When it comes to natural ingredients that are good for your health, you might already be aware of how amazingly beneficial honey can be. It contains soothing and anti-inflammatory properties which is why people consume honey so often. But did you know honey could also truly work wonders for your skin and hair? That's right, if you're wondering what beauty benefits honey has to offer, here are a few that you should totally be aware of. Take a look and thank us later!
Can work as an exfoliant - The stickiness in honey helps it grab impurities from your skin and pulls them out from your pores. All you need to do is 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. Leave the mixture on for another 5-10 minutes and then rinse it off.
Can help remove hair - Tempted to wax all that hair off but can't make it to the salon because of the pandemic? Well, worry not, honey will come to your rescue. 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. And your wax is ready to be used!
Can hydrate your skin - Honey is a humectant which means it contains amazing moisturising and hydrating properties. So, you could even use it in place of your moisturiser. All you need to do is apply some honey to your skin and leave it on for at least 15 minutes. Rinse it off with some cold water and you'll notice an instant difference in your skin.
Can condition your hair - If you thought the soothing and moisturising properties of honey only applied to your skin you are wrong, they also work for your hair. Since honey is full of moisturising properties it can help moisturise and hydrate your hair and scalp. Apply some honey to your hair and scalp and leave it on for about 30 minutes, then rinse it off. You'll notice how much softer and smoother your hair looks.
