9 Amazing Ways to Use Raw Honey for Gorgeous Skin

Raw honey is pure, unpasteurized and unprocessed, hence it works wonderfully as a beauty ingredient. Unprocessed honey retains all the nutrients and enzymes within. The side effect of having raw honey is the bacterial contamination. So, it is wise to use raw honey as soon as you get. Raw honey is best used as a facial cleanser as it gently removes impurities without stripping off the moisture. It is a great exfoliator and provides a lot of moisture and nourishment to your skin. The anti-bacterial property of raw honey makes it perfect for acne-prone skin. Also, it is a great moisturiser for the dry and mature skin. So, today, I thought of sharing a few ways to use raw honey for a great skin. Read on to know more.

Honey facial cleanser

Honey facial cleanser will help in removing dirt, impurities and excessive oil without stripping off the moisture from the skin. Along with raw honey, the cleanser is loaded with the benefits of a carrier oil and an essential oil as well. This cleanser will keep your skin clean and radiant, but do not expect it to remove your makeup.

How to make: For this honey cleanser, you will need half a cup of raw honey, 3-4 tablespoons of distilled water, 2 tablespoons of a carrier oil and a few drops of an essential oil. If you have dry skin, use a combination of avocado and lavender essential oils. If you have normal skin, opt for jojoba or olive oil and bergamot essential oil, and if you have oily or acne-prone skin, use grape seed oil with tea tree essential oil. So, after finalising your oils, mix all the ingredients together in a soap dispenser. Your honey facial cleanser will be ready. If raw honey is too thick for your liking, use a double boiler to make honey soluble.

Honey exfoliator

Raw honey and sea salt work great as an exfoliator. They help in removing dirt and cleansing the skin while keeping it moisturised. Plus, it can keep acne at bay and your skin healthy.

How to make: Take equal portions of raw honey and sea salt. Add a few drops of lemongrass essential oil and geranium essential oil. Mix all the ingredients and your honey exfoliator is ready. Use it as any other exfoliator on damp skin.
