“Well,” said Pooh, “what I like best,” and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn’t know what it was called.”― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh“God blesses him who found Honey!” Definitely honey needs no introduction, but a recommendation – Always have a jar full of it at home, all the time! Honey comes with amazing benefits! Its antibacterial properties help in cleansing.It has bleaching effects which is great for scar removal. It has moisturizing and soothing properties. It hydrates, softens, and is a rich anti-oxidant. Honey provides great strength to nails and it helps smooth skin. It is great for dark circles, and has anti-inflammatory properties which help calm dry skin related irritations.
Here Are 7 Ways To Treat Dry Skin With Honey:
1. Tomato With Honey
Natural bleach. Combining honey with tomato bleaches the skin twice, as much as honey can do alone. Mix squeezed tomato juice with honey, apply the mixture on face or areas on your dry skin. It not only bleaches, but also helps retain the moisture of the skin for a long time.
2. Honey Sugar Scrub
The best homemade scrub ever. Mix a tablespoon of sugar with honey and scrub gently on your skin. The hydrating property of honey makes the skin soft, while the scrub helps remove the dead skin. The results can be seen instantaneously.
3. Homemade Wax
In ½ a cup of water add sugar and bring to boil. Add lemon and honey to this mixture and stop the boiling, when a waxy consistency is obtained. Use an ice-cream stick to apply this wax and wax with strips or soft cloth. The wax works amazingly well and can be applied on face if you have dry skin and high facial hair growth.
4. Egg White And Honey Face Pack
The best face pack ever! Extract two eggs full of egg whites and add lemon and honey. Beat and mix well. Apply this mixture generously on your face and let dry completely. On drying, the mask gets a peel off mask like texture. This not only makes dry skin better but also tightens the skin and removes blackheads completely.
5. Lemon And Honey
A lemon and honey drink has its own benefits. When lemon mixed with honey is applied to skin, it provides whitening and smoothening effect. Since honey has hydrating properties, the dryness is removed and all that is left is a radiant smooth skin.
6. Honey With Banana
Banana has anti-inflammatory properties. When combined with honey, the power pack can be applied to the whole body. Scrub off the pack after drying. Wash yourself for a polished body. You will never need a beauty parlor to do this for you again. To add more scrubby effect, add oatmeal, soaked overnight and blended to a paste.
7. Honey With Avocado
Avocado is buttery, a great source for vitamins required for dry skin. While avocado fights and cleanses, honey soothes and exfoliates. The outcome is a well hydrated skin free from dryness.
