see just how beneficial it can be for you. Stay tuned for more updates.
