If you’re wondering how to use honey to get glowing skin, look no further. Used since ancient Egypt in Cleopatra’s beauty routines, honey is a natural remedy commonly present in all kitchens. Natural honey will not only help your skin glow and radiate, but due to its antioxidant and antibacterial properties it can also help you fight aging and acne.
What kind of honey I need to get glowing skin:
The natural honey, organically produced, in a cruelty-free bee farm is excellent for dermatological treatments. Industrialized honey undergoes chemical procedures that could decrease its natural properties.
Of course, there are many types of honey; even some are produced only with a specific kind of nectar. When using it for cosmetic purposes, try to focus on avoiding those with added sugars and other industrialized sweeteners.
Why honey is great for your skin
Natural honey has a complex composition rich in nutrients. It also contains enzymes, antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins, minerals and organic acids which provide therapeutic properties in all kinds of treatments. Dermatologically, the main benefits of honey are:
- Bactericidal: The presence of hydrogen peroxide, flavonoids, and phenolic acids makes it perfect to treat acne, heal burns and to exfoliate the skin.
- Antioxidant properties: Antioxidants are natural substances that prevent the formation of oxides, which slow cellular decomposition at all levels. Your heart, connective tissue, and your skin will benefit from honey in all its presentations and forms (but especially on top of pancakes).
How To Use Honey To Get Glowing Skin at home:
It’s easy! Put it on your freshly cleaned face! My personal favorite is using it in a homemade facial mask made mixing honey, oats and ground red apple. Apply it on your face and let it sit for 15 minutes. Not only does it make your skin look glowy and fresh, but it also moisturizes and fights acne due to honey’s bactericidal and antiseptic effects.
For anti-aging effects take a brush and apply a tablespoon of honey mixed with egg white. Distribute it from your cleavage to your forehead, avoiding placing it around the eyes. 15 minutes later remove it using only cold water and neutral soap. Baby skin at home! Guaranteed!
