All About the Honey!

When used in your beauty routine, honey soothes inflammation, hydrates the skin, and protects against bacteria. Fortunately, women today still incorporate this all-natural nectar into personal care. Here are three of my favorite DIY honey recipes you can get from the supermarket. For any of these recipes, remember that raw honey is best.

Firming Face Mask

  1. 1 Tablespoon honey
  2. 1 Egg white
  3. 1 Teaspoon glycerin
  4. 1/4 Cup flour

Whisk together honey, egg white, and glycerin, then add flour to form a paste (adjust the amount of flour to suit the texture you want). Slather mixture all over face and throat, and leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse of with warm water and enjoy soft, hydrated skin!

Honey & Avocado Nail Scrub

  1. 1 Tablespoon honey
  2. 1 Tablespoon avocado oil
  3. 1 Egg yolk
  4. 3 Drops of apple cider vinegar
  5. 1 Pinch of salt (preferably Himalayan Crystal Salt)

Mix all of the ingredients together and massage into nails and cuticles. Leave on nails for 10-15 minutes then rinse off with warm water. It’s best to use Himalayan Salt because it’s rich in minerals without any additives or pollutants. Alternatively, you can use kosher sea salt.

Almond Oil Hair Treatment With Honey

  1. 1 Cup plain yogurt
  2. 2 Tablespoons honey
  3. 2 Tablespoons almond oil
  4. 1 Tablespoon wheat germ
  5. 1 Pinch of salt (preferably Himalayan Crystal Salt)

Mix all ingredients in a cup, then coat hair and scalp with this mixture. Massage for a few minutes before you enter the shower. Rinse off in the shower with warm water and shampoo with a mild cleanser if you still feel residue in your hair.
