Okay, ladies. You know I have this thing for double duty beauty, right? Well, I’m partnering with The National Honey Board this summer to help spread the word about honey’s usages outside of your kitchen. Yes, honey can be used for many other purposes besides making your buttered toast the best thing ever.
Did you know that honey is a natural humectant with antimicrobial properties? Yep. And as a natural humectant, honey attracts and retains moisture, two qualities that can keep skin hydrated and glowing? Yep. Honey has whole body benefits, my friends.
Personally, I love to use honey because it’s an anti-irritant, and is gentle on my sensitive skin. So! Let’s talk about what I do with honey for my skin. I make a mask that’s kind of the best thing ever. The Purely Honey Face Treat. Here’s how you do it. Get your ingredients.
- 1/4 cup – honey
- 2 Tablespoons – pomegranate juice
- 1 handful – pitted cherries
- 1/4 cup – plain yogurt
- 1/2 – banana, optional
Blend all the ingredients together. It will look like this.
You will probably want to eat it. Go ahead and sneak a taste – it’s pretty dang good.
After you eat half of it, apply to clean, dry skin. Leave on for 15 to 20 minutes, then remove with damp sponge or a soft facial cloth. Pat dry and apply moisturizer.
Voilá! Fresh, moisturized skin. I’m a fan.
