Let's be honest, our skin needs a little pampering every once in a while. Thankfully that doesn’t mean spending thousands in a high-end salon every week (though, nobody would mind that!) There’s a bottle of nature’s goodness in almost every kitchen that does some incredible things to your skin and hair, and it doesn’t cost a fortune!
Full of antioxidants and nutrients, raw and unpasteurised honey is the only ingredient you need for beautiful skin and hair. The moisturising, healing and anti-bacterial properties of honey make it the go-to solution for every woman’s beauty woes.
Here are 7 Ways You Can Incorporate Honey In Your Daily Beauty Routine
Your home-salon sessions are going to get more effective after this.
Honey is a natural humectant that works wonders for dry skin. To moisturise your skin, apply a thin layer of honey on your face and neck and let it sit for 15 minutes. Wash off with lukewarm water.
If you don’t like the smell of raw honey, use the Glow on Girl, Egyptian Rose & Honey Face Wash from POPxo Shop for healthy and moisturised skin. The product also has the added benefits of Rose and Vitamin E.
You can also use honey to treat sun damaged skin. Make a gel by mixing one part honey and two parts aloe vera and store it in an airtight container. Apply this gel on the affected areas and leave it for 15 minutes. Wash with cold water.
Ditch those harsh chemical laden exfoliators that are doing more harm to your skin than good and switch to the natural scrub that is gentle on your skin. Gently rub your skin with a mixture of one tablespoon honey and two tablespoon oatmeal. The combined goodness of honey and oatmeal moisturises the skin and clears the pores of dust and grime. You can also use this mixture as a face pack to soothe and detoxify your skin.
The Brighter Than Sunshine, Honey And Oatmeal Face Pack from POPxo Shop has Aloe Vera, Vitamin E, Sandalwood and Argan oil, honey and oatmeal to improve the overall texture & appearance of your skin.
Honey has hydrating properties that make it an excellent conditioner for your hair. Mix a tablespoon of honey with 1-2 tablespoon of coconut oil (or any other oil of your choice). Apply the oil mask on your hair and let it sit for an hour before rinsing it off with a shampoo.
Honey’s antiseptic and anti-bacterial properties make it a pro at fighting acne and breakouts. Take a pea-sized amount of honey on cotton and dab it on the pimples. Wash with cold water after 15 minutes. Do this regularly to get rid of acne and zits permanently.
A luxe honey and milk bath not only helps you destress after a long day but also makes your skin soft and supple. To use honey as a bath soak, dissolve two tablespoons of honey and one cup of milk in a mug full of hot water. When the honey dissolves, mix this solution into your bath water and enjoy a relaxing and rejuvenating shower experience.
Don’t have a bathtub? No problem! You can use the Fresh n' Fab, Honey and Vanilla Gel Body Wash from POPxo Shop. It has the goodness of honey and milk and it'll leave your skin feeling super soft.
Thanks to its moisturising properties, honey works as a fab lip balm too! Take a coin-sized amount of honey and apply it on your lips. Leave it overnight. Say hi to softer and smoother lips in the morning.
Is there another product in your pantry as versatile and beneficial as this bottle of sweetness? Definitely not!
