We are working on our honey-based skincare products to add to our shop. As we read and discover all of the natural remedies for age old skin conditions and problems, honey is a consistent staple.
Honey has anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral properties and is therefore perfect for cleaning your skin and killing skin infections like acne. Honey is naturally hydrating and anti-inflammatory for the skin and offers a great way to enhance some other great skincare oils, exfoliants, and soaps.
You can use honey as a DIY face mask by using it alone or adding in any of these ingredients:
- Balancing – add lavender oil or flowers to your honey for a face calming treatment
- Moisturizing – add avocado to your honey to enhance the moisturizing properties and give your skin a hydrating boost
- Clarifying – add patchouli to clean and clarify your skin
- Nourishing – add oatmeal for a natural, gentle exfoliant and has great anti-inflammatory and moisturizing properties
These are just a few ways to enhance your skin and use your honey in your home. Do you have any great recipes? We’d love to hear what works well for you – let us know!
