Honey Is A Beauty Savior

Updated on February 8, 2020

Honey Is A Beauty Savior

When you think about honey you picture it as a healthy sweetener. It’s added on bread, cereal, yogurt and other food items. However, honey can also make you look beautiful. The ingredients in honey can help with your skin and your hair. Honey helps with moisturizing your skin, helps with fighting bacteria and fights aging. Raw honey that has not been pasteurized or heat treated is the best to get because it has more enzymes in it and antioxidants.

Honey is naturally antibacterial, which makes it one of the reasons for a great face wash. With nothing more than a little raw honey, remove the dirt and debris.

Honey, organic and natural sweetener has several amazing properties. Honey is a wholesome food manufactured by honey bees by gathering the best of nature’s ingredients from flower nectar.

Choosing the right Honey

You can't go wrong with natural, locally-produced honey when buying honey to use for health or beauty purposes. Many honey farmers also sell unfiltered honey filled with pollen, pieces of honeycomb, and other good things that are filtered out by other producers. If you are only using honey for health-related purposes (such as treating wounds, etc.), you might want to start using manuka honey. It is a bit more expensive than normal honey, but it also has extra soothin

Use of Honey to glow skin

Moisturizes Skin

When applied to the skin, Honey acts as a humectant, meaning it helps attract and retain moisture in your skin. Honey draws moisture from the air, and that moisture goes into your skin directly. This helps with overall penetration and helps to hydrate your skin. Just take a teaspoon of raw honey, put it on dry, lean skin then let it sit for about 25 minutes. Rinse it with tepid water very well, and do this daily to help you get the results you want.

Honey Bath

Honey will moisturize dry skin and kill bacteria that can cause acne or body odor. Take a nice bath and sprinkle with the honey. It will help to repair your skin and protect your body from any oxidizing agents that help with the damage your skin has done environmentally. To make the body wash, combine two teaspoons of honey with a tablespoon of olive oil. To increase the spa experience, add essential oils such as lavender, almond oil, or vitamin E oil. These oils are soothing and provide a pleasant smell. If you’d like to turn your body wash into a scrub, combine with 1/2 cup of brown sugar.
Make sure that your body wash does not contain water—honey itself has a very long shelf life, but adding water can contribute to mold growth, spoiling the wash quickly. But the benefits of honey don’t stop there.


Consider using honey next time you get a sunburn. The reason honey helps with the treatment of sunburns is that it can restore hydration to the deep layers of your skin exposed to the sun. Just like aloe Vera, honey has some amazing anti-inflammatory drugs in it, which help to relax the burnt skin and aid in healing. Mixing a part of some raw honey with two parts of pure aloe Vera gel and applying it to your sunburn may do wonders for it. For a sweet body or face scrub add sugar or coffee grounds to the honey. Combine two to two tablespoons of honey, either, to create a paste. Rub this in a circular motion on your skin, and rinse with warm water.

Pore cleanser

Honey opens your skin pores when applied to your face to cleanse them and get rid of the blackheads. Mixed honey with oil such as coconut or olive, honey may become a remover and cleanser for killer makeup. Fill your skin with a few drops of both oil and honey to unblock pores. Rinse the mixture with a clean cloth and warm water. Its antioxidants, antiseptic and antibacterial properties help you to combat acne while keeping your pores free of oily dirt while keeping them hydrated and tight to give you a clearer complexion.

Unwanted Hair

Honey and lemon juice may be combined to form a natural hair removal solution. Honey and lemon juice together form a kind of wax, which can be applied to the skin and remove hair from the root, Mix one tablespoon of raw honey with three tablespoons of brown sugar and one teaspoon of lemon juice. Boil the mixture until it turns brown. After it cools slightly, add it to your skin with a popsicle stick. Apply a cotton strip and rub in one direction. Gently, but quickly pull the cotton against your hair to remove it.

Night Cough

Coughing is a common problem with upper respiratory infections. These infections can affect sleep and quality of life for both children and parents. This natural sweetener has been found to be just as effective in suppressing cough as a typical over-the-counter dosage of dextromethorphan, possibly because the honey acts as a demulcent, forming a film in the throat to relieve irritation Take 2 teaspoons before bed to ease coughing at night, and help you to sleep.

Loss weight with Honey

Honey is free from fat, free from cholesterol and free from sodium, and thus rightly called the sweet nectar of nature. But with the honey, can you actually lose weight? Drinking warm water with honey along with a tinge of lime early in the morning is believed to be an effective anti-cellulite treatment, as it helps to increase metabolism in the body. When you eat honey before bed, during those early hours of sleep, your body starts burning more fat. You can even take a step further and substitute all of your diet's refined sugar with honey to rebalance the brain signal that compels you to consume more sweets. Experts suggest to kick-start your day by adding a spoonful of honey and lemon juice (from half a lemon) to a cup of warm water. Not only does honey and lemon potion helps in weight loss, but also improves the immunity.

Sleep apnea

It can help you get a good night's sleep by taking a spoonful of honey before bed. Honey's natural sugars increase insulin levels significantly, allowing the sleep-inducing amino acid tryptophan to enter your brain and work out its magic, add a tablespoon of honey to a glass of warm water and drink it before going to bed
