1. FACE MASK
This super easy and quick face mask is my GO TO. I like to do this at least 1-2 times a week for glowing skin! "With its moisturizing and soothing effects, raw honey can hydrate the skin, leaving it soft, radiant, and glowing,” says Ildi Pekar, celebrity esthetician and owner of Ildi Pekar Skin Care.
Try it: Apply a thin layer of raw honey (raw honey contains all the nutrients and enzymes unlike supermarket honey that is stripped of its nutrients through the process). Leave on for 15-20 mins, then rinse and wash it off.
Tip: I like to steam my face while having this mask on for maximum benefits. Leaves your skin looking like glass.
2. SCAR FADER
Raw Honey is a great wound healer (especially eucalyptus honey). During World War I soldiers would use honey to heal wounds and prevent wound infection during the war. The antioxidants in honey nourish damaged skin while the anti-inflammatory properties in honey help reduce the appearance of redness around a scar.
Try it: Massage raw honey directly to the affected area in a circular motion for one to two minutes, then rinse it off.
3. GENTLE EXFOLIATOR
“This is one of my favorite benefits from honey,” Pekar says. “The enzymes in the honey work well as a gentle exfoliator, helping your complexion to be healthy and radiant. Your skin will glow!”
Try it: Take a small amount of raw honey and massage throughout your face in circular motions. Rinse and wash off.
4. FACE WASH
Once I found out the benefits of using raw honey as face wash I got rid of ALL my face-wash's! BUT.. I wear makeup? Well I got you girl, use coconut oil or jojoba oil (if you're acne prone) to remove makeup then with a warm wet pad/towel remove makeup, follow with a honey face wash! Honey has anti-bacterial properties to fight dirt and bacteria on your skin. Its also a humectant so while fighting bacteria its drawing moisture from the air into your skin. Leaves your skin glowing with its hydrating powers.
Try it: Take 1 tablespoon of raw honey, massage over face in upward circular motions, then rinse off and pat dry.
5. ACNE SPOT TREATMENT
Whether its a painful pimple in stage 1, 2, or 5 put some raw honey on that bad boy. Raw honey's anti-inflammatory properties reduces redness and swelling of pimples. The anti-bacterial properties can fight acne causing bacteria and the balance of these two can help slow down the production of excess oil.
Try it: Apply a small amount of raw honey to affected area, leave on for 15-20 minutes. Rinse and pat dry.
6. HAIR TREATMENT
Raw honey feeds strands the vitamins and minerals they need to thrive. It can make your hair more shiny from its hydrating and nourishing properties by its ability to lock in moisture for long periods of time.
Try it: Mix 1/2 cup of honey with two ripe bananas and one quarter cup of olive oil. Coat entire hair, put on a shower cap, and leave on for 20-25 minutes. Rinse then shampoo. Can be used two to three times a month.
