Honey in service of beauty

Honey for skin care? In fact, honey is one of the best things you can put on your face, tames unruly hair and fights against pimples. Here are some easy beauty recipes with honey!

Body lotion

If you have problems with dry skin, you can find salvation in honey. Mix equal amounts of honey and olive oil to make a thick lotion. Rub the skin with the lotion and let it act for 10-20 minutes.

Lip balm

Honey will solve the problem of dry and chapped lips. Mix 1 teaspoons honey and 1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice. Apply it to the lips and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Put the rest of the mixture in a small bowl with a lid. You can keep this lip balm in the fridge even a few months.

For depilation

Mix 2 tablespoons brown sugar, 1 teaspoon honey and 1 teaspoon of water. Place in the microwave and let it warm for about 30 seconds. Allow to cool and add more water if needed (if the mixture is too thick). Using a small spatula, apply the mixture on your skin, put a waxing strip and drag in the direction of hair growth.

Hair care

Add 1 teaspoon of honey in your shampoo to reduce damage to the hair. You can also mix honey with 1 teaspoon of olive oil for deep hair regeneration. Apply to dry skin and let it act for about 15 minutes before the usual washing of your hair.

For a revitalizing bath

Mix 2 tablespoons of honey with 250 ml of water and let it stand for 10 minutes. Add 2-3 drops of lavender oil, then pour the mixture into bathwater.

For pimples

Honey has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, which makes it an excellent ally against pimples and acne. Put a little honey on the area where you have pimples and let it act for about 30 minutes.

Face mask

Mix 2 tablespoon of milk with 2 tablespoons of honey. Apply this mixture on your face and let it sit for 10 minutes. Then rinse with lukewarm water.

Nail cream

Mix 1 teaspoon honey and 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil. Apply this on your nails and let it act for 30 minutes. You can put the rest in the fridge for later use.

For unruly hair

Mix 1 teaspoon of honey with a little water. Wash your hair as always, and then rub the honey and rinse with lukewarm water.

Body scrub

Mix a little polenta or oatmeal with honey. You can add a few drops of lemon juice. Rub into your skin and rinse. Polenta or oatmeal will remove dead skin cells, the lemon juice will refresh the skin and honey will make the skin softer.
