I would like to share with you some basic knowledge on honey and skin care, one of the most popular topics amongst the female honey fans. With the wide-ranging of natural skin care recipes using honey, it is no wonder why there exists a huge number of honey products in the market for hair care, baby care, skin care for sunscreen, hand lotions, facial scrubs and moisturizers. However, before you spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on all those anti-aging and moisturising creams, you may want to try some easy home-made tonic and remedies with honey first. Don't forget, the main ingredient in those costly skin care products in the store could possibly be honey!
Really, there may be no simpler way to bring a smooth glow to your skin than with DIY honey beauty recipes. Honey's ability to absorb and retain moisture make it an ideal ingredient in a lot of cosmetics as it helps keep skin hydrated and fresh and prevents drying. It is known that ancient beauties regularly applied a mixture of honey and milk to the face to keep the skin young-looking, radiant, and smooth.
Honey absorbs impurities from the pores on the skin, making it an ideal cleansing agent. Its natural antioxidant and anti-microbial properties help to protect the skin from the damage of the sun's rays, supports the skin's ability to rejuvenate and refresh depleted skin, leaving it feeling silky soft and supple.
One of the most common natural skin care benefits with honey is related to treatment of acne which could be caused by hormonal changes or "heatiness in the body", as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) would call it to refer to the imbalance of yin and yang in the body. For instance, not only the Manuka Honey can be used as an efective lip balm and and natural skin moisturiser as it contains sun protection properties to soothe and protect the lips from becoming dry and chapped in cold and dry weather, it also possesses high levels of anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that are useful for treating acne-probe skin.
