It seems like such a simple and even basic ingredient, but honey is essentially the golden product when it comes to skin. This magic product has been used in beauty for centuries, dating all the way back to, who used the ingredient herself. The only products I saw my grandmother using was honey and turmeric and her skin used to shine like a star, like that highlighter glow we give to our skin now.
Why is honey so much effective?
There is no doubt in the fact that honey is a hero ingredient in dermatology. Honey has a high level of monosaccharides, fructose, and glucose, and it also contains a high level of sugar, which is why it tastes sweet. The anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and moisturizing properties make it an amazing product for both dry and acne prone skin. Honey also has bleaching properties, which help fade scars and pigmentation, leaving you with an even skin tone.
How to use honey to get Glowing Skin
1. Tomato and Honey
The perfect blend of tomato and honey is an excellent way for brightening and lightening your skin, as both these ingredient have bleaching properties. Mixed a half blend tomato with 1 tease spoon of honey and apply the mixture on clean washed face for 15 minutes and then rinse off with cold water. Do this twice a month to get long-term results.
2. Lemon and Honey
We all know the importance of lemon; it is an abundant source of natural sugar and fruity acids. The vitamins c in lemon helps in retaining skin health and combined with honey, they both help in lightening discoloration and balancing optimum PH level. All you have to do is mixed a half spoon of lemon with a spoon of raw honey and apply mixture for 20 minutes, that’s it!
3. Gram Flour and Honey
This is my go-to recipe for glowing skin, it gives an instant effect. The mixture helps soak up excess oil from the skin while clogging pores. This also helps in removing dead skin cells hence leaving your skin with a healthy and radiant look. Combined the honey and Gram flour with a half a spoon of lemon and make a consistent paste. Apply the paste on cleaned face for 30 minutes and then rinse the mixture off with lukewarm water.
You can always use honey in multiple way and with other products and you will never get a disappointed results.
