Okay, ladies. You know I have this thing for clean, double duty beauty, right? Let’s talk about honey.
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 hydrating honey mask that’s kind of the best thing ever.
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.
