I'm a retiree. I am interested in many things. Among other things, the fact of how important the bee is and what benefits it has for humans.

Honey is very useful for cosmetics

Honey cosmetic products are suitable for all skin types and all ages. It helps young girls to get sore, middle-aged, provides the skin with the necessary moisture, while older ladies shrink pores.

Honey is not only healthy, but it is also very useful in cosmetics. Due to its soothing effects and its ability to regenerate the skin, it can be used as a skin softener.

Honey has always been known for its healing effects and is also used extensively in body beauty treatments. You can make different masks from the honey. It is suitable for all skin types of all ages.

Do you agree that the bee is vital to humans?

In addition to being very healing honey, it is also environmentally friendly, as bees do not collect honey from flowers that have been sprayed.


Already ancient civilizations have known honey healing, moisturizingand softening power. Japanese women who are famous for their porcelain complexion adore it for its whitening properties and ability to repel skin glow. Full of minerals, vitamins, and amino acids, it softens and nourishes the skin. It gently cleanses and protects against bacteria and restores tenderness to it.

Honey contains vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, which are especially suitable for skincare during the colder months. It works by retaining moisture, soothes irritated skin, and is widely used in the manufacture of soaps, shampoos, lotions, creams, beauty masks, etc. It has antimicrobial action against many bacteria and some fungi. This is due to the high sugar content that prevents bacteria from spreading and the action of enzymes and other antibiotic substances.

In addition to all its valuable effects, it is environmentally friendly and basically pesticide free - bees are very clear creatures, they do not collect pollen from flowers that have been exposed to spraying.

Combination of honey and milk anti-aging

There are also known combinations of honey and milk, which have an extremely good effect on the skin.

From ancient civilizations, the tradition has been passed that the combination of honey and milk slows down the aging of the skin, which is only one of the many reasons that it is worthwhile to make preparations made from natural ingredients at home. For intensive facial skincare, make a honey and milk mask that will deep cleanse your skin and make it beautifully smooth.

Honey and milk mask:

Mix one to two teaspoons of honey with the same amount of milk. Then apply the mask to your face, optionally your neck and décolletage, and leave for ten to fifteen minutes. After this time, rinse the mask off the face with lukewarm water and apply a nourishing cream to the skin as needed.

For very dry skin, instead of two teaspoons of milk, give one teaspoon of milk and one teaspoon of olive oil.

Try some face masks made from honey

Glowing skin mask:

Honey stir in a few drops of lemon juice. Apply the mixture to your face and leave for twenty minutes. Then remove it with cotton wool. The mask gives the skin softness and suppleness.
