The honey is one of the best products for hydration, and it is also excellent in the fight against other skin anomalies. We give you 9 ways how to use honey to take care of your face and body.
1. For hydration
Mix equal amounts of honey and extra virgin olive oil in order to make thick lotion. Apply it on dry skin and let it sit for 10 to 20 minutes, then wash it and your skin will be smooth.
2. Lip balm
Mix a teaspoon of honey with six grams of natural wax, 10 drops of lemon, two drops of oil with vitamin E and 50 grams of coconut oil. When you get an even mixture, you should separate the mixture into different containers that have lids and cover them.
3. Hair removal wax
Mix two teaspoons of yellow sugar, one teaspoon of honey and one teaspoon of water in a container that can be used in a microwave oven, and heat it in the oven until it gets brown color (about 30 seconds). Let the mixture cool off and add some water if it is too thick. Apply it on the skin with a small spatula, then put a strip of cloth over it, and by pressing it in the direction in which the hair grows quickly pull the strip in the opposite direction.
4. Hair product
Add a teaspoon of honey in your soap in order to cure the damaged parts of your hair. You can also mix it with some olive oil and apply it on the hair, let it sit for 15 minutes (10 minutes for the more heavily damaged parts), and then wash it with shampoo.
5. Cream bath
Mix two tablespoons of honey and 250 ml of warm water and let it sit for 10 minutes until the honey melts. Add 2-3 drops of lavender oil and pour everything in warm water.
6. Product against acne
Take some honey and apply it on the acne, and then put a band-aid over it and keep it for 30 minutes. (The honey is good for burns and scratches as well).
7. Face massage
Mix two teaspoons of milk with two tablespoons of honey. Apply the mixture on your face and let it sit for 10 minutes before you wash it.
8. Cure for warts
Apply the honey on the affected area two times a day, and you will see the results the following day.
9. Cure for sleeping
A glass of warm milk with a teaspoon of honey is better than a glass of warm milk, before going to bed. Too much sugar will awaken you and upset you, but just a little glucose will send a signal to your brain to turn off the orexin, a neurotransmitter which is responsible for keeping you awake during the day.
