Honey is a staple in our home. I love to use it in my tea and coffee, on bagels and waffles, but most importantly, I love to use honey in my beauty routines. I love finding natural ways to take care of my skin and hair and you better believe I was all about using honey on my face and hair! Honey is a great addition to any beauty routine if you’re looking for some new, natural products. Here are some of my favorite ways to add honey to my beauty routines!
Dry Lips: During the winter, my lips are dry, chapped and always in pain. Instead of spending tons of money on a new exfoliant, try some honey! Just apply a thin layer of honey to your lips before going to sleep. You’ll wake up with a new set of lips, soft and full as ever.
Acne: If you’re tired of spending tons of money on expensive skin care products, look no further. Honey has tons of antibacterial and antifungal properties. Dab some honey on your blemishes, cover it with a band-aid and wash off in the morning. It’ll dry those imperfections up and leave you with soft, blemish-free skin!
I’ve struggled for so long to find that “natural glow”, even with super expensive products. There are so many mixtures you can use for a bright, glowy finish. My favorite is half honey, half aloe vera and apply to your whole face before bed.
I absolutely loathe blackheads. They drive me crazy and so far, I’ve got nothing to combat them. Enter honey! Mix a little bit of honey and lemon juice and apply to your t-zone!
Split Ends: Split ends are the worst! Try mixing a little bit of olive oil, a tsp of honey and a tiny bit of lemon juice. Apply to your ends and kiss your split ends goodbye!
Bleach is not your friend but we all want some fresh color every now and then. Instead of heading to the salon for a bleaching treatment, honey can help you out, too! Yep – I’m serious. Mix one tsp of honey with chamomile tea. Apply to your hair and leave overnight, rinse in the morning!
Taking care of your hair and skin seems impossible sometimes. There are so many products at so many different price points and it can get expensive, quick. Natural products are always my go-to but make sure to talk to your doctor or dermatologist for sensitive skin or prior approval. What are some of your favorite natural hair and skin remedies?
