5 Beauty Fixes Using Honey
Did you know this kitchen staple can do a lot more than sweeten your tea and morning yogurt? Honey is a natural cosmetic able to address a variety of beauty woes.
Hair removal: Honey is an excellent addition to your shaving or waxing routine, as it prevents bumps, redness and irritation. Apply honey directly to skin immediately after shaving and rinse after 10 to 15 minutes for smooth skin.
Fights & fades acne: Honey has natural anti-bacterial properties, making it excellent at fighting acne-causing bacteria. Honey also has a bleaching effect that can dramatically fade post acne scars and lighten dark spots.
Lip scrub: Combine a few drops of honey with a tablespoon of brown sugar for a tasty lip exfoliation experience.
Hair conditioner: Honey has natural moisturizing and softening properties, making it an excellent alternative for hair conditioner. Just combine a tablespoon of honey with two tablespoons of olive oil and evenly mix through your hair. Leave on for 20 to 30 minutes before rinsing with cold water.
Nail conditioner: Honey not only softens cuticles, but it can also strengthen nails. Mix a teaspoon of honey with a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and run onto nails and cuticles. Rinse after 10 minutes.
